Still A Heartbeat; Indians 7, Mariners 5

August 23, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Yesterday Shin-Soo Choo missed the game to see the birth of his daughter, Abigail, and enjoy the first few breaths and heartbeats with his immediate family. Today, Choo may have given his baseball family a couple more breaths and heartbeats in the American League Central Division race.

Choo’s walkoff, three-run homer, gave the Indians a 7-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.

Masterson Takes Control Of Rotation

August 23, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

In two years, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson has gone from the player nobody wanted in the Victor Martinez trade to becoming the ace of the pitching staff. He has gone from a pitcher no one knew what to do with, to the steps of elite-level starter.

In July of 2009, with the Tribe out of contention for a second straight season, Indians management began trading away veteran talent, that would soon command millions of dollars on the open market, for young players with boatloads of potential. Masterson was one of those players. A second round draft pick by the Boston Red Sox in 2006, the flame-throwing right-hander had tons of potential. The biggest question was where would that potential best be suited?

Today In Tribe History; August 23, 1936

August 23, 2011 |

By Vince Guerrieri

A high school phenom took the mound for the Indians against the St. Louis Browns on a Sunday afternoon at League Park 75 years ago today, Aug. 23, 1936.

He was signed off the sandlots of Iowa for a buck and an autographed baseball, and had never played an inning in the minor leagues. The Browns were regarded as the dregs of the American League – the saying was that St. Louis was “first in booze, first in shoes and last in the American League” – but it was still stiffer competition than the 17-year-old hurler had ever seen before.

Non-Save Situation For The Season; Mariners 3, Indians 2

August 23, 2011 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

In a contest that featured Eric Wedge and Manny Acta as managers, Acta still found a way to finish second in the contest.

Acta’s decision to go to Chris Perez in a non-save situation in the ninth inning, despite his repeated struggles in that role, certainly cost the Indians this evening’s game and possibly their playoff hopes. The Seattle Mariners were able to take the first game of a pivotal series and homestand, 3-2 over the Indians.

Series Preview: Seattle (53-72) vs. Cleveland (62-61)

August 22, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

At certain times, a team needs to take a look at itself in the mirror and ask themselves if they are who they intend to be.  This is one of those gut check times for the Cleveland Indians.  After failing to even maintain pace with the Tigers in Detroit this weekend, the Indians sit four and a half games back of the Central Division leaders and just one game over .500.  The White Sox are hot on the Indians tails as well and with Seattle, Kansas City and Oakland coming to town, Cleveland has to take advantage of these sub .500 teams.  These “should-win” games will tell us all we need to know about the Indians’ post-season chances.

Next 11 Games May Determine Indians Fate

August 22, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Manny Acta said this isn’t the time to panic. That’s good, because I panicked a couple weeks ago. He said the team has had more crushing defeats than this one. That’s debatable, but they’ve had many, so I’ll give it to him.

After being swept by the Detroit Tigers, being embarrassed Saturday night and having Ubaldo Jimenez embarrassed Sunday afternoon, I know one thing for sure and I’m hoping Acta does too.

Can’t Quite Come All The Way Back; Tigers 8, Indians 7

August 22, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

A weekend series that began with such high hopes for the Cleveland Indians ended in complete despair and has put the Tribe in a bit of a hole in the A.L. Central Division.

When the Indians arrived at Comerica Park to play the first-place Tigers on Friday night, they were a mere 1.5 games out of the top spot. However, following Sunday’s 8-7 loss and sweep at the hands of Detroit, the Indians now come home out of it by a much wider 4.5 games.

Tigers Storm To Big Win; Tigers 10, Indians 1

August 21, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

David Huff has been susceptible to rain on the days of his starts this season. He could have used a rainout Saturday. Unfortunately for the Indians, the rain stormed through an hour before the game.

Huff never had control on the mound and the Detroit Tigers took advantage early and often, as they defeated the Indians, 10-1. In what looked to be a series the Tribe could make ground on the Tigers, the Wahoos have now dropped to three and a half back in the standings.

Home Runs Take Down Tribe; Tigers 4, Indians 1

August 20, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Josh Tomlin has been credited for his consistency all season long. However, part of that consistency has been his ability to give up the home run ball and that was his kryptonite Friday evening, as the Tigers took the first game of the three game series by a score of 4-1.

Tomlin, and Detroit starter Max Scherzer, were in complete control of the game for five innings, motoring through the lineups and only allowing two hits a piece. With one out in the bottom of the sixth inning, Ryan Raburn singled and Austin Jackson hit a two-run home run into the Indians bullpen to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead.
