Just one hit is all we ask

Cleveland beat Chicago today at home, 2-1, despite getting just one hit against Jose Contreras and three White Sox relievers. Grady Sizemore led off the first with a double and came around to score on a Trot Nixon ground out. Sizemore drove in a second run with a bases-loaded walk in the fourth. The White Sox made three errors and walked six Cleveland batters.

C.C. Sabathia and Joe Borowski combined to allow just six hits.

The Indians have experience with winning low-hit games. They won a game despite getting no hits against Matt Young of the Red Sox on April 12, 1992 in the first game of a doubleheader. Cleveland got seven walks in that game and they also stole six bases against Young, who had a mental block about making pickoff throws. Even Cleveland catcher Junior Ortiz had a stolen base, and he was 8 for 26 in steals for his career. In the nightcap, the Indians got two hits off of Roger Clemens, but lost that one.
