By now most people know Indians Closer Chris Perez didn’t have his best outing in Detroit yesterday. Perez came into the Indians game when the Tribe had a 3 run lead over the Tigers in the tenth inning. Perez needed to earn his 30th save to get the Indians off of a 8 game losing streak. It didn’t happen the way Tribe fans would have liked. Perez gave up 5 runs to the Tigers in the tenth that included a two run blast by one of the best hitters in clutch situations in all of baseball.
