Reds Pummel Plesac and Tribe Bullpen in Rout; Reds 7, Indians 2

June 12, 2019 |

The Cincinnati Reds used eight extra base hits, including four home runs, to split its two-game set in Cleveland in a 7-2 final over rookie right-hander Zach Plesac and the Indians on Wednesday afternoon.

The Reds came out swinging against the young Tribe hurler, making his fourth Major League start. He ran into some early troubles before settling down to retire 13 in a row, but Cincinnati broke things open for good with runs in four straight innings in the back half of the game to split their quick trip to Cleveland.

Indians’ Record Sellout Streak Began 24 Years Ago Wednesday

June 12, 2019 |

Twenty-four years ago today, the Indians played their first game home after a four-game stint in Milwaukee (then part of the American League).

The Tribe beat the Orioles 4-3 to maintain their lead in the newly-formed American League Central Division, and at 31-11, they had the best record in the majors. Despite giving up a home run to future Hall of Famer Harold Baines, Charles Nagy got the win, and Jose Mesa nailed down the save. It was the Indians’ second straight win – but it became famous as the start of a streak of a different kind.

Paid attendance for that game? 41,845. A sellout. Read More

Mercado’s Bases Loaded Single in Tenth Wins it for Tribe; Indians 2, Reds 1

June 11, 2019 |

Oscar Mercado has made the most out of his first opportunity as a Major Leaguer and he added another scene to his growing highlight reel on Tuesday night, driving in the winning run in the bottom of the tenth inning with a bases loaded one-out single to left to give the Cleveland Indians a 2-1 victory over the visiting Cincinnati Reds.

In a game knotted up since the top of the fifth, neither team put up much of a fight until the Tribe’s at bats in extra frames in game one of a quick two-gamer from downtown Cleveland. A well-pitched battle between Trevor Bauer and Luis Castillo was left in the hands of the bullpens, and the Indians were able to strike through with a big inning against Reds closer Raisel Iglesias to earn another walk-off celebration.

Colavito Busts Slump in Major Way – With Four Home Runs

June 10, 2019 |

On June 10, 1959, Rocky Colavito was in the middle of a slump, having gotten three hits in his previous 28 at-bats.

It was a long fall from the previous season, when the young slugger with the matinee-idol good looks had clubbed 41 home runs, good for second in the American League. And the Indians, who were fading from contention, were playing the Orioles at Memorial Stadium – not known for its hitter-friendly dimensions. And to top it off, a throwing error the night before by Colavito sparked a rally for the Orioles to win.

But the next day, Colavito had a game for the ages that day – which remains his proudest moment as a major leaguer. Read More

Indians Force Extras, Fall to Yankees in Ten; Yankees 7, Indians 6

June 9, 2019 |

The Indians rallied back from a 5-0 hole on Sunday and tied the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth on the second error of the inning by the Yankees, but two doubles in the tenth gave New York a 7-6 win over Cleveland.

With Masahiro Tanaka pushed back from his scheduled start on Sunday due to the birth of his second child, the Yankees went with a bullpen game. The Indians essentially did the same as Shane Bieber was chased from the mound with just two outs in the second inning as the Yankees put up an early five-spot to take a big lead. Read More

Indians Spoil Cleveland Leg of Sabathia’s Farewell Tour; Indians 8, Yankees 4

June 8, 2019 |

The Indians spoiled the final regular season start in Cleveland for longtime Tribe southpaw CC Sabathia and claimed another big series win over a playoff caliber opponent on Saturday afternoon with an 8-4 win over the New York Yankees.

Playing in his 19th and final Major League season, the Sabathia farewell tour made its stop in Cleveland with a big milestone on the line for the left-hander. Looking for his 250th career win in his last Progressive Field start (his home for eight big league seasons), Sabathia was good in the early going, but ran into trouble late and was bested by Adam Plutko, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus for a spot start for the Tribe.
