Bauer Beat Up as Indians Toppled Again by Twins 7-1; Three Takeaways

The last 48 have not been a blast for the Tribe and their offense, which left the month of May hitting as well as any team in the Majors.

Friday the team was held to four runs by the Twins, and while they got off to a good start with a run on a double steal on Saturday, the bats again were held in check as the Twins shut down the Tribe and eventually got to Trevor Bauer for six runs (three earned) in a Minnesota 7-1 win.

The victory means that the best the Indians can do in the four-game set in the Twin cities is come up with a split, something they will try and do Sunday afternoon. Fans can watch the game online live with a free MLB stream.

For now they sit at 30-27 on the year, and while the Twins are still under .500 at 24-30, they have bested the Indians and done a nice job doing it the last two days.

Here’s three takeaways from the latest Indians setback.

  1. If the author is a 21-year veteran of sports media coverage, he should know by now….

    1- that the verb “try” is followed by an infinitive……
    “…something they will try and do on Sunday afternoon,” should be “try TO do…”

    2- “…..the team started good as they scored a run in the second…..” is painful to the ears of an educated person.
    “…the team started WELL..” is the proper use of an adverb, not an adjective, modifying the verb “started.”

    3- Who edits these things?
