Indians allow 7 runs in 9th, lose to Reds

O.P.? O.T.? The Indians and their bullpen are not O.K

The Indians manager and pitching coach suffered a communication breakdown that would have been humorous had it not essentially cost Cleveland the game against the Cincinnati Reds. Willis heard "O.T.", which would've meant Otero.

With two outs and the bases loaded, Indians manager Terry Francona wanted a new reliever to close it out.

"When I saw OT coming through the gate, it was not the guy I was expecting", Francona told reporters, per ESPN. "I know Carl's beating himself up right now, but that one lands on me". He noted that Votto was 0 of 4 in his career against Otero, but said he should have asked Francona for clarification.

Bauer was brilliant, striking out 12 over eight scoreless innings in his first appearance since being named to the All-Star team for the first time.

"I think I was a little pumped up in the beginning, that's just normal", Romano said.

He gave up a go-ahead three-run double from Joey Votto during a seven-run ninth inning after the bullpen wasted a gem from Trevor Bauer in the loss. "I've got to be responsible for that". "Not that (Otero) can't get the job done; just wasn't the right match-up". The Reds were up 7-4, that would hold through the bottom of the ninth and Cincinnati won. Adam Duvall also doubled home two in the ninth, while Jose Peraza and Eugenio Suarez each hit an RBI single.

"Bauer was a handful for us and we ended up scoring all of our runs when he exited the game", Votto said.

The Reds entered the ninth inning trailing 4-0, facing Cody Allen in a non-save situation.

Two outs happened - two outs!

The Reds go 41-51 this year after the win at Progressive Field while the Indians fall to 49-41.
