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.
