Indians notebook: Tribe defense, by the numbers; Bauer excellent again

When your earned-run average just got the snot knocked out of it for the third consecutive start and you're supposedly healthy, you need to come up with something, and you better do it fast. So Danny Salazar went with this: Maybe he's tipping his pitches. The only Indians pitcher in the last six years to start a playoff game played the tipping pitches card April 22, after the offensively challenged Kansas City Royals, who rank 12th in the American League in runs scored, 12th in on-base percentage, 13th in slugging percentage and 15th in home runs, pounded Salazar for five runs on seven hits,...
