Indians offense still struggles in 2-0 loss

From the Associated Press

CLEVELAND -- A little over a month into the season and Cleveland Manager Eric Wedge is searching for answers as the Indians struggle to score runs.

Sunday's 2-0 loss to Kansas City provided even more frustration for Wedge. Gil Meche pitched seven shutout innings and a throwing error by third baseman Casey Blake broke a scoreless tie in the fifth.

Cleveland, which was limited to four hits, didn't advance a runner to third base and got only one runner to second. After the game, Wedge hinted some roster changes might be ahead. The Indians have scored three runs or fewer 16 times in 31 games.

"We're in the middle of evaluating everything," he said. "We're looking at everything and we're going to do whatever we possibly can do to make whatever adjustments we need to make."

Wedge has been particularly annoyed that his hitters continue to have poor at-bats game after game.

"We've got guys who have been here three, four or five years," he said. "They're the ones that have to lead us through this."
