Down but never out, that pretty much sums up the 2013 season for the Cleveland Indians who fell behind early against the Royals last night. The Cleveland Indians are in survival mode these days. They are holding on to the wild card race with everything they got.
The team fell behind early in the game and the Indians never gave up. They battled back from a 3-0 deficit to pencil in another game under the win column. The Indians wouldn’t find enough offense to bring a run across the plate until the 6th inning.
Then it was Mr. Consistency himself Michael Brantley who would hit a single to drive in Nick Swisher. The Indians got one in the 6th and they got 2 in the 7th, just like that it was a brand new game.
Tied at 3, the Indians took the lead in the 8th off a Asdrubal Cabrera double that drove in stubbs. Then in the 9th inning it was Michael Bourn who drove in an insurance run to make it 5-3 Indians.
The Tribe won their 82nd game to clinch a wining season and they held onto being a half game behind in the wild card race. The team seems to be excited and they need to continue to find a way to win.
They finish the series against the Royals tonight and another win would be huge in their quest to find post season play.
