Indians win series, Cavs blow out Nets

I'd say the Indians made a positive out of their "home" series in Milwaukee. They won the first game 7-6, then lost the second game 4-1, but came back to win the rubber match today, 4-2. Travis Hafner was the hero of the game. In the bottom of the 8th with the Tribe trailing 2-1 and two men on, Pronk drilled his 1st home run of the season to give the Tribe a 4-2 lead. Then Joe Borowski came in to the game and earned his third save of the season, clinching the 4-2 victory. Two other great plays of the game for the Tribe were: in the 6th inning Grady Sizemore hit his 4th home run of the year and pitcher Jeremy Sowers' barehanded grab and tag of first base that happened after a ground ball bounced off of first base. The Indians are now 4-2 and will play the White Sox tomorrow night in (hopefully) their first full and official game at Jacobs Field this season.
Now to the events that took place tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. The Cleveland Cavaliers pretty much blew out the New Jersey Nets. The score was 92-76, it was cose during the first half, but a 36-19 Cavs advantage in the 3rd quarter ended that. LeBron had 35 points, Houghes scored 19 and Pavlovic added 13. I didn't watch most of this game, but it was never even close in any of the parts I watched. Cleveland is now 47-32 and a lock to have no lower than the 5th seed in the playoffs.
