The Indians have not lost four games in a row this season. Corey Kluber's goal tonight is to make sure that doesn't happen, but he can't do it by himself; the Tribe offense, which of late has been putrid, hasn't scored more than one run in a game since last Sunday (when they scored three). The offense had actually been holding things together after the All-Star Break, allowing the Indians to keep or maintain their division lead despite some at times awful pitching. But not this week, hence the lopsided losses.
