Well the Indians offense looked like the Tigers offense. The red hot Indians got cooled off by the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Indians had several chances to score, they had 9 hits, but couldn’t push across a single run. (Is this the Indians or the Tigers?)
The key moment in the game was in the bottom of the 4th when the Indians had the bases loaded with 1 out and Asdrubal Cabrera at the plate. Alex Cobb got Cabrera to hit into a 3-6-1 double play to end the threat and the inning.
Nick Swisher had chances as well but went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts and left 5 runners on base.
The Rays are off to meet the Red Sox and I’m picking the Rays in 6.

Cleveland had a terrible time against teams with winning records, i.e. good teams. They didn’t really belong in the playoffs, and would have been an easy out for the Red Sox. Now Tampa is going to give them trouble, but in the end I don’t know if they will hit enough. Hope your prediction is correct though, because I hate the Red Sox!
I see Delmon Young was the hero with another post-season home run….
Sark, I did see that statistic where the Indians were horrible against +.500 teams.
My prediction for the division series, I guess, is more of a hope. I hate the Red Sox more so since that tool Dempster intentionally hit A Rod. I didn’t care much for A Rod until that play.
Well we get more than one game so I hope Max can get the first one…
I won’t make a prediction on the Tigers series because if we revisit my prediction from the All Star break, they were mostly wrong. 🙂
