Slide continues

Cliff Lee was cruising through the first six innings until the seventh when he ran into trouble. He gave up three in the inning as the Tribe fell again, this time to the Detroit Tigers 5-4 at the Jake. With the game tied at two, Craig Monroe put the Tigers up with a two-run homer in the seventh. The Tribe battled back but it once again wasn’t enough as they lose their fourth straight. Casey Blake homered twice in the game for the Indians, giving him six on the season.

We are really pressing right now. As Wedge mentioned after the game, the players may be putting too much on their shoulders and think they have to get the job done themselves.

“We’re in one of those stretches right now and have to work our way out,” Indians manager Eric Wedge said. “Some guys are trying to do a bit too much. If they just do what they are capable of individually, it will work out as a team.”
