Bats Come Alive as 12 Unanswered Runs Help Tribe Rout Jays; Indians 13, Blue Jays 3

July 21, 2017 |

Twelve unanswered runs in the middle and late innings gave the Cleveland Indians a come-from-behind victory at Progressive Field and a rare win in a series opener as they knocked off the Toronto Blue Jays via a 13-3 final.

The key to Friday night for the Tribe was the revival of the bats with runners in scoring position. In the first six games of the second half, a stretch that had seen the Indians go 1-5 during a rough road trip, the offense had contributed a meager 8-for-54 effort with runners in scoring position. That would all change in the fifth inning against the Blue Jays and starter Marco Estrada. Read More

Tribe to Host Last Place Jays in Need of Finding the Win Column

July 21, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians are stuck in their worst stretch of baseball in quite some time and have seen their lead shrink back down to a half-game in the American League Central Division. They will need to figure out how to get the offense going and will have to do so at Progressive Field this weekend, the same home that has been the site of struggles for the club all season long.

The Indians (48-45) come home to host the Toronto Blue Jays after a disappointing 1-5 west coast trip to start the second half of the regular season schedule. Losers of two straight and six of their last seven, the Tribe will need to put to bed their dismal 21-24 record at home. They are one of just two teams in all of baseball to post a record above the .500 mark for the year while having a sub-.500 mark on their home turf. Read More

Bullpen and Defense Falter Late as Tribe Loses Again; Giants 5, Indians 4

July 19, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians have yet to win an interleague series in 2017. This time, the culprit was a key eighth inning error that led to a big two-run pinch-hit double by Buster Posey off of Bryan Shaw as the Tribe fell again to the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday afternoon, 5-4.

The Indians have been unable to figure out the senior circuit all year long. They fell to 4-13 in head-to-head matchups with the National League and are now 48-45, just a half game in front of the Minnesota Twins in the American League Central Division. Read More

Indians Fall to Giants on Tenth Inning Walk-off Single; Giants 2, Indians 1

July 19, 2017 |

Eduardo Nunez singled through the pulled in Indians infield in the bottom of the tenth inning against Cleveland closer Cody Allen to give the San Francisco Giants a 2-1 walk-off win in extra innings from AT&T Park on Tuesday night.

The Indians’ inability to hit with runners in scoring position was once again an issue as they wasted a quality start from Mike Clevinger, who was stellar on the mound for the Tribe. The Indians blew an early one-run lead with a costly error in the fifth and were unable to mount any support for the pitching staff in the late innings as Giants starter Ty Blach and the San Francisco bullpen kept the Cleveland bats contained for much of the night.

Hillcats’ Carter Claims Carolina League’s Player of the Week

July 18, 2017 |

It has been a season of streaks at the plate for Lynchburg outfielder Jodd Carter. His most recent one, now a season-high nine games and counting, helped earned him the recognition of the Carolina League on Monday when he was named the league’s Player of the Week.

Carter becomes the second position player to earn a Player of the Week nod this season for the Hillcats, joining teammate and All-Star Sam Haggerty. Lynchburg pitchers Triston McKenzie and Shane Bieber have also brought home the hardware on the pitching side of the award this season. Read More

Giants Gift Wrap Indians a Much Needed Win; Indians 5, Giants 3

July 18, 2017 |

When falling upon hard times, sometimes a little luck and a little help from the baseball gods is exactly what you need. A poor display of fundamentals by the usually reliable San Francisco defenders allowed Cleveland to get back into the game and a strong outing from Josh Tomlin led the Indians to a needed 5-3 victory over the Giants in game one of a three-game series.

Tomlin outpitched the Giants’ Matt Moore, who became his own worst enemy to aid in the Indians scoring. The Cleveland starter would make just 79 pitches on the night, but gave the Indians seven and one-third innings of solid work in a quality outing that the Tribe desperately needed from its one-time stopper.

Indians Look to End Rare Long Losing Streak in Interleague Matchup with Giants

July 17, 2017 |

While it may be a meaningless piece of information to some, the Cleveland Indians’ nearly two-year run without a losing streak exceeding three games was pretty remarkable. Just a week short of two years ago, the team began what would be a six-game losing skid in what was the most disappointing season of manager Terry Francona‘s reign in the Tribe dugout. This past weekend, the Indians extended their losing streak to four games after losing the first half finale to Detroit before a three-game sweep by the Oakland Athletics.

The Indians (47-43) will look to end their losing ways as they continue their west coast trip with the rare stop at AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. The two clubs have met for just four series in the past and the Indians have not had much luck against the unfamiliar opposition. Coupled with the bad play out of the All-Star break and the club’s lousy 3-11 record during interleague play this season, the next three days could be a rough go for the Indians. Read More
