Indians Bullpen Loses It Once Again, Indians Lose 3 of 4 Against Twins, Three Takeaways from 7-5 Loss

3.) Indians Bullpen Costly Once Again

You can’t necessarily blame the bullpen as much as you can in previous games mainly due to the fact that if a single player on the opposing team hits three longballs it will be difficult to come out on the winning end.

Indians starting pitcher Mike Clevinger came back out to start the seventh inning, which proved to be costly as he gave up a solo homer to Brian Dozier. Clevinger probably wouldn’t come back out for the seventh inning if the bullpen was having better success than they have as of late but recently Francona has trusted his starting staff more so than the bullpen. A similar situation happened to Trevor Bauer a few weeks ago in which Francona let his starting pitcher stay in a bit longer than he’d like.

Clev pitched in 6.0 innings, gave up 7 hits, allowed 4 earned runs, walked 3, and struck out 3 batters. He came away with a no-decision.

Cody Allen ended up with the loss following a two-run walkoff homer by Rosario.

During the series against the Twins, the bullpen has given up 6 earned runs over 10 innings pitched.

The Indians will be looking to get back to their winning ways on Tuesday when they face the Milwaukee Brewers. First pitch is expected to be at 7:10 pm EST and the Indians will be sending Corey Kluber to the hill. Kluber will be opposed by Junior Guerra of the Brewers.
