Rodon Loses Perfect Game in Ninth, But Completes No-Hitter; CWS 8, CLE 0

April 14, 2021 |

Carlos Rodon etched his name in the Major League Baseball record book, losing a perfect game with one out in the ninth on a hit by pitch before nailing down the final two outs to secure a dominating 8-0 win for the Chicago White Sox over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.

Rodon, scratched from his start on Monday with stomach issues but staring down a place in the historical archives, took the mound in the ninth with 95 pitches thrown to the minimum 24 batters that he had faced through eight. Josh Naylor found himself quickly in an 0-2 hole and grounded to first, losing a bang-bang foot race to the bag to reigning American League MVP Jose Abreu. Two outs away, Rodon got ahead of Roberto Perez with high heat, but went low and in with a back foot slider and caught the toe of Perez’s right cleat, sending the backstop to first base with Cleveland’s first base runner of the night and ending Rodon’s bid to pitch the fourth perfect game in ChiSox history. He went back to the slider to punch out Yu Chang on a questionable pitch in for the second out and got Jordan Luplow to ground his game-high 19th pitch of the inning to third base, where Yoan Moncada fired to Abreu to kickstart a celebration at the mound.

Tribe Completes Sweep Behind Timely Hitting, Tiger Errors; CLE 5, DET 2

April 11, 2021 |

Logan Allen settled down after a rough first inning to give Cleveland five strong innings on the mound while his offense gave him just enough support for his first victory as an Indian in a 5-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon.

Cleveland won its fourth straight game, improving to 5-3 and moving into first place in the American League Central courtesy of a balanced game that saw contributions from all parts of the roster. Allen did his part to keep his teammates in the game before the bullpen contained a Tigers lineup that refused to go away. The Tribe offense chipped in with some early run support and added on two big runs late thanks to some bad throwing decisions by Detroit right fielder Nomar Mazara. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 27 days

The Indians essentially swapped backup catchers with the Boston Red Sox in the offseason.

Kevin Plawecki, a former late first round pick by the New York Mets who wore the number 27 for the Indians in his one season in town in 2019, filled the void behind the plate created when Cleveland traded Yan Gomes to Washington. The Indians added the longtime Met in a trade on January 6, 2019, dealing minor leaguer Sam Haggerty and reliever Walker Lockett for him. Read More

Former Indians Finding Varying Degrees of Success in New Digs

April 15, 2018 |

Over the winter there was some gnashing of teeth as the Cleveland Indians waived good-bye to Carlos Santana, Bryan Shaw and Jay Bruce. Santana and Shaw had been on the club for multiple years, while Bruce was an August trade addition last summer.

Most of the fret was focused around the offense and what losing power hitters the likes of Santana and Bruce would do to the every day lineup’s run-scoring potential. As for Shaw, some Tribe fans were all too eager to see him leave. He was the player, however, that manager Terry Francona seemed the most distraught over losing. Read More

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Reliever Bryan Shaw might not have been the most popular Indians pitcher during his five seasons in a Cleveland uniform and, in particular, in his number 27, but his absence will be felt heavily this season. Read More

Indians Bullpen Took Free Agent Hits, But Hardly Crumbling

December 17, 2017 |

When a baseball team loses a pair of late-inning relievers to free agency, as the Cleveland Indians did this past week, it is certainly cause for some concern and worry. However, it is nowhere near time for Tribe fans to start hitting the panic button when it comes to Cleveland’s bullpen and its prospects for remaining a team strength in 2018.

Watching Bryan Shaw sign with the Colorado Rockies and then Joe Smith ink a deal with the Houston Astros was definitely frustrating for the faithful followers of the Wahoo Warriors. The sky is not falling and the walls are not caving in, however, at the home bullpen at Progressive Field. Read More

Tribe Bullpen Could Look Different Without Shaw Next Season

October 29, 2017 |

How much money are the Cleveland Indians willing to put toward their vaunted bullpen?

That is something Tribe fans may find out this offseason. Arguably the best relief corps in baseball, the team has two key free agents in Bryan Shaw and Joe Smith. The bullpen would definitely have a different feel to it without Shaw, but to what lengths should the Tribe actually go to keep a reliever who is not one of its top two pitchers? Read More
