Lewie Pollis of WahoosOnFirst looks at the day that was as the Indians swept the day night doubleheader from the Chicago White Sox. The Tribe won the first game 8-6 as Zach McAllister earned his first major league win and Nick Hagadone his first major league save. The Indians used timely hitting en route to a 3-2 victory in a rain delayed night cap.
Katie Hendershot of WoF takes a look back at the week that was for the Cleveland Indians in her column This Week In Indians Baseball.
One of my personal favorite Web-Sites is Plunk Everyone. A web-site devoted to the hit by pitch or as the administrators there say a web site dedicated to "all those players who won't get out of the way." Yesterday, Travis Hafner became a headline becoming tying the all-time franchise leader (Napoleon Lajoie) in hit by pitches. A record which has stood since 1914.
Travis Hafner got plunked by the White Sox last night, his 11th against that team, and the 79th plunk of his career. That ties Hafner with Napoleon Lajoie for the Indians franchise plunk record. That record has stood since 1914, but Hafner has now tied it. The White Sox have contributed more to that than any other team, with their 11 plunking of Hafner. There are now 6 active players who hold at least a share of the plunk record and two more active players who hold the plunk record for a team they used to play for. That was also the 44th time Hafner has been plunked at Progressive Field, extending his park record.
