Indians complete sweep with walk off win

Published on June 19, 2011 by in Game Recaps

Final: Indians 5, Pirates 2

WP: Tony Sipp (3-0)
LP: Tim Wood (0-1)

Once again, the offense’s inability to score led to another loss. A now expected, excellent start from Jeff Karstens went to the wayside this afternoon as the Pirates lost in 11 innings to Cleveland 5-2.

The Pirates opened up the scoring in the 1st inning with 2 runs on an RBI single by Garrett Jones and an RBI fielder’s choice by Matt Diaz.

Karstens would give up 2 runs (1 earned) over 7 innings of work to lower his season ERA to 2.54. Jose Veras would pitch a 1-2-3 8th inning and Chris Resop and Tony Watson would combine to pitch a scoreless 9th inning. Watson would also pitch a scoreless 10th before giving way to Tim Wood in the 11th. Wood allowed a 3-run homer to Cord Phelps and that was the ball game.

The Pirates had their chances in this game. They left a total of 14 men on base and out-hit the Tribe 11-9. Neil Walker, Brandon Wood, and Ronny Cedeno would each collect 2 hits. Andrew McCutchen, who was given the day off in the field, was the Pirates’ only starter to not collect a hit in his designated hitter role.

The Bucs will look to leave their woeful offense in Cleveland as they come home for a series against the last place Orioles and then a weekend series against the Red Sox.
