Seven-run inning not enough, Tribe loses second straight

A game that started out extremely ugly for the Tribe actually turned out to be rather interesting. After getting blown out of the water to start, the Indians put together a massive seventh inning to make it close but in the end the White Sox prevailed 10-8 Saturday night. The nightmare of a season for Fausto Carmona continues. Starting in an Indians uniform for the first time since April 29, Carmona allowed five runs in three innings as the Sox jumped out to a 10-1 lead after six innings. The Indians surprisingly were able to make a game of it when they put up seven on the board in the seventh inning to cut the deficit to two. Kevin Kouzmanoff highlighted the inning with a three-run homer but the Indians simply seemed to run out of gas the rest of the way.

Put him in the closer’s role, he struggles. Send him to Buffalo, he struggles. Bring him back to the Indians’ rotation, he struggles. Fausto may have a lot going through his head right now. Perhaps the organization has tried to do too much with him too soon.
