Luplow Caps Comeback With Two-Run Walk-Off Blast in Ten; CLE 5, MIN 3

April 26, 2021 |

Jose Ramirez tied the game with a solo homer in the eighth and Jordan Luplow walked it off in the bottom of the tenth as his two-run home run to start the inning gave the Cleveland Indians a big 5-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night.

The struggling Cleveland offense stepped up in the nick of time in the series opener between the Indians and Twins on Monday, getting Zach Plesac off of the hook after seven and two-thirds quality innings on the mound in an encouraging bounce-back effort from the young right-hander. He saved the Tribe’s bullpen and kept the game close long enough for his offensive teammates to do some late damage against the Twins bullpen, riding a pair of big flies late to steal away a needed win.

Four-Run Sox Sixth Leads Chicago Past Cleveland; CWS 8, CLE 5

April 20, 2021 |

Cleveland finally found its way into the hit column against Chicago’s Carlos Rodon, but could not slow down the dangerous White Sox lineup as the Southsiders used four long balls in the middle of the game to knock off the host Indians, 8-5, on Tuesday night.

In his first start since throwing a no-hitter last Wednesday, Rodon was far less effective on the mound, but the Tribe bats were unable to make a lot of noise on a chilly night from Progressive Field. Zach Plesac, who was bashed early and often in his prior start against Rodon last week, allowed a pair of early homers before a messy sixth inning left his ERA still bloated after back-to-back rough outings.

Tribe Avoids Sweep as Bats Back Bieber with Three Blasts; CLE 6, CIN 3

April 18, 2021 |

Shane Bieber limited the Cincinnati offense to three runs over eight quality innings and Cleveland backed its ace with three long balls as the Indians avoided a series sweep with a 6-3 win over the Reds on Sunday afternoon.

Bieber picked up right where he left off his last time out, pitching deep into the ball game and giving his team a chance to win. Unlike his last start, which required nine shutout innings from him before victory came in extras, Bieber got some early run support to back his 13-K effort on the rubber. Read More

Tribe Uses Five Homers to Back Civale, Tame Tigers; CLE 11, DET 3

April 10, 2021 |

The home run ball continued to be the biggest source of offense for Cleveland on Saturday, as the Tribe bats blasted five balls over the outfield walls on the way to an 11-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers from Progressive Field.

Aaron Civale did not need much help on the mound, but he got plenty of it anyways as the bats took advantage of second-year southpaw Tarik Skubal and the Detroit bullpen. Read More

Bats Erupt as Tribe Avoids Season-Opening Sweep to Tigers; CLE 9, DET 3

April 4, 2021 |

The bats of the Cleveland lineup woke up just in time on Sunday as the Indians scored eight unanswered runs over the final four innings to defeat the Detroit Tigers by a 9-3 count.

Aaron Civale drew the starting nod in the series finale against second-year left-hander Tarik Skubal with the task of sending the Tribe back to Ohio in the win column for the first time in 2021. He did his part, scattering just two hits over seven quality innings of work, but he needed some help from his friends to get the job done. Read More

Tribe and Yankees Renew Postseason Rivalry in Best-of-Three Wild Card Series

September 29, 2020 |

The Cleveland Indians make their return to the postseason this week as the fourth seed in the eight-team format specially implemented for this pandemic-shortened season. The Indians will host the series in Cleveland for the only time allowed in the bracket system, with the rival New York Yankees coming to town for a battle to two wins in the three-game American League Wild Card Series.

The Indians (35-25) used some home field magic over the course of the last week of the regular season, jumping from the seventh seed to the fourth seed on the final day of play with a big come-from-behind victory on Sunday to take two of three from the Pittsburgh Pirates on the heels of a four-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox. The better results down the stretch earned the team the right to host the first round Wild Card Series from Progressive Field, as opposed to having to travel for road matchups in Chicago, Minnesota, or Oakland that may not have been as favorable for the Tribe.

Luplow Launches Game-Winner to the Porch to Walk Off Sox; Indians 3, White Sox 2

September 23, 2020 |

Jordan Luplow played the hero on Wednesday, giving the Cleveland Indians their fourth consecutive win and their second straight walk-off victory in a 3-2 final over the Chicago White Sox.

With a history of mashing against the White Sox, Luplow stepped to the dish against Chicago left-hander Gio Gonzalez in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied, 2-2. After a grounder to short by pinch-hitter Delino DeShields, Gonzalez fell behind 3-0 to Luplow, who had struck out in each of his first three at bats on the night. The next offering to the Tribe outfielder was a meatball down the middle and Luplow mashed it onto the Home Run Porch with a no-doubt-about-it walk-off shot, giving the Indians the 3-2 win.

Seven of Luplow’s 17 homers with the Indians in the last two seasons have come against the White Sox. It was his first career walk-off homer. Read More

Carrasco Dominates, Ramirez Destroys Detroit in Rout; Indians 7, Tigers 4

September 20, 2020 |

The final score was hardly indicative of the game, as Carlos Carrasco allowed just one hit over seven shutout innings of work and Jose Ramirez went yard twice as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Detroit Tigers, 7-4, on Sunday afternoon.

The Indians (29-24) used a stellar performance from Carrasco and a rare offensive outburst to take care of the Tigers (22-30) for the seventh time in ten chances in 2020. The Tribe bullpen blew the shutout in the eighth inning as the Tigers made things a little more interesting than they should have been, but the relief corps ultimately closed the door on Detroit for the season with an overall lopsided result while reducing the team’s magic number for a playoff berth down to three.

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

Tribe and Twins Match Up in Cleveland for Key Midseason Series

August 24, 2020 |

The Cleveland Indians have been the epitome of inconsistency this season. This weekend was a prime example of that as the Tribe dropped two of three to the Detroit Tigers in matchups that were on paper favorable for the second seeded club in the American League Central.

The Tigers, who were 9-14 entering the series, came into Cleveland in bad shape and left with a confidence boost after putting up 23 runs against the Indians’ vaunted pitching staff to bring an end to a 20-game losing streak against the Tribe coming into the weekend. Now, the Indians will have to contend with the first place Minnesota Twins over the next three days. Read More

Tigers Use Long Ball to Chase Carrasco, Defeat Tribe; Tigers 7, Indians 4

August 23, 2020 |

Three Detroit long balls and strong pitching until the ninth paced the Tigers to a 7-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon.

It was another short outing for Carlos Carrasco, who was shelled in the fourth inning by the Tigers in a quick extra base hit barrage that turned a tie game into a three-run Tribe deficit. Carrasco left after just three and one-third innings and turned the game over to Logan Allen, who allowed the visiting club to tack on three more runs, which loomed large in the ninth when the Indians rallied for three runs in what was by that point a six-run hole.

It was too little too late as the Indians dropped a series they should have won to fall to 17-11 on the season. Read More

August 8, 2020 |

One game removed from taking the night off at the plate, the Cleveland Indians bats burst out for six runs in the fourth inning to pace Zach Plesac and the Tribe to a 7-1 win on Saturday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The Indians added to their quality start tally, posting their 14th in 16 games as Plesac provided Cleveland with six shutout innings on the mound. The bats needed a few innings to get going, but they ultimately did in a much-needed outburst at the plate, making up some for a scoreless performance the night before in a 2-0 loss to the White Sox in the series opener from Chicago.
