CLEVELAND – The Indians wasted another good pitching performance from their starter Wednesday, as Trevor Bauer’s seven solid innings wasn’t enough as the Colorado Rockies rallied for a run in the 9th and a run in the 12th to take home a 3-2 win.
The offense managed to put runners on base a lot, but had just one big hit when it counted, that being Frankie Lindor’s two run homer to put the Indians up 2-1 in the 3rd inning. It looked like it might hold up, but Cody Allen blew a save in the 9th when Bradley Zimmer tried to slide and stop a ball from getting by him.
The ball rolled away from him, allowing a double to Jonathan Lucroy and the Rockies to tie the game. Charlie Blackmon’s 27th homer of the season and second in two days won the game in the 12th off Indians reliever Zach McAllister.
Here’s three takeaways from a game the Indians looked like they were going to sneak in the win column, but instead lost to drop to 60-51.
