Second Thoughts Game #102: Indians 1, Royals 2
It's tough to definitively say what could've been in the game of baseball, but if there was ever one single play to point to as the primary cause for a loss, Ryan Raburn accomplished that feat on Thursday. Danny Duffy had his good stuff working, but Corey Kluber was better and could've very well had a shutout win. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps an especially tough loss for the Tribe.
