A Texas Sized 9th Helps Tribe to 9-6 Win Over Rangers – Three Takeaways from the Sweep


That’s about all you can say about the first three games for the 2017 Cleveland Indians, who will probably hate to say good-bye to Texas after scoring 21 runs in completing an impressive sweep over a team that won more games than any other in the American League last season.

The most impressive part of the sweep?

Easy, two of them came against Rangers closer Sam Dyson, who was shell shocked in Wednesday’s ninth inning, not being able to find the plate and then Francisco Lindor crushed a pitch to the seats to send Dyson to the showers and give the Indians a three-run lead.

The Tribe has a well deserved day off on Thursday before they travel to Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks over the weekend before they come home for the opener on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox.

We wrap up a heck of a sweep with our three takeaways from the win, a sweet win that has this team sitting atop the AL Central a few days into 2017.
