Cleveland stumbles to halfway point |

From Mandy Bell:

It’s a season full of peaks and valleys and at the 81-game mark, the Indians are in one of their deepest valleys, owning a season-high six-game losing streak. But just six days ago, the team was atop one of its highest peaks, bouncing back from outfielder Josh Naylor’s gruesome injury with a 13-run outburst against the Tigers.

At that time, Cleveland was on pace to win 90 games this season — a pace few people would’ve expected entering the season, especially with all the injuries the club has had to navigate. But since then, the wheels have slowly started to fall off the cart.
