Three Takeaways from Tribe’s 5-3 Walk-Off Loss to Athletics

The Cleveland Indians suffered a back-breaking 5-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night, as Khris Davis belted a walk-off homer to end it.

Here are three takeaways from the loss.

1. Kluber Pitches Well Enough to Win It Again

Corey Kluber did his job for the most part. He struck out 12 through seven innings, but gave up a game-tying solo homer to start the bottom of the eighth. Matt Chapman hit two homers off Kluber on the night.

Andrew Miller came in and finished off the eighth inning, but walked the lead-off man in the bottom of the ninth.

Bryan Shaw promptly came in and gave up the walk-off homer to Davis.

The Indians went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.

The Tribe is now 1-4 over Kluber’s last five starts. He hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in any of those starts.
