What a weird article though...they're acting like "oh, a bad inning just happened to happen then"...as if that wasn't the culmination of blowing a 3-1 lead in the series.
But being able to explain that stuff away to yourself is, I'm sure, a key component to being successful in sports.
Nothing against Bryan Shaw, who's a really solid pitcher, but, yes, a bad inning did have to happen right there. The Indians had rode Corey Kluber, Andrew Miller, and Cody Allen all the way to Game 7. And they'd already run out of those guys to use. This was bound to happen. Their biggest mistake was in coming back and merely tying the game instead of taking the lead. There was no saving their season. There was no redemption. There was only Bryan Shaw.
