Wil Ledezma and Bullpen Shutout Indians

It was the third one run win of the series, and it was the only one we didn’t have to come back from.  Wil Ledezma was given the start in place of a “fatigued” Justin Verlander and with a moment to shine, he took full advantage of it.  He threw 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball and struck out five.  The only run came on Craig Monroe’s RBI single in the fifth and Monroe extended his hitting streak to 13 games today.  He’s now pulled his batting average up to .271.

Next up is another big series with the Twins and the pitching matchups are identical to last weekend.  Tomorrow we’ll see Zach Miner square off against Francisco Liriano.  I wonder if this one is going to make ESPN Monday night baseball.  The White Sox lost, so the Twins are now just a half game back of the White Sox and 9 1/2 games back of the Tigers.  This is a big week and if the Tigers win four of their next six, they’ll pretty much have put the division to rest.
