Indians Start the Second Half with a Whimper in 5-0 Shutout Loss to A’s; Three Takeaways From the Loss

The start of the second of the season for the Indians began as the first half ended, with a loss, as the team was shutout by Sonny Gray and a couple Oakland A’s relievers in a 5-0 Oakland win.

The loss is the second straight for the Indians, and they now sit at 47-41 on the season, still 2.5 up on the Twins who lost to the Astros, and three on the Royals who were 5-3 losers at home to the Rangers.

The offense was nowhere to be found, as we will point out shortly, and clearly with a returning Terry Francona this isn’t the start the team wanted.

We take a look at the late night in Oakland, and give you our three takeaways on the loss with another matchup slated for Saturday against the A’s.
