Indians Fireworks Fall Flat, Lose at Home to Padres 1-0 – Three Takeaways From the Setback

2. Ugly Night at the Plate

The Indians offense against the Padres pitching staff should have been a mismatch, and it was.

In favor of the Padres that it.

The top four in the Tribe lineup went an ugly 0-for-14 with two walks and six strikeouts, and two of them (Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley) are two of the five Indians All-Stars.

The Tribe left seven men on base total, and left a runner on third base in four straight innings. They couldn’t muster a run against Padres starter Trevor Cahill and a bunch of San Diego relief pitchers, and because of it Corey Kluber lost in a game he really should have won.

The teams’ hits with runners in scoring

hird base in each of the last four innings. They have scored zero runs. I believe that is not ideal.

Indians now hitless in 10 at-bats with RISP tonight.
