Suzuki on base with a strange demonstration of conservation of momentum:

 

Ball off his elbow, into the catcher's mask.Catcher's mask flies off, and ball drops to the ground.

 

And then Suzuki gets thrown out at second, presumably on a take and run call?

 

Oh well.

Huh. ESPN only let Cleveland have two outs in that last inning. 

 

was the third out on the bases somewhere?

Yup.

 

Quick throw from Arcia in Right to Santana at 2nd base was called safe originally, but overturned after a challenge.

I'll take the 2 rbis, and give up the runner in scoring position (i assume suzuki woulda been out at 1st if Plouffe had stayed put)

 

Just as i took the Shafer's diving catch for the 2nd out last inning, and didn't mind as much the misplay on the 3rd out, which turned out to be gotten in dramatic fashion on Arcia's throw.

 

But yeah.Someday maybe we'll get everything right...

Nice finish for Hughes, I'm guessing he's done for the day.

no t.v. is a bummer - I would have loved to see Vargas getting an infield single!

I'm watching the Indians broadcast (one of the few positive things about being a Twins fan in the Chicago region).  The infield hit wasn't all that close.  Aviles was deep in the hole and tried to throw from his knees.  He got nothing on the throw and the first baseman had to take a couple steps off the bag to catch it.  Vargas would have beaten it even if it had been accurate.  He definitely made it down the line faster than I thought he could.

 

My self-imposed ban for jinxing Hughes is over.  So far.

He seems a bit faster than a man his size should be...

Thanks to all for showing up this afternoon. It really is a pleasure to follow the comments and occasionally participate in the hilarity. My wife doesn't understand why I do this. I tell her it's a little like we're all zombies lurching back to TD no matter what. Maybe a head shot would cure that.

I thought the same thing.  The SS had to range pretty far to his right though.  Too bad this one wasn't broadcast back in Minny because it's actually been entertaining. Baserunning was frustrating, but I really like Vargas.

Nice win today - any time you get a strong seven innings from your starter, then a quick 8th and 9th from your bullpen is a good day.
