The Cleveland Indians lost their second game to the Yankees. The game was tied at 6 in the 11th inning, when the Yankees catcher Brian McCann drove a ball into deep right field, and Torreyes scored who was in as a pinch runner for Beltran.
The Indians had plenty of opportunities to win this game folks. They had runners on base, but they were UN-able to bring them home. The Indians are the only American League Central team to lose yesterday, and with the loss the other teams were able to make up some ground on the Tribe.
The Indians are still in first place, and they now have a 6-1/2 game lead over the Tigers, and a 7-game lead over the Royals and the White Sox.
The Tribe will play their final game of the first half at Progressive Field today. Game time is 1:10p.m., and the Indians have a chance to send the Yankees into the break with a losing record for the first time in about 20-years.
With a win the Tribe will enter the All-Star break with a record of 53-35, if the Indians win this game, the Yankees would enter the break with a record of 43-45.
Carlos Carrasco is set to start for Cleveland today. He's been tough this season, and if he can pitch the way he has thus far this season, the Indians should have some fun this afternoon. This team finds ways to win and I'm hoping they find a way to beat those Yankees today. Go Tribe.....
