All Good Things Must Come to an End; Royals 4, Indians 3

September 15, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians did something for the first time on Friday night since August 23 – they lost.

A back and forth ball game went in favor of the Kansas City Royals, who ended the Indians’ 22-game winning streak in a 4-3 contest at Progressive Field. Read More

Starting pitcher Cliff Lee makes his Major League debut, allowing just one run on two hits in five and one-third innings, but he earns the tough-luck loss as the Indians are shut out by the Minnesota Twins, 5-0. Read More

Bruce’s Walkoff in Tenth Clinches Tribe’s Postseason Berth; Indians 3, Royals 2

September 14, 2017 |

Is there anything that this Cleveland Indians team cannot do?

Finding themselves down in the ninth inning for the first time in a 22-game span, the Indians rallied down to their final out to tie the game against Kansas City closer Kelvin Herrera and won the game on a walk-off single the next inning down the right field line by Jay Bruce as the Tribe clinched a trip to the postseason for the second straight year in a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the Royals on Thursday night.

Tribe Looks to Keep the Good Times Rolling in Final Series with Royals

September 14, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians sent a very loud message to the Kansas City Royals when the two clubs met six times over two series in August. The Tribe took two of three early in the month, outscoring KC 22-5, and then swept a later set in Cleveland, putting up three straight shutouts while tallying 20 runs of their own.

The Royals will try to change that trend during a four-game weekend series with the Indians in Cleveland, but will have the daunting task of trying to stop the Indians’ 21-game winning streak first. Read More

HISTORY! Tribe Sweeps Tigers for 21st Straight Victory; Indians 5, Tigers 3

September 13, 2017 |

With a 5-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday afternoon, the Cleveland Indians made history, exceeding the Oakland A’s American League record for consecutive wins in a season with 21 (set in 2002) while matching the Major League record of 21 (set by the Chicago Cubs in 1935).

The Indians (90-56) have cut their magic number down to four, with the Minnesota Twins scheduled to play San Diego at 8:10 PM ET from Target Field. One hundred wins are in sight for the club, as they need to go just 10-6 in their final 16 games to reach the century mark for the first time since 1995 and just the second time in club history (111 in 1954). The Indians finished the season with a 13-6 record against the Tigers, outscoring them 110-62. Read More

Even with Career Year, Ramirez has a Long Way to Go for Burns’ Doubles Mark

September 13, 2017 |

By any observable metric, Jose Ramirez is on a tear.

After stepping in last year to fill roles in the infield and outfield, Ramirez has blossomed into a legitimate MVP candidate, with 5.3 wins above replacement and a .308 batting average. He’s leading the league in doubles with 47. With the right combination of speed and power, and the way the Indians are playing right now, 60 doubles wouldn’t be out of the question.

It would be a mark unseen in nearly 80 years – and nowhere near the best ever by an Indians player. Read More

Indians Match AL Record Behind Kluber’s Complete Game Shutout; Indians 2, Tigers 0

September 12, 2017 |

Is there any pitcher in Major League Baseball you would want on the mound in a big game?

The list is probably small, but Corey Kluber is a must mention. He proved once again why he is charging towards the American League Cy Young Award on Tuesday night, as he blanked the Detroit Tigers on five hits for his third complete game shutout of the season while giving the Cleveland Indians their 20th consecutive win.

The improbable winning streak by the Tribe (89-56) has now matched the AL record of 20, set by the Oakland Athletics in 2002. The team will take aim at the Chicago Cubs’ Major League record of 21 straight wins in the series finale with the Tigers on Wednesday afternoon. Read More

Indians’ Depth Will Help the Club Buffer Untimely Loss of Zimmer

September 12, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians are no strangers to September injuries to key pieces of their roster.

Just last season alone, the Indians lost Danny Salazar, Carlos Carrasco, and Corey Kluber to various ailments in the final month of the regular season schedule. While Kluber would return and put the team on his back for the postseason, Carrasco was lost for the duration while Salazar made a brief cameo in the World Series, but only in the capacity of a reliever when the team was in dire need of a starter to ease the workload on the remaining healthy members of the rotation.

Those injuries attacked an area that the Indians lacked good quality depth. The same cannot be said for the disappointing news that came out of the Tribe’s 18th straight win on Sunday night, when Bradley Zimmer was stepped on during a head first dive into first base. Read More

In just his third season at the helm of the Tribe, 52-year-old Cleveland manager Doc Edwards is fired after a disappointing midseason collapse by the club. He is replaced in the dugout by 41-year-old John Hart, a former minor league manager and coach for the Baltimore Orioles. Read More

Tribe Routs Tigers Again With Another Shutout; Indians 11, Tigers 0

September 11, 2017 | | One Comment

The pressure of a long winning streak has not been too much for the Indians, as Cleveland pulled within one game of the American League record for consecutive wins on Monday night with its 19th straight victory, an 11-0 shutout of the Detroit Tigers from Progressive Field.

There seems to be little slowing down the Indians (88-56), who have made it loud and clear that they are the favorites to claim the American League pennant despite missing several big names from the lineup and appearing unfazed by injuries that have chipped away at the roster throughout the second half of the schedule. Despite missing three former All-Stars in Andrew Miller, Michael Brantley, and Jason Kipnis and losing rookie Bradley Zimmer to what appears to be a season ending broken left hand, the Indians kept on rolling in the series opener with the Tigers and continued their dominance of Detroit since the beginning of July after dropping the first two series against them to start the season.

The Indians were challenged by rookie Myles Jaye on Monday night, as the young right-hander was making his third Major League appearance and first career start with the unenviable job of stopping Cleveland’s reign of terror on AL clubs. He would dodge a jam in the first, but that would be the last time he would slow down the Tribe. Read More
