Box Score: Orioles 3, Indians 1

The Indians dropped their third straight game on Saturday night in front of the second largest crowd (36,247) this season at Progressive Field. Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a solo homer but the Tribe bats would go silent after that. Zach McAllister pitched well for the Indians, getting into the eighth inning but the offense was nowhere to be found.

  • Well, it was fun to pretend for a little while this year…

  • TribeTimeNow

    At least lose like 9-6 and entertain the fans. Instead we lose boring or get blown out entirely. This current brand of baseball is not going to put butts in the seats.

  • FearTheRoo

    Reason no one has been going to the games…..this

    Is it football season yet? Oh yeah the Browns are terrible too, nevermind.

  • Brook Jacoby

    These last two weeks have shown me that the Indians need to be sellers, not buyers heading into the trade deadline. The window has closed. They don’t have enough minor league talent to garner a big bat or starting pitcher. Even if they did, I still think there are too many holes in the lineup to run down the Tigers.

    At this point, I hope the move Choo, Perez, Hafner if anyone will take him, and Ubaldo. Blow it up and start yet again. What they built just isn’t good enough to win. The front office blew it.

  • Matt underwood

    Nice to see the tribe continue free falling while the front office stands around with their dick in their hand.

  • I was at this game. What a joke.

    And MGBode, how about Hafner’s 0-4 display of stupidity? If he first-pitch swings at one more low pitch with two on and one out…I’m going to scream.

    I heard three different people curse him out, too, while he was making his way back to the dugout after one of his “at bats.” This man has been a failure for two years.

    Let’s go Browns.

    Free fall? On June 29th we were 3.5 back. Today, we’re 3.5 back.

    Failure? Little hyperbolic I think.
