      Indians CF Michael Bourn trying to turn his season around

      Indians center fielder Michael Bourn was held out of Wednesday's starting lineup against the Brewers. Bourn has struggled for the better part of this season, and manager Terry Francona has continued to do what he can to kick Bourn into gear. "You're trying to win, but you're trying to also get guys going," Francona said on Wednesday, per MLB.com. "I think sometimes as a manager you can play guys just enough to put them in a tough spot. When he does play, I want it to be against guys I think he's had success against. All you can do is do the best you can. Kind of like players, I do the best I can. We want so bad for the guys to do well. He's just going through a tough time. It's been frustrating. I know he's [frustrated], too. "I know he's frustrated. He cares a lot. It's just been hard because we're not hitting as a team a lot to begin with, and then when you've got a guy scuffling like that, it just kind of becomes a little more glaring." Bourn is batting just .225 this year. He went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss, and has just two multi-hit games over the last month. But for his part, Bourn continues to battle through the struggles. "I know that me, myself, I haven't had a good season up to this point," Bourn said on Tuesday night. "But I'm not going to stop playing. I'm going to keep on scrapping. I know the team leans on me and I'll just keep going until they say we've got to go home."
