Series Preview #46: Kansas City Royals (84-58) at Cleveland Indians (70-71)

September 14, 2015 |

Cleveland Indians baseball has been a little bit more fun to take in since the beginning of August. After the page of the calendar flipped to the last full month of summer, the Tribe has gone 22-17. They put together their second-best month of the season with a 16-12 record, and their offense woke up from a yearlong slumber to outscore opponents by a 137-102 edge in 28 games.

September has been very even for the Indians (70-71), who will look to expand on their 6-5 record in the new month while staying within striking distance of the American League Wild Card race. After winning Thursday’s ball game, 7-5, games were postponed on Friday and Saturday due to rain. The Indians split their doubleheader on Sunday, winning the opener 7-2 with seven runs in the final four innings, while they dropped a 9-2 decision in the second game after Trevor Bauer struggled mightily in the fourth and the deficit became too much to overcome.

The Indians have now scored 45 runs in the month and surrendered 46 in eleven games. They swept the Tigers in consecutive series for the first time since 2012. Read More

Tribe Was Talk of Town as Browns Kicked Off ’64 Season

September 13, 2015 |

It was September of 1964 and the Major League Baseball season was winding down. The Cleveland Indians were ten years removed from their last trip to the postseason. Usually, with the Indians fading from the discussion, the conversations amongst sports fanatics in the town could turn to the National Football League’s Cleveland Browns as a source of amusement and attention. After all, the Browns were set to begin their 19th season on September 13th against the Washington Redskins and had already appeared in eleven championship games, winning seven of them.

This year was different. There was trouble brewing in the city and many around the town could sense it. Close observers of what was transpiring at Cleveland Stadium throughout the season could see the little warning signs.

The Indians were in trouble. The potential resolution offered was one in which the loyal denizens of Cleveland were not going to enjoy. Read More
