The Cleveland Indians (35-30 1st AL Central) had won three of their last four games before heading to Kansas City for a three game series. They had no answers for the Royals who swept the series with a 3-2 win last night.
The Tribe’s Michael Martinez had a rough night on third base as he the team gave Jose Ramirez the night off. Martinez was a part of some of the many errors committed by the team, but a wild throw in the fifth inning and a home run off reliever Bryan Shaw in the eight sealed the Tribes’ doom.
“It’s very frustrating,” Shaw said. “[Tomlin] got us the opportunity to get the win. He got us a chance to win the ballgame. Obviously, I didn’t hold up doing my job, so it stinks for him getting a no-decision out of that.”

After dropping the first game of the season 6-2 to the Boston Red Sox, the Cleveland Indians bounced back last night after both Mike Napoli and Carlos Santana delivered crushing home runs to collect their first win of the season.
“It’s a really good win,” Napoli said. “They make the comeback, take the lead, and we were able to scrap away that run to tie the game and you know, ultimately I hit that homer to take the lead. So, great team win overall.”

The Detroit Tigers hot streak continues; they came into Cleveland and pasted 25 runs, 10 more than the Indians were able to muster to sweep the Tribe and go 5-0 for the season.
The main issue for the Indians was their awful pitching. TJ House and Zach McCallister opened games 1 & 2 and gave up 17 runs. Game three featured Corey Kluber who held it together for 6.5 innings, giving up only two runs until the bullpen broke down giving the game and six runs up.

After taking a foul ball to the head on Sunday night, Indians catcher Carlos Santana will be re-evaluated Tuesday afternoon for concussion symptoms. Santana fell ill on Monday, was sent back to the hotel and did not participate in the 6-2 loss to the Chicago Whitesox.
“We don’t know if he’s sick or he has concussion-like symptoms,” Manager Terry Francona said Monday. “So we sent him back to the hotel and we’ll re-evaluate him and we’ll go from there.”
