Sunday Game Preview: Minnesota (60-98) vs. Cleveland (80-78)

Yesterday was a good day for the Indians as they swept the double header with the Twins by scores of 8-2 and 7-6.  The sixth inning was very good to Cleveland as they scored a total of 11 runs combined in the two games.  It was those sixth frames that pushed the Tribe to victory.

In game one, the Indians were tied at two before exploding with a sac fly, an RBI double, and three RBI singles as 11 players went to the plate in the inning.  Under the moon, the Tribe was down 6-0 when they got five runs on three RBI singles, an RBI double and a fielder’s choice that scored runs and then Shelley Duncan concluded his awesome day with a 2-run double that gave the Indians the lead and eventual victory.

It’s hard to believe that only a couple months ago the Indians valued Austin Kearns over Shelley Duncan. Duncan rode the Cleveland to Columbus shuttle for most of the season, but the last six weeks he has tried to prove he’s major league quality and he did it again Saturday evening, driving in three runs in a come from behind, 7-6 victory.

Six Run Sixth Pushes Tribe By Twinkies; Indians 8, Twins 2

September 24, 2011 |

After five tightly contested innings, the Indians took advantage of a tired Minnesota bullpen and blew open the game in the sixth inning, taking the first game of a doubleheader, 8-2.

The Tribe got the offense rolling early when Jason Kipnis and Travis Hafner each singled to put runners on the corners against Brian Duensing. Shelley Duncan followed with a double to deep center, scoring both and giving the Indians an early 2-0 lead.

Doubleheader Preview: Minnesota (60-96) vs. Cleveland (78-78)

September 24, 2011 |

Last night’s contest between the Twins and Indians can only be described as poetic.  On a night that Jim Thome was honored for his 600th home run, and his entire career, he had one of the biggest bats of the night.
 
After the Twins took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, Thome helped the Tribe get on the board by ripping a double to left field and scoring Kosuke Fukudome.  Later in the game, with Jason Kipnis on base, Thome launched a deep home run to the trees in center which landed 445 feet from Home Plate and tied the game at four.  It would be Carlos Santana‘s walk-off home run that won it for the Tribe in the ninth, 6-5.

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.

Game Preview: Chicago (76-79) vs. Cleveland (76-78)

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.
