CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Guardians manager Terry Francona admitted Tuesday that small mistakes can get magnified with his team playing so many one-run games.

Francona spoke before Tuesday’s game 2 against Chicago; Cleveland won the series opener 3-0 Monday.

The Guardians rank 28th in MLB in both batting average and runs scored. They’re also dead last in the majors in homers.

Francona also shot down the notion of a 6-man pitching rotation, saying that would leave him with just a 7-man bullpen which “would be hard” in the dog days of summer.

Cleveland is 21-26, 3.5 games back of first-place Minnesota in the A.L. Central.
