Pair of Homers Power Tribe Past Pale Hose; Indians 5, White Sox 2

June 1, 2019 |

After a sloppy mess of a game on Friday night, the Cleveland Indians looked a little bit crisper on Saturday afternoon, using a pair of homers from Carlos Santana and Leonys Martin to pace the club to a 5-2 win over the Chicago White Sox from Guaranteed Rate Field.

The Indians needed to burn through five bullpen arms, but the quintet put up five innings of one-run relief with four strikeouts, two walks, and two hits allowed. They were thrust into earlier action as Jefry Rodriguez had to leave his start early with right lat tightness after allowing one run on two hits with three walks and three strikeouts in four innings of work.

Sox Score in Six Straight Innings to Rout Tribe; Red Sox 12, Indians 5

May 27, 2019 |

The Boston Red Sox rolled to an easy 12-5 win on Monday afternoon, scoring ten straight runs in the middle innings after falling behind 3-0 to the Cleveland Indians.

Things started well for the Indians on Monday, but quickly took a turn in the opposite direction after the Red Sox got their first looks at right-hander Jefry Rodriguez. After two effective innings to open his afternoon, Boston piled up ten runs in a six-inning span to bury the hapless Tribe, which dropped below the .500 mark at 25-26 on the year while losing for the seventh time in the last eight games.

Tribe Routed by Rays as Offensive Woes Continue; Rays 7, Indians 2

May 23, 2019 |

The Tampa Bay Rays used four home runs, including one of an unconventional variety, to rout the Cleveland Indians by a 7-2 final on Thursday night in the series opener from Progressive Field.

The Rays (29-18) took an aggressive approach at the plate against Indians’ right-hander Adam Plutko to jump out to an early lead, then used the middle innings to tack on plenty of insurance while the Cleveland bats were baffled by left-hander Ryan Yarbrough, who was called up by Tampa prior to the game. He worked a career-high seven and one-third innings for his third win of the year. The Indians (25-24) dropped their fourth straight game on their eleven-game homestand and fell further in back of the homer-happy Minnesota Twins in the American League Central. Read More

Big Third Pushes O’s Past Tribe; Orioles 5, Indians 1

May 17, 2019 |

Dylan Bundy and the Baltimore bullpen limited the Cleveland bats to just three hits and a three-run Orioles third off of Indians’ starter Jefry Rodriguez proved to be the difference in a 5-1 win by the visitors on Friday night.

On the first fireworks night of the season, Indians fans had to wait until the postgame display as the bats were cooled on the mid-May spring night from Progressive Field. One night after scoring 14 against Baltimore pitching, the Cleveland lineup combined for just three hits against Bundy, who was able to keep the Indians off-balance with his off-speed options on the mound. The most important factor for Bundy was that he kept the Indians in the yard – something that he has struggled with over recent campaigns. Read More

Tribe Overcomes Early Deficit, Defeats O’s; Indians 14, Orioles 7

May 16, 2019 |

In an ugly back-and-forth game, the Indians and Orioles put up a football-esque score as the host Clevelanders outlasted Baltimore with a five-run seventh to win a 14-7 final on Thursday night.

In the series opener of a four-game set from downtown Cleveland, the Indians and Orioles exchanged leads frequently throughout the night before the Indians used a big rally after the stretch to take a commanding lead. Neither starting pitcher threw particularly well, with the Indians’ Trevor Bauer surviving just five innings while giving up seven runs and striking out an uncharacteristic three, while the Orioles’ Dan Straily made it one out into the four inning while giving up four runs of his own in a no-decision.

Tribe Offense Missing Again in Second Shutout in Three Days; White Sox 2, Indians 0

May 7, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians’ current homestand has taken an unpleasant turn as, for the second time in three days, the Tribe was shut out by a visiting club. This time, it was the Chicago White Sox, who rode a quality start from right-hander Lucas Giolito to a 2-0 victory from Progressive Field.

There were questions aplenty throughout the offseason as the Indians lost name after name from its productive lineup of a season ago, and those concerns have been brought back to the forefront again, even after injuries to two-fifths of the team’s starting rotation had taken some of the focus off of the under-producing starting nine. The offensive inconsistencies have equated to just one run scored over the team’s last 27 innings since Carlos Santana saved the team on Saturday night with an eighth inning two-run home run to capture a come from behind win.

Tribe Rolled Again in Blowout by Sox; White Sox 9, Indians 1

May 6, 2019 |

Trevor Bauer was tagged for a career-high tying eight runs, seven of which were earned, in five-plus innings of work as the Cleveland Indians dropped their series opener with the Chicago White Sox, 9-1, on Monday night.

For the second straight game, the Indians (18-15) offense was shut down while another member of the starting rotation was hit hard. An uncharacteristic outing from Bauer led to him allowing runs in all but one inning in which he appeared, while the White Sox (15-18) scored in six of nine frames in the ball game to win in relatively easy fashion. After being provided with a quick 2-0 lead in the top of the first on a two-run home run from Yoan Moncada, Chicago starter Ivan Nova dealt with traffic on the bases all game long, but managed to strand runner after runner as the Indians failed to come through in the clutch.

Tribe Facing Biggest Test to Date with Four Straight in Houston

April 25, 2019 |

Cleveland will hope for far more productive results this time around as the Indians head to Houston for a 2018 ALDS rematch with the Astros, one swept by the host club a season ago.

The Indians (13-10) scuffled during their recent five-game homestand, dropping two of three against the Atlanta Braves before splitting a two-gamer with the Miami Marlins. The offense got off to a hot start at the beginning of the homestand, but a bullpen implosion late Saturday seemed to leave a lasting bitter taste in the mouths of those on the roster. The Indians come into the series trailing the Minnesota Twins by half a game in the American League Central and will look to improve upon a 6-6 mark on the road this season. Read More

Marlins Return to Progressive Field for Quick Two-Day Stay

April 23, 2019 |

For the first time since September of 2016, the Miami Marlins will come to Cleveland, but their time on the Progressive Field diamond will be restricted to less than 24 hours.

The Indians (12-9) will look to bounce back from a demoralizing end to their series over the weekend with the Atlanta Braves. Facing the club at Progressive Field for just the second time ever in the regular season, they won an 8-4 final in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader before blowing a giant lead in the ninth inning in an 8-7 loss in the night cap. Sunday night’s contest, a nationally televised affair, was all Braves all the way as the visiting club put up nine runs in the first four innings on the way to an 11-5 dismantling of the Tribe and its pitching staff to claim the series.

Braves Bash Bieber and Tribe to Claim Series Win; Braves 11, Indians 5

April 21, 2019 |

In the event that you thought the 11-5 score from Progressive Field was a close game, that final score was hardly indicative of the results as the Cleveland Indians buried themselves under an eleven-run deficit before finding the scoreboard late in an embarrassing shellacking by the Atlanta Braves on Sunday in the series finale.

In a nationally televised game on ESPN, the game was essentially over after two frames. On the heels of a disastrous ninth inning in the second game of Saturday’s double dip, the Indians allowed nine runs in the first four innings on Sunday before scoring some garbage time runs to make the final a little more palatable.

Six-Run Fifth Sends Tribe to Game One Victory Over Braves; Indians 8, Braves 4

April 20, 2019 |

A season-high six-run fifth inning for Cleveland broke a 2-2 tie and gave Corey Kluber the run support that he needed on Saturday afternoon as the Indians defeated the Atlanta Braves by an 8-4 final in game one of the day’s doubleheader.

It was a rare sight to see at Progressive Field, as the Braves made just their second regular season trip to Cleveland. The two clubs, who have met twice in the World Series (1948, 1995), last played in Atlanta in 2016 and have not played a series in Ohio since 2007.

Kluber faced off with Atlanta’s ace, Julio Teheran, in the series opener on Saturday after Friday’s contest was postponed by rain. A pair of late runs off of Kluber spoiled his quality start bid, while Teheran was knocked out before the close of the fifth inning when the Indians used a massive two-out rally to take the lead for good.

Braves Come to Cleveland for Second Time Ever in Regular Season

April 20, 2019 |

Even the addition of yearly interleague play has not substantially increased the number of trips taken to Cleveland by the Atlanta Braves, which visit the north coast this weekend for an abbreviated three-day trip.

The Indians (11-7) return home after salvaging a road trip that had taken a rough turn when the team was swept last weekend in Kansas City by the Royals. Instead of crumbling, the team responded by taking all three from the scorching hot Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park during the week. The sweep was the team’s second of the season, following a four-game defeat of the Toronto Blue Jays earlier in the month. The 5-4 mark on the road trip moved the club to even at 6-6 away from home this season. During the Indians’ brief upcoming homestand, they will look to improve upon a 5-1 record at Progressive Field so far in April. Read More
