The Cleveland Indians lost to the New York Yankees in game-4 of the ALDS, by a score of 7-3. It was the result of some sloppy baseball, by a Cleveland Indians team that normally doesn't play sloppy baseball.

The Indians had 4-errors in the game. The Tribe gave up 5 UN-earned runs to the Yankees. Bauer tried to pitch on 3-days rest and only lasted a total of 1-2/3's before Tito (Terry Francona) had to resort to his bull-pen.

Part of Bauer's early exit can be attributed to a couple of errors allowing the Yankees to have extra outs. We all know you can't give a team in the play-offs any extra outs. Especially a team like the Yankees who have some great hitters.

The ALDS will be decided on Wednesday night in Cleveland at Progressive Field, in front of the Indians home crowd.  It will be the Tribes ace Corey Kluber facing off against the Yankees CC Sabathia.

Kluber didn't exactly shine in his last start against the Yankees, he knows what this game means, and he has that poor start out of his system. After all, the guy is only human.

The Indians need to get their bats working in this one folks.. The Tribe only had 4-hits in game-4, and that's not going to do it against this Yankees team, unless Kluber can dominate the way we all know he can.

The Indians are the heavily favored coming into game-5. Lets see what they can do Wednesday night in front of the home crowd........
