Indians get fifth walk-off win of the year; three takeaways

3. Clevinger’s less than stellar outing

Mike Clevinger had an underwhelming start for the Indians, and did not factor into the decision.

He lasted just four and one-third innings, giving up four hits and four earned runs. Two of the hits he gave up were home runs that accounted for all of the Red Sox runs in the game. Clevinger also only managed four strikeouts while walking four.

Monday’s start for Clevinger was similar to his first career outing against Boston on July 31 of this year. In that game, he allowed five runs and seven hits in just over three innings on the mound.

“Both walks ended up being two-run home runs,” Indians manager Terry Francona said of Clevinger’s outing. “His stuff is fine. Almost it’s like he’s pitching around guys. I know he’s not. Some of the guys that were walking guys to get the next guy, it gets dangerous as you can see.”

As a result, the bullpen had to gut out five innings of work, but did so without relinquishing anymore runs.

In other bullpen news, Andrew Miller left the game after throwing just seven pitches in the seventh inning due reaggravated right knee patellar tendonitis.
