The Indians have lost four in a row–the 4th time this season they’ve lost at least four games in a row. The longest losing streak of the season was six games. Each time, they seem to come back with a big winning streak (as Ryan noted a couple of days ago). This afternoon in Boston, lefty TJ House (0-1, 5.24) takes the mound for the Tribe against right-hander Jake Peavy (1-4, 4.76). The last time TJ House started was Monday, when he pitched only 3.1 innings and allowed 6 runs (5 earned). Of course, that was the game in which the Indians scored 17 runs, Lonnie Chisenhall went 5-5 with 3 homers and 9 RBI, and all was well with the world. It seems like a million years ago, doesn’t it?
