Indians continue to slump

Well, that nice little run of victories the Indians had a few weeks ago may have officially ended. The rare energy and passion seen during that span appears to have died. The Tribe lost for the fifth time in six games Thursday to the Twins and are 5-8 in the month of September after storming through August. Starter Cliff Lee only gave up one run through four, but was pulled after his pitch cout rose. Then Eric Wedge went through his relievers like they were going out of style. Eight relievers he used to finish the final five innings in their 9-4 loss. The Twins pulled ahead for good in the eighth when they scored three on two home runs off Fernando Cabrera.

Andy Marte was basically the Indians’ offense, which only managed six hits. Marte had two of them, including a three-run shot in the sixth that temporarily tied the game at four.
