The Indians have won 13 of their past 15 games and begin a nine-game homestand with three games against the Orioles. The Indians lead the American League in home runs and have five players hitting over .310. Kenny Lofton (.335) is hitting .424 (25-for-59) with two home runs, two doubles, three triples and seven RBIs in his past 13 games. Eddie Murray (.331) needs 16 hits to reach 3,000. Jim Thome (.311) homered for the 12th time yesterday, and Carlos Baerga (.335) hit his eighth. Albert Belle (.311) is the second-fastest Indian to reach 150 home runs behind Rocky Colavito. Those .300 hitters don't include Manny Ramirez, the AL Player of the Month in May, who is 3-for-28 in June. Good luck holding these guys to seven runs in three games again as the Orioles did May 12-14.
