Did The Tribe Win Last Night? No. No, no, no.
Brady Singer came within four outs of firing Major League Baseball’s second no-hitter of the season in his ninth career start and the Kansas City offense lit up Cleveland pitching as the Royals took home a series win with an 11-1 victory over the Indians on Thursday.
Cleveland’s 20-game winning streak over Detroit and six-game winning streak in general both came to a sudden halt on Friday night as the Tigers pummeled Adam Plutko for seven runs in a disastrous fourth inning as the Indians blew a five-run lead on the way to a 10-5 loss.
In a sudden and dramatic blink of an eye, the Indians’ substantial five-run lead evaporated on Friday as the Tigers erupted in a cathartic seven-run fourth inning to end their woes against Cleveland and turn the scales in their favor, capped by the first Major League home run, a grand slam, by rookie Isaac Paredes.
