Donald homers in return

The first thing I notice this morning is Jason Donald has been recalled again by the Cleveland Indians.  To celebrate, Donald homered in the leading off the bottom of the 1st and the Indians went on to a 5-3 win over Boston. He also walked and scored in the Indian's 3-run 5th, and drove in another run with a ground out in the the 8th.  Lou Marson (.246) also  had a hit and a walk and scored a run for the Tribe.

In Detroit, the Yankees beat the Tigers 4-3.  In the Tigers 3-run 5th inning, Quintin Berry (.276) walked and scored the 3rd run for Detroit on Andy Dirks' double down the line.  Although both Raul Ibanez and Joe Girardi, who was ejected arguing, thought it was a foul ball, I could clearly see the chalk fly up, so there is no doubt it was fair.  Video is available on, so you can watch for yourself.
