The Indians defeated the Cardinals 2 - 0 in 2:47 tonight in Cleveland. This game included one of the greatest pitching performances I have ever witnessed in my 32 years of televising Major League Baseball. The third batter of the game was hit by a pitch on the elbow. He later had to leave the game. With two outs in the 7th inning, the Redbirds collected their first and only hit. These were the only baserunners for the Cards in the game. The starting pitcher for Cleveland set a personal record with 18 strikeouts. He pitched through 8 innings. With a strikeout in the ninth inning, the Cards K'd 19 times in this game. I love well-pitched games. This extraordinary pitching performance will go down as one of my favorite games ever. Nicely done!
