To say it was a weekend to forget for the Indians in New York is an understatement.
Sunday the awful weekend came to a close with a game that looked like it would be decided by the first run that crossed the plate. The Tribe put up four such runs, but yet another disaster by the pen was their undoing as the Yankees rallied for a 7-4 walk-off 9th inning win.
The loss puts the Indians at 17-17 on the season, and they have lost three of their last four games, including one of the two from their double header on Thursday.
Maybe a day off is just what this team needs, and they will get two of those this week, starting Monday before they head to Milwaukee for a short two-game set with the Brewers on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Here’s three takeaways from this latest tough setback.
