Bats Come Through Late; Indians Rally to Top Rangers 7-5 to End April 15-12, Three Takeaways From the Win

2. More Pen Woes

It seems like the last few days the Indians bullpen has had all kinds of issues, and Monday night against the Rangers was no different.

This time it was Tyler Olson’s turn to struggle, as the usual lights out Tribe reliever gave up two runs on three hits in just two thirds of an inning, this after Trevor Bauer allowed the tying homer to make it a 2-2 game with two outs in the seventh.

Up 3-2, Olson gave up an infield single to start the 8th, and then after a wild pitch, he gave up a double to Jurickson Profar to tie the game at three.

The Rangers took the 4-3 lead on the next batter, as Nomar Mazara doubled to bring in Profar to make it a 4-3 game.

It was the first runs allowed by Olson since April 10th when he allowed a run against the Tigers in an Indians 2-1 win.
