Made my first trip to The Jake this season and was rudely greeted by David Price on his A-game. In eight innings of work Price allowed just two runs while striking out seven and didn’t allow a single walk.
He’s just the eighth pitcher to come into Jacobs Field and toss eight innings and strike out at least seven without issuing a free pass.
It’s a pretty eclectic list, but features a few impressive names such as Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez. The only game on the list which they Indians won was a brilliant 1-0 showdown between Fausto Carmona and Josh Beckett in 2007 (click on the date for the box score).
