Indians Offense Stalls Again in Game Two of ALDS in 3-1 Loss to Astros; Three Takeaways

The time has come for Indians fans to officially hit the panic button.

Saturday in Houston the Tribe for the second straight day did nothing on offense to inspire a thought of a series win over the Astros, as the team managed just one run in an eventual 3-1 loss to the defending World Series Champion Astros.

Houston leads the best-of-five series two games to none, with games three and four in Cleveland scheduled for Monday and, if the Indians keep the series alive with a win, Tuesday at Progressive Field.

It’s the first time the team has trailed 2-0 in a divisional round since 1996, when the dropped the first two games in Baltimore. They lost that series in five games.

Saturday the team had a lead after a Francisco Lindor solo homer off Gerrit Cole in the third, and they held that lead till the Astros broke through for a couple runs in the 6th inning.

There’s going to be plenty to look at for this latest Indians loss, and now it’s a do or die on Monday in Cleveland, and the team will go with Mike Clevinger to try and save their season.

For now, here’s three takeaways from latest setback.
