The Cleveland Indians split their series against the Baltimore Orioles. Lonnie Chisenhall showed some power in last nights game with a home run in the 2nd inning and a double in the 4th. He showed some of the great hitting he was doing down in Columbus and the Indians had a tough time with their starting pitching as Corey Kluber gave up 11 hits in the 4-2/3′s he would work.
The Tribe saw 7 runs go onto the scoreboard all charged to Kluber, who struggled to say the least. Cleveland couldn’t get their offense going in this one. They were only able to get 3 runs and when your starting pitching is getting hammered, 3 runs isn’t going to get it done.
The only other run the Tribe was able to put on the board came in the 5th with a Mike Aviles home run blast to left field. Cleveland did well to split this 4 game series with the Orioles, many thought the Indians would have lost this series but a split keeps them only 3 games back.
The Indians are 2 games above .500 and they are battling to stay above the .500 mark. Another bright spot for Cleveland was the fact the bull-pen didn’t give up any runs in the game. Maybe they have finally gotten some things figured out. The pen has struggled this season and it is great to see them put in this kind of work without getting hammered.
The Tribe now moves onto the White Sox…
