5-game win streak snapped by shutout

What better way to bring momentum to a screeching halt than with a shutout?

The Tribe’s longest win streak of the season was snapped on Friday by Gio Gonzalez and the Oakland A’s. It was the 6th time this season they’ve been shutout.

It was also 5th time since 2000 that they’ve snapped a five-game win streak with a shutout, which sounds like a shockingly high number.

What makes it even more disappointing is the fact that it was Gio Gonzalez that shut the Tribe down. No disrespect to Gonzalez, but he doesn’t exactly fit with the list of names to the right. He’s having a fine season, but has struggled on the road and the Indians failed to take advantage of that weakness by jumping on him early. For the second straight game they went hit-less through the first three innings.
