Bauer dominates Sox as Indians offense does just enough for the win - Let's Go Tribe

Bauer, Tribe end White Sox winning streak |

Cleveland Indians, Trevor Bauer beat Chicago White Sox, 3-1 |

The offense once again revved its engine but didn't go very far. However the three runs that they did score were enough for Trevor Bauer and the bullpen (mostly Cody Allen). The offense is going to have to get better at pushing runs across, but the Indians have the ingredients to pull the type of winning streak needed to get back into relevancy.

Gomes building up to nine innings behind dish |

Getting Yan Gomes back in the lineup will certainly help, and it looks like (barring setbacks) he'll re-join the team by the end of the week. Removing auto-outs is the first priority for a struggling offense, and right now Roberto Perez, last night's game notwithstanding, is an auto-out. I think Perez will be optioned to Columbus when Gomes returns so that he can continue to hit everyday now that Brett Hayes is on the roster.

Corey Kluber doesn't say much, but history does about his 30 strikeouts in two starts |

Chris Sale added his voice to the growing number of MLB players saying that Corey Kluber's stuff is the best they've seen:

"Kluber has the nastiest stuff I've ever seen," said Chris Sale, who started Monday's game for the White Sox. Sale struck out 11 in eight innings. Sale, like Kluber, left with a no-decision as the White Sox won, 2-1, in 10 innings.

Santana not yet able to loosen back |

Carlos Santana once again was out of the lineup last night thanks to back spasms. The Indians don't seen too concerned about it, but he may miss another game or two before returning to the lineup.
