Tribe Take: Strong Week

This week, the Tribe had a bunch of ups and downs in weather and the games themselves, but they carved out a solid week to further implant their right to 1st place in the AL Central.

They started off on Monday by welcoming back Mike Napoli for the first time with an AL championship ring, but they spoiled the return when they came back from down 7 runs to win big,15-9.

Tuesday was just as close of a game, but the Tribe came out on the wrong end of this one. The Rangers put up an early 2 runs and never looked back as they stole a game back, this one with a final of 2-1.

Wednesday’s Game 3 was a great outing for the Tribe, as their all around game showed up and was on full display in the 5-3 win to go up in the series 2-1.

And Thursday came along and was the best ending to the series the Tribe could have asked for, as they took the game with a 5-1 domination to win the series 3-1.

After facing off with the Rangers at home, the Tribe took off to Detroit to engage in a 3 game stint with the Tigers. Friday’s game got rained out due to massive amounts of rain, so two games took place on Saturday. The Tribe had a tough pitching outing all around in the early afternoon game, which helped the Tigers secure a 7-4 victory in game 1.

But the Tribe would bounce back in Game 2, as they came to play, taking a 4-1 victory to cap off a long Saturday for the club.

And in the week and series finale on Sunday, the Tribe routed the Tigers, in what was their final game before a long awaited off day after 20 straight days of work. The offense tee’d off on Detroit pitchers as they put up 11 runs, and they held off the Tigers comeback on their way to an 11-8 victory.
