Home Loss Shrinks Packers Series Lead to 3-2
Leave it to the veteran.

The Cleveland Bobcats got a great start from 34-year-old right-hander Jose Juarez, as Cleveland took the 8-3 win at Roman Arena over the series-leading Cincinnati Packers. Juarez threw 9.0 innings of 6-hit ball and helped Cleveland close their deficit to 3 games to 2 in the best-of-7 series.

Joe Rafferty, the four-time All-Star , had a direct impact on the outcome. Rafferty contributed a 3-run home run in the top of the third inning to put Cleveland up, 5-1.

"We're happy," Rafferty told reporters after the win. "When you're in the playoffs, you've got to treat every game like it could be your last."

Game 6 is scheduled for Tuesday at Lakefront Stadium in Cleveland.
