CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Indians being an important four game series against the Tampa Bay Rays in Saint Petersburg, Florida on Monday night after losing two out of three to the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend.
The tribe and Rays split their four game series at Progressive Field heading into the All-Star break.
The Indians will enter the series struggling on offense after being shut out 3-0 by the Blue Jays on Sunday. The tribe pitching staff has allowed 14 runs the last two games as well.
Is this an indication that the Indians need to make a trade for a starting pitcher more important than a right handed bat?
WTAM 1100 Indians beat reporter Nick Camino shares his thought on that and recaps the disappointing weekend in Toronto on the July 15, 2012 edition of the Ford Sports Sunday.
