While it was a beautiful day for baseball at Progressive Field, the Indians struggled against the Tampa Bay Rays late into the evening, and ended up falling short with a 6-4 loss.
With the loss Cleveland’s six-game win streak against the Rays came to a screeching halt.
Taking the loss for the Indians was Danny Salazar, (2-4, 5.66 ERA) who gave up five runs off of six hits in his five innings on the mound.
While the Tribe tried to mount a comeback from a 6-1 deficit, it would prove to be too much to overcome.
Cleveland has a chance to close out the series with a win tomorrow, but for now, here are our three takeaways from the loss.
