3. Offense Held in Check
Thursday the Indians put up four runs, but three of those came from a homer by Francisco Lindor. On Friday, they didn’t get that big blast, and were held to one run on just three hits, with the only run of the game coming on a Gio Urshela homer in 3rd inning.
After the offense has been so good over the last month, it’s understandable for the team to have an ‘off’ night if you will, it’s just a shame that this night the offense did little in a game in which Trevor Bauer gave the Indians every chance to win.
Erasmo Ramirez, who came into Friday’s game with a 5-6 mark with a 4.50 ERA, held the Indians to just the one run on three hits.
All the Indians hits were before the fourth inning, and they mounted no offense after the fourth frame.
