3 up. 3 down.

You'll want to watch SportsCenter tonight.  But not for A-Rod's 600th, because that didn't happen.  Not on our watch.

It's not that the Indians lost (because that is becoming a nightly occurrence), it's how they lost and how many pitchers and non-pitchers it took to do so.

Andy Marte, the Tribe's occasional 1st/3rd baseman entered the top of the 9th as the Tribe's 6th relief pitcher for the game.  What's even better, he took down the side without giving up a hit or a walk.  In fact, he was the only Indians pitcher tonight not to give up a walk. Even Nick Swisher, another fellow reliever, didn't stand a chance.

Sometimes you need a little comic relief to get through a tough night.
