3. The comeback kids
Tonight marked Cleveland’s 20th come-from-behind victory, and kept them from falling into a three-game losing streak.
What’s even more impressive is the fact that they are just 6-13 against National League opponents this season. While the NL has had their way with Cleveland this year, the Indians got their bats going at just the right time tonight.
A win like Tuesday’s is exactly what the Tribe needs as we inch closer to the postseason– one that was gritty, and had to be gutted out.
“Until we’ve used all our outs and we’re losing, I think we all believe we stand a chance,” Kluber said.
To make things even better, with a loss from the Royals tonight, the Indians are now four games ahead in the AL Central.
The Indians are back tomorrow with a day game against the Rockies at 12:10 to wrap up interleague play.
