Replay Leads to Two-Run Reds Ninth and Allen’s First Blown Save; Reds 4, Indians 3

May 24, 2017 |

Cleveland had an apparent victory snatched away by a replay review in the ninth, creating an opportunity for Cincinnati’s Zack Cozart to drive in two runs with two outs off of Cody Allen and Reds closer Raisel Iglesias stranded the tying and winning runs on base in the bottom of the frame as the visitors held on for a 4-3 win over the Indians on Wednesday night.

The Indians took a 3-2 lead into the ninth, courtesy of a good pitching performance from Trevor Bauer and the bullpen three RBI from Carlos Santana, but Allen once again made another May save opportunity an adventure on the mound. Read More

Indians and Reds Continue Home-and-Home Series from Cleveland

May 24, 2017 |

After each club earned a win in Cincinnati to open their interleague home-and-home series (or maybe, a road-and-road series for the pessimist in the crowd), the Reds and the Indians will wrap up the four-game series with two games from Progressive Field on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

The Reds (21-24) won Monday’s series opener from Great American Ball Park with solo runs in the first two innings before a three-run seventh, aided by a throwing error by pitcher Josh Tomlin and a two-run single surrendered by Dan Otero with two outs to open up the game.

Encarnacion Reveals Fans’ Scars from Bad Indians Free Agent Experiences

May 24, 2017 | 1

Last year, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers exorcised 52 years of demons, including the Fumble, the Drive, Jose Mesa’s blown save and Joel Skinner stopping Kenny Lofton at third base.

This year, the Indians are trying to exorcise some of their own – and not the ones you might think. Read More

Tribe Hits Four Homers and Clings to Win in Cincy; Indians 8, Reds 7

May 23, 2017 |

While Cleveland sports fans were riding a roller coaster of a game between the NBA’s Cavaliers and Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Indians were playing out an up and down game against the Reds, one in which came down to an 8-7 finale in favor of the Tribe in the final contest of the Cincinnati portion of the home-and-home series.

The Indians hit four home runs off of rookie left-hander Amir Garrett, but the game still came down to the wire in the bottom of the ninth, when closer Cody Allen put the tying and winning runs on base but escaped the threat to save his franchise-record 13th straight game to start the season.

Cleveland jumped out to an early lead with one out in the first inning against Garrett as Francisco Lindor would hit his team-leading tenth home run of the season. The solo shot to left put the Indians on top, 1-0, but the lead would be just temporary. Read More

Hitting Streaks, Quality Pitching, Walk-offs, and More in Hillcats Chatter

May 23, 2017 |

After a couple of tough patches earlier in the month, the Lynchburg Hillcats have found that winning recipe in Carolina League play.

Winners of six of their last seven contests, the Indians’ High-A affiliate have charged back into the race in the Carolina League’s Northern Division. At 24-19, they trail the rival Salem Red Sox by three and a half games in the standings.

The Hillcats will play eleven of their next 15 games on the road, which could help them gain even more ground in the division. The ‘Cats have had a tough time at City Stadium this season, going just 11-13 on their home field, but are 13-6 on the road, a mark trailing only Salem’s 14-6 road record for best in High-A.

Tribe Offense Falls Flat Against Reds’ Feldman; Red 5, Indians 1

May 22, 2017 |

Cincinnati’s Scott Feldman limited Cleveland to just one run over six innings of work on Monday night as the Reds opened their annual interleague series against the Indians with a 5-1 win.

The Indians (23-20), fresh off of a three-game sweep of the Majors’ winningest team in the Houston Astros, could not bring the same level of success against their intrastate rival in the opener of a four-game home-and-home series that will move from Great American Ball Park to Progressive Field later on this week.

Feldman matched up with Josh Tomlin, who kept the game close early for the Indians before a three-run seventh inning proved to be far too much to overcome on the night. Read More

Indians and Reds Square Off in Queen City as Battle of Ohio Begins

May 22, 2017 |

It’s that time of year again that the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds renew their forced interleague rivalry as Ohio clubs playing at opposite ends of the state. The two teams will start a four-game series from Great American Ball Park, playing twice there before the series relocates to Progressive Field for the final two contests on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

The Indians (23-19) have had their problems at home this season, but those issues have extended to the road far less. They are one of just three teams (see also: Houston, Colorado) to win 15 games away from home already this season. Cleveland comes into this home-and-home series for the Ohio Cup one game up on Minnesota in the wins column, but also one game worse in the losses column, putting the Indians two-thousandths of a point behind the Twins for the top spot in the American League Central Division.
