3.) Offense Shows Up To Late
The Indians kept quite after a leadoff single from Francisco Lindor to start the game and didn’t have another hit until the 6th inning from Michael Brantley. Following the walk by Alonso in the 2nd inning, the team was 0-13 until Brantley managed to get a hit.
Cleveland did attempt to make a comeback in the eighth inning when they managed to score 2 runs and have the potential tying run on base. The Indians couldn’t get their offense rolling early enough to start the rally and were handed their 50th loss of the season by Minnesota.
The Indians will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s loss by sending Mike Clevinger to the hill and will be opposed by the Twins Jake Odorizzi at 7:10 on Wednesday.
