CLEVELAND - Shin-Soo Choo got the job done again - this time without any avian assistance.
A day after his winning hit glanced off a gull in the outfield, Choo drove in three runs for the Indians to help rookie David Huff get his second big league win in Cleveland's 7-3 victory Friday night over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Huff (2-2), making his sixth major league start, gave up a leadoff homer to Albert Pujols in the fourth and left with one out in the eighth after allowing three runs.
The flocks of gulls that have been swarming Progressive Field the last two homestands were largely absent last night. A few flew around the ballpark's upper deck, but none landed on the field. The Indians shot off fireworks every half inning - saving some for a scheduled postgame show.41.50436 -81.69046
