Return of the Chiz

Today you get a song with your blog post because a background song is going to make this short post more exciting, and an embedded video is going to make it display longer. Play.

Lonnie Chisenhall is back! He's back to rock the show, apparently. There were only 3 hits by Indians in the game today and one was a homer by The Chiz Kid! He got 1/3 of the hits, 1/3 of the walks, scored 1/2 of the runs and hit 1/2 of the RBI tonight. Ha!

If you don't remember, he got beaned in the hand, or rather, in the bone just above his hand. That was June 29 - just 73 days ago - and he has had surgery, had a plate and some screws placed, healed up and gotten back into playing order in that time. It was his 4th homer of the year, in the 24 games he's played. He's here vying for the 3rd base spot and I gotta say the kid has heart!

Justin Masterson pitched today. He gave up 6 earned runs but at least he went 6 2/3 innings. Still...blah. I said he needed to hold them and I was right, cuz our offense was all "Wut?" He left the game with 5 runs (and only 3 runs going in to the 7th) but he left a dude on base and Scott Maine made his second appearance to let the dude score.

Frank Herrmann came in for the 8th and he gave up a home run. Bad Frank.

Cousin Michael got a hit because, hey man, it's no big deal for him.

Russ Canzler didn't get a hit. That's a bummer - no longer 100% for games in September.

Brent Lillibridge is the other guy with a hit, because no one expects Brent Lillibridge!

The other run was scored by a Choo walk, Brantley's single and a sac fly by Santana.

That was the ballgame today. We're tied for last place now. We go on to play Texas and they go on to play Kansas City. We do meet the Twins one more time so hopefully by then we're ready to crawl up their backs and land in 4th place alone. Yeah.

Tomorrow we're IN Texas so it's another 8:05 start. Ubaldo versus LHP (3.37). Yikes.

I'll see you there anyway.
