The Cleveland Indians started out their day looking to take their third game from the Boston Red Sox and take this series win. The Red Sox would have no part of that, the Tribe started Corey Kluber, the Red Sox took total advantage of the young pitcher. Corey Kluber would only pitch for with 3 1/3 innings, the young right hander gave up seven hits in six earned runs to Boston. Indians manager Manny Acta would make the call to the bullpen bringing in Josh Tomlin, Boston really seemed to appreciate that move, the Red Sox continued to clobber the Indians pitching today. Tomlin would only last for 1 1/3 innings.
Tomlin would give up seven hits, five earned runs, walked two and struck out one before his they would come to an end. Manny Acta would make another call to his bullpen bringing in Frank Herman. He was able to give manager Manny Acta two and a third innings, giving up three hits one run he walked two before his they came to an end. The only thing and that performed worse today than the Indians pitching staff was their offense.
The Indians offense was only able to get five hits, scoring one run today. Not exactly the kind of baseball you would expect the Cleveland Indians to play after winning 2 games against the Red Sox. There are still plenty of question marks surrounding that 2012 Cleveland Indians team, the Indians still can’t find that consistency needed to produce wins. One day the Indians offense seems to show up, the next day they seem to be absent, leaving the fans to question the moves the front office failed to make when the trade deadline approached.
With today’s loss the Indians now fall 53-62 on the season and 38-29 at home. The Cleveland Indians are 10 games back in the A.L. central with 47 games remaining in the regular season. It’s highly unlikely at this time the Cleveland Indians will see post season play again this year. Looks like it’s going to be another year that the Cleveland fans got their hopes up in the first half of only to see the Tribe of fall from Glory after the All-Star break.
All well and we are Cleveland fans, you would think we should be used to this by now. Watching the Indians lose today 14-1 is a solid reminder the Cleveland Indians just came off in 11 game losing streak, what did we really expect.
