Indians Lose Doubleheader Opener to Jays 13-11 in 11 Innings; Three Takeaways From the Loss

CLEVELAND – On a day that started with rain, the Indians and Jays didn’t even get to start their twin bill until nearly two hours after it was supposed to.

When they finally did get going, they played a back and forth slug fest, complete with a inning that saw the Tribe put up a seven spot, and finally after nine innings the teams were deadlocked at nine.

Finally in the 11th it was Yangervis Solarte who put the final nail in the Indians coffin, as he slammed a two-out grand slam that gave the Jays a 13-9 advantage, a lead they would hold on to for an eventual 13-11 win.

With just about every player on the roster seeing playing time in game one, the Tribe could really use a big outing from spot starter Adam Pluto in game two.

Here’s some takeaways from the loss that drops the Indians to 16-14 after 30 games in 2018.
