Tribe Starts Final Road Trip with Win Over the Halos; Indians 6, Angels 3

September 20, 2017 |

While some debate whether the Indians have peaked too early, Cleveland has continued to go to the field and continue to do what it does best – win. It was another big win for the club on Tuesday night, as it opened its final road trip of the regular season with a 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim.

The Indians (94-57) once again made 100 wins a possibility as the team pulled within six wins with eleven to play from becoming just the third squad in franchise history to hit the century mark in victories in a season. If they can accomplish the task, they will join the 1954 and 1995 teams as the only others to do so. The Indians would need to go 6-5 in its remaining games to reach the win plateau.

The Tribe has now won 25 of its last 26 games. Read More

Indians Begin Last Road Trip with Three in Anaheim Against the Angels

September 19, 2017 |

After a well deserved day off, the Cleveland Indians will get back to action across the country as the Los Angeles Angels host the top team in the American League from their home in Anaheim, California.

The Indians (93-57) remain in the driver’s seat in the race to the top record in the AL this season with the hopes of claiming home field advantage throughout the junior circuit half of the postseason. They head into the weekday series with a game and a half lead over the Houston Astros for the best record in the league. They took care of the Angels in three games back in July at Progressive Field, winning on a walk-off Edwin Encarnacion grand slam on July 25 before winning 10-4 and 2-1 decisions to close out the series.

Indians Celebrate AL Central Crown With Series Win Over KC; Indians 3, Royals 2

September 17, 2017 |

Cleveland claimed a second consecutive American League Central Division crown in the late night hours on Saturday night in anticlimactic fashion as the Minnesota Twins fell to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Tribe was able to celebrate with another win in its first game as the division champs behind seven shutout innings from Corey Kluber, a big blast from Edwin Encarnacion, and a bit of a dicey finish from the normally reliable bullpen.

The Indians (93-57) won another series to improve to 24-1 in their last 25 games. They wrapped up their homestand with a 9-1 record to push their season mark at home to 45-30. With the AL Central title in tow, the Tribe will look to fend off the Houston Astros for the best record in the league.

Cleveland wrapped up the season series with Kansas City with a 12-7 record while outscoring the Royals, 90-52. Read More

Ramirez Celebrates 25 Years as Indians Party in Style

September 17, 2017 |

Had the Cleveland Indians continued their record-breaking winning streak through the weekend, they would have gone for win number 25 in a row on Sunday, which just so happened to be the 25th birthday of one of the big reasons the club was able to be so victorious for so long. Unfortunately, that numerical coincidence was not meant to be.

Jose Ramirez was absent from the Indians starting lineup again on Sunday, getting a well deserved rest after appearing in 141 of the team’s 150 games so far this season. Minor aches and pains are common this time of year, and Ramirez rested while tending to a minor hamstring injury. With an off day on Monday, it was the perfect time to give the little extra base hit machine a bit of a breather from his every day hustle and bustle. Read More

Indians Back in the Win Column Behind Four-Run Sixth; Indians 8, Royals 4

September 16, 2017 |

There was no letdown for the Indians on Saturday afternoon in Cleveland’s first game after the end of its 22-game winning streak as the club used a big four-run sixth inning to break open a one-run game and coasted to an 8-4 win over the Kansas City Royals to reduce its magic number to clinch the American League Central Division to one.

Carlos Carrasco had the unfamiliar task of ending a “losing streak” for the Indians, who had not been in the position of playing after a loss since the fourth week of August. While he did not have his best stuff, he gave the Indians a good start and his offense came up with plenty of needed support to earn the win. At 92 wins and 57 losses on the year, the Tribe will need to go 8-5 in its final 13 games to reach the century mark for just the third time in franchise history. Read More
