Jason Michaels doubled in two runs in the Tribe's four-run fourth inning. (Nick Wass/AP)
C.C. Sabathia ran into trouble in the third inning, and Ramon Hernandez made him pay with a three-run double. But the Tribe picked up their ace, scoring four runs in the fourth and three in the fifth, plus Grady Sizemore made a stunning two-out grab with the bases loaded in the sixth. Trot Nixon had five hits and drove in four.
