Duffy and Royals Spoil Tribe’s 2021 Home Debut; KC 3, CLE 0

April 5, 2021 |

Danny Duffy and the Kansas City bullpen shut down the Cleveland bats and the always dangerous Whit Merrifield lived up to his hype on Monday as the Royals spoiled the Indians’ Home Opener behind a three-hit 3-0 shutout.

Duffy entered the day with a 4-12 career record against Cleveland and just a 3-8 mark at Progressive Field through his first 14 trips to the mound there, but he put together one of his better efforts against the inconsistent bats of the Tribe in the opening game of a quick two-game set between the two clubs. To their credit, the Indians had numerous hard hit balls throughout the afternoon, but few found their way past the gloves of the Royals defenders. Read More

The bats of the Cleveland lineup woke up just in time on Sunday as the Indians scored eight unanswered runs over the final four innings to defeat the Detroit Tigers by a 9-3 count.

Aaron Civale drew the starting nod in the series finale against second-year left-hander Tarik Skubal with the task of sending the Tribe back to Ohio in the win column for the first time in 2021. He did his part, scattering just two hits over seven quality innings of work, but he needed some help from his friends to get the job done. Read More

Tribe Bats Fall Flat Again in Defeat in Detroit; DET 5, CLE 2

April 3, 2021 |

It was another tough day at the plate for Cleveland as a quality start by Zach Plesac was wasted in a 5-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Saturday afternoon.

After putting up just two runs in support of a quality start from Shane Bieber on Thursday, the offensive efforts fell short again in game two of the 2021 campaign as the concerning Cleveland lineup card had little punch to it again. Plesac kept the game close in six innings of work on the mound, but the Tigers broke the game open late with a three-run seventh to erase all doubt. Read More

No Fooling Tigers as Tribe Drops Opener in Detroit; DET 3, CLE 2

April 1, 2021 |

A late rally fell short for the Cleveland Indians on Thursday afternoon as the Detroit Tigers claimed a 3-2 victory in the 2021 Major League Baseball season opener from Comerica Park.

The Tigers dealt Shane Bieber a loss in his first start of the season, something that required ten outings and happened just once during his historic 2020 campaign. On a day with a first pitch temperature of 31 degrees and flurries abound, Detroit jumped out to a first inning lead, padded it in the next frame, and kept the pedestrian Cleveland offense at bay until the final frame of the day.
