Notes, Quotes · Bullpen nearly perfect during winning streak · Roster Report

--SS Asdrubal Cabrera hit home runs in two of the three games of the Indians' three-game weekend sweep of Seattle. Cabrera has hit three home runs in 37 at-bats. Prior to this year, Cabrera had hit 18 homers in 1,415 career at-bats in the major leagues.

--3B Jack Hannahan, who is the Indians' new third baseman, got the job primarily because of his defense. Hannahan has been very good defensively, but he continues to make an impact with the bat. Hannahan belted his second homer of the season Sunday. He is hitting .286 overall, with 6 RBI.

--RHP Josh Tomlin pitched 6 2/3 innings to get the win Sunday vs. Seattle. Tomlin has now pitched five or more innings in each of his 14 career starts in the major leagues. He is the only pitcher in Indians history to have done that.

--INF Jason Donald was 1-for-3 at Class AA Akron, in his first game on an injury-rehab assignment. Donald has been on the disabled list since the start of the season with a broken bone in his left hand, suffered when he was hit by a pitch in spring training.

--OF Grady Sizemore, on a rehab assignment with Class AA Akron Saturday, played nine innings for the first time in the outfield and went 2-for-4, with a double and a walk. Sizemore, who is coming back from microfracture knee surgery last June, could be activated off the DL sometime before the end of April.

4 -- Times Manny Acta has called for a suicide-squeeze bunt in his one-plus years as manager of the Indians. The Indians have successfully executed the squeeze bunt all four of those times.

"It was Dracula-type weather." -- Manny Acta, on the conditions at Progressive Field during the Indians' 1-0 win over Boston on April 7. The game-time temperature was 38 degrees, and it was foggy, damp and cold all day.
