Tigers sweep Tribe away

There was no bullpen implosion this time, but the Tribe still lost, completing a three-game sweep by the Tigers. Despite an error that helped score the only run of the game, C.C Sabathia pitched well enough to win but couldn’t get any backing from his offense as the Indians lost 1-0 Sunday afternoon. Sabathia struck out six through seven innings. The Tribe did manage eight base hits in the game but failed to get the key hit when it mattered. They loaded the bases in the seventh with only one out but couldn’t get a run home. Victor Marinez and Shin-Soo Choo each had two hits on the day and accounted for half of the Tribe’s firepower.

Despite a 2-7 record on the road trip, Eric Wedge was pleased with the effort.

“We played good baseball this trip,” Wedge said. “People might scoff at that because of the record and the way it ended up, but we played real good baseball on this road trip.

“We put ourselves in a position to win six of these games, but obviously, it just didn’t work out for us. That doesn’t change the way these guys played. Today we played a good game [but] we just weren’t able to get anything going offensively.”
