The Cleveland Indians couldn’t get the sweep against the New York Mets. The Tribes offense could only put one run on the board in yesterdays game. Daisuke Matsuzaka (Dice K) did a good job of holding the Indians to one run in the 5-2/3′s innings he pitched.

The Indians started Danny Salazar and he did a great job of holding the Mets to only one run in the 4 innings he pitched. I know what you are thinking, if both starting pitchers did such a great job holding the opposition to only one run then how did the Indians lose the game.

The Tribes Bull-Pen gave up a 9th inning run to the Mets. Yes it was the Indians closer who came into the game and gave up the run to take the loss. He isn’t having his best season. The Indians gave up the late inning run and they couldn’t get another run to push the game into extra innings.

The Indians fell back to two games back in the wild card and they did take advantage of a Detroit loss and are now once again fighting to get ahead in the wild card game. The Indians only run came off a batter being hit by a pitch.

Asdrubal Cabrera was hit by a pitch in the 6th inning and it forced in a run. That is the only offense the team had when it came for scoring runs.

    Hi, LG. For the most part, I like this Tribe season compared to the other seasons in the past in that we still have an opportunity to play in October. However, that also depends on what we do the rest of the way and what happens to Texas, Baltimore, and Tampa Bay. There is really no excuse not to have a winning September considering the ease of the rest of the teams we face. I agree with you about the offense. They are inconsistent at best. Hate to say it, but Swisher is way overpaid considering that we acquired him for his “hitting.” They also need to really learn how to beat the playoff caliber teams starting next year if they are to have any hopes of making it anywhere in the playoffs.

      David, if we can find that consistent offense we should be playing in October. We just need to dig a little deepr and we are there…… I hope and pray….
