Second Thoughts Game #134: Cleveland 3, Kansas City 2

Second Thoughts Game #128: Astros 2, Indians 3
It was a walk-off in Cleveland as Jose Ramirez drove home Tyler Holt to seal a 3-2 victory. In a series that has been defined by a lack of defense on both sides, Danny Salazar may have been the biggest perpetrator of poor defense on the Indians' side on Saturday, as his failure to back up a play in the 3rd allowed a second run to score. Nevertheless, the IBI's John Grimm suggests that from a purely pitching perspective, Danny Salazar is becoming the non-traditional contact manager that Cleveland had hoped.

Second Thoughts Game #127: Astros 5, Indians 1
Carlos Carrasco threw another excellent start, but it was a late-inning collapse on the basepaths and with the gloves that shot down the Cleveland chances late as the Indians lost on Friday to the Astros, 5-1. Yet for the second game in a row, it was a Zach Walters solo home run that provided Cleveland's only run. The Legend of Zacky Thunderstick rises, and the IBI's John Grimm breaks it down.

Second Thoughts Game #126: Indians 1, Twins 4
Thursday was another reminder that nothing is automatic in baseball and even the best in the game have their off-days.
