Tribe's historic 2nd put into perspective
Records aside, Wedge likes how lineup is waking up

NEW YORK -- None of Saturday's runs carried over to Sunday. The Indians didn't have long to bask in the glow of their 22-4 thumping of the Yankees.

On Sunday morning, it was time to turn the page, even though the Tribe had written a new page in the record books a day before.

"These guys stay pretty well-grounded," manager Eric Wedge said. "We talk about staying strong on the tough days and humble on the good days. That's what allows you to be a more consistent ballclub."

Wedge didn't find it easy to turn the page before Sunday's day game. On Saturday night, he was flooded with calls, texts and e-mails from friends. And on Sunday, he was hounded by media requests.

"This morning's been a little crazier than usual," Wedge said.

While everybody wanted to talk about the Tribe's 14-run second inning (the most runs a team has scored in the second inning, according to Elias Sports Bureau), Wedge looked at the totality of the first three games of this four-game set and saw progress with a ballclub that stumbled out of the gate this season.

"You look at the way we've played all three here," he said, "and that can have a positive effect."

It's certainly done wonders for an offense that had struggled in the clutch coming in. The Indians scored 37 runs over the first three games of the series after scoring a total of 43 over their first nine games of the season.

They did a big chunk of their damage in a nine-run seventh on Thursday and the 14-run second on Saturday. In fact, according to Elias, the Tribe is the first visiting team to score nine or more runs in an inning twice in the same series since 1907, when the Tigers did so at Hilltop Park in Washington Heights. No opposing team did it at the old Yankee Stadium.

And to think, the Indians still have nine more opportunities to put together such an outburst on Sunday.
