Bauers’ Cycle Caps Tribe Rout in Motown; Indians 13, Tigers 4

June 14, 2019 |

Jake Bauers hit for the first Indians cycle since 2016 and the offense used a season-high eight-run fourth inning to rout the Detroit Tigers in a 13-4 win on Friday night.

The Cleveland offense enjoyed its series opener at Comerica Park despite losing an early 2-0 lead. After falling behind in the third, the team batted around while putting up eight runs in the fourth and tacked on three more runs for good measure to easily defeat the host Tigers. Six different Tribe hitters had multi-hit games, including a three-hit day from Roberto Perez and a cycle for Bauers, who needed his last at bat in the eighth to become the ninth Cleveland player in the 119-year history of the organization to get a single, double, triple, and homer in the same game.

Indians Spoil Cleveland Leg of Sabathia’s Farewell Tour; Indians 8, Yankees 4

June 8, 2019 |

The Indians spoiled the final regular season start in Cleveland for longtime Tribe southpaw CC Sabathia and claimed another big series win over a playoff caliber opponent on Saturday afternoon with an 8-4 win over the New York Yankees.

Playing in his 19th and final Major League season, the Sabathia farewell tour made its stop in Cleveland with a big milestone on the line for the left-hander. Looking for his 250th career win in his last Progressive Field start (his home for eight big league seasons), Sabathia was good in the early going, but ran into trouble late and was bested by Adam Plutko, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus for a spot start for the Tribe.

Indians Rally Falls Short as Twins Avoid First Sweep of Year; Twins 5, Indians 4

June 6, 2019 | | One Comment

The story of the night was Minnesota’s Max Kepler, as the Cleveland Indians’ late attempt to rewrite that version ran out of ink as the Twins were victorious in their series finale at Progressive Field by a 5-4 count on Thursday night.

Indians starter Trevor Bauer had no answers for the slumping German Kepler, who blasted three home runs on the night for his second career three-homer game (both against Cleveland) to end an 0-for-21 drought at the plate and a 1-for-19 effort against the Indians thus far this season. A pair of solo shots and a two-run job provided the bulk of the offense for the Twins, who saw a suspect bullpen give up a pair of runs late to allow the Indians to make it a ball game. Read More

Rains Only Delay Tribe’s Late Rally; Indians 9, Twins 7

June 6, 2019 |

Rains could only delay an impressive come-from-behind victory by the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night as they used three homers in the final two innings to steal a 9-7 victory from the Minnesota Twins.

The news of the day was bad for the Tribe, as the day’s probable starter, Carlos Carrasco, was placed on the 10-day injured list as the pitcher will step away from baseball for a length of time yet to be determined to address a blood disorder. The Indians went with a bullpen game and fell behind early, but scraped their way back into the game before homering their way to victory after interference by Mother Nature. Read More

Bieber Backed by Four Homers in Needed Win Over Twins; Indians 5, Twins 2

June 4, 2019 |

Progressive Field served as a launching pad on Tuesday night as Cleveland and Minnesota combined for six home runs, but the Indians had four of the blasts to earn a much needed victory over the Twins in a 5-2 final.

Right-hander Shane Bieber’s strong second campaign for the Tribe continued as he pitched into the eighth inning, allowing a pair of solo homers and five hits in total while striking out seven to earn his fifth win of the season. Francisco Lindor figured out rookie southpaw Devin Smeltzer, who was pesky his first couple of trips through the order but had few answers for the Indians’ All-Star shortstop, who put a pair of souvenirs into the bleachers to help pace the Cleveland offense.

Five-Run Rally in Ninth Gets Tribe Back to Even; Indians 7, Red Sox 5

May 29, 2019 |

The Indians saved their best for last on Tuesday night, as Cleveland rallied for two runs in the eighth and five more in an improbable ninth to stun the Boston Red Sox in a 7-5 victory.

On a night with persistent rains and an early delay after steady precipitation in the first inning and a half, the Indians and Red Sox went five scoreless frames before Boston took what appeared to be a commanding 3-0 lead over Cleveland. The Indians cut the deficit to one and missed out on a huge opportunity for more in the eighth, only to see the bullpen give the runs right back. But in a fashion uncharacteristic of their performance this season, the Indians found some Fenway magic of their own in their final at bats, hitting a pair of clutch home runs before claiming the game for good.

Tribe Snaps Skid, Scores Twice Late for Win Over Rays; Indians 3, Rays 1

May 24, 2019 |

A two-run bottom of the eighth pushed the Cleveland Indians past the Tampa Bay Rays by a 3-1 final on Friday night to end a four-game losing streak.

It was hardly the prettiest victory that the Indians could find, but it resembled just the kind of way that Cleveland has needed to perform to eke out victories this year. The Indians used a strong (but short) pitching performance from Shane Bieber, four shutout innings from the bullpen, and a late rally to hold off a tough Tampa Bay squad. Read More

Concussed Perez Leads to Tribe Designating Gonzalez for Assignment

May 22, 2019 |

For the third time this season, the Indians have cut bait with a veteran brought in during the spring to help out the thin offense.

Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was designated for assignment prior to Wednesday’s game between Cleveland and the Oakland Athletics to make room for catcher Eric Haase. The 26-year-old, already on the 40-man roster, was needed in town after Roberto Perez left Tuesday night’s game with concussion-like symptoms.

While Perez passed the concussion tests, he will still be unable to play for several days, leaving just backup backstop Kevin Plawecki on the roster. In need of some extra insurance in the lineup while Perez is unavailable, Haase was recalled from Triple-A Columbus and Gonzalez was the roster casualty to make it happen. Read More

Offensive Eruption Backs Carrasco in Shutout in Chicago; Indians 9, White Sox 0

May 14, 2019 |

The long slumping Indians lineup jumped all over left-hander Manny Banuelos and the White Sox bullpen as Cleveland and Carlos Carrasco cruised to an easy 9-0 victory from Chicago on Tuesday afternoon.

The month of May has not been favorable to the depleted Indians offense, but the team looked to salvage their road trip with a win in the finale from Chicago on Tuesday afternoon. With a 5-7 mark coming in on the day and with three runs or fewer scored in eight of the 12 contests, the Cleveland lineup was in desperate need for a breakout game at the plate.

The starting nine provided exactly that. Read More

Perez Powers Tribe to Win to Avoid Sweep; Indians 5, A’s 3

May 12, 2019 |

There was no last inning celebration this time at Oakland Coliseum, as the Cleveland Indians used a three-run home run from Roberto Perez in the sixth inning to break up a tied ball game and held on for a 5-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday afternoon.

After a pair of walk-off wins in their final at bats on Friday and Saturday in the first two games of the series, the A’s ran out of time and ran out of innings on Sunday, as the Indians finally survived the late inning heroics of the host club. Jefry Rodriguez was good again on the mound, filling in one of the holes in the starting rotation, and the bullpen worked three scoreless frames to give their young right-hander his first win of the season.

Santana’s Big Blast in Eighth Sends Tribe to Win; Indians 5, Mariners 4

May 4, 2019 |

Solo homers won’t hurt too bad, unless you give up four of them in the same game. But despite a Home Run Derby performance from Seattle against Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco, Carlos Santana provided a big drive of his own in the bottom of the eighth, as his two-run shot gave the Indians a 5-4 win over the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

For the fifth time on the season, the Indians (18-13) found a way to outlast the Mariners (18-17) on the diamond. Seattle is now losers of six straight games and has lost five games to Cleveland by a grand total of seven runs this year. The Mariners fell to 0-12 on the season against teams with winning records, while the Indians moved to 9-4 at Progressive Field in 2019. Read More

Indians and Mariners Conclude Season Series in Cleveland

May 3, 2019 |

Early season pressures are beginning to mount for the Indians as they come home to Cleveland to host the Seattle Mariners in the final three meetings between the two clubs this season.

Things are only getting harder for the Indians (16-13), which will need to figure out how to function without two talented starting pitchers missing from the rotation. The Indians return to Progressive Field for a seven-game homestand after splitting their last road trip with three wins and three losses. Cleveland has split its last three series and has not won a series outright since sweeping their three-game set in Seattle in the middle of April. The offensive woes of the club have not improved as the month of April progressed, and after a game in May, the club still ranks last in the league in hits, batting average, slugging, OPS, doubles, and triples, and is the second-worst team in runs scored, on-base percentage, and homers.
