Tribe Looking to End Skid in Tough Series with Twins

September 11, 2020 |

After failing to capitalize in their second-to-last homestand of the season, the Cleveland Indians will head back out on the road for the next nine games, looking to continue good results away from Progressive Field, beginning with a three-game weekend set with the second place Minnesota Twins.

The Indians (26-18) missed out on a big opportunity to pick up ground in the American League Central during the week as Kansas City beat them up three times in a four-game series, leaving the club with a disappointing 3-4 homestand against the Milwaukee Brewers and the Royals. The loss on Thursday dropped the Indians to third place in the division, a game and a half behind the first place Chicago White Sox. Read More

Royals Tag Tribe Bullpen and Defense in Sloppy Showing; Royals 8, Indians 6

September 8, 2020 |

The Kansas City Royals scored five times in the final three innings, overcoming an early 5-3 deficit, and held off a late rally attempt by the Indians in an 8-6 victory from Cleveland on Tuesday night.

The long ball was the story of the early scoring on the night for both clubs, but some extra opportunities provided by the Tribe defense and relief corps allowed the Royals to climb back into the game and steal away a victory from the host Clevelanders in ugly fashion in a contest that could have easily had different results for the Indians.

September 7, 2020 |

The Cleveland Indians tagged Kansas City’s Brad Keller for a season-high five runs and held off the struggling Royals in a 5-2 contest on Labor Day to move back into a first place tie with the idle Chicago White Sox.

Following the lead of Zach Plesac in his second start back in the rotation, the Indians scored a couple of runs early, added on in the middle innings, and tacked on some insurance late to knock off Kansas City in game one of four from Progressive Field this week. Plesac went seven innings, giving the Indians a solid quality start for the fifth straight outing to open his 2020 season. Read More

Royals Return to Cleveland for Four-Game Rematch with Tribe

September 7, 2020 |

For the second straight week, the Indians and Kansas City Royals will be staring each other down on the diamond, but this time, they will do so in Cleveland at Progressive Field in an important four-game set for the Tribe.

The Indians (25-15) kept pace with the first place Chicago White Sox over the weekend. The Sox hold a half-game lead over the Tribe as they prepare for a series with the Pittsburgh Pirates (13-26), while the Indians will host one of the junior circuit’s worst teams in the Royals. Cleveland took two of three from Milwaukee over the weekend, losing a little ground on Chicago, which has won four in a row. Read More

Bieber Stays Perfect with Help From Bullpen; Indians 4, Brewers 1

September 6, 2020 |

Some late insurance runs and a good job by the bullpen picking up Shane Bieber in his shortest outing of the year paced the Cleveland Indians to a 4-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday afternoon.

It was a tale of two starts for Bieber, who breezed through the first three innings before running into some trouble in the fourth and fifth frames in his shortest start of the season. Despite the mixed results, he limited the Brewers to just a run in five innings of work while striking out ten. The bullpen took care of things the rest of the way, while the offense scored two big insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth to give the pitching staff some wiggle room. Read More

Brew Crew Comes to Cleveland for Three-Game Weekend Series

September 4, 2020 |

Hard to believe, the Indians are starting their penultimate homestand of the season as Cleveland plays host to the visiting Milwaukee Brewers for the next three days at Progressive Field.

The Indians (23-14) had a productive road trip in Missouri, taking four of six from the St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals to stay right in the mix atop the American League Central. Entering play on Friday ahead of the Chicago White Sox by a half game, the Tribe appears to have the playoffs in their sights at the end of the month, but now will look to improve their lot in the postseason brackets in the expanded tournament scheduled for this season due to the global pandemic.

Naquin Backs McKenzie With Big Two-Homer Game; Indians 5, Royals 0

September 2, 2020 |

Tyler Naquin had a game to remember on Wednesday, putting the Indians on the board with a two-run homer in the second before erasing all doubt with a three-run blast in the ninth to back Cleveland to a 5-0 shutout of the Royals from Kansas City.

Not to be lost in the shuffle, but the Indians got a quick and quiet six innings of scoreless baseball from Triston McKenzie, who looked much more like the pitcher from his big league debut against the Detroit Tigers than the one that opened the road trip with four tougher innings of work against the St. Louis Cardinals in his second start. McKenzie allowed just three base runners on a pair of singles and a double and protected the early lead provided to him by Naquin. Read More

Plesac Picks Up Where He Left Off as Tribe Rolls Past KC; Indians 10, Royals 1

September 2, 2020 |

Zach Plesac pitched six quality innings in his return to the Cleveland rotation and Franmil Reyes recorded hits in all five of his at bats as the Indians routed the Kansas City Royals by a 10-1 final on Tuesday night.

One night after losing via eighth inning bullpen collapse, the Indians eliminated any doubt early by chasing Royals starter Matt Harvey after retiring just four batters. The Indians put up five runs in the first two innings, using three long balls to do that damage, then matched that production later in the contest on the way to posting 17 hits in an offensive onslaught.

First Place Tribe Heads to Kauffman for Three in Kansas City

August 31, 2020 |

It was a busy day for the Cleveland Indians front office ahead of a three-game weekend series with the Kansas City Royals from the western edge of Missouri.

The Indians (21-13) showed some really good things and some really discouraging things all in one trip to Busch Stadium over the weekend. After shelling the St. Louis Cardinals 14-2 in the series opener on Friday night, the club eked out a 2-1 win in their longest game of the season, a 12-inning marathon on Saturday. Sunday, they were dealt a 7-2 decision as Adam Wainwright went the distance for St. Louis. Read More

Tribe Begins Road Trip with Rout in St. Louis; Indians 14, Cardinals 2

August 29, 2020 |

The Cleveland Indians jumped out to a six-run lead early and added on eight more runs in the middle innings to blow out the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium, 14-2, on Friday night.

Home field was no advantage for the Cardinals in St. Louis as they were shelled for 14 runs on 20 hits, including seven extra base knocks, as the Indians started out their road trip on the right note. Rookie Triston McKenzie was backed with that big run support from the Tribe bats, which pounced on a tough Cardinals pitching staff and sent nine men to the plate in the first inning to stake out an early lead. The offense added two runs in each of the second, fifth, and seventh innings, and used a four-run sixth to erase any doubts of a rally from the host Red Birds. Read More

Sixth Inning Tribe Rally Backs Bieber to Sixth Victory; Indians 4, Twins 2

August 25, 2020 |

The Cleveland Indians put up three runs on the Minnesota bullpen in the bottom of the sixth to back another quality showing from Shane Bieber and defeat the Twins by a 4-2 count on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

Bieber was not quite as crisp as he had been through his first six starts of the season, needing a few innings to settle in and look more like his usual self. But being the pitcher that he has been throughout his brief big league career, Bieber minimized early damage and kept the game close long enough for the Indians bats to finally break through with a big inning in the sixth to provide the decisive runs of the contest.

Twins Use Pair of Oppo Tacos to Knock Off Civale and Tribe; Twins 3, Indians 2

August 24, 2020 |

The big bats of the Minnesota Twins delivered in their usual fashion as a pair of home runs off of Cleveland starter Aaron Civale proved to be the difference in a 3-2 final from Progressive Field on Monday night.

Home runs were the story for both clubs through the first two-thirds of the game as Civale and Kenta Maeda locked into a pitchers’ duel. Both pitchers were coming off of their best outings of the season – Civale allowed a run in a complete game win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, while Maeda carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers.
