The Cleveland Indians continued struggling on Tuesday night when they lost their eleventh straight game to the Minnesota Twins. The Tribe couldn't get out of their own way as fielding errors by Jason Kipnis and Casey Kotchman gave the Twins an opportunity to rally for the win.
The Indians continued finding ways to give up runs which have been mounting at a historic rate during the losing streak. Jordan Bastian breaks down how the latest stretch of futility stacks up against past Cleveland teams.
Indians' 95 runs allowed in past 11 are most over any 11-game stretch for Cleveland since giving up 97 RA in 11 games from Aug. 23-30, 1938.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) August 8, 2012
For the record, that 1938 team went 4-7 through that eleven-game stretch on their way to an 86-66 record which was good for third place in the American League.
