Game Preview: Cleveland (80-80) vs. Detroit (93-67)

The Indians did not get the outing they had hoped for from Ubaldo Jimenez as he struggled mightily and ended up giving up six runs on nine hits in just five innings of work.  Short time members of the Bullpen Mafia, Corey Kluber and Josh Judy, both struggled as well, giving up four runs each.
The Tigers, on the other hand, got exactly what they needed from Doug Fister.  It was a dominate outing which kept the Indians off balance, off the base paths and off the scoreboard.  Fister threw eight innings of three hit, shut out baseball and struck out nine Indians hitters, walking none in the process.

The Indians closed out the home portion of their 2011 season with a loss to the Minnesota Twins, but even so, with a loss by the Chicago White Sox, Cleveland is guaranteed at least a share of second place in the Central Division.  One win in their last three games would guarantee them sole possession of second as well as a .500 season.
Jim Thome, who may have played his last game at Progressive Field, got one last chance to salute the fans when he pinch-hit in the 8th inning and even played at his original position, 3rd base, for a pitch in the ninth.  While the Indians dropped the game in extra innings, 6-4, it was a fitting end to the regular season at the Jake.

Yesterday was a good day for the Indians as they swept the double header with the Twins by scores of 8-2 and 7-6.  The sixth inning was very good to Cleveland as they scored a total of 11 runs combined in the two games.  It was those sixth frames that pushed the Tribe to victory.

In game one, the Indians were tied at two before exploding with a sac fly, an RBI double, and three RBI singles as 11 players went to the plate in the inning.  Under the moon, the Tribe was down 6-0 when they got five runs on three RBI singles, an RBI double and a fielder’s choice that scored runs and then Shelley Duncan concluded his awesome day with a 2-run double that gave the Indians the lead and eventual victory.

Last night’s contest between the Twins and Indians can only be described as poetic.  On a night that Jim Thome was honored for his 600th home run, and his entire career, he had one of the biggest bats of the night.
After the Twins took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, Thome helped the Tribe get on the board by ripping a double to left field and scoring Kosuke Fukudome.  Later in the game, with Jason Kipnis on base, Thome launched a deep home run to the trees in center which landed 445 feet from Home Plate and tied the game at four.  It would be Carlos Santana‘s walk-off home run that won it for the Tribe in the ninth, 6-5.

Tribe Earns Milestones, Down ChiSox; Indians 11, White Sox 2

September 23, 2011 |

The Indians and White Sox started the evening with a good nature gesture, and ended it with the Tribe reaching several milestones as they won Thursday’s game, 11-2.

At the beginning of tonight’s contest, it looked like it would be a friendly night as two potential Hall of Fame ballplayers met at home plate to exchange the lineup cards for their teams. Of course we’re talking about Jim Thome and Omar Vizquel, two great men who spent the large parts of their careers wearing Chief Wahoo on their heads.

The Indians got the contest under way on the right foot, from the left batter’s box. After Jeanmar Gomez set the Sox down 1-2-3 in the top half, Kosuke Fukudome led off the bottom half of the inning with a home run to right-center field off of Phillip Humber. Jason Kipnis then followed suit by golfing one over the center field wall, just out of the reach of Alex Rios. It was the first time two Indians have led off the game with home runs, at home, in over 40 years.

Ubaldo Jimenez couldn’ hold the lead for the Tribe last night as he was responsible for four of the eight runs that the White Sox scored and by the time the Indians got to the four run mark, Chicago had the game in hand.  Chad Durbin had another rough outing as well as he gave up home runs to Alex Rios and Brent Morel.
Tonight will be the last chance for the Indians to get a win against the White Sox and stay ahead of them in the race for second place in the Central Division.  On the bump for the Tribe will be Jeanmar Gomez (4-2, 3.78, 1.47 WHIP) while Philip Humber (9-8, 3.59, 1.17 WHIP) takes the pill for Chicago.

The Indians and White Sox split yesterday’s doubleheader with the Indians winning the day portion, 4-3, and the White Sox taking the night cap, 5-4.  The Indians used the long ball during the day as Travis Hafner, Kosuke Fukudome and Asdrubal Cabrera all went yard for the Tribe.

The Indians had a chance to get back over the .500 mark yesterday but couldn’t get the job done.  David Huff had another rough outing, going just 2.2 innings and giving up seven hits, nine runs (five earned) and walking three batters.  Between Triple-A and Cleveland, Huff may be getting tired with all of the innings he has ended up throwing.

After a successful weekend against the Minnesota Twins, the Indians start their final home stand of the year a day earlier than expected to make up a game with the Seattle Mariners that was washed out back in May.

The Indians will look to sweep the Twins on their home turf and get back to the .500 mark in the process. Last night, the Tribe drubbed Minnesota by banging out 14 hits which resulted in eight runs in the first two innings. It was more than enough as Jeanmar Gomez pitched 6.2 innings and gave up just seven hits and two runs to improve to 4-2 on his short time with the Tribe.

This afternoon, Justin Masterson (11-10, 3.20, 1.25 WHIP) takes his third crack at earning his 12th win against former Tribe pitcher Carl Pavano (8-12, 4.50, 1.40 WHIP). Masterson struggled in his last start, going just five innings and giving up six runs including three Home Runs.

Manny Acta’s team doesn’t have an “X” next to their name saying they are out of playoff contention just yet, but it’s really just a formality at this point.  The Tiger’s Magic Number is down to 1 meaning a victory by them or a loss by the Indians clinches the Central Division for the Motor City Kitties.
After getting swept away by the Ranger’s and losing the season series 9-1, the Indians are now in Minnesota to battle the last place Twins.  If the Twins stay in last, it will be the first time since 2008 that the Royals will not be the cellar dweller in the Central Division.
