GOODYEAR, ARIZ. -- Jeremy Sowers and Aaron Laffey each pitched for Triple-A Columbus in a minor-league game Sunday against players from the Los Angeles Dodgers system. Dodgers manager Joe Torre watched the game from behind home plate. He got a look at some players on the bubble for his roster as well as seeing some of Cleveland's prospects along with lefties Sowers and Laffey.

It's taken the Indians until nearly the last chapter to get the story of their season back to its original outline. Travis Hafner played for the first time since May and Jeremy Sowers pitched the way the Indians anticipated he would in a 6-1 win over the Orioles in Baltimore on Tuesday night. Cleveland's "one through nine" offense came back from wherever it had gone for summer vacation, too.

It was just like old times for not only Jeremy Sowers and Jensen Lewis but the Indians, too. Lewis saved a win for Sowers, as he used to at Vanderbilt University. The right-hander's good work to close out a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday brought back memories of when Cleveland had a bullpen that could finish the job. It was far from a perfect ninth inning, but it got the job done.

Jeremy Sowers pitched perfect ball for five innings. It wasn't enough as the Minnesota Twins scored twice in the ninth inning off reliever Rafael Perez for a 4-2 win Sunday. The Twins took the lead against Sowers with a bloop, bunt and two bouncers. The Tribe failed to mount much offense off rookie Nick Blackburn, but did tie it off reliever Dennys Reyes in the eighth. That wasn't enough, either.

It had been nearly a month since the Indians won a road game. It had been more than a year since Jeremy Sowers won a big-league game anywhere. Shin-Soo Choo helped end both streaks Saturday, driving in three runs with three hits including a homer to help Cleveland to a 9-6 win over his former team, the Seattle Mariners. The Tribe took a 9-1 lead, then held on for its first road win since June 21.

Jhonny Peralta went 5-for-5 with with three doubles, a homer and three RBI out of the cleanup spot for the Indians on Monday night. It wasn't nearly enough as Cleveland began its most crucial trip of the season by getting 14 hits -- but losing, 9-7, in Chicago to drop 10 1/2 games behind the first-place White Sox in the AL Central. Tribe starter Jeremy Sowers was a bad as Peralta was good.
