Game Recap

Bauer and Ramirez Help Tribe Take Series; Indians 3, Astros 1

August 24, 2014 |

The scrappy Indians just keep finding ways to win.

Today, it was a pair of midseason call-ups that helped the Indians to a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros. Jose Ramirez logged three hits—giving him seven in the series—while Trevor Bauer tossed shutout baseball into the seventh inning. Each seem to be finding their roles on the new-look Indians. Sunday the Tribe mustered enough offense, using a pair of two-out base hits, to come back and win the series with the Astros after dropping the first game on Friday.

Cleveland had a chance to crack the scoreboard in the second inning, but could not get the timely hit. Tyler Holt started the inning with an infield hit off Brett Oberholtzer and advanced to second base on his throwing error. Mike Aviles grounded to third base, but third baseman Matt Dominguez opted to try and cut down Holt at second. Holt dove back into the bag safely and the Indians had a pair on with just one out. However, Lonnie Chisenhall and Roberto Perez each struck out to leave the runners stranded.

Late Errors Cost Tribe Another Game; Astros 5, Indians 1

August 22, 2014 |

What started so pretty, turned ugly in a hurry Friday night.

Carlos Carrasco and Brad Peacock—two unlikely starters to match up in a pitcher’s duel—did just that for five innings before a battle of the bullpens ensued. However, fundamental mistakes by the Cleveland Indians on the base paths and in the field were the difference in victory and defeat. Cleveland squandered scoring opportunities in the late innings before shoddy defense gave the game away, resulting in a 5-1 defeat.

Peacock and Carrasco hooked up in quite a pitcher’s duel that might still be unexpected. Peacock allowed just one hit in the first four innings, while Carrasco’s only hit allowed was an infield hit to Jake Marisnick in the third inning. Peacock—a struggling starter—had only lasted five innings or more and allowed just two runs or less, twice in the last two months.

Offense Falls Flat in Series Finale; Twins 4, Indians 1

August 21, 2014 |

Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber entered Thursday afternoon’s game against the Twins having not allowed more than two earned runs since the All-Star break. He had not lost a game since June 30.

All of that changed at Minnesota’s Target Field as the Twins got to Kluber for three earned runs in seven innings. Combined with a Tribe offense that struggled to do much against Twins No. 1 starter Phil Hughes, Kluber suffered defeat for the first time in almost two months. The Indians lost the third and final game of their road series 4-1. Read More

Gomes, Holt and Bullpen Overcome Early Deficit; Indians 7, Twins 5

August 19, 2014 |

As a thunderstorm swept through northeast Ohio, cable and satellite dishes may have made Tuesday night’s Indians’ game even harder to believe.

Because if your satellite cut out after Trevor Bauer allowed five runs in the first inning to Minnesota in the first six hitters, it may have been quite a surprise to find out the Tribe chipped away against Kyle Gibson to come back and win 7-5 to take the first game of the series in Minnesota. After falling behind early, Cleveland used three hits from Yan Gomes and a clutch, pinch-hit double from Tyler Holt to score in four different innings for the comeback win.

Gausman Stifles Tribe Bats in Finale; Orioles 4, Indians 1

August 17, 2014 |

It’s a matchup the Orioles and the Indians could be seeing for the next decade.

In a matchup of young, starting pitchers trying to find their way at the big league level, Danny Salazar and Kevin Gausman matched up in an early pitcher’s duel. Neither pitcher was as sharp as they would like, but each gave solid efforts. It was Gausman, however, who only allowed a pair of hits to Cleveland and that helped pace the Orioles past the Tribe 4-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Gausman didn’t have an easy afternoon, despite allowing just two hits. He had to work around baserunners, courtesy of the four free passes he allowed. Salazar was much more accurate, the stronger Baltimore offense just found ways to get base hits. For most of the afternoon Salazar was able to work out of the jam until his effort—and the Tribe bullpen—fell apart in the sixth inning. The loss was another chance to make ground in the Wild Card race, but instead they lose ground in the divisional race.

Carrasco Shines in Second Straight Start; Indians 6, Orioles 0

August 16, 2014 |

Two former Indians’ starting pitchers took the mound Saturday night. One looked very recognizable while the other looked like something Tribe fans have never seen before.

After five years of trying to make Carlos Carrasco fit in the Indians rotation the Tribe jettisoned him to the bullpen in late April. But in their what could be his final chance, Carrasco shined brighter than he ever has, tossing seven shutout innings without allowing a walk. Cleveland used Carrasco’s potential coming-of-age start, along with home runs from Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley to take advantage of early wildness from Ubaldo Jimenez to defeat the Orioles 6-0, Saturday evening at Progressive Field.

Tribe Falls in Extras to Split Twin Bill: Diamondbacks 1, Indians 0

August 14, 2014 |

Not only were fans treated to a true doubleheader – buy one ticket, see two games – Wednesday, but the twin bill finished with some bonus baseball.

But while Tribe starter Josh Tomlin and the Indians bullpen combined to give up one run to the Diamondbacks in 12 innings, the Indians offense couldn’t push one across as the Tribe lost 1-0 for the twin bill and series split. The Diamondbacks leave town and the Tribe has Thursday off before starting a three-game set against the Orioles.

Carrasco Comes Up in Big Spot for Tribe; Indians 4, Yankees 1

August 10, 2014 |

It’s been a while, it’s been quite a while, actually.

But for the first time in over three years, Carlos Carrasco strode to the mound as a starting pitcher and won a game for the Cleveland Indians. After a season lost to Tommy John surgery and two season’s of failed starting attempts and a move to the bullpen, Carrasco looked his best when expectations may have been their lowest. With a rotation in shambles, the Indians turned back to Carrasco for what could be his last shot as a starter in the big leagues and he out-pitched the Yankees Hiroki Kuroda on Sunday afternoon, resulting in a 4-1 win for the Indians.

Carrasco’s surprising gem, combined with some small ball on Sunday gave the Indians a win in the three-game, weekend series against the Yankees. Jason Kipnis was the catalyst offensively, getting on base three time, and Jose Ramirez and Michael Brantley helped get him over and in. Kipnis scored three of the Indians’ four runs.

Kluber Shines on New York Stage, Sets Down Yanks; Indians 3, Yankees 0

August 9, 2014 |

When Corey Kluber pitches, everything is a little better.

It seems the Indians walk a little taller and with a little more confidence as their 2014 ace takes the mound. Saturday afternoon, the sun shined bright, the Indians defense played well and the offense did enough to aid Kluber—who pitched a tough six inning effort against the veteran saavy New York Yankees.

Kluber and three hits from Jose Ramirez—including his first big league home run—was enough to help the Indians win 3-0 over the Yankees on national television. The win snaps a four-game losing streak for the Indians, dating back to Kluber’s last start five days ago.

Free Passes Allow Yanks to Walk to Victory; Yankees 10, Indians 6

August 8, 2014 |

It started poorly and only got worse Friday night for the Cleveland Indians.

Trevor Bauer continued his road struggles and lacked control, while his defense continued to give the New York Yankees all the chances they needed to take advantage and coast to a 10-6 win. The Yankees scored five runs in the first inning off Bauer, then five more in the sixth against the weak, underside of the Tribe bullpen while former Indian Esmil Rogers was effective in a spot start for New York. Each time the Indians would scrape back into the game, they’d give the Yankees more runs via poor defense or walks.

The Indians played from ahead—if only for a moment—when they took a quick lead in the first inning. Jason Kipnis started the inning with a double to left field. Mike Aviles tried to bunt him to third base and could not, instead grounding to shortstop. After Michael Brantley lined out, Carlos Santana laced a two-out single to center field, scoring Kipnis and giving the Indians a 1-0 lead.

Defense Allows Cincinnati to Run by Tribe; Reds 4, Indians 0

August 7, 2014 |

Finding good, Indians starting pitching has been tough this season.

The Indians found a good start from T.J. House, however, they didn’t support it with solid defense or timely hitting. Instead, Homer Bailey set down the Tribe while Cincinnati took advantage of defensive miscues and made the most of timely hitting to win 4-0. The victory gives the Reds a win in the four-game series this week and the Ohio Cup.

The Indians were held to just five hits by Bailey and the Reds. Meanwhile Cincinnati used three, two-out base hits to take control of the game. Cleveland’s defense struggled, like it has all year, but Cincinnati was able to use the speed of Billy Hamilton to make the Indians suffer when they created a mishap. The Indians had three errors in the game and a misplayed ball in the outfield that was not ruled an error.

House Rises to Occasion as Tribe Blanks Texas; Indians 2, Rangers 0

August 2, 2014 |

A game where the Indians scored two runs and committed two errors is usually a recipe for disaster.

But two runs were all Cleveland needed, blanking Texas 2-0 before a crowd of 28,285 on Jim Thome Night. The slugger, who hasn’t played baseball since 2012, signed a one-day contract to officially announce his retirement as an Indian. A statue of him pointing his bat was unveiled Saturday in center field.
