Kipnis Continuing Productive Stretch at the Plate

August 7, 2019 |

For many years, the Indians offense has been linked to what Jason Kipnis could provide the lineup with his bat in his work near the top of the batting order. In recent years, the team has had to look elsewhere for that production as the popular second baseman has not provided the All-Star level numbers that he did during some of his early years in a Cleveland uniform.

That has all changed this season after a slow start to his 2019 campaign. Now, like fellow infielder Jose Ramirez, Kipnis’ bat has come alive and has stayed that way as the team has surged its way back up towards the top of the American League Central Division. Read More

Indians and Rangers Rained Out on Tuesday

August 6, 2019 |

Tuesday’s game between the visiting Texas Rangers and the host Cleveland Indians was rained out from Progressive Field with inclement weather pending in the northeast Ohio area. The game will be played on Wednesday as part of a traditional doubleheader.

The pitching probables for the night, Cleveland’s Zach Plesac (6-3, 3.41 ERA) and Texas’ Ariel Jurado (6-6, 4.92), were pushed back to start the opener of Wednesday’s double dip, still scheduled for 1:10 PM ET. The second game will start shortly after the completion of game one and will see a bullpen game from the Tribe while the Rangers will call on right-hander Lance Lynn (14-6, 3.71). Read More

August 6, 2019 |

There was a fair bit of controversy on this date in 1937, as the Cleveland Indians would protest a 7-6 loss to the New York Yankees as the home town club rallied for two runs in the bottom of the tenth to earn a win aided by some confusion among the umpires calling the game. Read More

Minor Majors in Mastery of Tribe; Rangers 1, Indians 0

August 5, 2019 |

Texas’ Mike Minor came into Monday night’s series opener at Progressive Field with video game numbers against the Cleveland Indians. The left-hander had pitched seven times against the Indians in his career (six relief appearances with the Kansas City Royals in 2017 and one start this June for the Rangers), allowing just one run on seven hits with 18 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings of work.

He continued that mastery of the Indians with seven shutout innings on Monday as he combined with two relievers to blank Cleveland on eight hits, 1-0.

Minor made his first start in August after a disastrous July that wrapped around the first All-Star nod of his career. He went 1-2 with a 6.59 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP in five starts last month as he struggled with both his command and the long ball. He got both of those things in check against the Indians, as he scattered seven hits and a walk in seven shutout innings, striking out seven while making the one lone Rangers run stand strong.

Bieber Goes the Distance as Tribe Sweeps Angels; Indians 6, Angels 2

August 4, 2019 |

Shane Bieber threw his third complete game of the season as the Cleveland Indians completed their three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels in a 6-2 final on Sunday afternoon.

Bieber received some early run support but got a big jolt in the middle innings as the Indians pulled away from the Angels. The second-year starter scattered five hits over nine innings of work and avoided unnecessary problems by issuing no free passes. Three Indians long balls powered the offense in a ten-hit effort as the team improved to 4-2 during their current nine-game homestand. Read More

Five-Run Fifth Powers Tribe Past Angels; Indians 7, Angels 2

August 3, 2019 |

With the Browns’ Baker Mayfield in attendance, the Cleveland Indians put on a show as they hit three home runs, including two in a five-run fifth inning, as the Tribe defeated the Los Angeles Angels by a 7-2 final on Saturday night.

Mayfield incidentally may have sparked the Tribe’s fifth inning rally in a scoreless game. The star second-year quarterback for the NFL’s Browns was shown on the Progressive Field scoreboard, drinking a beer before shotgunning a second while flexing his Francisco Lindor jersey to the hometown crowd. Shortly thereafter, the Indians offense erupted, backing starting pitcher Adam Plutko to another win. Read More

Offense Strikes Early as Tribe Rolls over Halos; Indians 7, Angels 3

August 2, 2019 |

Seven runs scattered over the first three innings powered the Cleveland Indians to a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels in the series opener of their three-game set from Progressive Field.

The Indians’ run through the American League West continued on Friday as the Angels replaced the Astros in town, but they could not replicate Houston’s wins in two of the three games there earlier in the week. The Angels jumped out to an early lead two batters into the game, but the Indians came roaring back with a big offensive outburst to support the starting efforts of Mike Clevinger, who walked four but otherwise shut down his former club.
