Laffey pitches 6 2/3 strong innings, but Tribe struggles at plate
CLEVELAND -- If 90 percent of the game of baseball really is half-mental, as Yogi Berra once so eloquently stated, it's 100 percent fully mental in the late innings of a close ballgame.It is in that mental domain where the Indians haven't fared particularly well this season. And the mental side especially tripped them up in a 3-2 loss to the Giants on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.
