The Indians could not capitalize on runners in scoring position and fell on Tuesday night to the Minnesota Twins, 4-3. The Tribe went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position and had eight players left on base overall.
The Twins, on the other hand, scored all of their runs off Trevor Bauer in the top of the 4th inning with two outs and nobody on.
The Indians found themselves up 2-0 heading into the top of the fourth after Lonnie Chisenhall grounded out to shortstop plating Carlos Santana. In the same inning, Yan Gomes hit a sacrifice fly to right sending Jason Kipnis home.
Things fell apart when Kennys Vargas drilled a double to right center scoring Joe Mauer. To top it off, Trevor Plouffe recorded an RBI single, followed by the dagger that was a two-run home run courtesy of Oswaldo Arcia.
The Twins would not score after the fourth, but four runs would be enough to seal the game.
A Gomes RBI single in the 8th brought the Tribe one run closer, but they could not complete the rally.
Bauer recorded the loss and is now 5-8 on the season.
