Clevinger, the Pen and the Long Ball, Indians Shutout Angels 6-0; Three Takeaways from the Win

1. Pen Rebounds Nicely

After a tough Sunday in Seattle when the pen was responsible for allowing three key runs in the 5-4 loss to the Mariners, the Indians bullpen was back to form against the Angels on Monday night.

The unit kept Clevinger’s shutout in tact, with Tyler Olson rebounding for a nice one inning outing, throwing 16 pitches, 13 of which were strikes, recording two K’s.

Nick Goody went 1.1, allowing a hit but not allowing any further damage. Zach McAllister went 0.1, and then new Indians arm Matt Belisle pitched the ninth, allowing a hit with two outs and then a hit batter, but again no damage.

Overall we know this unit is going to have some ups and downs, but Monday night was for sure an ‘up’ for the Tribe pen.
