Westbrook walks 5 in Indians' 5-4 win over Rockies

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Opening-day starter Jake Westbrook walked five over four-plus innings during the Cleveland Indians' 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday.

Westbrook was charged with two runs and seven hits. He left with a 3-1 lead and the bases loaded. Saul Rivera got out of the jam, allowing one run.

Westbrook is eagerly awaiting his opening-day assignment — which will be his first game for Cleveland since May 28, 2008. The right-hander spent all of 2009 recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Jeff Francis started for Colorado, allowing four hits and four runs over 4 1-3 innings. The left-hander missed all of 2009 rehabbing from shoulder surgery.
