Kenny Lofton is once again is a member of the Tribe

OK, despite the fact that at 40 years old, he isn't quite the player he was back in the days that this picture was taken, Kenny Lofton is still a decent player. He is batting .303 this year with 96 hits, 23 RBI, 21 stolen bases and 7 homers. Tonight he made his first start as an Indian since 2001, and he went 3-5 with 3 singles, an RBI and a very crucial bunt single in the 3rd that loaded the bases and opened the door to a big inning. Lofton also brought a great atmosphere to the Jake, and received a 30 second ovation when he came to the plate. Jhonny Peralta had a great night as well, hitting 2 homers.....a 3 run bomb and a 2 run bomb to give him 5 RBI on the night. The Indians had 16 hits and beat the Twins 10-4, and are now 60-43 on the year, 1 game behind Detroit in the division.
