Tribe Routs Sox to Spoil Chicago’s Final Home Date; Indians 10, White Sox 2

September 26, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians wrapped up a productive season against both Chicago teams with eight shutout innings on Wednesday in a 10-2 victory at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Allowing just a pair of runs in the ninth inning, the Indians successfully stomped the White Sox in their home finale to finish the season with a 14-5 record against their young and rebuilding divisional rival. Six dominant shutout innings from Shane Bieber took the White Sox right out of the game, and four straight innings of scoring in the middle of the game from the Tribe offense buried Chicago in a hole it could not come out of.

Tribe Loses Lead for Good in Four-Run Seventh; Red Sox 7, Indians 5

September 21, 2018 |

Rookie starter Shane Bieber was unable to protect a 4-1 lead, allowing six runs on eight hits in relief, as the Cleveland Indians fell to the Boston Red Sox by a 7-5 final on Friday night from Progressive Field.

The Red Sox (105-49) matched a franchise-best mark with their 105th win of the season while winning their third in a row over the Indians, a possible playoff matchup for them on their quest for a World Series. In the three previous years that the Red Sox earned more than 100 wins, the team has reached the championship series, winning twice and losing once. Read More

Tribe and Red Sox Meet for Last Time in 2018 – in the Regular Season

September 21, 2018 |

Baseball will get a playoff preview of sort over the weekend as the Cleveland Indians host the Boston Red Sox in three straight games from Progressive Field. The series may lack the usual buildup, however, as both teams have clinched and will likely be looking to rest up players in anticipation for the postseason grind.

The Indians (85-67) claimed a pair of wins in three tries against the Chicago White Sox in their second-to-last series against their young fourth place rival on the year. The team needed a walk-off grand slam in the second game of the series to claim a series win as they lost in extra innings on Thursday night. The Indians and Red Sox last met in the third week of August and each team won a pair of games, with Cleveland claiming the first two close contests before Boston earned 10-4 and 7-0 victories in the final games.

Skeleton Crew Rally Falls Short as Tigers Hold Off Tribe Late; Tigers 6, Indians 4

September 16, 2018 |

An Indians lineup composed of bench pieces, recent minor league call-ups, and players getting in routine work while returning from injury challenged the Tigers on Sunday, but a ninth-inning rally fell just short as Detroit claimed a 6-4 win in Cleveland.

The Tigers (61-88) took a series from the Indians (83-66) for just the second time this season, improving to 6-13 against the Tribe this season. Cleveland owned Detroit throughout the year, outscoring the division rival 116-47 for the season. The Indians rested all of the regulars on Sunday, one day after formally clinching the American League Central crown for the third straight season, but the backups did their best to try to bring Cleveland another win.

Tribe Starts Last Stand with Three Against Tigers

September 14, 2018 |

With a magic number of two, the Cleveland Indians look to wrap up the American League Central Division during a three-game weekend set with the Detroit Tigers.

The Indians (82-64) had a tough time during the week with Tampa Bay, dropping two of three again for the second time against the Rays this month. It continued season-long woes against the AL East, which has held the Indians to a 14-17 record against it this season. The Indians have crushed the AL Central, winning two out of every three contests to hold a 42-21 record over their division rivals. That mark is tied with the Atlanta Braves for the second-best interdivisional record and trails only the Boston Red Sox’s 48-19 performance against the East. Read More

Tribe Battery Powered in Shutout of Tampa; Indians 2, Rays 0

September 11, 2018 |

Rookie Shane Bieber made arguably the best start of his young career and a pair of solo home runs from his offense, including one from his battery mate, helped the Cleveland Indians secure their sixth straight winning season in a 2-0 shutout over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.

Bieber was locked in all game long, striking out a career-high eleven batters in six and two-thirds innings of shutout baseball. Blasts from Yan Gomes and Edwin Encarnacion off of Rays starter Tyler Glasnow proved to be enough as the 6’8” right-hander was dealt another tough loss against the Indians this season. Read More

Tribe Heads to the Trop to Take on the Rays for Three

September 10, 2018 |

The Indians will try to wrap up the American League Central Division this week in Tampa as Cleveland concludes its seven-game road trip with three games against the Rays.

Cleveland (81-62) traded wins and losses with the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend to start its seven-game road trip before the final homestand of their year. September has been a rough one for the Tribe, as Cleveland is just 4-5 through the first nine days of the month. The pitching has provided some of the issue, as opposing players are hitting .272 against them this month, the second-worst mark in the American League. They do, however, lead the Bigs with 107 strikeouts and the league in walks with 17 in 81 1/3 innings. The Indians come into the series with a magic number to clinch the Central at five. Read More

Big Day at the Top Trims Tribe’s Magic Number to Seven; Indians 9, Blue Jays 4

September 6, 2018 |

Francisco Lindor paced Cleveland’s offense with a pair of homers and four RBI and Jason Kipnis tacked on three big runs late to support Indians starter Shane Bieber in a 9-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night.

It was a back and forth game from the city of Toronto as the Indians kicked off a four-game set north of the border with the Blue Jays, which had taken two of three games from Cleveland earlier in the season. The Indians had an early lead and coughed it up in a four-run fourth inning, but came right back with a three-run response in the fifth before adding on runs in the sixth and ninth innings to secure their 80th win of the season against 60 losses.

Tribe Takes Show on the Road with a Four-Day Trip to Toronto

September 6, 2018 |

The Indians are back on the road this weekend after a nine-game homestand as they head north of the border to Toronto to play four times with the Blue Jays.

The Indians (79-60) dropped their magic number to eight on Thursday when they completed a series win over the Kansas City Royals in a tight 3-1 victory from Progressive Field while the second place Minnesota Twins dropped their fifth straight in a 9-1 defeat against Houston. The pair of wins over the Royals brought the Tribe’s record during their nine-game homestand to 5-4, salvaging things some after dropping three in a row over the weekend. Read More

Four-Run Sixth Pushes Rays Past Tribe; Ray 5, Indians 3

September 1, 2018 |

Tampa Bay backed a quality outing from Blake Snell with four runs off of Shane Bieber in the sixth inning as the Rays knocked off the Cleveland Indians in a 5-3 final from Progressive Field on Saturday night.

The All-Star Snell overcame early run support for Bieber as he gave up two runs (one earned) and continued his dominant run on the mound on the way to his 17th win of the season. Bieber performed well through the first five innings, but the third time through the order would prove to be too problematic for the 23-year-old rookie righty. Read More

Old Friend Cash Brings Rays Back to Town for Three

August 31, 2018 |

Former Indians coach Kevin Cash has done some interesting things with the Tampa Bay Rays. Those Rays are on pace for their best win total in his four years as manager and will look to build towards that end result as the club returns to Cleveland for the first time since the middle of May of last season.

The Indians (76-57) edged out a series win over the Minnesota Twins to take the season series from the second place team of the American League Central during the week. It gave the Indians season series victories over the Twins, Chicago White Sox, and Detroit Tigers, while having a sizable lead over the Kansas City Royals (8-4) prior to their visit at the beginning of next week as they go for the AL Central sweep.

Steady Offensive Support Salvages Series Finale for Tribe; Indians 12, Royals 5

August 26, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians used a five-run fourth inning while tacking on runs in each of the final four frames to thump the Royals in a 12-5 rout to avoid a series sweep in Kansas City on Sunday afternoon.

Shane Bieber’s rookie campaign continued to march on as he gave an efficient, but not quite quality, outing on the mound. He was unable to complete the sixth inning, but by then, his teammates had overcome a quick early deficit to give him a sizeable lead. Read More
