Burning River Baseball:
Player of the Game
Pitching 2 perfect innings of relief with 2 strikeouts, Joe Smith won his 2nd Player of the Game this year with a score of 2.54. Close behind him was Jeanmar Gomez with a score of 2.29.
Jeanmar Gomez returned from his suspension with a quality start. Gomez pitched 6 strong innings, allowing just 2 Angel runs. Unfortunately, the one run by the Tribe was not enough to get Gomez the win today. In his 6 innings pitched, Gomez struck out 7 and gave up just 6 hits.
Torii Hunter continues to tear up Tribe pitching. Hunter was today's deciding run with his solo home run in the top of the 4th inning. So far in this series, Hunter is 2-4 + 1-4 with 2 home runs. Hopefully Indians pitching will be able to shut him out in the series finale tomorrow.
The Indians have had problems scoring runs and coming up with the big innings that we saw earlier in the season. The whole team is on a home run slump. The last home run by an Indian player w...

Albert Pujols came to the plate four times Sunday afternoon, and four times he made outs.
Ground ball to third. Ground ball to short. Ground ball to third. Strikeout.

The Cleveland Indians placed left-hander Rafael Perez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left latissimus (back) muscle.

The Angels promoted prospect Mike Trout and released Bobby Abreu on Friday in response to the team’s early-season struggles.
The Angels are 6-14, have lost five in a row, and are currently one of the worst teams in the American League. They’re tied for last in the AL with 13 home runs, tied for the third-fewest runs scored, and third-worst in slugging percentage. They’re hoping...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dan Haren pitched eight strong innings for Los Angeles though Albert Pujols remained homerless as the Angels defeated the Cleveland Indians 2-1 on Saturday.
Torii Hunter hit a solo homer for Los Angeles, which snapped a five-game losing streak after a cold drizzle delayed the start of the game 147 minutes.
Pujols went 1 for 4 with his single during a first-inning...
Okay so it wasn't exactly a perfect return to form for the Angels but when your nine games out of first and eight games under .500, any win is a good one. The offense continued to sputter, with the exception of Torii Hunter. But Dan Haren put the team on his back and delivered the Angels a chance to win just their second series of the year. Baby steps, people, baby steps.Angels...
It is the outfield and first base. Since they signed Johnny Damon, they should check and see if two more fomer Oakland A’s are available: Ricky Henderson and Jose Canseco. They couldn’t do much worse and they would surely generate fan interest.
For first base, how about Richie Sexson? Isn’t it time to once again bring Russell Branyan back?
Mike Trout has made his season debut and Bryce Harper will soon make his big league debut. It is probably too much to handle at once, but we don't have much choice. Let's look at the decision making that went into both and whether or not they will be here to stay.Trout hit leadoff today. The Angels as a team had a .195 average and .250 OBP out of their leadoff hitter up until...

What is it about Progressive Field in 2012 that the Indians offense doesn’t like? After another loss yesterday afternoon, 4-2 to the Kansas City Royals, its as if they are allergic to their home park. I don’t know if it was the poor weather, or reality setting in, but we are back to being frustrated with the production and the lack of clutch hitting.
The contrasts are astounding...
The series against Kansas City didn't end quite the way the Indians wanted as they struggled scoring runs, losing the last two games of the three game series. The Indians are now 2-6 at home and 7-2 on the road. In fact, every team in the AL Central has a losing record at home (Kansas City is worse with an 0-10 record) and a winning record on the road (Cleveland is best at 7...
