CLEVELAND – The Indians bats have had their issues all season scoring runs unless they have come via the long ball.
That changed in a big way on Monday night.
The Tribe put up a seven spot on the Texas Rangers, scoring four of those runs in a big 8th inning rally as the Indians rallied to top Texas 7-5 at Progressive Field.
The rally came after reliever Tyler Olson uncharacteristically allowed two runs on three hits to allow Texas to take a 4-3 lead.
The Indians would not be denied, sending eight men to the plate in the 8th as they put up a four-spot for the comeback win. The victory ends April with a 15-12 record for the Indians, and hopefully the good night of offense Monday is a sign of things to come as we get into May.
Here’s three takeaways from the big win, as the team wraps up a winning first month of the season three games over .500.
