Series Preview #20: Cleveland Indians (28-31) at Detroit Tigers (31-29)

June 12, 2015 |

Getting back to even just seems to be a glass ceiling that the Cleveland Indians have been unable to punch through. They will look to climb back closer to the .500 mark as they take on a struggling Detroit Tigers team in a three-game series this weekend at Comerica Park.

The Indians slipped up during the week, unable to score when needing it the most. They dropped a 3-2 final on Tuesday night, as two Yan Gomes solo home runs were not enough as the team continues the trend of failing to score for its number one starter. A four-run third on a Kyle Seager grand slam proved to be too much to overcome on Wednesday, as the Mariners defeated the Tribe and Trevor Bauer, 9-3. Seven impressive innings from Shaun Marcum on Thursday, combined with two perfect innings of relief from Zach McAllister and Cody Allen, provided the Indians with a two-hit shutout of the M’s, 6-0.

Series Preview #19: Seattle Mariners (25-32) at Cleveland Indians (27-29)

June 9, 2015 |

Every time the Cleveland Indians seem to get going and approach the .500 mark, they stumble and fall painfully.

Lost in the shuffle of what has turned out to be an exciting playoff run by the Cleveland Cavaliers, the city’s Indians have played much better of late. While this past weekend’s series with the Baltimore Orioles ended with a tough, low-scoring series loss, the team has still been markedly better recently, especially when compared to the first six weeks of the season. This week, they wrap up their brief homestand with three games against the Seattle Mariners, a team who too has failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon them prior to the season.

The Indians (27-29) somehow managed to avoid perennial Cy Young Award contender Felix Hernandez in a four-game series in Seattle that started just two Thursdays ago. Luck is again on their side, as they will avoid the dominant righty once again over the next three games. Read More
