Tribe Heating Up

Don't look now, but the once 0-5 Cleveland Indians are getting hot. Sure, a 6-5 stretch isn't exactly world-beating, but compared to what the Indians did in the first week of the season, it is a godsend. After splitting a 4-game series at Yankee Stadium where the offense came to life, the Indians won their series at home against Kansas City with a 5-2 comeback win today after a fantastic start by the Royals' Gil Meche. The Tribe will look to continue their hot streak vs. the Twins, another contender in the closely contested yet mediocre Central Divison.

Players of today's game: Grady Sizemore, 3 R GW-HR and Kerry Wood, a 1-2-3 save with 2 Ks! Boy is it nice having a flamethrowing, stud closer! Now if only the rest of the bullpen would catch up...

Columbus Watch: David Dellucci has hit .417 in three starts at DH in AAA Columbus for his rehab start. Josh Barfield is hitting .300 since being sent down to make room for SP Aaron Laffey.
