Weren’t you looking forward to this weeklong home stand against the Royals and Twins? I certainly was, and this 2-4 result definitely was not what I was hoping for.

The Indians fell to 28-25 with the loss today, and now enter one of their most difficult stretches of the season leading up to the All-Star Break. Justin Masterson was again mediocre, Jason Kipnis went 0-for-4 and the Tribe managed just three unearned runs against Minnesota lefty Scott Diamond. Stay tuned tomorrow as I’m sure TD will be extra joyous about this one.
