Mike B. | On 30, Jun 2015
Tribe rookie Cody Anderson carried a perfect game into the seventh inning before settling for his first big-league win in the Indians bounce-back win over Tampa Bay.
Anderson, who made his debut last Sunday against the same Tampa team, had his perfect game broken up by former Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore. But Anderson will has allowed just one run in his first 15.2 big-league innings.
The Indians led, 2-1, after Sizemore’s homer, but Yan Gomes added an insurance run on a solo homer in the eighth before the Indians scored four in the ninth – Michael Brantley and Ryan Raburn scored on wild pitches, Raburn had an RBI single and Brandon Moss had an RBI fielder’s choice. Gomes had three hits.
W: Cody Anderson (1-0)
L: Nathan Karns (4-4)
HR: Grady Sizemore (1, 7th inning off Anderson 0 on, 1 Out); Yan Gomes (3, 8th inning off Yates 0 on, 2 Out)
