The Indians dropped their third straight game on Saturday night in front of the second largest crowd (36,247) this season at Progressive Field. Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a solo homer but the Tribe bats would go silent after that. Zach McAllister pitched well for the Indians, getting into the eighth inning but the offense was nowhere to be found. Baltimore AB R H RBI HR BB K SB LOB Season Avg N.
