Starting pitchers Danny Salazar and Alex Cobb have had their way with hitters. Salazar struck out three of the six consecutive batters he set down to start the game. He hit triple-digits on the Progressive Field gun on a couple of occasions, including a 100-MPH fastball to punch out James Loney in the first.
Cobb was dominant in his own right, needing only eight pitches to get out of the first inning. He surrendered a two-out double to Ryan Raburn in the second, but recovered to retire Asdrubal Cabrera for the third out.
The winner of this game will advance to the AL Division Series to face the Boston Red Sox.
