Cleveland’s Clase Suspended

May 1, 2020 |

Cleveland’s Emmanuel Clase has found the start to his Indians career delayed even further as the injured reliever has been suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball for a positive test in violation of the league’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

The key returning piece of the offseason trade between Cleveland and Texas that centered around Corey Kluber had already landed on the shelf during spring training with an oblique injury that was going to postpone the start of his Indians career. That situation, in a season already abbreviated by the nation’s response to the coronavirus, worsened on Friday when MLB announced Clase’s positive test for the banned Boldenone, a performance-enhancing substance.

Feller’s Second No-Hitter Arguably His Best No-Hitter

May 1, 2020 |

The end of April has been a notably busy time for no-hitters in Cleveland Indians history. Did The Tribe Win Last Night looks back at the second time Bob Feller achieved this milestone of pitching history in 1946 in a story originally published by Bob Toth on April 30, 2016. – BT

Indians Hall of Fame hurler Bob Feller stunned the New York Yankees at home by throwing his second of three career no-hitters on April 30, 1946.

It was a remarkable feat for Feller, who added his name alongside Addie Joss as the only members of the Cleveland franchise to ever throw two hitless outings in their careers. He would later take that crown all for his own when he threw his third and final no-hitter on July 1, 1951, against the Detroit Tigers, adding it to the first he threw in his career with his memorable Opening Day no-hitter on April 16, 1940 (still the only such game thrown in MLB history).

Most pitchers aren’t even lucky enough to claim one no-hitter, so the notion that Feller had multiple to compare just lays credence to his abilities as a pitcher and his well-deserved spot among the baseball immortals in Cooperstown, New York. Read More

Ferrell Throws No-Hitter With a Little Help from his Friends (and the Official Scorer)

April 28, 2020 |

One of the forgotten gems in Indians’ history was thrown 81 years ago this week as Wes Ferrell blanked the St. Louis Browns and his brother, 9-0. Did The Tribe Win Last Night shares its account of that game through the eyes of Vince Guerrieri in a story originally published on April 27, 2016. – BT

When a crowd of around 4,000 settled into their seats at League Park on April 29, 1931, they couldn’t have expected to see a little bit of history in that day’s game between the Indians and the St. Louis Browns. But they did see it – and not without controversy either.

Cleveland News sportswriter Ed Bang knew history was at hand. Syndicated sportswriter William Braucher told a tale from the press box that Bang – also the official scorer for the Indians – told a St. Louis sportswriter that he was going to see a no-hitter that day. Read More
