Tribe loses series finale

The offensive woes continue for the Tribe, who lost for the third straight time after winning the first game after the All-Star break. After Sunday’s 5-2 loss, they have now scored two runs in each of their last three games. Going into the game, it could have been assumed that a slugfest would be in order. Jeremy Sowers and Carlos Silva took the hill, both of whom had ERAs in the near sevens entering Sunday’s action. The Tribe were unable to find any rhythm off Silva, who gave up only five hits in six innings. Sowers surrendered all five of the Twins’ runs in seven innings. The young lefty also allowed three home runs, two of which were to Luis Castillo and Rondell White, who have four homers on the season between the two. The Tribe got their two runs on a Grady Sizemore first inning homer and a Casey Blake RBI single.

“It seemed like all series long we couldn’t get any mojo at the plate, any momentum,” said Todd Hollandsworth, who went 0-for-4.

“When you put yourself in a position to get a leg up early on in a series, you need to take advantage of it,” Wedge said. “Our pitching was pretty good this series, but they shut us down offensively.”
