"One hit? That's all we got, one god damned hit?"

This is why I love the Cleveland Indians. They led off the game with a Grady Sizemore double, then never got another base hit for the rest of the game. And they won. Yes, they won the freaking game.

Sizemore's double was followed by a passed ball that moved him to third, and he scored on a groundout. The Tribe led 1-0.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, Casey Blake walked to open the inning. He reached third when Jhonny Peralta hit a grounder to third, and Joe Crede botched the throw. Jose Contreras then walked the bases loaded, and couldn't find the strike zone on Sizemore, walking in the Tribe's second run.

C.C. Sabathia made the 2 runs count, holding down the White Sox for the remainder of the game. C.C. is now 3-0 and the Indians have the best record in the American League.


Oh, and the Bulls laid a serious beatdown on Washington today, 101-68. It's going to take a serious effort from New Jersey to knock them off Wednesday night, and if Chicago plays like they have been, even Detroit should be terrified of them.

Between Chicago and Cleveland, three total games are left in the regular season. All three have to go our way, or the Miami Heat are coming to town for Round 1.
