Final: Indians 5, Pirates 1
WP: Josh Tomlin (8-4)
LP: Kevin Correia (8-6)
The Pirates’ bats fell silent again tonight, as they dropped the 1st game of the weekend series, thus snapping their 4 game winning streak. Kevin Correia was shaky, but kept the team in the game as he gave up 2 runs (1 earned) over 5 2/3 innings. Resop entered the game in relief of Correia in the 6th inning with 2 outs and the bases loaded and did an excellent job to get out of it without allowing a run. Resop would then pitch a 1-2-3 7th inning.
The Pirates’ lone offense came in the 6th inning when Xavier Paul singled in Ronny Cedeno, who led off the inning with a double.
Daniel Moskos would allow 3 runs without retiring a batter in the 8th inning to put the game out of reach.
Paul Maholm will be on the hill tomorrow as the Bucs look to even up the series.
