Well, the Tribe's six game winning streak had to come to an end sometime, and there definitely positives to take from the loss that finally did it.
1) Corey Kluber has put together multiple decent starts in a row now and increasingly looks like a viable member of the rotation, which is not something I was expecting at the start of the year. Three earned on five hits in 5 2/3 isn't spectacular, but it is keeping your team in the game.
2) The offense may not have gotten the big hit yesterday, but Carlos Santana and Ryan Raburn don't look like they're cooling off any time soon. They came up with two hits apiece (including a Santana homer in the 9th) to keep both of their batting averages above .365.
3) Who knows what's going on with Vinnie Pestano, but at least his temporary replacement in the 'pen, Scott Barnes, looked good for two innings yesterday. It's a very strange feeling to trust the middle relief to keep us in a game.
Now for four games against the A's, who are a very good team but I get the feeling are beateable all the same. Especially for these guys!
