Second Thoughts Game #158: White Sox 2, Indians 7
Playoff fever in Cleveland. It’s not often that the words ‘playoff’ and ‘Cleveland’ are mentioned in the same sentence. Yet the Indians have defied all odds and put together a magical season on their way to a potential wild card berth. With a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night, the Tribe improved their record to 88-70. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives his thoughts on the game.

Second Thoughts Game #154: Astros 1, Indians 2
Earned runs, unearned runs, walks, hits, errors, extra innings, rain. In the end, it doesn’t matter how you win since they’re all chalked up the same in the win column. On Friday night, the Indians took game two of the four-game set against the lowly Astros 2-1 in a rain-shortened six and a half innings of play. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps how mistakes and mother nature helped usher the Tribe to victory.

Second Thoughts Game #151: Indians 5, Royals 3
Those fans whose television sets survived past the fifth inning were treated to a Tribe comeback win against wild card rival Kansas City to even the final regular season series between the two AL Central clubs at one. With their 5-3 win, the Indians clinched their first winning season since 2007 thanks key RBI hits by Michael Bourn and shutout pitching by the bullpen. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the game.

Second Thoughts Game #147: Indians 3, White Sox 1
In pretty much a polar opposite game of Thursday night’s slug fest by the Indians, it came down to Danny Salazar and the bullpen holding off Chicago to walk away with a narrow 3-1 victory to continue to put pressure on the wild card race as four teams, including the Tribe continue to challenge the Rays for that second wild card spot. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his thoughts on the Indians' 10th straight win over Chicago.

Second Thoughts Game #144: Royals 6, Indians 3
As good as the starting pitching has been in the second half, Zach McAllister has not been able to join the party as much as he or the Indians would like. In his last 10 starts, the right-hander has gone 3-4 with a 4.96 ERA. Unfortunately, Tuesday was more of the same story as McAllister allowed four runs in five innings in a frustrating 6-3 loss to Kansas City. The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his thoughts on the loss.

Should the Indians move Perez out of the closer's role?
For those whose hair hasn’t turned gray or been pulled out after Monday night’s – let’s say dramatic – win over the Royals, I have a question for you: Should the Indians consider moving Chris Perez out of the closer’s role for the rest of the year as they make their push for the playoffs? That's a question that the IBI's Jake Dungan throws out there and wonders if the Indians would be better off with a change to the order of the backend of their bullpen.

Second Thoughts Game #140: Mets 1, Indians 8
A week ago, we were in the middle of a brutal 1-5 road trip. While some of the slumps this season have been particularly frustrating, this team has proven time and time and time again that they are not in this to roll over and quit. The visiting Mets were blown out 8-1 as Scott Kazmir's dominant start and Nick Swisher's grand slam paved the way for the Tribe. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the victory.

Second Thoughts Game #138: Orioles 3, Indians 4
10-9 with a 3.79 ERA. Would you believe me if I told you these stats belong to Ubaldo Jimenez? The same guy who lost 14 games in 2012 and hasn’t failed to get his ERA below five since arriving in Cleveland. Well, on Tuesday night, the right-hander pitched six shutout innings to earn his 10th win of the season. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives his thoughts on another crucial win by the Tribe in their wild card chase.

Second Thoughts Game #134: Indians 2, Tigers 7
A rough start for McAllister, a lost fly ball by Bourn with the bases loaded, wild pitches and more missed scoring opportunities did the Indians in again on Friday night in Detroit even with Miguel Cabrera taken out of the game early with an injury. The rain provided some relief to the torment, but ended up forcing the game to be called to hand Cleveland their fourth straight loss. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the game.

Second Thoughts Game #131: Indians 0, Braves 2
Since the start of August, the Indians offense has been next to last in the major leagues in production. Tuesday night was more of the same, unfortunately as the Indians scattered six hits and five walks without plating a run. One fateful pitch to Elliot Johnson was the difference in an otherwise well-pitched game. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he gives his second thoughts on the Tribe's 2-0 loss in Atlanta.

Second Thoughts Game #128: Twins 5, Indians 1
Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez took his eighth loss of the season tonight and believe it or not, it wasn’t totally his own doing. While he did allow two runs on four hits in the first two innings, he pitched lights out the rest of the way going six innings and striking out a season-high 10 batters. However, he was handed the loss after the Indians fell 5-1 to the Twins. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan for his thoughts on the game.
