Cleveland took two of three in the series, limiting the Rays jerseys to 15 hits. The Indians jerseys allowed 13 hits in sweeping a four game series at Tropicana Field last June 29 July 2.
“Ugly loss,” Rays jerseys manager Kevin Cash said. “Frustrating game, obviously. We didn’t do too many things well today.”

“You can see why he’s so good, even when he’s not in mid season form, maybe fighting himself a little,” Indians jerseys manager Terry Francona said of Archer. “He still has the ability to cheap mlb jerseys china reach back. One of the better sliders in the game. We stayed after him, got his pitch count up and then once we kind of broke through we kept fighting.”
After cheap Francisco Lindor jersey put the Indians jerseys up 1 0 on a fifth inning RBI single, Archer helped prevent further damage by covering home after a wild pitch and tagging out Davis as he tried to score from third.
Archer worked out of jams in each of the first three innings, holding the Indians jerseys hitless in six at bats with runners in scoring position over the stretch.
Cleveland got out of trouble in the bottom of the fifth thanks to replay. cheap Hank Conger jersey hit a one out double, but was called out after a challenge and replay officials review that showed Lindor applied a tag when Conger briefly left the base.

“I would hope that it’s special for everybody, whether you’re in baseball or not,” Francona said. “I get conflicted a little bit. A tribute to what he went through is off the charts of deserving. I just want to make sure that we don’t get caught up in ever like patting ourselves on the back for celebrating what baseball did, it’s him. To me it’s a reality check, the fact that we have to celebrate something treating people equal. To me that’s one of the most absurd things I’ve ever heard of. So, I guess it’s a good reminder and I hope that day is used maybe as much for that as anything else.”The Indians jerseys return home Friday night to open three game interleague series with the New York Mets jerseys. After having three games postponed and two other starts delayed last week in Cleveland and Chicago due to wintry weather, the forecast calls for mostly clear skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 50’s at game time.
