Indians Extend Win Streak To Four Games With Win Over Reds; Three Takeaways

1. Josh Tomlin

Whatever the Indians have changed over Tomlin’s last few starts, it’s working.

Tomlin (5.59 ERA) recorded his seventh win of the year on Monday night, pitching six complete innings. He gave up four hits, two earned runs and walked only one, while striking out six.

Tomlin found his groove at the end of the second inning. After he struck out Devin Mesoraco for the final out, he went on to strike out the next five batters he faced.

His six consecutive strikeouts are a new career best, and one shy of Corey Kluber’s club-record seven consecutive strikeouts.

“When he’s going good, that’s what he can do,” Indians manager Terry Francona said of Tomlin’s outing.

“I think just execution of pitches, and following Roberto [Perez’s] glove,” Tomlin said when asked what changed in that second inning.

“I never try to get strikeouts, I never know how people can get as many as the Klubers of the world get them but it was kind of nice to get those for sure.”
