Bradley Jr. Homer in Tenth Gives BoSox Win in Extras; Red Sox 7, Indians 6

August 13, 2019 |

The Indians rallied back from a 6-1 deficit, but fell in extras as the Red Sox’s Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in the go-ahead run with a solo homer in the top of the tenth inning against Cleveland’s Nick Wittgren as Boston pulled out a 7-6 victory.

It was a tough way for things to end for the Tribe after crawling all the way back out of a five-run hole felt more than midway through the contest in a matchup against the struggling Chris Sale. He was backed by some early run support against Mike Clevinger, who was unable to make it through five innings. Read More

A recently acquired prospect plays the hero for the Tribe as Zach Walters hits a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Indians defeat the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, 3-2, in the first game of a doubleheader. Read More

Santana Saves Hand Again, Delivers Walk-Off Solo Shot; Indians 6, Red Sox 5

August 13, 2019 |

While things have not been going so great for All-Star closer Brad Hand the last couple of days, the same cannot be said about his Midsummer Classic and Cleveland teammate Carlos Santana, as the Indians first baseman just cleared the 19-foot wall in left-center field to start the bottom of the ninth to give the Tribe a 6-5 walk-off win over the Boston Red Sox.

The Indians held a 5-1 lead after three innings against Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez, but Boston chipped into that advantage with a pair of runs in the fourth, one in the seventh, and a painful fifth run in the top of the ninth as Hand blew a save for the second straight day. As was the case on Sunday afternoon in the Indians’ 7-3 win over the Minnesota Twins, Santana picked up his AL and Indians roster member by hitting a timely home run as Cleveland celebrated his milestone blast with a well-deserved on-field gathering at home plate.

Santana Slam Sends Tribe to Victory in Ten; Indians 7, Twins 3

August 11, 2019 |

Tribe closer Brad Hand gave up a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth to allow the Twins to tie the game at three, but Carlos Santana sent the Indians to a victory as he hit a grand slam in the top of the tenth to give Cleveland a 7-3 win over Minnesota on Sunday.

In the biggest series of the year for the Indians to date, the club showed up big in the Twin Cities and stole three wins in a four-game series to tie the Twins for the top spot in the American League Central for the second time in the last three days. They needed some late inning heroics, capped by a dynamite defensive play to avoid a dramatic loss in the bottom of the ninth before Santana crushed the backbreaker in the next half inning to send Cleveland home with an impressive series win from Minnesota.

In a disappointing season for the Tribe, they still had their surprise moments as they rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth inning to steal a 4-3 win from the Kansas City Royals in walk-off fashion. Read More

Tribe Streak Ends on Repeated Missed Opportunities; Twins 4, Indians 1

August 11, 2019 |

Cleveland’s four-game winning streak and brief return to the top spot in the American League Central came to an end on Saturday as Jake Odorizzi and the Minnesota bullpen pitched around consistent base traffic in a 4-1 Twins win.

The Minnesota All-Star Odorizzi played the stopper again after four subpar starting pitching performances from the men around him in the Twins starting rotation this week. He was hardly at his sharpest, allowing five hits and four walks in five and two-thirds innings, but he did the most important aspect of his job, keeping the Indians from crossing home plate safely.

Bieber Brings Tribe Back to Top of the AL Central; Indians 6, Twins 2

August 9, 2019 |

Shane Bieber pitched another gem for the Indians in a playoff atmosphere and the Cleveland bats beat up on Minnesota starting pitching again as the Tribe rolled to a 6-2 win on Friday night.

A big needed victory for the Indians moved the club to 70-46, matching the Twins for the top record in the American League Central for the first time since April 26. In doing so, they officially trimmed the deficit in the division that once sat at 11.5 games all the way to zero, with two games remaining in the four-game set from Target Field this weekend. The Indians have won four in a row and seven of their last eight games, while the Twins have dropped four straight. The Tribe is now 40-16 since sitting at the .500 mark on June 4, when they started their first home series of the season against the Twins. Read More

Clevinger Shines, Bullpen Holds on for Dear Life Late; Indians 7, Twins 5

August 8, 2019 |

The final two innings gave the Indians a pretty significant scare, but Cleveland came away with a 7-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins in game one of four from Target Field on Thursday night.

Clevinger contained the dangerous and pesky Twins lineup over seven innings, giving up just five base runners in a quality start (three hits, one walk, one hit batter). He allowed a pair of runs in the four inning on a pair of RBI singles, but he was already blessed with a 4-0 lead at that point as the Indians had attacked the ineffective and wild Twins starter Kyle Gibson.
