What a week. From the unreal game 7 victory, to the craziness of the parades and celebrations, and now the Indians amazing winning streak.
As a born and raised Clevelander, this is not normal and I really don’t know how to react to such nice things. It can’t be a horrible misunderstanding, can it?
Here’s hoping for another fantastic week of Tribe baseball!
Indians 9, Tigers 3
The Tribe used four home runs to break this one wide open; with Juan Uribe, Tyler Naquin, Mike Napoli, and Lonnie Chisenhall all going deep in the fifth inning. Josh Tomlin earned the win, improving to 9-1 on the year. With the win, the Indians are 14 games over .500 and hold a five game lead in the AL Central.
The Indians starting rotation owns a 1.96 ERA during the club’s nine game winning streak. From Kyle Beery:
Josh Tomlin took note of his teammates' recent run of three complete games in four outings. He did his best to deliver one of his own Sunday, but came up just short as he allowed three runs over eight innings.
"It's not that you want to one-up them, but you want to go out there and compete like them and go out there and do your job like them," Tomlin said. "They go out there and do their job, and my job after that is to go out there and do the same thing. So when you see them have a good game, you talk to them, ask them what they did, how they attacked them, and come up with a game plan together."
Plenty of confidence here from the Indians third baseman, who, by the way, likely dresses way better than us.
