Yesterday's Game: Minnesota 4, Cleveland 1
When seven out of your starting nine don't have a hit and six out of nine don't reach base, that's a recipe for a long day. It was only thanks to Jose Berrios' wild pitch that the Indians were able to get on the board. Mike Clevinger was effective for most of his start (though extremely inefficient with his pitch count), but in the fourth essentially gave the Twins three runs thanks to walks, wild pitches, and a throwing error.
Tom Hamilton's description of the squirrel (condensed in this video) was almost worth having to listen to the rest of the game. Almost.
I think there is some effect of last October on Kluber - how could there not be? - but it's hard to pin this injury on the stressful playoff run.

I've moved on almost a decade ago, why is it taking everyone else so long?
