I just wanted to provide a few thoughts of what I saw during the Indians vs Dodgers game today.
- The pitching matchup had me intrigued from the start and it did not disappoint. Jeanmar Gomez continued to prove his case for the fifth starter spot by throwing 4 solid innings, with only one hit, one walk and three strikeouts. Clayton Kershaw did not have a bad outing. 5 and a third innings, three hits, one run (earned), two walks and five strikeouts.
- Kershaw had a lot of life of his curveball, striking out Santana and Duncan with it.
- Jose Lopez continued his great spring with a RBI single in the first, giving him 6 RBI’s (second to Duncan-10)
- Michael Brantley-left with sore right hamstring, had Indians’ fans holding their breath. They need Brantley to be in outfield with no Sizemore.
- Sloppy play in the infield today- Lopez, Donald and Hu all made errors
- Carlos Santana with a huge homerun in the 6th. Could have another big season for the Tribe.
- Dan Wheeler with a great showing today after the struggles thus far. Could be great in the Bullpen Mafia.
- Chris Seddon had a tough inning to close the game. Definitely a wild card this spring.
I will provide my opinion on the Spring position battles and other minor things tomorrow right here. Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment.
