CLEVELAND – The San Diego Padres rolled into Cleveland tied with the Reds and Phillies for the worst road record in baseball, but in two nights have erased that with two wins over the defending AL Champions in their park.
The Indians, still without manager Terry Francona, again did little on offense, scoring just a pair of runs on Frankie Lindor RBI’s as they fell to San Diego, again – this time by a final of 6-2.
As has been the case at home way too often this year, the Tribe had their chances on offense, with again leaving all kinds of traffic on the base paths, but were unable to again come up with big hits when needed the most.
Now at 44-39, the team will try to not get swept as they will send Josh Tomlin to the mound on Thursday.
Here’s three takeaways from the Wednesday night affair as the two teams will wrap up the series with a 7:10pm matchup on Thursday.
