MLB: Cleveland Indians at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland 0 - Tampa Bay 4

Frankie Lindor led off by laying down a terrible, weak-ass bunt, giving away an out to start the game. It was but the first of many terrible at bats from the Indians offense. Other bad things at the Hellhole: Adam Cimber pitched a high-level situation with predictable results and Tyler Naquin fought the wall (and the wall won).
