Tribe Sputters in Road Trip Finale; Pirates 5, Indians 3

| On 06, Jul 2015

The Pirates erased a 3-0 deficit in a hurry, reaching Danny Salazar for five runs and six hits in the fifth that proved to be the difference in a 5-3 Pittsburgh win.

Despite the Pirates winning the final two games of the series (by a combined 6-3 score), the Indians went 5-5 on this 10-game road trip, their longest of the season.

Michael Bourn, Roberto Perez and Michael Brantley drove in runs to stake the Indians to that 3-0 lead, but the Pirates rally, punctuated by Andrew McCutchen’s two-run double, erased the lead.

Over the last seven games of the trip, Tribe pitchers allowed a total of 16 runs (2.29 ERA).

Tonight’s opener vs. Houston features a marquee pitching matchup: Potential AL All-Star starter Dallas Keuchel vs. Carlos Carrasco, who has 10 wins and nearly no-hit the Rays on Wednesday.

W: Gerrit Cole (12-3)

L: Danny Salazar (7-4)

S: Mark Melancon (27)

HR: Pedro Alvarez (12, 5th inning off Salazar 1 on, 0 Out)
