Thursday’s Opening Day game epitomized many things.

Toronto utility player Omar Vizquel, a former Cleveland Indians star, played in left field and at first base, two positions he rarely ever plays.

But after all, if Indians closer Chris Perez had closed out a 4-1 lead 2 1/2 hours earlier, there would never have been a 5-hour, 14-minute, 16-inning affair nor would Vizquel have played those two positions.

The Indians lost 7-4 to the Blue Jays which is now the longest game in Opening Day history in Major League Baseball.

With about 5,000 fans left in stands at Progressive Field, Toronto won the game in the 16th on a three-run homer by J.P. Arencibia.

The Tribe wasted a great pitching performance by improving right-hander, Justin Masterson, who was cruising along with a 4-1 lead in eight innings and 10 strikeouts.

Indians right-hander Justin Masterson said that he is very much honored to be chosen “to set the tone for the season” as the opening day starter on April 5 against Toronto.

Most MLB experts figured that Cleveland’s supposed staff ace Ubaldo Jimenez would get the nod due to his experience.

Manager Manny Acta chose Masterson because he was Cleveland’s most consistent starter in 2011, going 12-10 with a 3.21 ERA in 33 starts. He won his first five starts of the season and set a career-high in wins and led Cleveland in ERA, strikeouts, starts and innings pitched.

Overall in his career, Masterson is 28-28 with an ERA of 3.92 and 485 strikeouts.

Masterson is a graduate of Beavercreek High School in Beavercreek, Ohio which is located between Fairborn and Xenia in Greene County. With Beavercreek, he was a pitcher, catcher and first baseman.

The Cleveland Indians, who’ve had trouble beating the Cincinnati Reds the past three seasons, are dominating in 2011 with a 4-0 record and have officially won won the Ohio Cup.

Friday night in Cincinnati, the Tribe pounded out 12 hits, clubbed out three homers during an 8-2 win at Great American Ball Park.

Four Indians had three hits each- Asdrubal Cabrera, Carlos Santana and Grady Sizemore.

The offensive outburst by Cleveland gave Justin Masterson, who grew up in Beavercreek, Ohio in the Dayton area, his first win on the mound since April 26, although it was the team’s inept offense which overshadowed several of his quality starts during that period.

During those 11 starts, he had an ERA of 3.34, pitched into the seventh inning eight times and had seven quality starts.

Before a sellout crowd of 40,440, Masterson did it again, allowing one run on four hits and struck out five in eight innings and is 6-6 on the season.

Losing pitcher was Bronson Arroyo who couldn’t keep the baseball in the park as he allowed three homers, 24 for the year which leads the National League. He gave up eight runs in 4.2 innings.
