Indians stuff

From the castroturf blog...

(The title of this was "He's a ringer." And I have to agree, isn't it interesting that we can have someone like this playing AA ball in the playoffs? I am sure the other team is not thrilled.)

Travis Hafner's grand slam capped a five-run rally in the bottom of the second inning, as Double-A Akron went on to a 6-2 win over Bowie in game three of the best-of-five Southern Division Championship Series. The Aeros now lead the series, 2-1.

Hafner went 1-for-3 with the grand slam and a walk.

Pronk will be back in the Akron lineup for game four, which takes place at 6:05 p.m. ET Saturday. Hafner's rehab assignment expires after Saturday, so expect to see him back with the Indians next week.


I did not get to see or hear any of tonights game, but the way the scoring happened is somewhat silly, I think.

Every SINGLE run of the 9 the Indians scored, came in off the bat of either a SINGLE or a DOUBLE PLAY, and in fact, Ryan Garko hit into both of the double plays that scored runners. It is my understanding that you don't get RBIs for that sort of thing. So that is 7 RBI singles, and two non-RBI Double Plays.
