Cleveland Indians

Wild pitches and a little support from Holmgren

By sstorm Published: April 12, 2010

The fifth inning was a tough one for the Indians veteran catcher Mike Redmond, who took a wild pitch by starter Fausto Carmona somewhere near the midsection.

Play stopped briefly as Redmond attempted to shake off the pain. Not long afterwards, Redmond absorbed another blow when he was hit by a foul ball.

Fans can only hope Redmond doesn't land on the disabled list tomorrow, or the Carlos Santana talk will begin in earnest.

The Rangers scored two runs in the inning to take a 2-1 lead, with Elvis Andrus scoring the go-ahead run on another Carmona wild pitch.

While the Rangers were preparing to come to bat in the bottom of the fifth inning, a cameraman found new Browns President Mike Holmgren sitting in a front row seat next to Gil Haskell, Browns senior advisor to the president, and flashed the pair on the score board.

Fans instantly responded with a loud cheer and plenty of dog barking in their support of Holmgren's pursuit to turn the Browns around.

Don't know if Holmgren really likes baseball or not, but it sure is nice to see a sports figure of his stature supporting Cleveland's other pro franchises - and not wearing a Yankees hat while doing it.
