The Indians are coming back to Cleveland tied up with the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS. Trot Nixon made the difference in game two. What a game it was all 5 hours, 14 minutes of it.
Now the Indians have the crowd on their side for games three through five. On Monday, Red Sox send Daisuke Matsuzaka to the mound. Jake Westbrook pitches for the Indians. Hopefully, Westbrook can best the Indians’ top two starters when he starts game three.
It’s ironic that former Red Sox player Trot Nixon came back to haunt his former team in extra innings. So far during the ALCS, former Indians player Manny Ramirez has been a thorn in the side of his former fans. He hit his 23rd postseason homer last night and is on fire against the Tribe.
Now hopefully, the Browns can do the same thing, pull off a win against the Dolphins today.
