Tribe roughed up in 12-4 loss to Mariners; three takeaways

CLEVELAND– Coming into Saturday’s contest, the Indians’ previous five games against Seattle in 2018 all came down to one-run.

On Saturday, however, the Mariners worked the Tribe pitching staff for the 12-4 win. It’s the second time this homestand the Indians have given up double-digit runs.

Seattle is an aggressive offensive team, and that was something that manager Terry Francona said the Tribe knew coming into the game. As a result, the Mariners made Cleveland pay for mistakes early in the count.

“One of the more aggressive in the league,” Francona said. “We knew coming in, when they see it, they’re swinging. You make a mistake, they can do some damage.”

The Indians will try to even the series to two games apiece tomorrow afternoon. Until then, here are three takeaways from the loss.
