K.C. puts the heat on the Tribe with a 6-3 win
A three-run sixth inning by the Royals was too much to overcome for the Tribe, as they fell to Kansas City Tuesday night, 6-3. The Indians had the bats going in the contest as the team recorded 12 hits, but unfortunately was unable to string some hits together and could only muster the three runs. Join the IBI's Jim Berdysz as he recaps all the action from the tough Tribe defeat.

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 #142: Mets 2, Indians 1

Clinching their first ever division title on Sept. 8, 1995, the only thing the Indians clinched on Sunday was their first loss in four games. Cleveland had chances to cash in offensively, but couldn't get that big hit like they have during the first two games of the series.
