Trevor Bauer

Bauer and Allen Blank Tigers Behind Five-Hit Shutout; Indians 6, Tigers 0

May 16, 2018 |

Trevor Bauer struck out ten Tigers batters and Cody Allen finished a five-hit shutout of Detroit on Wednesday as the Cleveland Indians avoided a sweep with a 6-0 victory on getaway day from Comerica Park.

Coming off of his worst start of the year, Bauer was unhittable at times and used a healthy diet of tough breaking pitches to contain a Tigers lineup that had scored six unanswered runs the night before to upset the Indians to earn a series win. Bauer gave the Tribe eight strong innings on the mound and could have gone back out for the complete game in the ninth, had it not been for the need to get the closer Allen some work in after not appearing on the mound over the last three days.

The Indians got their first look at 27-year-old left-hander Ryan Carpenter, recalled by the Tigers from Triple-A Toledo to make the start on Wednesday. Cleveland greeted him quickly as the club took an early lead. Read More

Tribe Starts Road Trip with Three in Detroit with Tigers

May 14, 2018 |

Times have been tough in Tiger town, but Detroit and Comerica Park will still welcome in the Cleveland Indians for three games for the first time this season.

The Indians (20-19) are coming off of a series win over the Kansas City Royals in their brief three-game homestand, pulling the club back over the .500 mark following a rough 1-4 road trip. While the Tribe is just 5-7 in May (after a 15-12 record to open the year), the offense has been producing, scoring 88 runs, an average of more than seven per game. The problem has been some defensive miscues and a bullpen that has not been firing well, as the pitching staff as a whole has allowed more than five and a half runs per game. Cleveland swept Detroit in four straight games in April, outscoring the Tigers by an 18-5 edge. Read More

Pitching Woes Persist as Royals Rally Past Tribe; Royals 10, Indians 9

May 11, 2018 |

A back-and-forth game between the Indians and Royals went in favor of Kansas City as the visiting club rallied for six unanswered runs to defeat the Tribe, 10-9, from Progressive Field on Friday night.

The Indians (18-19) took an early lead and reclaimed it with a six-run fourth inning, but Cleveland’s pitching could not slow down the Kansas City (13-25) offense, which chipped away with runs in three straight innings to take the lead for good in the seventh on a big home run off of Andrew Miller.

Improved Royals Return to Cleveland for Rematch with Tribe

May 11, 2018 |

Plenty could be written about the unpredictable and unusual schedule that the Cleveland Indians have this season. With that said, the Indians return home after a short five-game road trip for three games with the Kansas City Royals before jetting right back out of town for a much longer road trip than the recently completed one.

The Indians (18-18) salvaged an ugly road trip by taking the finale in Milwaukee on Wednesday afternoon after losing a close contest on Tuesday night. Cleveland began its brief five-game roadie with three straight losses to the New York Yankees. It continued a down May for the club, as they have gone just 3-6 after ending April three games up in the win column. Despite the downward trend in play, they have remained atop the American League Central Division, holding a game and a half lead over Minnesota. The Indians took two of three from Kansas City in a previous series at Progressive Field this year in a low-scoring set that saw the two clubs combine to score just ten runs in the three contests.

Yankees Stay Hot With Walk and Error Aided Four-Run Fifth; Yankees 5, Indians 2

May 5, 2018 |

The New York Yankees won for the 14th time in their last 15 games, capitalizing on three walks and a pair of errors in the fifth inning to defeat Trevor Bauer and the Cleveland Indians, 5-2, from Yankee Stadium.

Saturday proved a vivid reminder of how quickly things can change in a baseball game, whether you are a believer in things like momentum in sports or not. After the Indians took the lead in the top of the fifth, things quickly spiraled out of control for Bauer, who had been perfect through the first four and one-third innings. Three walks, one hit, and one unfortunate double error by Francisco Lindor in the inning turned a one-run Cleveland lead into a three-run deficit and the Yankees would finish off the luck-aided win.

Tribe Makes Only Trip to the Bronx to Battle the Yankees

May 4, 2018 |

It will be no easy task for the Cleveland Indians this weekend as they head to New York to face one of the hottest teams in baseball, the Yankees, in a three-game weekend series.

The Indians (17-14) wrapped up their eleven-game homestand with a disappointing 5-6 mark. They opened with a series split against the Chicago Cubs and closed it with a split with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday. In between, they dropped three of four to the Seattle Mariners, but took two of three from the Texas Rangers. The bats have woken up with the warmer weather of the last week, as the offense has erupted for 49 runs over the last five games. They start the series with a three and a half game lead over Detroit in the American League Central Division. Read More

Four-Run Rally in Eighth Gives Tribe Win Over Texas; Indians 7, Rangers 5

April 30, 2018 |

In what started out as a game dominated by pitching, it would be big scoring efforts in the late innings from both teams and a four-run rally in the bottom of the eighth by the Cleveland Indians that gave them a 7-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night.

The Rangers tied the game at 2-2 late with a clutch two-out home run from Robinson Chirinos against Indians starter Trevor Bauer, who was pitching deep in unusual starting pitching territory with his 122nd pitch of the night. While he had earned the right to take the mound after six innings of one-run baseball, the noticeable absence of Andrew Miller and some less-than-stellar efforts from the relief corps may have led to manager Terry Francona riding the durable arm of his starter a little later than he should have.

Tribe Looking to Turn Around Homestand Versus Texas

April 30, 2018 |

The Indians will look to get back on the right track with a different American League West opponent this week as the Texas Rangers come to Cleveland for their only appearance at Progressive Field this season (weather permitting, of course).

Things did not go well for the Indians (14-12) during their weekend set against the Seattle Mariners as they dropped three of four games to move to just 8-6 at home on the year and 2-4 on their current 11-game homestand. Seeing the struggling Rangers may be well timed for the Tribe, especially with warmer weather parking itself over Cleveland just in time for the series. Last season, the Indians went 6-1 against the Rangers, losing just one tough 2-1 outing on a ninth inning run off of Cody Allen at Progressive Field. Read More

Tribe Backs Strong Bauer Start with Three Solo Shots; Indians 4, Cubs 1

April 25, 2018 |

Trevor Bauer gave the Cleveland Indians six and two-thirds innings of one-run baseball and his offense backed him with three solo home runs in a 4-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night.

It was a fantastic night in downtown Cleveland, where both of its active sports teams put together three-point wins in their respective contests in the Gateway Complex (the neighboring Cleveland Cavaliers won Game 5 of their first round playoff series with the Indiana Pacers on a “walk-off” three-pointer by LeBron James). Bauer gave Tribe fans present another quality pitching performance on the mound, and while the offense struggled to put together much against Chicago starter Jon Lester, they made their swings count when they needed it the most.

Cubs Come to Cleveland for Quick Two-Gamer Against Tribe

April 24, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians will open the interleague portion of their schedule this week as they play host to the Chicago Cubs for the first time since the 2016 World Series.

The Indians (12-8) will welcome the Cubs to Cleveland for the first time since a rain-afflicted Game 7 in the 2016 World Series. Both clubs followed their Fall Classic appearance with shorter-than-expected playoff trips last season, as the Indians were eliminated in the first round by the New York Yankees, while the Cubs were knocked out in five games in the National League Championship Series by the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Indians’ offense remains a source of concern, as the team has performed poorly with runners in scoring position and in general. But despite the inconsistent efforts from the bats, the pitching staff has been strong all around. The staff ranks first in the Majors in batting average against (.201) and WHIP (0.98) and second in ERA (2.57). The starting rotation is first with a 0.98 WHIP, second with a .203 BAA, and third with a 2.58 ERA, while the bullpen is first in WHIP (0.96), second in BAA (.197), and fourth in ERA (2.55).

O’s End Six-Game Skid with Win Over Tribe; Orioles 3, Indians 1

April 20, 2018 |

The Baltimore Orioles ended their six-game losing skid and claimed their sixth win of the season on Friday night, defeating the Cleveland Indians by a 3-1 final.

It was another one of those frustrating nights for the Indians’ offense, which was once again unable to produce with runners in scoring position. The cold bats allowed Dylan Bundy to work around some trouble, and a big two-run fifth by the Orioles would give Baltimore just enough to secure the win. Read More

Indians Make Lone Trip to Baltimore for Four with the O’s

April 20, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians will make their only trip to Camden Yards this season when they play the Baltimore Orioles for four games in a weekend wraparound series.

The Indians (9-7) make their return back to the states after a two-day vacation in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where they were hosted by the “home” Minnesota Twins in a pair of midweek games. Cleveland used strong pitching and four home runs to capture the game one win before losing a tough 2-1 decision in 16 innings on Wednesday night. They have spent more time in the last week not playing than playing, after rain outs on Saturday and Sunday and off days on Monday and Thursday. How much the lack of game activity affects consistency and routine for the club remains to be seen. Read More
