    July 25, 2011 No comments

    Indianapolis starter Rudy Owens struck out four over seven solid innings of two-hit ball, while relievers Daniel Moskos and Tim Wood each tossed a scoreless inning of relief to lead the Indians to a 3-0 shutout victory over the Rochester Red Wings on Sunday afternoon at Victory Field.

    Owens improved to 8-6 on the year in one best starts after giving up only two hits in his seven scoreless frames. After allowing the first three batters to reach base without a hit, Owens retired the next 14 hitters he would face before Rochester collected their first hit of the contest on an infield single in the sixth.

    Moskos and Wood followed Owens by combining to shut down the Rochester offense for the rest of game, giving up just one hit in the final two innings to secure the shutout. Moskos earned his second hold of the season; while Wood notched his team-leading 18th save of the year.

    Indianapolis got all the offense they would need with a single tally in the fourth Inning. 3B Pedro Alvarez started the scoring rally with a triple to left center, before trotting home on a clutch two-out single from C Jason Jaramillo that gave the Tribe a 1-0 advantage.

    Jaramillo then provided an insurance run in the seventh, when he led off the inning with a double and quickly came around to score on a RBI triple to deep center field by CF Gorkys Hernandez.

    A final insurance tally would come across in the eighth inning courtesy of three straight base hits. All-Star 1B Matt Hague began the stretch with a single and then advanced to second on Alvarez’s second base hit of the game, before DH Andy Marte sent Hague home with an RBI single to left.

    Red Wings starter Scott Diamond suffered the loss to fall to 4-9 despite giving up just two earned runs on seven hits in 6.1 innings. Rochester right-handers Jeff Manship and Cole DeVries pitched the final 1.2 frames, combining to give up an earned run on three hits.

    Indianapolis now squares off against Rochester on Monday night for the final meeting of the year, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m. The Indians are expected to send RHP Brad Lincoln to the mound, while RHP Kevin Slowey is scheduled to get the nod for the Red Wings.
