Lemon, Wynn Took Different Paths to 1,227 Strikeouts with Indians

May 30, 2018 |

Last Friday, Corey Kluber reached a milestone, with his 1,228th strikeout, putting him alone in third place on the Indians’ all-time list (he added one more before the end of his outing).

It’ll be a while before he catches up to Sudden Sam McDowell with 2,159 strikeouts (Bob Feller stands atop the list with 2,581 Ks), but by reaching third place, he passed two Hall of Famers who were contemporaries, but took vastly different paths to their 1,227 strikeouts with the Indians: Bob Lemon and Early Wynn.

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 24

March 5, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 24 days

For the last year and a half, 6’7” southpaw Andrew Miller, the current resident 24 in a Cleveland Indians uniform, has been one of the more dominant relief pitchers in the game, earning his first two All-Star appearances in that span. Now, the 32-year-old lefty is in the final year of his contract with the Indians, and if he continues to pitch as well as he has over the last few years, he will likely outprice himself from the team’s future.

It Took Awhile, But Wynn Finally Got His 300th Victory in a Tribe Uniform

July 13, 2016 |

For the better part of a decade, Early Wynn was a prolific and dependable pitcher, regularly at the top of the list of American League pitchers in wins, strikeouts, starts and innings.

He was a mainstay in the Indians’ rotation for the 1954 team that won 111 games and the pennant, and won the Cy Young Award five years later as he led the White Sox to the American League flag.

But by the fall of 1962, Wynn was running on fumes, but trying to reach what at the time was an elusive milestone: 300 wins. It took him eight tries with two teams, but 53 years ago today, he finally did it. Read More
