This day in '48 -- June 24

With the Cleveland Indians struggling, it's nice to take a look back when times were better.

On June 24, 1948, the Indians lost 4-0 to the New York Yankees, even though ace Bob Feller tossed a complete game.

The Indians outhit the Yankees 6 to 5, but three New York home runs doomed the Tribe. New York committed two errors, but Cleveland did not take advantage.

On June 24, 2010, the Indians lost 12-3 to the Philadelphia Phillies in interleague play for their fifth straight loss.

Cleveland got a home run from light-hitting Jason Donald, but 15 hits and two 5-run innings gave Philadelphia an easy win.
