Cleveland Indians lose final game
The Indians are trying to gain ground on the Texas Rangers, who are just ahead of the Indians by ½ game, and the Tampa Bay Rays, who are 1 game in front of Cleveland. The Rangers are carrying around a record of 81-68 and the Rays are currently sitting pretty at 82-67.
They never gave up hope. Although many fans, journalists and radio announcers did. They kept their heads about themselves, going 15-5 over the next 20 games, saving face and hopefully their season.
