Long Ball Takes Down Tribe; Royals 8, Indians 2

April 26, 2012 |

By Matthew Van Wormer

First, let’s take a moment to look at the positives. The Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox both lost their games on Wednesday so the Indians still hold on to a share of first place in the Central Division. Unfortunately, the Tribe blew a perfect chance to be on top all by themselves. The final score on the night was 8-2 in favor of the Royals.

Instead, the Indians lost to the Royals, ending Kansas City’s 12-game losing streak. The Indians struggled to get timely hits and had another subpar outing from Ubaldo Jimenez who walked the leadoff hitter en route to his first loss of the season. In his six innings of work, Jimenez gave up six hits and four earned runs. The Tribe starters allowed four home runs in the contest.

Game #16 – Kansas City Royals (3-14) vs. Cleveland Indians (9-6)

April 25, 2012 |

By Matthew Van Wormer

When we all went to bed last night, the Indians were tied for 2nd place in the A.L. Central with the Detroit Tigers. While we were sleeping, the Oakland Athletics took down the Chicago White Sox propelling the Tribe and Tigers into a three way tie for the Central Division lead. It is very early in the season but after a 1-4 start, it hasn’t taken long for the Indians to assert themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Cleveland will look for their ninth win in 11 games tonight against a Royals team that has lost 12 straight. They are the sixth team in the history of baseball to lose 12 straight games before the end of April.

Damon Addition Will Result In Someone’s Subtraction From Roster

April 25, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Fans begged for it and very soon, they are going to get it. Johnny Damon will be in Cleveland. But with Damon arriving in town, someone is going to have to leave.

Damon is currently in extended spring training in Goodyear, Arizona, playing in daily exhibition games. He has been playing left field and designated hitter, getting ready for what will most likely be a short minor league stint this weekend.

The Indians have announced that Damon will report to Triple-A Columbus before finally being promoted to Cleveland. Considering Damon’s contract asks that he be on the 25-man roster by May 1, it is a fair assumption that Damon’s trip to Columbus may be this weekend, before reporting to Cleveland for the Tribe’s game next Tuesday.

Lowe Shines and Hannahan Doubles Tribe To Home Victory; Indians 4, Royals 3

April 25, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

The Indians have started the season with clutch hitting to make their offense go. However, this evening the Tribe wasn’t so clutch, but Derek Lowe gave the team a good effort and Jack Hannahan had a timely double to pace the Indians past the struggling Royals, 4-3.

“It was a well pitched ballgame today. Our pitching staff pretty much picked up our offense today,” manager Manny Acta said. “We had a lot of opportunities that we didn’t cash in but the offense carried us most of the road trip.”

The Tribe struck immediately in the bottom of the first inning. Leadoff hitter Jason Kipnis was hit by a pitch to start the inning. Kipnis’ hit by pitch was the latest in a long line of Indians hit by left hander Jonathan Sanchez.

Asdrubal Cabrera, fresh off the bereavement list, laced a double down the line to put runners on second and third. After Shin-Soo Choo struck out, Carlos Santana hit a low liner to left field that was good enough for a sacrifice fly to score Kipnis and give the Indians a 1-0 lead early.

Game #15 – Kansas City Royals (3-13) vs. Cleveland Indians (8-6)

April 24, 2012 |

By Matthew Van Wormer

The Indians are returning to the shores of Lake Erie after an outstanding road trip where the Indians did some serious damage.  They won all three series on their nine game trip, dropping just two of the games.  They started their jaunt by sweeping the team that is heading into Cleveland tonight, the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals have been a sinking ship since having a strong showing against the Angels to start the season.  They have lost 11 of their last 12 including ten straight losses at home to start that portion of their season.  The Royals are a young team but they know that they have nothing to lose and those opponents can sometimes be the most dangerous.  The Tribe will have to keep doing what they have been doing for the last week and a half; beating teams they are supposed to beat.

Jacobs Field Nearing Twenty Years Of History

Twenty years ago last week, construction started on Cleveland’s field of dreams.

On April 16, 1992, concrete started being poured for the new baseball stadium as part of the Gateway Project in downtown Cleveland, which also included a new arena that would be the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers, then playing in the Richfield Coliseum.

Free Chris Perez! Fined For Defending His Teammate?

April 23, 2012 | | One Comment

“You hit us, we hit you. Period.”

So tweeted Chris Perez (@ChrisPerez54) after a hard-fought (in several senses of the word) 11-9 extra-inning win on the road over the Royals on April 14.

Royals pitcher Jonathan Sanchez hit Shin-Soo Choo in the top of the third inning. Sanchez, pitching for the Giants last year, hit Choo in the hand, breaking his thumb and sending him to the disabled list for six weeks. Choo and Sanchez exchanged words, and both dugouts emptied. Choo ended up taking his base without further incident. No warnings were given. Sanchez ended up getting chased that inning as the Indians mounted a 5-0 lead.

Masterson Struggles Again, Complete Road Trip On Sour Note; Athletics 5, Indians 1

April 22, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

The glass half-full side will celebrate the end of a very successful west coast trip. The glass half-empty side will begin to wonder and speculate about three straight subpar Justin Masterson outings. His third resulted in a 5-1 defeat to the hands of the Oakland Athletics.

The Athletics avoided the sweep on Sunday by beating Masterson around early. The defeat alone may seem like a little concern, but the loss of consistency in your ace is a big concern.

Game #14—Cleveland Indians (8-5) at Oakland Athletics (7-9)

April 22, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

After a nine game, three city road trip, most teams are anxious to get home to the comfort of their own city and ballpark. The Indians, however, are 7-1 on their trip heading into to today’s final contest of the swing.

Last night the Indians remained hot on their west coast road trip, defeating the Oakland Athletics 5-1. Jason Kipnis had four hits, including a triple to drive in two runs and break the game open in the eighth inning. Jeanmar Gomez pitched five and one-third innings before handing the game over to the bullpen. Gomez earned his first victory of the season.
