Hardy back in the line-up, and Davis continuing to bat second.

"Friday night, they will face Indians right-hander Corey Kluber, who is 13-6 with a 2.46 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 171 2/3 innings this season. He’s 4-0 with a 0.68 ERA over his last five starts (45 strikeouts in 40 innings), holding opponents to a .158 batting average.

On May 24, he tossed seven shutout innings against the Orioles, allowing just seven baserunners (five hits, two walks) while striking out nine.

This Kluber sounds like a good pitcher. Lotta Ks too, not looking good for the Mudville 9 on paper.

Progressive Field... What a shame, Jacob's Field had a much nicer ring to it.

Nick got a hold of that one. Can't believe the RF actually caught it, looked like the ball had gotten the best of him.   Thats probably a HR at some stadiums including Camden

The thing about this O's team is that they can beat you 1-0.

Another K for Davis. Getting old.

 

No way can he continue to get penciled into the #2 slot.

Again, Davis can't even get a run in.

I think this is their last attempt at getting him going.

Agree. I thought Hardy would've been the better guy to have in the #2 slot.  Really needed at least one run there, looking like they'll be hard to come by tonight.

This is why Cleveland has scored more than we have. Speed. You put more guys in scoring position during the course of a game.

I wish we had just a little speed.

Davis better figure things out or he might find himself teammates with Willy Mo Pena over in Asia.

That might be part of it but Cleveland also has 100 more walks and only 15 fewer hits.  Those 85 extra baserunners gives them more chances to score.  And they've only managed to outscore the O's by a handful of runs.  Instead of speed, imagine where the O's would be if they had 100 more walks than they do.

I agree. I didn't mean to imply that that was the only reason as I've said many times before that our weaknesses are both speed and plate discipline.

I wonder though what the trade off is because we lead the league in homers. Do we want to walk more and hit fewer homers? That's a real good debate.

I want to see "money ball" vs. the long ball to settle this debate in this year's ALCS.
