February 9, 2016 |

August 21, 1948

Fans at Saturday’s game were treated to Ladies’ Night and watching the Indians set a new record for scoreless innings as Bob Lemon piled up goose eggs for eight straight innings.

But fans were also treated – if that’s the word – to watching Lemon give up back-to-back home runs to Aaron Robinson and Dave Philley as the shutout and then the game slipped away. The White Sox beat the Indians 3-2 to snap the Tribe’s eight-game win streak. Read More

Last night the Indians drew 78,382 fans to Municipal Stadium for Satchel Paige’s third start overall and second at home. Paige tossed a three hit shutout in a 1-0 victory, pushing the Tribe’s scoreless innings streak to 39 innings. The Indians have not given up a run in nearly a week. Read More

Sean Brady is a Young Pitcher with Potential

February 9, 2016 |

One major thing the Cleveland Indians had going for them last season was a strong pitching staff; specifically, their starting rotation was one of the best in the game.

Luckily, that depth doesn’t end with the big league roster. The Indians boast a strong group of pitchers all the way through their minor league system, with some of the strongest having been showcased last season with the Lake County Captains.

The Lake County pitching staff last season became the first staff in the history of the Captains organization to have five pitchers boast 100+ strikeouts on the season. Among these five pitchers was a 21-year-old from Cape Coral, Florida, named Sean Brady. Read More

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 55 days

The Cleveland Indians found out very early on last season the importance of having quality depth at the catching position when starting catcher Yan Gomes was knocked out of action during the first week of the season.

Thankfully, Roberto Perez stepped up and answered the call for the club and gave the Indians some consistency at the backstop. Read More

Paige Shuts Out Chicago For Second Time; Indians 1, White Sox 0

August 20, 1948

There are those who derided Bill Veeck’s signing of Satchel Paige from the Negro Leagues as nothing more than a publicity stunt.

And while fans are coming out in droves to see Satch pitch for the Tribe, the ageless wonder has proven to be more than effective as a spot starter.

Paige got one run of support from the Indians offense, but it was all he needed as he threw a three-hitter against the White Sox at Municipal Stadium. The Indians won 1-0, their eighth win in a row and their eighth straight against the Pale Hose. A crowd of 78,382 – a major league record for a night game – witnessed Paige’s second start in Cleveland. Read More

August 20, 1948

When the Indians left spring training and headed to Cleveland one of their biggest question marks was their outfield play. The Tribe was starting three new outfielders from a year ago and each was unproven in their own way.

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 56

February 8, 2016 |

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 56 days

In 2015 the Indians had one of the top pitching staffs in baseball. However, a major Achilles heel for the Tribe for about half the season was the number five starter role.

For the better part of the campaign’s first three months, Cleveland tried throwing anything and everything against the last starter wall in the hopes it would stick. From young guys like T.J. House, to a reclamation project in Zach McAllister, to veteran journeyman like Shaun Marcum and Bruce Chen, nothing worked. Read More
