Indians-Yankees: New Yankee Stadium Meets Cleveland's Bats

Melissa ShannonContributor IApril 18, 2009

Have the Indians woken up?  After a scoring frenzy in today's game, I would like to assume so. 

Hit after hit, the Indians ran around the bases and racked up the runs.  The last time the Indians had scored 20 runs or more in a game was back in August of 2004—against who?

You got it, the Yankees

After a disappointing start by Wang (0-2), Yankees pitching continued to give up runs, which proved to be beneficial to the Cleveland Indians. 

Cabrera finally started hitting, actually connecting for a Grand Slam.  Sizemore (who, since 2004, has the most runs and hits in baseball when leading off) continued to stay hot by also hitting a home run (4). 

Is this a fluke?  Cleveland fans, lets hope not. 

With the Cavaliers staying hot and on their way to a championship ring, let's hope the Indians can piggy back off them and make it to the playoffs and maybe, just maybe a World Series. 

All I can say is welcome home, Cleveland, welcome home.
