Boxscore: Indians 5, Rangers 4

For the three of us that saw it, this was an unexpected treat.  A Matola jack. A Kipnis smash.  A ninth inning comeback.  Reminded me of better days.

    3 Errors? Didn’t watch, but if are not one of the teams with a lot of stars, you have to do the little things right

    flipped between the game and the Bear v. Packer game.

    LaPorta was the best player on the Tribe last night. It was only one night, but he had at least 2 clean short-hop snares at 1B and he was raking at the plate. If only he could do this for a larger sample size (which he has proven pretty consistently that he cannot).

    Kipnis had a HR, but he looked really bad in his other PAs. His SO in (i think the 6th?) was terrible as he swung and missed at a ball that looked like a meatball over the middle of the plate.
