Cleveland’s Grady Sizemore reached base four times and scored three runs including the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the fifth inning as the Indians take two out of three from Kansas City winning Wednesday afternoon 4-2.
Luke Hochevar has not won since July 25th. He gave up four runs, three earned while going 6.1 innings. The Indians not only scored on the wild pitch, but went up 1-0 in the first when Billy Butler muffed Sizemore’s ground ball, and he would later score.
The Royals were able to tie the game up in the first and third each time after Cleveland took a one run lead, but Indians starter David Huff stiffled the Royals’ bats after that throwing three consecutive scoreless innings after that.
