September 8, 2017 |

With a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles, the Cleveland Indians clinch the American League Central Division crown.

Kluber Leads Tribe to Franchise Record 15th Straight Win; Indians 11, White Sox 2

September 7, 2017 |

Did the Tribe win last night? Of course they did.

The Cleveland Indians completed a perfect 11-0 road trip by winning a franchise-record 15th straight game with a lopsided 11-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox to sweep a second straight four-game series to accomplish a feat never done in their 117-year history.

Corey Kluber had the starting nod, giving the Indians a favorable edge to break a record barely a year old. Putting the odds even more in the favor of the visiting Cleveland club was the fact that Chicago’s probable left-hander, Carlos Rodon, was scratched mere minutes before first pitch, forcing the White Sox to turn to veteran Mike Pelfrey, who had already worked two and one-third innings in relief just two nights prior. Pelfrey’s recent use may have shown quickly on the mound as the Indians raced out to a quick first inning lead and never looked back. Read More

Indians Match Club’s Win Record Behind Carrasco’s Gem; Indians 5, White Sox 1

September 6, 2017 |

For the second season in a row, the Cleveland Indians have won 14 straight games, sealing the deal with a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

It was a historic effort for the Tribe, which matched the club’s franchise record just one season after breaking a 75-year-old mark for consecutive wins in a row. Carlos Carrasco made it look easy, as he faced one batter over the minimum in scattering three hits and just one run while throwing his first complete game of the season. Read More

Tribe Wins MLB-Best 13th Game in a Row; Indians 9, White Sox 4

September 5, 2017 |

The game may have started chaotic from Guaranteed Rate Field on Tuesday night, but things settled into a far more normal outcome as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Chicago White Sox by a 9-4 final.

The Indians (82-56) extended their MLB-best winning streak to 13 straight games and moved to 9-0 on their current eleven-game road trip. The success on the road also moved the team to 46-27 on the year away from Progressive Field, giving the team its most road wins since the club went 46-26 in the strike-shortened 1995 season. Three championship contending clubs in franchise history remain on the all-time road wins list above them currently, including the 52-win 1954 squad, the 49-win 1948 team, and the 47-win first-time champions in 1920.

During their 13-game streak, Cleveland has outscored its competition, 93-25. Read More

Kluber Closing the Gap on Sale for AL’s Top Pitching Honor

September 5, 2017 |

For those keeping track at home, it is now Corey Kluber two, Chris Sale zero, when it comes to taking home the American League’s monthly pitching honors.

Kluber was named on Sunday as the AL’s Pitcher of the Month for the second time this season, putting his August work on par with his efforts back in June when he won the award for the first time this season and the fourth time in his career.

His stats did not lie. He was 5-1 in the month with a 1.96 ERA and a 0.63 WHIP while limiting opposing batters to a .146 batting average. Read More

Big Effort from Bauer Again as Tribe Wins Twelfth Straight; Indians 5, White Sox 3

September 4, 2017 |

Baseball sure is fun when you’re on the winning side of the ledger.

For the Cleveland Indians, it’s been nearly two straight weeks of good times. And while there was a holiday to celebrate Monday in Labor Day, it was no off day for the Tribe as they won their 12th straight ball game with a 5-3 win over the White Sox from Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.

The Indians (81-56) had some timely hitting, some good quality starting pitching from Trevor Bauer, and a bit of a tight rope act from the bullpen, but the club secured yet another win in formally knocking the White Sox (54-82) out of playoff contention while guaranteeing the south side club a losing season. Cleveland, meanwhile, has locked in a fifth straight winning season. Read More

Indians Look to Add to Big Winning Streak with Four-Game Set in Windy City

September 4, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians appear to be in postseason form, which does not bode well for the last place Chicago White Sox as the Tribe visits Guaranteed Rate Field for four games this week.

The Indians (80-56) have won a season-high eleven straight games and have started their eleven-game road trip with a 7-0 start. A three-game sweep of the New York Yankees in the Bronx was followed by the Indians’ first ever four-game sweep of the Tigers in Detroit. The hot stretch has helped Cleveland open up a nine-game lead in the American League Central over the Minnesota Twins. The Tribe’s magic number has been reduced to 18 in the process. In addition to their eleven-game winning streak, the Indians have won 16 of their last 20 and 22 of their last 30. Read More
