The State Of Cleveland Indians, Summed Up In Pictures

The Indians continued their record-setting losing streak on Tuesday night with another excruciating loss to the Twins. Like Sunday in Detroit, this one featured a ninth-inning implosion by closer Chris Perez. The Tribe appeared well on their way to breaking the streak, but the Twins stormed back to score six runs in the final three innings.

At this point, I think I'd rather be the Astros.

The Tribe can tie the franchise record losing streak on Wednesday afternoon, but somehow, that streak couldn't have been worse than this stretch of pitching disasters.
