Game 71: Astros 7, Indians 1

Michael Brantley. Ball (not pictured) would later fall into Brantley's glove for an out.



Perhaps I should just make up a boilerplate recap to deal with games like this.

The Indians lost (insert score) to (insert opponent). The Indians fell behind going into the late innings, but (insert starter) gave them a chance to come back, as they were only down (insert deficit) runs. But the bullpen couldn't hold it. (insert front-end reliever) gave up (insert runs) runs in the 6th/7th/8th/9th (pick one) inning, and the Indians had no shot to come back.

Completed for today's game it reads:

The Indians lost 7-1 to Houston. The Indians fell behind going into the late innings, but Derek Lowe gave them a chance to come back, as they were only down 2 runs. But the bullpen couldn't hold it. Nick Hagadone gave up 3 runs in the 6th/7th/8th/9th (pick one) inning, and the Indians had no shot to come back.

OK, there you go.

The Indians scored a grand total of 4 runs against one of the worst pitching staffs in the NL, the front end of the bullpen continues to be awful, and now New York and Baltimore await.
