Pen Meltdown Spells Sweep for Indians as Yankees Walk-Off Tops Tribe 7-4; Three Takeaways From the Loss

1. Clevinger Deserved Better

If there was one big positive to Sunday’s game it was the effort by Indians starter Mike Clevinger, who went 7.1 innings, stopping the Yankees cold for the most part.

He struck out 10 batters, walking four, and gave up two earned runs on just one hit in the effort.

He was able to throw strikes when he needed them, and didn’t allow a hit until the 5th inning. While the three walks did hurt, they were not the reason the Indians lost the game, and he should be proud of the effort, throwing 116 pitches on the day.

Again Clevinger has proven he can go up against any lineup in the AL.
