Boxscore

When Travis Hafner hit in the top of the eighth inning with the Indians down a run, it seemed a logical move. After all, you're down two runs on the road, and you have little to lose. Kelly Shoppach, after all, would help stop the running game if the contest was tied in the late innings, right?

Unfortunately, Shoppach couldn't make a catch that every professional catcher is expected to make, and Jhonny Peralta couldn't make a throw every professional shortstop is expected to make. It all added up to a very frustrating loss. Not that a loss means anything at this point, but still a loss that even marginal fielding would have prevented.

I'm going to be out of town until Monday (Jay will be doing the game threads), so I'll see you next week.
