Michael Bourn leading the league in triples
Bourn currently leads the American League with 10 triples. Mike Trout and Chicago’s Adam Eaton each have 9, so unless one of them has a big weekend, Bourn will become the first Indian since Kenny Lofton in 1995 to lead the American League.
Michael Bourn will only watch Chris Sale pitch Friday.
(9/5/14) Indians center fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn has been given Friday night off against White Sox stud left-hander Chris Sale.
Bourn is batting .214 against lefties this year and is hitless in five at-bats lifetime against Sale.
