For the third consecutive time, the Indians lost a game Shane Bieber started, 4–0 on Friday.
Bieber has been good. He’s given up two runs in each of his last three starts. He went six innings the first two times and seven innings on Friday night from the Trop but the Indians just aren’t scoring him any runs. That was literally the case in game one against Tampa.
Cleveland managed five hits against the foursome of Austin Pruitt, Oliver Drake, Colin Poche, and Andrew Kittredge.
The Indians also lost Tyler Naquin, who made a sensational catch in left field but hurt his knee in the process and had to use a cart to leave the field.
Luckily for the club, Jordan Luplow is scheduled to make his return from injury in this game on Sunday.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa got all four of its runs in the seventh inning, one on an Avisail Garcia single against Bieber and three more on Jesus Aguilar’s seventh home run as a Ray off of Adam Cimber.
The Rays’ win didn’t affect the order of the Wild Card standings but it did tighten things up a bit. Oakland is just a single win back of Cleveland and the Rays trail the A’s by a game (two in the loss column).
Charlie Morton was embarrassed a bit in his last start against his former team, the Houston Astros. He’ll look forward to taking the mound again, this time back at home where he is so good.
If the Indians couldn’t break through against Pruitt, I’m not sure how they will against Morton.
