Indians Bury the Reds Behind Avalanche of Offense in 19-4 Pounding; Three Takeaways From the Win

3. Let the Past be the Past

Wednesday nights blowout win was much needed as it put to bed a bad four-game losing streak in which the team really should have won two of the games (Saturday up 3-0 in the 8th and Tuesday up 4-0 in the 9th).

They came out determined after a team meeting in which Terry Francona took full blame for the situation on Tuesday and pounded the Reds into submission, never letting them breathe as they put up 19 runs on 19 hits.

The team is still clearly the front runner to win the division by a wide margin, and they have a chance to shut up some naysayers starting on Thursday as they host the Yankees for the first of four at Progressive Field.

Don’t forget the Yanks beat the Indians in a weekend series earlier this season in the Bronx, and in those three games the Indians could have again won two of them, more so the Sunday game in which they had another late lead slip away.

The series starts with a huge matchup as Corey Kluber will go for the Indians against another AL All-Star, that being Luis Severino, who comes to Progressive Field with a 14-2 mark with a 2.12 ERA.
