The Indians exploded offensively last night and scored ten runs with two outs and beat the Rays 10-6 in a much needed win for them.

Charlie Adams breaks down the game only how he can in today's "Second Thoughts".

The Indians finished off the sweep of the Reds on Wednesday night with a convincing 8-1 win, and in the process got pay back for the sweep and thumping the Reds put on them last week in Cincinnati. The Indians got a complete game gem from Justin Masterson who looks to have turned a corner, and also got big hits from Asdrubal Cabrera, Johnny Damon and Lonnie Chisenhall. Charlie Adams shares his "second thoughts" on the series win (sweep)...

Wow, what a ballgame last night. The Indians got a much needed win and shot in the arm when Asdrubal Cabrera deposited a two-run homer into the right-center field seats to give the Indians a stunning 3-2 win in extra innings over the Reds. With the win and a White Sox loss, the Indians are now back in first place in the AL Central. Charlie Adams has his "second thoughts" on the game...

The Indians ran into another hot pitcher last night and the bullpen gave up another crucial two-run homer in the seventh inning which put the game out of reach, resulting in a 5-3 loss by the Indians to the Reds. Today they finish up their series with an afternoon game and will try to salvage one game in the series, but before they do that, check out Charlie Adams' "second thoughts" from last night's game.

The Indians started off the Battle of Ohio with a thud last night as they lost to the Reds in game one of their series 7-1. Really, it was "just baseball" as Cueto pitched brilliantly and the Indians hung in until the 7th inning when the Reds pulled away with a big homer from one of the hottest hitters in the National League. Charlie Adams provides his second thoughts...

The Indians beat the Tigers on Tuesday night by a score of 4-2, their fourth in a row against the Motor City Kitties. The Indians once again played to their strengths as they got very good starting pitching from Ubaldo Jimenez, the bullpen was very good, and they were opportunistic with their hits. Charlie Adams chimes in with his second thoughts on the big night for the Indians.

The Indians lost last night to the Royals 8-2, and once again Justin Masterson struggled with his command. He did not walk anyone, but it was the location of his pitches all night which resulted in 8 runs allowed on 9 hits. On top of that the Indians faced a lefty starter, which often spells doom for them. Charlie Adams provides his "second thoughts" on the game.

Round 1 of the heavyweight battle between the two main contenders in the AL Central went to the Indians last night as they beat the Detroit Tigers by a score of 5-3. Ubaldo Jimenez dodged and weaved all night and got a win, but it was yet another dominant performance from the bullpen and some patient, timely hitting that led to another Indians win.

The Indians won 5-0 on Tuesday afternoon in Minnesota and swept the mini-two game series from the Twins. Derek Lowe was at his best with a complete game shutout and the offense gave him just enough support.

The Indians were beat pretty good by the White Sox last night 8-1. The game was over early when the White Sox put up a 6-spot in the fourth inning, and with the red hot Jake Peavy pitching, the game was essentially over. Before the Indians move on to Boston today for the start of a four-game series, Charlie Adams has some "second thoughts" on last night's game.

The Indians had trouble all night against John Danks and Justin Masterson struggled with his command, but through it all the Indians managed to stay in the game to give themselves a chance to tie it late (they did) before they ultimately lost in extra innings 5-3 to their AL Central rival the Chicago White Sox. Charlie Adams provides his "second thoughts" on last night's loss.

The Indians evened up their three game series with the White Sox on Wednesday night, and today will go for two in a row and take the rubber match. Last night the Indians got big knocks from Carlos Santana and Travis Hafner, Josh Tomlin was steady, and the bullpen continues to be the strength of the team. Charlie Adams breaks the game down and provides his second thoughts...

Well, that was ugly. Chris Sale was tough on the Indians again as he and the rest of the White Sox' staff held the Indians to 2 runs, their 8th straight game scoring 4 runs or less as well as 16 of 21 games. On top of that, Ubaldo Jimenez was a train wreck and the defense was brutal. All of that is a recipe for a bad loss, which Charlie Adams' gives his "second thoughts" on.
