Indians beat Angels 9-5

A strong offensive performance on a warm and rainy night in Cleveland carried the Tribe to a comeback win. on July 3 against the Angels.

Despite the nine runs, the story was the pitching. Zach McAlister had four shutout innings, blew up in the fifth (with the help of shoddy defense) and recovered.

The focus really should be on the continuing strong performance of the bullpen. Vinnie Pestano continues his great, unheralded setup work.  When they get them, the Tribe can hold a lead.

A decent attendance number of 29,000.  Not good for a July night, but there wasn't going to be a walk-up crowd with the questionable weather.  Not in Cleveland.

By the way, does everyone have the trouble that I do getting the Indians website to load.  It takes forever.  Yuck.
