Leadoff with Lee 4.14.14

-Sunday's Indians game should be labeled "The Long Lost Game". Including rain delays, the game lasted for 5 hours and 18 minutes. Despite a great pitching performance by Corey Kluber, the Tribe lost a tough one versus the Chicago White Sox with a final score of 4-3.

The Indians struck first after Michael Brantley's solo homerun in the top of the 4th. After a 45 minute rain delay, the Sox scored a run of their own after a botched throw to first by Asdrubal Cabrera, which brought in Connor Gillespie from 3rd base. After being knotted up 1-1 through 8, Corey Kluber gave up a solo shot to Marcus Semien to put the Sox ahead 2-1. Heading into the 9th inning, Michael Brantley scored after a single from Yan Gomes to tie the game 2-2. Gomes came in to score from 3rd base after a wild pitch from White Sox closer Matt Lindstrom. But in the bottom of the 9th, Alexei Ramirez crushed a 2-run homer off of Indians closer John Axford to give the White Sox a 4-3 victory.

-The Cavs had the night off as they prepare for their season finale at home against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. The Cavs final home game is also fan appreciation night, with tickets still available.
