Cruz’s 9th Inning Walk-Off Sends Mariners to 3-1 Win Over Indians; Three Takeaways From the Loss

1. A Loss That Hurts

No one could expect the Indians to simply keep on winning, and fans have been spoiled by this team winning 27 of 29, but Friday’s loss was one that stung.

Reason being was the team that the Indians are holding off in the AL for the best record won (Houston) and the team they are chasing in the National League for the best record in all of baseball (Los Angeles) also won.

That means if you’re keeping track, the Indians are now 1.5 up on Houston for the best mark in the AL, and they trail the Dodgers by two full games for the best mark in all of baseball.

With the Dodgers having won the series the two teams played in Cleveland, it means the Indians would have to overtake them by a game in order to get the best record and home field in the postseason should the teams meet in the World Series.
