Game Recap

A Grand Finale; Indians 5, Blue Jays 4

July 8, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

Thursday night was a grand night for the Cleveland Indians and their fans.

With one out and  the bases, the Tribe trailed the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1 in the bottom of the ninth. Travis Hafner stepped to the plate and found a pitch to his liking. He hammered it to deep right field, sending the crowd of 18,816 into delirium and home happy.

After struggling to put anything together on offense for eight innings, the Tribe entered the home half of the ninth trailing 4-0. They were looking like sure losers in the first of a four-game series with the Blue Jays.

Masterson Masterful In Win Over Yankees; Indians 5, Yankees 3

July 7, 2011 |

By Ryan Hohman

The two storylines headed into the rubber match of this three game series with the New York Yankees were Derek Jeter‘s pursuit of his 3,000th career hit and Phil Hughes coming off the DL to make his first start since April 13th, but Justin Masterson stole the show by throwing eight scoreless innings in the Cleveland Indians 5-3 win over the Yankees.

Despite rumors that Asdrubal Cabrera would be sitting out this game after tweaking his ankle in last night’s 9-2 loss, the All-Star was in the lineup playing second base and singled in his first at bat after Michael Brantley drew a leadoff walk. Travis Hafner followed Cabrera’s one-bagger with a hit of his own to score Brantley. Cabrera then came around to score on a wild pitch and fielding error by Yankees catcher Russell Martin, giving the Tribe an early 2-0 lead.

Experience Over Youth; Yankees 9, Indians 2

The game was billed as the Battle of CCs, but it was more the story of The Master and The Apprentice as Carlos Carrasco was touched for five runs in the second inning and C.C. Sabathia cruised to lead the Yankees to a 9-2 victory Tuesday evening.

The game turned when the Yankees had two on and one out when a ground ball was hit to Asdrubal Cabrera. Cabrera made the throw to Cord Phelps, but Phelps could not make the easy relay to first. The throw bounced several feet in front of first base. While Phelps should have made a good throw, it would be safe to expect Carlos Santana to pick the throw from the dirt.

Kearns Leads Tribe In Come From Behind Win; Indians 6, Yankees 3

July 5, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Austin Kearns issued the punishing blow for the Cleveland Indians, as they came from behind to defeat the New York Yankees, 6-3. Josh Tomlin pitched seven innings allowing only two runs to earn his tenth victory of the season for the Tribe. Tomlin retired 18 consecutive Yankees at one point of the game.

Tomlin was the story early, throwing a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but as has been the story for much of the last two months, the Indians could not muster any run support. Mark Teixeira broke up the no-hit bid, then Robinson Cano followed with an infield hit before Nick Swisher lined an opposite field double to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead. With only two hits through six innings, the Indians offense looked to be over-matched by A.J. Burnett.

Talbot’s Slow Start Costs Tribe; Reds 7, Indians 5

July 4, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Shelley Duncan gave the Cleveland Indians a fast start with a two-run home run in the second inning, but Mitch Talbot continued his inconsistent ways and allowed ten hits and six runs over just four innings, as the Indians lost the season finale to the Cincinnati Reds, 7-5. Talbot has struggled early in games all season.

Talbot was spotted a 2-0 lead when Shelley Duncan hit his third home run of the season. Duncan was the hitting star of the day for the Tribe, going 3-4, in addition to his two RBIs, however, Talbot never had control or command of his pitches. Talbot missed several spots and was hurt by the Cincinnati offense. The Reds offense was ignited by Chris Heisey‘s home run in the second inning. The Reds were able to post three in the second inning, and three more in the fourth before chasing Talbot from the game.

Bullpen Mafia Buries Reds; Indians 3, Reds 1

July 3, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Michael Brantley hit a three run home run and the bullpen only gave up one run, over seven innings as the Indians defeated the Reds, 3-1 on Saturday afternoon. The Indians are now 5-0 on the season against the Reds and will look for the sweep in Sunday’s series finale.

Lou Marson started the top of the third inning with a base hit. Fausto Carmona attempted to sacrifice Marson to second, but Scott Rolen’s attempt to cut down Marson resulted in pulling second baseman Brandon Phillips off the base. Meanwhile as Carmona stumbled running to first and face planted as he crossed the bag. It appeared he pulled his right quadricep and was forced to leave the game. Michael Brantley proceeded to hit his sixth home run of the season and gave the Tribe a 3-0.

By Craig Gifford

During a June swoon that saw the Indians’ bats fall deafly silent, the offense busted out in a big way Friday night with an 8-1 pasting of the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ballpark.

The win moved the Tribe (43-37) back into sole possession of first place by half a game, as the Detroit Tigers fell to the San Francisco Giants last night.
