Indians Wrap Up West Coast Woes with 5-4 Loss to Giants; Three Takeaways From the Loss

1. A Critical Mistake

For the second time in the three-game set the Indians committed an error that had a direct result in the team losing yet again.

Tuesday it was Brandon Guyer’s error that allowed the Giants to tie the game at one, and Wednesday it was a huge mistake on grounder to Carlos Santana that cost the team.

Leading the game 4-2 in the 8th with Bryan Shaw on the mound, Conor Gillaspie hit what should have been a perfect double-play grounder to Carlos Santana at first, but as has happened more than once this year for an Indians infielder, the ball got past Santana and the Giants scored a run to make it 4-3.

Buster Posey clinched the Giants comeback two batters later with a double that made it a 5-4 Giants lead and eventual win.

The mistake on Santana’s part could have been avoided, and could have ended the inning with the Indians still leading the game 4-3.

It was a play that should have been made, and yet another groaning moment for Tribe fans watching the team struggle to another loss.
