  • Masterson looked like an ace in Monday’s 1-0 complete game shutout.

  • McAllister pitching better.

  • Lack of save opportunities for Perez.

  • Lots of good hitting, coming from all spots of the lineup.

MLB leaders:

  • Reynolds leading with 11 HRs already 5th in RBI.

  • Santana a league leader in BA

  • Bourn back from the DL.

 

2Q: More Tribe

  • New players providing big contributions (Reynolds, Swisher)

  • Yan Gomes calls a good game (pitchers ERA < 3 when he catches) and throws out runners.
