May 7, 2021 |

Zach Plesac pitched a gem for the Indians on Friday, but the Cincinnati Reds’ Wade Miley did him one better, throwing nine complete innings of no-hit ball to deal Cleveland a stunning 3-0 loss.

Plesac gave the Tribe his all, but Miley baffled the Cleveland bats as the team suffered its second no-hit performance in the last month. Plesac threw eight innings of shutout baseball while scattering three hits, but the Reds broke the scoreless tie in a messy top of the ninth before Miley completed his historic efforts for the first no-hitter of his eleven-year career.

May 6, 2021 |

Cleveland ended its road trip in dominating fashion, as Triston McKenzie bounced back from a career-worst performance to fire five shutout innings of two-hit baseball before letting his bullpen handle the rest as the Indians blanked the Kansas City Royals by a 4-0 final on Thursday afternoon.

The Indians won six of seven games during their road trip over the last week, taking two of three from the Chicago White Sox before sweeping the Royals in a four-game series in KC for the first time ever.

Tribe Comes Back Again as Naylor’s Blast in Ninth Seals Win; CLE 5, KCR 4

May 6, 2021 |

The Tribe bats came to the rescue of Shane Bieber in his toughest outing of the season, as the Cleveland offense rallied back from another big deficit, using a pair of home runs in the final two frames to complete the comeback on the way to a 5-4 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

The Indians (16-13) got a gutsy performance from Bieber, who kept the game close despite not having his best stuff. The Royals got some assistance from another poor showing by the Indians defense and a clutch fifth inning hit put Kansas City up by four midway through. Despite the chips stacked against them, the Cleveland bats picked up their ace and rallied back for the third time in as many days to steal away a victory in Missouri and move into a three-way tie for first place in the American League Central with the Royals and the Chicago White Sox.

Broken Finger Lands Catcher Perez on Injured List

May 5, 2021 |

In the tenth inning of the April 13 contest between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox, catcher Roberto Perez and reliever James Karinchak were crossed up and the defensive stalwart was hit in his throwing hand. While it certainly caused some to hold their collective breaths, Perez was back in the lineup the next day and continued to man his spot as the key signal caller behind the plate for the Tribe, alleviating concerns for a while.

Three weeks later, Perez is going to take a rest. The Indians announced on Wednesday that the slumping backstop had been placed on the 10-day injured list with a fractured right ring finger. Read More
