Cleveland Indians: Tribe comebacks lead to 3-1 series win over White Sox

Last season it was the Chicago White Sox who haunted the Cleveland Indians while the Chi Sox were on their way to a World Series Championship. This season the roles seem to be reversed. Consecutive 4-run innings in the 6th and 7th led the Tribe to a 12-8 win last night as the Indians now have a 6-3 season advantage over their AL Central Division rivals the Chicago White Sox.

Ronnie Belliard powered the Indians with a HR and 4 RBI while Jason Michaels, Grady Sizemore and Ben Broussard each added 2 RBI as well. With the win the Indians are now 27-26 on the year and trail the Detroit Tigers by 8.5 games and the White Sox by 6 games. While those deficits may seem large, the Tribe has momentum on their side having gained 3 games on the White Sox and 2 on the Tigers in the past 3 days.

So have the Indians finally turned the corner? Will we see the team that went into the final week of the 2005 season as a strong playoff contender? Indians broadcaster Matt Underwood think the Indians might have hit “rock-bottom” in their 11-0 Memorial Day loss to the White Sox at home. But with 3 straight wins over the defending World Series Champions and a struggling LA Angels of Anaheim coming to town for the weekend, it is time to see the Tribe ride this momentum to a long hot streak and gain even more ground on the White Sox and Tigers.
