The Indians play spoilers in front of 67,468 fans at Cleveland Stadium as pitchers Al Smith and Jim Bagby Jr. end the 56-game hitting streak of New York Yankees slugger Joe DiMaggio. It would not be enough to get the win, however, as the Bronx Bombers claim the victory, 4-3. Read More

Indians Fall Behind Big Early on Way to Fourth Straight Loss; A’s 7, Indians 3

July 16, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians have entered into unfamiliar territory, and it was not just their once-a-year visit to one of the worst stadiums in use in Major League Baseball today in the Oakland Coliseum. The team’s losing streak hit four straight as Trevor Bauer was only able to retire two batters in a four-run first inning by the A’s as Oakland went on to complete the sweep over Cleveland with a 7-3 win.

The return of manager Terry Francona to the Indians dugout on Friday has not sparked new energy from the Tribe as they dropped their third straight to start the second half and fourth in a row overall in their longest losing skid since losing six straight from July 23-28, 2015. Read More

WOW! Manny Ramirez’s majestic blast off of A’s star closer Dennis Eckersley deep into the bleachers in left field sends the Indians home with a come-from-behind victory and a sweep over Oakland, 5-4. Read More

Davis’ Walk-off Shot Wins it for Athletics; Athletics 5, Indians 3

July 16, 2017 |

The second half has not started the way that the Cleveland Indians would have scripted.

One night after being limited to four hits in a 5-0 shutout by the Oakland Athletics, Corey Kluber allowed a game-tying solo blast in the eighth inning and Bryan Shaw gave up the game-winning two-run shot to Khris Davis in the bottom of the ninth as the A’s celebrated their seventh walk-off win in a 5-3 victory on Saturday night.

The Indians (47-42) have now opened the second half by losing games started by the top two pitchers in their rotation. Read More

Tribe Prospects Perform Well in this Week’s All-Star Game Losses

July 15, 2017 |

Six members total between the Akron RubberDucks and Columbus Clippers earned the honor of playing in their respective league’s All-Star Games this week and several took advantage of the opportunity on a big stage to shine.

The International League faced off with the Pacific Coast League on Wednesday night from Tacoma, Washington. A four-run fourth inning by the PCL All-Stars would prove to be too much for the IL squad to overcome in a 6-4 contest. Columbus’ Richie Shaffer was one of the players to best utilize his time as his performance for the losing squad earned him the league’s All-Star Game MVP award.

Tribe Falls Flat in Four-Hit Shutout by A’s; A’s 5, Indians 0

July 15, 2017 |

It was a rare rough road start for Carlos Carrasco and the bats of his Cleveland Indians teammates could not kick off the All-Star break rust against Sonny Gray, who led the Oakland Athletics to a 5-0 four-hit shutout late Friday night.

Gray had the daunting task of taking the mound knowing that each start could be the last in the only home that he has known in his professional career. Rumored to be one of the more heavily pursued starting pitchers potentially on the trade block, now with Chicago’s Jose Quintana off of the market, the 27-year-old right-hander had to deal with rumors of his start being scratched less than an hour before first pitch. The speculation swirled through social media and led to him having to put his cell phone away due to the flood of text messages that he received less than an hour before taking the mound from those wondering if there was validity to his participation in “Hug Watch 2017”.

All Gray did from there was pitch like the highly coveted player that interested teams envisioned him to be. Read More

Tribe Starts West Coast Trip with Three in Oakland

July 14, 2017 |

Baseball is back. Tito is back. Heck, even Tyler Naquin is back.

After two long days without any Major League Baseball action (with exception of the trade of Jose Quintana across the sprawling city limits of Chicago), the Cleveland Indians are back in action as they start a Bay Area road trip on Friday night with three games with the Oakland Athletics.

The Indians (47-40) went into the All-Star break in the spot that they belong, leading the American League Central Division. While they have been able to hold off the hard charging Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals in recent weeks, the true test will come down the stretch in the second half. A playoff tested Indians team would presumably have the advantage over a young Twins club with glaring deficits in its starting rotation, but the Royals still could roll the dice and go in on one last hurrah before dealing with a financial crisis in free agency following the season.

A violent home plate collision between Cleveland Indians catcher Ray Fosse and Cincinnati Reds star Pete Rose becomes the story of the day as Rose’s run in the 12th inning sends the National League All-Star team home victorious with a 5-4 walk-off win over the American League at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati.

Tribe’s Top Farm Clubs Prepare for All-Star Games on Wednesday

July 12, 2017 |

All-Star games are the theme of the week as one day after Major League Baseball hosted its annual Midsummer Classic and several days after top prospects united for the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game on Sunday, both the International League and the Eastern League will play their respective games on Wednesday night.

The Indians’ top farm affiliate, the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, have just two representatives in Tacoma, Washington, for the Triple-A All-Star Game between the best of the International League and the Pacific Coast League. Richie Shaffer received the early invitation through voting, but middle infielder Eric Stamets was also asked to participate as a reserve. Read More
