Anibal Sanchez gave up four runs on six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over six innings against the Indians on Friday.
Sanchez was pitching an absolute gem here allowing just three hits over six shutout innings, but when he came out for the seventh, it was like a whole different Indians team. or maybe just a different Sanchez. He gave up two hits and a walk to the first three batters he faced and after a two-run single to the fourth, Brad Ausmus pulled him. Unfortunately, the relief corps allowed the two runners charged to Sanchez to score and a suddenly masterful night turned into a pitching line of mediocrity. He'll look to rebound from this one inning of disaster when he faces the Diamondbacks next week.ANALYST: Howard Bender
