QUICK BASEBALL

Didn’t get around to wrapping up the 1-5 Wednesday.

Indians 8, Twins 1
Andy Marte homered in the fourth inning to put the Indians ahead 3-0 and that was all they would need. As a team, the Indians racked up 11 hits and 20 total bases, which was a little surprising. Mitch Talbot went 6 scoreless innings walking 3 and allowing 2 hits. He now has a 2.25 ERA on the season but a 6/8 K/BB in over 20 innings pitched.

Season-to-date: 16-20 +1.87
Runs: 144-168, .421

Tonight: Two early season stalwarts are taking on pretty good teams this weekend, so that promises to be tons of fun. The Orioles are in Boston and the Royals are hosting Minnesota for the weekend. Cleveland in Oakland and the Dodgers visiting the Nationals could be good options, too.

For the Nationals, Luis Atilano is making his major league debut, which is always fun.

On the surface, Lester has been pretty terrible this year for the Red So with an 0-2 record and an ERA over 8. However, a low strand rate and high BABIP should settle down a little bit.
