The Indians lost to Tampa Bay for a second straight game, falling 7-4 on Wednesday afternoon but while the team result was negative, there was an individual positive. Outfielder Bradley Zimmer, called up from the Clippers earlier this week, had a memorable day. After going hitless on Tuesday night, the 24-year old Zimmer broke through with his first big league hit when he delivered a run scoring double in the fourth inning. He wasn't done because in the ninth, Zimmer launched one 397-feet for his first major league home run. A special day for a kid who may not be back in Columbus. He's highly regarded in the Indians organization and is off to a good start. You can check out the former Clippers first and second big league hits below.
