Indians Blame Bullpen Meltdown On Phone Issues

Indians Blame Bullpen Meltdown On Phone Issues

But the Indians fell apart, giving up seven runs to the Reds in the top of the inning thanks, in large part, to a miscommunication between manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Carl Willis.

The mixup was a miserable one for the AL Central leaders. Willis heard "O.T.", which would've meant Otero.

"When I saw OT coming through the gate - and again, it's not that I don't think he can pitch - just not the guy I was expecting", Francona said, via The Athletic's C. Trent Rosecrans. "We had a communication (error)". "That one lands squarely on me". It's a wonder why Willis even thought Francona would be asking for Otero anyway, and why he didn't double-check. Cleveland's bullpen entered the day with the third-highest ERA in baseball at 5.13. "I think we're going to get rewarded for it at some point because he's going to help us a ton". "I think every time he throws, he takes a step in the right direction". We've just got to do it right. Adam Duvall also doubled home two in the ninth, while Jose Peraza and Eugenio Suarez each hit an RBI single. Cincinnati's final seven batters reached base before Scooter Gennett ran into the third out on Suarez's hit. I've got to be responsible for that. In the meantime, I think way back when this first happened, I remember saying I think in the long run it will make guys better and I believe that. Pedro Martinez holds the record with eight in 2002.

"It's been a while now", Francona said.

But he soon toughened up and won lots of three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a Champions League title in 2008. The Portugal global added: "They have been an absolutely wonderful nine years".

At this point, the most important thing is for Miller to pitch in a game.

While he's been out, Cleveland's relievers have struggled as a whole. It was Otero's second blown save this season. The Reds won, 7-4. "So he's trending in a good way, which is really obviously huge for us".

The four-run comeback in the ninth was the Reds' first since June 30, 2006 against the Indians.

Miller's second stint on the disabled list began back on May 26.
