Inside Pitch

The Indians have been waiting for designated hitter Travis Hafner to show something close to the kind of power he displayed a few years ago when he was one of the most feared sluggers in the American League. Friday, Hafner did exactly that.


In the first inning of the Indiansí 13-7 loss to Toronto, Hafner hit a double off the top of the right-field fence. In Hafnerís second at-bat, in the third inning, he hit a home run over the right-field fence.


Hafner also homered in his last at-bat Thursday, in Clevelandís loss to Texas. So in those three at-bats Hafner came close to hitting home runs in three consecutive at bats.



Hafner hit only five home runs in his injury-hampered 2008 season. Weakness in his right shoulder resulted in offseason surgery to clean out the shoulder joint.


Hafner didnít show much power at all in spring training, and he struggled in the Indiansí first two games of the regular season. However, Hafnerís two home runs in the last two games give Indians officials hope he is making progress in returning to pre-injury form.
