The Tribe only managed to score three runs in the entire series.
Lonnie Chisenhall provided the only offense against the Braves with a pinch-hit solo homer in the eighth inning.
Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez (9-9) showed superb control in his seven innings of work, walking no batters and striking out ten.
However, he gave up three runs on a third-inning home run by Brian McCann. That was all the offense Atlanta needed, as Braves starter Kris Medlen tossed seven shutout innings.
As much as the Indians’ have had trouble filling Progressive Field, the Braves seem to have it worse. They are the best team in baseball (81-52), but they only drew 22,081 fans last night, which is less than half the capacity of Turner Field.
The Indians move on to Detroit to face the Tigers, who are seven games ahead in the race for the American League Central Division title. Zach McAllister (7-7) will start for the Tribe tonight, facing Rick Porcello (10-7) at 7:08 p.m.
Fortunately for the Tribe, the Tigers beat Oakland 7-6, so Cleveland is still four games out of a wild-card spot.
