Cleveland had to come back from a two-run deficit when minor league sensation, and former first round pick Alex White gave up two 4th inning home runs to Miguel Cabrera and Ray Rayburn. Cleveland would come back quickly though. Carlos Santana belted a line drive home run in the bottom of the fourth, and Brantley would tie it with a home run of his own in the sixth.
White was solid in his first appearance, going six innings, giving up six hits, two runs and four walks (with two intentional), while striking out four. As good as he was, the bullpen was better. Joe Smith, Vinny Pestano, Chris Perez, Rafael Perez and Tony Sipp combined to give up only five hits with one walk and eight strike outs.
The Indians finished the month at 18-8, with the best record in baseball. Boy, it sure is hard to say goodbye to April.
