Another bullpen collapse sends Tribe streaking in wrong direction

The Indians rode a six-game win streak and things were looking somewhat positive. Unfortunately, they have regressed and are back to their old inconsistent ways again. The monster that is the Indians bullpen reared its ugly head again in their 7-2 loss to the Twins Wednesday night. Starter Cliff Lee battled through his five innings and left with the game tied 2-2. After the relief work of Fernando Cabrera, it was still tied going into the eighth when all hell broke loose for the Tribe bullpen. Fausto Carmona and Rafael Betancourt combined for five runs in the inning, leaving any chance of a Tribe victory. Michael Cuddyer hit a three-run shot off Betancourt in the eighth to blow the game wide open.

What is it with the Metrodome? The dome of horrors continues to haunt the Tribe this season, where they are 2-6.
