Indians, Reds struggle as both teams get swept

It was not a good weekend for the fans of either Ohio MLB team. Both the Detroit Tigers and the Philadelphia Phillies completed a 3-game series sweep over the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds to end a weekend of miserable weather and miserable baseball in the state of Ohio. For the Indians, Sunday's loss marked their sixth straight after the Royals had swept the Indians in KC earlier in the week. While the Reds were coming off a series where they beat the Nationals in two of three games, they needed a dramatic HR from Ken Griffey, Jr. to salvage the rubber match on Thursday in Cincinnati.

Looking ahead, the Tribe faces the Kansas City Royals in a 4-game series in Cleveland starting on Monday. The Royals are 5-1 against the Indians on the season but 5-24 against the rest of the American League. Meanwhile, the Reds will look to end their 3-game slide as they head to Pittsburgh on Tuesday for three games before a trip to Detroit to face the Tigers in interleague play.
