Bauer Beats Up on Tigers for Fourth Time This Season; Indians 4, Tigers 1

June 23, 2018 |

If you haven’t started, it may be time to start considering Trevor Bauer as a legitimate American League All-Star candidate. He made another case for a trip to Washington, D.C., on Saturday, holding the Detroit Tigers to just a run on five hits in six and one-third innings of work in a 4-1 victory from Progressive Field.

For the fourth time this season, Bauer was on the mound against the second place Tigers, and the young Detroit club once again had no answers for the 27-year-old right-hander, who kept the opposition off balance and hacking away. With eleven strikeouts, Bauer notched his seventh double-digit strikeout game of the year and moved into a tie with Boston’s Chris Sale for the most strikeouts in the American League at 140.

Bieber Backed Big by Tribe Bats in Shutout of Tigers; Indians 10, Tigers 0

June 22, 2018 |

Only early rains could slow down Shane Bieber and the Cleveland Indians on Friday night, as they opened the final series of their homestand with a 10-0 shutout of the Detroit Tigers.

A delay of one hour and 41 minutes at the outset was about all that would stand in the way of the Indians winning their fifth straight game as they breezed to a big win over the second place Tigers. Bieber set new personal bests with seven innings of scoreless work and nine strikeouts as he became just the third Indians pitcher since 1908 (Herb Score, Luis Tiant) to open his career with six strikeouts or more in his first three starts.

June 22, 2018 |

With one final series left to play before hitting the road for another long road trip, the Cleveland Indians will welcome the Detroit Tigers back to Progressive Field for the first time since sweeping them in four straight games back in mid-April.

The Indians (40-33) have found their winning ways again, sweeping the Chicago White Sox over the weekend for the second time at home this season. They are 4-2 on their current homestand, after dropping two of three against Minnesota to start play at Progressive Field after a long road trip. The Indians have outscored the Tigers by a 50-27 mark on the year and have posted a +47 mark in run differential this season, the fourth-best difference in the American League behind Houston, Boston, and New York.

Corey Kluber earned his Major League leading eleventh win of the season with seven innings of one-hit baseball and the Indians offense erupted for a dozen runs of support in a 12-0 shutout of the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday afternoon from downtown Cleveland.

The Indians (40-33) swept the White Sox (24-49) for the second time this season while improving to 8-2 on the year against Chicago.

Clevinger Shuts Down Chicago Offense Once Again; Indians 6, White Sox 3

June 19, 2018 |

Mike Clevinger retired 13 straight White Sox hitters after Chicago took an early lead and the Indians offense supported a starter for the second straight game with a half dozen runs as Cleveland held on for a 6-3 win from Progressive Field on Tuesday night.

The Indians (39-33) improved to 7-2 on the year against the rebuilding White Sox (24-48) and the 27-year-old Clevinger has been on the mound for three of those victories.

Making his second straight start against the White Sox and his first since striking out a career-high eleven Chicago hitters in a win last Thursday to earn a series split at Guaranteed Rate Field, Clevinger once again held court on the mound. He worked seven and two-thirds innings, allowing just one solo first inning run on five hits with a pair of walks and ten more strikeouts. In three starts against the Southsiders, Clevinger has surrendered just three earned runs in a span of 21 1/3 innings of work. Read More
