Travis Hafner

Carmona and Long Ball Takes Afternoon Tilt; Indians 4, White Sox 3

September 20, 2011 |


The Indians used three home runs and a solid pitching performance from Fausto Carmona to take the first game of a day, night doubleheader, by a score of 4-3. The win gets the Indians back to the .500 mark with just ten games remaining.

Jason Kipnis reached on a bunt single down the third base line in the bottom of the first inning before Travis Hafner homered to right field, giving the Indians an early 2-0 lead. It was Hafner’s 12th home run of the season. It was the first home run of the season for the Tribe against Gavin Floyd, but the first of more to come.

Tribe Down, But Not Out

August 25, 2011 |


By Craig Gifford

Thumpings of 12-7 and 9-2 at the hands of the Seattle Mariners, one of the worst teams baseball, means the Tribe’s dream season and chances of winning the AL Central Division championship have gone up in smoke. Right? ….. Wrong!

It does look bad. Cleveland enters Thursday six games behind the front-running Detroit Tigers, a half game ahead of the Chicago White Sox. With 35 games to play, there is not much room for error on this club at this point. However, even in a dark moment, here are some reasons to stay optimistic.

Battled, Beaten, Pale Hose Survive Tribe; White Sox 8, Indians 7

August 17, 2011 |



By Mike Brandyberry

You either win or lose most baseball games, but Tuesday evening the Indians may very well have finished third in the contest. The Tribe was beaten by both the Chicago White Sox and the umpires during the contest. The White Sox were able to hold off the Tribe 8-7 in 14 innings, the umpires seemed to control the game more handily.

The Indians did themselves no favors, however. After an out was recorded, Asdrubal Cabrera booted a very routine ground ball by Alejandro de Aza. Paul Konerko followed with a base hit to left, but De Aza was able to take third base when Brantley bobbled the ball. Ubaldo Jimenez was able to work out of the inning, allowing only an unearned run.

Tribe Salvages Series Split With Boston; Indians 7, Red Sox 3

August 5, 2011 |


By Mike Brandyberry

After two crushing ninth inning defeats, the Indians were able to take the series finale from the Boston Red Sox by a score of 7-3 at Fenway Park. The victory pulls the Tribe to three games back of the division leading Detroit Tigers.

Carlos Santana led the Indian offense with three hits, a home run and three runs batted in. Santana’s two run home run in the top of the sixth inning to break a 3-3 tie put the Tribe on top to stay. Travis Hafner and Kosuke Fukudome also had three hits each in the contest. The Indians rapped out fourteen base hits as their offense looks to be reviving itself.

Disappointing Defeat; Royals 5, Indians 3

August 1, 2011 |

By Craig Gifford

What loomed as a key homestand just a little over a week ago ended Sunday in defeat, much like the majority of the stretch.

The Indians fell to 52-51, 2.5 games behind the Tigers in the Central Division, with a 5-3 defeat at the hands fo the Kansas Royals Sunday. The loss ended a homestand of promise at a disappointing 2-6. Both wins came in the Tribe’s last at bat, meaning Cleveland was very lucky to even come away with a win over the eight games in front of a Progressive Field crowd.

Indians Not Ready For A Pennant Race

July 30, 2011 |


By Mike Brandyberry

Your schedule might say the Indians have two months left in the season, and the trade deadline is a day away, but the Tribe’s season is over. There will be no playoffs. Hopefully, the team will not make another trade in the next 24 hours.

When the Tribe was off to their 30-15 start, I remember everyone considering their, “What If,” scenarios. What if the Indians just played .500 baseball? What if Shin-Soo Choo gets out of his slump? What if Grady Sizemore gets healthy? What if Carlos Santana’s bat comes around? The team will be in the playoffs.

Cleveland Indians Top 5 Stories Of The First Half

July 12, 2011 |

By Tim Palumbo

O Say Can You C

To start this list I would like to make a tribute to Orlando Cabrera who has recently become a U.S. citizen.  Many of us are born into this great country with the privilege of being an American citizen with no merit needed.  Orlando achieved his citizenship through many years of residency, but we all know he couldn’t have made that happen without his excellence on and off the field.  He is now is a proud citizen of the greatest country on Earth.  Congrats O.C. – it’s been an honor to have you on the Cleveland Indians.


#5 – Travis Hafner Resurgence

Travis Hafner has answered the critics and reassured his fan base that his raw hitting abilities are not a result of performance enhancing drugs.  We can close the book on the debate, and leave it with its proven and logical answer; that his slumping and limited plate appearances in the past few years were the result of the many injuries.  With Pronk’s big bat back in the lineup, and the Indians fighting for command of first place in the AL Central, it feels like ’07 in ’11.

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.
