Box Score: Indians 4, Twins 7

Josh Tomlin had a rough start early, and although the Tribe caught up to tie it at 4-4, the team lost energy from there. The Twins held on to win game two of this series at Progressive Field, thanks to a big day at the plate from Joe Mauer and a stellar catch from Ben Revere in the ninth inning.

The Indians will definitely need tomorrow’s game in order to save face in the AL Central. You can’t lose an entire series to one of the worst teams in the majors and expect to keep competing the playoff race, especially with the upcoming difficult schedule set to begin soon.

    Face a left handed pitcher and this team is done for what makes it so bad is they just stand there and take third strikes all day.  No pressure on LaPorta who wasn’t doing well after being red hot for awhile.  Forget about it this team has to many holes.

  • FearTheRoo

    Great way to finish out the season Tribe. Losing series to both the Royals and Twins…next up on our list of terrible teams to lose to? Pirates! too bad we don’t play the cubbies! we could get swept by them.
