Kluber to Skip All-Star Game, Tampa’s Snell to Replace Him on Roster

July 13, 2018 |

After another rocky start on Thursday night, Corey Kluber is prioritizing his health and being available for the Tribe through the second half of the season and on into October baseball.

On Friday afternoon, Major League Baseball announced that Kluber has decided to skip his participation in next week’s 89th All-Star Game from Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. He has been replaced on the American League’s roster by Tampa Bay starting pitcher Blake Snell. Read More

Yankees Knock Off Tribe With Late Inning Rallies; Yankees 7, Indians 4

July 12, 2018 |

What on paper appeared to be an impressive pitching duel between Cleveland’s Corey Kluber and New York’s Luis Severino instead served as a display of offense as the Yankees rallied for three late inning runs to break a 4-4 tie and held on for a 7-4 win on Thursday night from Progressive Field.

A matchup of two of the top three finishers in the American League Cy Young voting a season ago looked nothing like it as both offenses provided early run support for their respective right-handers. While Severino would exit midway through the contest after the Indians tied the game at four against him, it would be damage done against Kluber in his final inning of work in the eighth that would serve as the difference on the night.

Yankees Make First Trip to Progressive Field Since ALDS Upset

July 12, 2018 |

The New York Yankees storm into Cleveland for the first time since last October for a four-game series with the Indians to close out the first half of the 2018 regular season schedule.

The Battle of Ohio did not go in the favor of the Indians (50-41), but if nothing else, they ended the series with a very loud bang with a 19-hit, 19-run onslaught to avoid a sweep by the Cincinnati Reds. Such has been the case for the Indians during their homestand, as they have had two big bursts of offense wrapped around four disappointing losses to the A’s and Reds. The Yankees picked up a three-game sweep of the two clubs’ earlier series in May, winning the bookend games in walk-off fashion while outscoring the Indians, 19-12. They will need to slow down the top scoring home club in baseball, as the Indians have scored 282 runs in 46 home dates this year. Read More

Tribe Avoids Communication and Bullpen Issues in Reds Rout; Indians 19, Reds 4

July 11, 2018 |

One night after an embarrassing defeat aided by a communications breakdown by manager Terry Francona and his coaching staff, the Cleveland Indians avoided a similar scenario by running up 19 runs on 19 hits in a 19-4 rout of the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.

The Tribe avoided a series sweep at the hands of the last place Reds from Progressive Field and earned what should have been a series clinching victory, had it not been for the disastrous events of the night before. In the final game of the penultimate series of the first half of the season, the Indians (50-41) salvaged a victory, ending a four-game losing skid while finally notching their 50th win of the campaign. The Indians got good starting pitching from starter Carlos Carrasco, but they would not need much help from him or the bullpen on Wednesday as the bats came alive and battered the young Reds pitching staff.

Babe Ruth Made his Debut Against the Indians 104 Years Ago Today

July 11, 2018 |

One hundred and four years ago today, the Indians got the first view of one of the greatest players of all time – one who would bedevil them for the better part of the next two decades.

When the Indians (at that point still known as the Naps) met the Red Sox at Fenway Park on July 11, 1914, they did so before a crowd of 11,087 – the largest non-holiday crowd to see the Naps (who lost 102 games that year, giving no one a really good reason to see them). But they were there to see Boston’s newest pitcher, acquired from the minor league Baltimore Orioles, the team in his home town.

The next day’s Plain Dealer only used the pitcher’s last name: Ruth. His given name was George, but he became known worldwide as Babe, a nickname hung on him because of his naivete in his brief time with the Orioles. Read More

Bauer Pitches Like All-Star, Bullpen Like Trash; Reds 7, Indians 4

July 10, 2018 |

When you recap 162 games a season at a minimum, you kind of feel as though you see everything that can happen. Generally amidst the highs and lows of a long season, you may get a few firsts, you may see some stories that are a lot of fun to script, and a few others still that are absolute torture to relive.

But then this game – Tuesday, July 10 – happened. For the first time in more than a decade, the Cleveland Indians blew a four-run lead in the ninth inning. And it was not just the fact that it occurred, because in professional sports strange and unpredictable things can happen. It was the way that everything transpired that made the Tribe’s 7-4 shocking loss to the Cincinnati Reds all the more difficult to digest. Read More

Columbus’ Haase Named International League Player of the Week

July 10, 2018 |

Columbus’ Eric Haase stormed into the All-Star break with some big series last week against the Toledo Mud Hens and the Indianapolis Indians to conclude the first half of the Triple-A schedule. For his efforts, he was named the International League’s Player of the Week for games played between July 2 and July 8.

Haase played in all seven games during the week and had hits in five of the contests. He went 9-for-26 (.346) at the plate and added two walks to provide the Clippers with a .379 on-base percentage. Six of his nine hits during the week were for extra bases as he tallied a .731 slugging percentage. It earned him his second career Player of the Week award, coming almost a year to the date of his first win last July 8 while playing for the Double-A Akron RubberDucks. Read More
