Non-support dooms Trevor Bauer to defeat
A lack of run support continued to plague
Bauer wasn't lights-out, but he did manage to twirl his fifth quality start in his last six outings and give up three runs or less in his sixth straight. But he took the loss as the Indians provided him with just one run.
The right-hander yielded three earned runs on six hits, including a solo home run off the bat of Oswaldo Arcia. He walked two and fanned seven.
Bauer, whose record fell to 4-5, will try to even it up next Tuesday against visiting Seattle.
