DH split a ‘good sign’ for Tribe |

From Mandy Bell:

The Indians needed some momentum heading into a crucial four-game series against the White Sox on Monday, and it looked like that would be nearly impossible after a 4-1 loss in the matinee and a slow start in Game 2, being held scoreless through the first five frames. But then, four hits, a walk, an error and a groundout in the sixth knotted the game.

“I heard some conversations in the dugout that were very positive, you know, ‘Let’s have good at-bats. Let’s keep grinding,’” Hale said. “And then they came through [in] that sixth inning when we pushed four across and tied it.”
