Baltimore Orioles pound Lowe, Indians, 10-2


Currently, at the end of July, the Cleveland Indians look more like pretenders, than contenders in the American League Central Division.

The Tribe has been sputtering since June 23. The Indians are 10-14 and has been passed up by the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers in the up-for-grabs division. The Indians are three games behind the White Sox.

With Derek Lowe on the mound last night, Cleveland did not fare well as a contender. Lowe gave up nine runs in three-plus innings of their 10-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in front of a disappointed crowd of 33,954 at Progressive Field.

The Orioles through the first five innings, pounded the baseball for five doubles, two home runs and led 9-1.

Former Indians’ star Jim Thome had a double, homer and single in going 3 for 5. The lefty-swinging slugger hit a high, deep homer to right for the 610th of his career, tying Sammy Sosa for seventh all-time on the MLB home run list.
