The Cleveland Indians couldn’t muster any offense yesterday and the pitchers were a tad off for once. Corey Kluber started on short rest yesterday as he worked 5 innings in which he gave up 4 hits, 2 runs (both earned) and 2 walks while whiffing 7 batters. He was the losing pitcher for the Tribe. Dan Otero was next up and he threw a scoreless inning despite giving up 2 hits. Bryan Shaw had a rough time as he worked 1/3 of an inning in which he gave up 2 hits, 2 runs (1 earned) while walking 1 and whiffing no one. Mike Clevinger finished up this game for the Tribe, working 1 2/3 innings in which he gave up 1 run, 1 run (it was earned) and 1 walk while whiffing 1 batter.
Tyler Naquin (1 for 2 with a double) and Roberto Perez (1 for 2 with a double and a RBI) were pretty much the extent of the Tribe’s offense yesterday against Blue Jays’ pitching. Coco Crisp was o for 2 with a walk and a run scored in this game. The Indians were a combined 2 for 28 (.071 avg) with 2 walks and 9 whiffs in this game. The Indians are still up 3-1 in the N.L.C.S.!
