Sabathia Finally Wins Number 15 Tribe Beats Twins 4-3

Cleveland Indians starter C.C. Sabathia has been trying to get his 15th win of the 2007 since August 3. And though he had pitched good enough to win most if not all of his starts between then and Wednesday night the Indians offense never came through for him. Wednesday night Cleveland did all their scoring in the first off Minnesota Twins starter Johann Santanna. But Cleveland's newest folk hero rookie second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two run home run, catcher Victor Martinez hit a solo shot, and recently returned veteran Kenny Lofton had a RBI single. C.C. and the bullpen were able to make that lead hold up and the Tribe won 4-3. Sabathia gave up only two runs solo runs in the fifth and the sixth. Indians closer Joe Borowski got his 39th save of the year tops in the American League. The win gave the Indians a sweep over Minnesota, who fell 8.5 behind Cleveland in the A.L. Central. Cleveland also increased their lead over the Detroit Tigers to 4.5 games as Detroit fell to Kansas City 5-0.
