Second Thoughts Game #122: Orioles 0, Indians 6
After three straight games decided by only one run, Cleveland's offense took advantage of its opportunities and came out of Saturday's contest with a decisive 6-0 victory over Baltimore. Powered by timely Santana and Brantley home runs, Cleveland gave more than enough breathing room for Carlos Carrasco, and he delivered with a seven-inning shutout performance over only 79 pitches in his second start since re-joining the rotation. The IBI's John Grimm, typically a proponent of Carrasco, briefly takes the opposite tact, and presents limited arguments against Carrasco's continuing excellence as a starter.

Second Thoughts Game #121: Orioles 1, Indians 2
It took eleven innings, but Cleveland prevailed over Baltimore 2-1 through solo home runs by Zach Walters and Mike Aviles, and through the fiendishly effective Corey Kluber, whose season has vaulted him into entirely largely unprecedented territory within Indians history. The IBI's John Grimm takes Kluber's 2014 performance and, using more traditional metrics, draws implications that could make even the stoic Kluber blush.
