If the Indians lose again today, it will mark a new low point in the season, one I would have a hard time believing they'll come back from (even though they might still be within 4 games of a playoff spot). They'll have to overcome their nemesis, a left-handed starting pitcher, if they're going to win. Can Danny Salazar keep Kansas City contained enough foe the Tribe bats to come through???
