For a moment it look like the Indians were going to snap out of the losing streak in Texas last night. Especially when Carlos Santana hit a base clearing double in the 3rd inning that scored 3 runs. It was the Indians on top, 3-1.
The lead would be short-lived. The Texas Rangers were able to come right back in the 4th when, Jeff Baker hit a home run off of Tribe starter, Scott Kazmir. Just like that the Indians lead was gone we all know what that means on this road trip.
The game would remained tied into the 7th inning, people back in Cleveland were hoping this would be the night to stop the skid. It wouldn’t happen that way. The Indians couldn’t get any more runs in the game.
In the 7th inning the Rangers were able to score 3 runs when, Nick Hagadone gave up a home run that scored 2 runs and then Cody Allen came in and gave up another run. Just like that the Indians were down by 3 runs and the losing streak would be extended to 8 games in a row.
The Tribe has trouble folks. The wins aren’t coming and the Indians continue to fall in the A.L. Central. This team can’t seem to win, against play-off caliber teams. The Indians are struggling on all fronts.
The bull-pen that was so good for so long isn’t performing up to par. The offense that used to be able to score runs at will, is missing and the overall health of the team seems to be suffering.
Terry Francona has his hands full folks. He is going to have to work for his money these days. Some how he has to figure out a way to get this Indians team turned around and he has to do it soon.
If the Indians can’t find a win, they could drop into 3rd place behind the Royals in the A.L. Central. The Tribe is tied with them at 5-1/2 games back.
