Tribe Earns Milestones, Down ChiSox; Indians 11, White Sox 2

September 23, 2011 |

By Matt Van Wormer

The Indians and White Sox started the evening with a good nature gesture, and ended it with the Tribe reaching several milestones as they won Thursday’s game, 11-2.

At the beginning of tonight’s contest, it looked like it would be a friendly night as two potential Hall of Fame ballplayers met at home plate to exchange the lineup cards for their teams. Of course we’re talking about Jim Thome and Omar Vizquel, two great men who spent the large parts of their careers wearing Chief Wahoo on their heads.

The Indians got the contest under way on the right foot, from the left batter’s box. After Jeanmar Gomez set the Sox down 1-2-3 in the top half, Kosuke Fukudome led off the bottom half of the inning with a home run to right-center field off of Phillip Humber. Jason Kipnis then followed suit by golfing one over the center field wall, just out of the reach of Alex Rios. It was the first time two Indians have led off the game with home runs, at home, in over 40 years.

Ubaldo Jimenez couldn’ hold the lead for the Tribe last night as he was responsible for four of the eight runs that the White Sox scored and by the time the Indians got to the four run mark, Chicago had the game in hand.  Chad Durbin had another rough outing as well as he gave up home runs to Alex Rios and Brent Morel.
 
Tonight will be the last chance for the Indians to get a win against the White Sox and stay ahead of them in the race for second place in the Central Division.  On the bump for the Tribe will be Jeanmar Gomez (4-2, 3.78, 1.47 WHIP) while Philip Humber (9-8, 3.59, 1.17 WHIP) takes the pill for Chicago.

Late Innings Take Down Tribe; White Sox 8, Indians 4

September 22, 2011 |

What appeared to be a pitcher’s duel between Ubaldo Jimenez and Mark Buehrle for six innings, turned into a slugfest when both bullpens exploded in the late innings. The White Sox were able to out-slug the Tribe and win, 8-4.

Jimenez, who only allowed an infield hit in the first three innings, looked to be dominant early, hitting the radar gun around 93-96 miles per hour. However, Tyler Flowers doubled home Dayan Viciedo in the top of the fifth inning to break open the scoring. The Indians would battle back to take a 2-1 lead after six innings when Travis Hafner hit a two run home run. His homer to right had as much hang time as it did distance.

Chicago Steals Night Cap Late; White Sox 5, Indians 4

September 21, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

For six innings Tuesday night it appeared the Indians had everthing cooking. It seemed they would come away with a doubleheader sweep against the White Sox and get back above .500. After six innings, the Tribe led 4-3, just hours after taking the first game at Progressive Field. Then, the top of the seventh happened. The Sox scored a pair, the Indians stopped scoring and Chicago worked its way to a split of the twinbill, knocking off the Indians 5-4 in the evening tilt.

Carmona and Long Ball Takes Afternoon Tilt; Indians 4, White Sox 3

September 20, 2011 |

 

The Indians used three home runs and a solid pitching performance from Fausto Carmona to take the first game of a day, night doubleheader, by a score of 4-3. The win gets the Indians back to the .500 mark with just ten games remaining.

Jason Kipnis reached on a bunt single down the third base line in the bottom of the first inning before Travis Hafner homered to right field, giving the Indians an early 2-0 lead. It was Hafner’s 12th home run of the season. It was the first home run of the season for the Tribe against Gavin Floyd, but the first of more to come.

The Indians had a chance to get back over the .500 mark yesterday but couldn’t get the job done.  David Huff had another rough outing, going just 2.2 innings and giving up seven hits, nine runs (five earned) and walking three batters.  Between Triple-A and Cleveland, Huff may be getting tired with all of the innings he has ended up throwing.

Seattle Washes Away Tribe; Mariners 12, Indians 6

September 20, 2011 |

 

All series at Progressive Field between the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians should be sponsored by the United States Post Office. Because in recent years, the two teams have played through rain, sleet and snow.

Monday’s game, a make up from a May 15 rainout, was played through a steady drizzle until it picked up and shortened the game to only seven innings. The Mariners were able to hit the Indians and David Huff with a hurricane of hits in the third inning, pacing their way to a 12-6 victory over the Tribe.
