For the Indians and their fans, this is nowhere near time to panic, especially given the quality of the starting pitching.
But these home losses in extra innings to the Blue Jays already have gotten old. The Indians squandered another terrific start Saturday afternoon, this time by Ubaldo Jimenez, in a 7-4 loss in 12 innings at Progressive Field.
Jimenez carried a perfect game into the sixth inning and a no-hitter in the seventh. He finished with one hit allowed in seven, but his performance was flushed because of the Tribe's pop-gun offense.
Thursday afternoon, the Indians managed seven hits in a 7-4 defeat that required an Opening Day-record 16 innings to complete. They had four hits and no runs after the second, ensuring Justin Masterson's gem went for naught.
