Tribe Suffers a Night of Missed Opportunities; White Sox 3, Indians 2

June 13, 2018 |

Trevor Bauer struck out 12. The Indians put up 14 hits. And yet despite some big stats on each side of the ledger for Cleveland, they dropped a 3-2 decision to the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

Baseball is a funny game sometimes and Wednesday’s contest lacked a sense of humor as the Indians squandered opportunity after opportunity throughout the day against Chicago starter Dylan Covey. The Indians would wrap up the game in the only way that seemed fitting, stranding two runners in scoring position in the eighth and grounding into a game-ending double play with two on in the ninth.

Shields Stymies Tribe as Plutko Hit with First Loss; White Sox 5, Indians 1

June 12, 2018 |

James Shields got back into the win column for the first time since Opening Day, limiting the Indians to just one run in seven innings of work as the Chicago White Sox handed Cleveland a 5-1 loss on Tuesday.

Shields had been on the losing end of seven straight decisions and had gone 13 games since his only win of the season to date. He had the Indians putting the ball in the air all night long, but unlike the results of his last two starts (when he allowed six home runs), Shields was able to keep the ball in the yard, collecting a personal-best 16 outs on fly outs over the course of his night. The 36-year-old right-hander would get all of the support that he needed within the first five pitches of the game from Indians rookie righty Adam Plutko, who looked to win a fourth straight start in his second season in the big leagues.

Akron’s Calica Selected as Eastern League’s Player of the Week

June 12, 2018 |

Another offensive outburst at the plate from Akron outfielder Andrew Calica earned him the Eastern League’s Player of the Week Award, the league announced on Monday from its home office in Portland, Maine.

Calica was on fire throughout the week in games played between June 4 and June 10, hitting in all six games that he appeared in. Three times he put up two-hit games, he homered in back-to-back games, and he knocked in at least one run in four straight contests. Read More

Carrasco and Tribe Bullpen Combine on Two-Hit Shutout; Indians 4, White Sox 0

June 11, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians kicked off the final leg of their current seven-game road trip with a 4-0 two-hit shutout of the Chicago White Sox on Monday night.

Carlos Carrasco endured a high pitch count early to give the Indians seven quality innings, allowing just four base runners on the night. Three relievers stepped in to record the final six outs to near perfection, sealing the Indians’ third win away from home during this current stretch in Detroit and Chicago. Read More

Mejia Promoted, Marshall Optioned as Tribe Awaits Perez News

June 11, 2018 |

Set to kick off a four-game series in Chicago with the White Sox on Monday night, the Cleveland Indians have added their top prospect to the club to provide, for the time being at least, a little extra protection to the roster.

In the wake of a painful hit-by-pitch suffered by backup catcher Roberto Perez in Sunday’s 9-2 win over the Detroit Tigers, the Indians have recalled catcher/outfielder Francisco Mejia from Triple-A Columbus. To make room on the 25-man roster for the backstop, the Indians optioned reliever Evan Marshall to their top farm affiliate.

In an unrelated move, the Indians also announced via a press release that the organization has released veteran reliever Matt Belisle from his minor league contract so that he could pursue other professional opportunities. Read More

Tribe Returns to Windy City for Four with White Sox

June 11, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians make their second trip to Chicago this season, but just their first to the south side of town as they face the host White Sox.

The Indians (34-29) took two of three in their series over the weekend with the Detroit Tigers, with the first two games decided on late inning home runs before the Tribe bats came alive big in support of Corey Kluber to take the rubber match. The Indians and White Sox met for the first time at the end of May and Cleveland took all three home contests, outscoring the visiting club, 25-10. The Tribe has won two of its last three series in June, but are just 4-4 for the month so far. Read More

Quality Stuff Again from Kluber as Tribe Trounces Tigers; Indians 9, Tigers 2

June 10, 2018 |

Corey Kluber gave the Indians eight innings of quality two-run baseball and he was backed by some big efforts in the Cleveland lineup in a 9-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon.

Kluber’s pursuits of a third Cy Young Award continued on Sunday in the series finale from Comerica Park, where the 32-year-old right-hander handled the Tigers with relative ease, pitching effectively in a balanced attack on the mound. His big effort gave him his tenth win of the season against two losses in 14 starts, taking over the American League lead in victories while matching Washington’s Max Scherzer for the Major League lead. It marked the 14th straight quality start this season for Kluber. Read More

Siebert Kept His Promise With His No-Hitter

June 10, 2018 |

On June 10, 1966, Sonny Siebert etched his name permanently into the record books when he no-hit the Washington Senators at Cleveland Stadium.

His gem was the eleventh no-hitter tossed by a member of the Cleveland franchise, as he joined the likes of Bob Rhoads, Addie Joss (2), Ray Caldwell, Wes Ferrell, Bob Feller (3), Don Black, and Bob Lemon. He ended what might have felt then like a never-ending drought between hitless games – the Indians were less than a month away from the 15th anniversary of Feller’s final no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers on July 1, 1951.

That nearly 15-year span is now the second longest in Indians history, as the team has not thrown a no-hitter since Len Barker’s perfect game in 1981. Read More
