Tribe Shuts Out Tigers for Sixth Time This Season; Indians 7, Tigers 0

September 19, 2019 |

The Indians got a quality start from Mike Clevinger and plenty of run support from the middle of the Cleveland lineup on Thursday in their sixth shutout of the season over the Detroit Tigers, 7-0.

For the 12th time this season, the Indians plated a half dozen runs or more against the Tigers in an unbelievable stretch of dominance over the cellar dwellers in the American League Central. Cleveland tallied an 18-1 record in their season series with Detroit, including wins in each of the last 17 games between the two clubs. The Indians (90-63) kept pace with the victorious Minnesota Twins to remain four games back in the division with nine to play, but more importantly, they pulled into a tie with the idle Tampa Bay Rays for the second Wild Card spot.

Perez’s Homer Pushes Tribe Past Twins; Indians 7, Twins 5

September 15, 2019 |

Roberto Perez’s three-run blast in a four-run sixth put the Cleveland Indians up for good as they defeated the Minnesota Twins, 7-5, on Sunday afternoon.

In the biggest series of the season, the Indians salvaged their final regular season game against the Twins to claim the season series against Minnesota, 10-9. Needing a sweep over the weekend, Cleveland was only able to earn a win in the finale, coming back from a 4-2 deficit to hold off the top club in the American League Central. Read More

Offense Absent as Tribe Shut Out by Twins; Twins 2, Indians 0

September 14, 2019 |

Facing a slew of arms out of the Minnesota bullpen, Cleveland could do nothing as the Twins used a third inning two-run home run by Jorge Polanco to claim a 2-0 win over the Indians in game one of Saturday’s doubleheader from Progressive Field.

In as must-win of a scenario as the Indians have faced this season, the offense came out flat and could not get anything of substance going against the suspect Twins bullpen as the club had to rely on its relief staff in game one on Saturday after Friday’s series opener between the two teams was washed out by heavy rains. The Twins had a tough time doing much against Mike Clevinger over eight solid innings from the right-hander, but it took just two quick hits to change the outcome of the game, and possibly the season, for the Tribe.

Tribe Slugs Seven Homers in Big Apple Bashing; Indians 19, Yankees 5

August 15, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians’ offense took advantage of a bullpen day by the New York Yankees, scattering 19 runs on 24 hits (including seven home runs) in a series opening 19-5 rout on Thursday night.

Four of five New York relievers to toe the rubber in the series opener of four from Yankee Stadium were tagged for at least four runs as the Indians put on a hitting display from the moment of first pitch. Cleveland had ten different players who recorded at least one hit, with all nine starters providing two hits or more. The offensive eruption backed a quality start by Adam Plutko, who surrendered two solo homers and three runs in total in six innings of work. Read More

Offense Strikes Early as Tribe Rolls over Halos; Indians 7, Angels 3

August 2, 2019 |

Seven runs scattered over the first three innings powered the Cleveland Indians to a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels in the series opener of their three-game set from Progressive Field.

The Indians’ run through the American League West continued on Friday as the Angels replaced the Astros in town, but they could not replicate Houston’s wins in two of the three games there earlier in the week. The Angels jumped out to an early lead two batters into the game, but the Indians came roaring back with a big offensive outburst to support the starting efforts of Mike Clevinger, who walked four but otherwise shut down his former club.

Verlander and Astros Blank Tribe on Two Hits; Astros 2, Indians 0

July 30, 2019 |

Justin Verlander looked like his former Cy Young self as he outpitched fellow American League All-Star Shane Bieber in a two-hit 2-0 shutout of the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night.

Verlander was sharp throughout and sat down the Tribe hitter after hitter while racking up 13 strikeouts on the night. The Indians managed to put just ten balls in play (eight for outs) against the 36-year-old right-hander, who improved to 14-4 on the year with a dominating start. He has now won all four of his starts since the All-Star break with four quality efforts. Read More

Twins Rally in Seventh to Take Opener from Tribe; Twins 5, Indians 3

July 12, 2019 |

So long, six-game winning streak. The Cleveland Indians lost a 3-1 lead in a three-run Minnesota rally in the seventh inning and the Twins held on for a 5-3 victory.

Hard-charging into the break winners of six in a row, the Indians bounced back from a first inning deficit to take a 3-1 lead after six innings, but the bullpen could not protect the lead in relief of starter Mike Clevinger. Nick Goody’s throwing error in the seventh helped the Twins put together their game-changing rally to fend off the Tribe. Read More

Dozier Slams Door on Hand; Royals 8, Indians 6

June 25, 2019 |

Brad Hand has been one of the best relievers in baseball this season, but Tuesday night was not his night. The Indians’ potential All-Star closer blew his first save in 23 chances, allowing five runs on five straight hits to start the ninth inning, capped by a Hunter Dozier grand slam, as the Kansas City Royals stunned Cleveland, 8-6.

Hand entered with a 1.05 ERA on the year in 35 games with just four runs allowed, but that ERA more than doubled to 2.36 in his worst outing of the season. Called upon for the fifth time in the last six days, Hand entered to protect a three-run lead in a 6-3 contest, but his first pitch to Martin Maldonado was sent to left for a leadoff double. Whit Merrifield followed with a single to center after fouling off several pitches. Nicky Lopez reached on an infield single to first that scored Maldonado to make it 6-4. Alex Gordon loaded the bases with a single to center and on the next pitch, Dozier unloaded them with a 406-foot blast to the bleachers to stun the hometown crowd. Read More

Four Homers Power Plesac and Tribe to Win in Texas; Indians 10, Rangers 3

June 18, 2019 |

Zach Plesac took a no-hitter into the fifth and allowed just two knocks on the night, while his teammates backed his strong start with four home runs in a 10-3 victory over the Texas Rangers from Globe Life Park on Tuesday.

The Tribe’s rookie right-hander pitched into the eighth inning for the first time in his big league career and bounced back well after a rough start against the Cincinnati Reds his last time out. He gave up just a run on two hits and departed in the eighth, while the bullpen handled the rest in a big offense performance from the Indians that included a rare feat not accomplished by the club in nearly 15 years. The ten-run outburst by the offense came on a night where both Francisco Lindor and Carlos Santana were held hitless. Read More

Bauers’ Cycle Caps Tribe Rout in Motown; Indians 13, Tigers 4

June 14, 2019 |

Jake Bauers hit for the first Indians cycle since 2016 and the offense used a season-high eight-run fourth inning to rout the Detroit Tigers in a 13-4 win on Friday night.

The Cleveland offense enjoyed its series opener at Comerica Park despite losing an early 2-0 lead. After falling behind in the third, the team batted around while putting up eight runs in the fourth and tacked on three more runs for good measure to easily defeat the host Tigers. Six different Tribe hitters had multi-hit games, including a three-hit day from Roberto Perez and a cycle for Bauers, who needed his last at bat in the eighth to become the ninth Cleveland player in the 119-year history of the organization to get a single, double, triple, and homer in the same game.

Indians Spoil Cleveland Leg of Sabathia’s Farewell Tour; Indians 8, Yankees 4

June 8, 2019 |

The Indians spoiled the final regular season start in Cleveland for longtime Tribe southpaw CC Sabathia and claimed another big series win over a playoff caliber opponent on Saturday afternoon with an 8-4 win over the New York Yankees.

Playing in his 19th and final Major League season, the Sabathia farewell tour made its stop in Cleveland with a big milestone on the line for the left-hander. Looking for his 250th career win in his last Progressive Field start (his home for eight big league seasons), Sabathia was good in the early going, but ran into trouble late and was bested by Adam Plutko, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus for a spot start for the Tribe.

Indians Rally Falls Short as Twins Avoid First Sweep of Year; Twins 5, Indians 4

June 6, 2019 | | One Comment

The story of the night was Minnesota’s Max Kepler, as the Cleveland Indians’ late attempt to rewrite that version ran out of ink as the Twins were victorious in their series finale at Progressive Field by a 5-4 count on Thursday night.

Indians starter Trevor Bauer had no answers for the slumping German Kepler, who blasted three home runs on the night for his second career three-homer game (both against Cleveland) to end an 0-for-21 drought at the plate and a 1-for-19 effort against the Indians thus far this season. A pair of solo shots and a two-run job provided the bulk of the offense for the Twins, who saw a suspect bullpen give up a pair of runs late to allow the Indians to make it a ball game. Read More
