Game #99: Detroit Tigers (53-45) at Cleveland Indians (49-49)

July 26, 2012 |

Last night the Indians fell behind early, allowing three runs in the first two innings, and could never catch up, losing to the Tigers 5-3. Derek Lowe had another shaky outing and Asdrubal Cabrera made two errors in the second inning to open the door for the Motor City Kitties. The anemic Indians offense could not scratch back into the game, the closest was when Casey Kotchman hit a two-run homer to cut the deficit to a run.

The loss drops the Indians back to four games behind the Tigers and Chicago White Sox who are tied atop the American League Central Division. Cleveland is also four and a half games behind the final wild card spot, but also has four teams in front of them. This series, and now tonight’s game, remains a very pivotal series for the Indians to make ground in the standings before the trade deadline so that they can decide if they are buyers or sellers before Tuesday.

Game #98: Detroit Tigers (52-45) at Cleveland Indians (49-48)

Tuesday evening the Indians used six dominant innings from Ubaldo Jimenez and a squeeze play bunt by Aaron Cunningham to defeat the Tigers, 3-2. While the game is just one of 162 on the schedule, the three game series has an extra importance in the Tribe’s playoff hopes. This series could determine if the Indians are buyers or sellers before the trade deadline next Tuesday. Last night’s game already had a playoff feel intensity.

The Indians now trail both Detroit and the Chicago White Sox by three games in the American League Central Division standings. The next two games against the Tigers still hold a major determination upon which direction the Indians will go for the rest of the season. Cleveland could be as far as five games out by Friday morning, or within a game or two. The Indians are only 3.5 games back in the wild card race, but have four teams in front of them vying for the final spot.

Game #94: Baltimore Orioles (49-44) at Cleveland Indians (47-46)

July 21, 2012 |

Last night the Cleveland Indians were soundly defeated by the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 10-2. The Orioles tagged Tribe starter Derek Lowe, early and often when his sinker did not sink in the warm summer air. The O’s pounded out five doubles while defeating the Tribe and took control of the contest with a six run third inning.

The Tribe remains only three games back in the American League Central Division because the Chicago White Sox lost to the red-hot Detroit Tigers. However, Detroit has closed the White Sox lead to only a half game over the Motor City Kitties. After today, the Indians could be chasing Detroit instead of Chicago. Meanwhile in the wild card race, the Indians have dropped to two and one-half games behind the Tigers for the final spot, with Baltimore, Tampa, Boston and Oakland all between the Tribe and the final spot.
