Rookie Starter Laffey Pitches Tribe To win Over K.C. 9-4


Cleveland Indians rookie starting pitcher Aaron Laffey saw his record in the Majors grow to 2-1 as the Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals 9-4 Saturday. One day after the Tribe could only muster one run behind a stellar effort by C.C. Sabathia, who lost the contest 2-1, the Indians scored five runs in the first inning off of Royals starter Kyle Davies. It was only the third time since July 27, that Cleveland has scored more than seven runs in a game. Grady Sizemore and Victor Matinez each went deep for Cleveland. Every one in the lineup with the exception of Ryan Garko got a hit, while leftfielder Kenny Lofton went 3-5. With New York's victory over the Tigers, Cleveland's lead in the American League Central is back to 2.5 games.
