Found September 15, 2012 on Burning River Baseball:
Player of the Game Cody Allen came on in the 7th inning with just one out and the bases loaded in relief of Tony Sipp. Allen was able to strike out the next 2 batters to get the Indians out of the jam. Allen pitched a total of 1.2 innings and struck out all 5 batters he faced. His perfect relief outing gave him a score of 3.48, which was more than enough to give him his 3rd Player of the Game. Feathers Up Despite the threat, the Indians did not get no-hit. They were even able to avoid the shut out after Carlos Santana hit a triple as the Tribe's first hit of the game followed by a Russ Canzler double. Feathers Down The Indians defense was horrible tonight. Three Tribe errors led to 2 unearned runs. The Indians are amongst worst in the league for giving up unearned runs. Though Justin Masterson had his strike out pitch today, he struggled with command. Masterson pitched just 5 innings and walked 4 batters. Play of the Game Carlos Santana hits a triple in the ...

Top 10 Indians Closers

As you may have noticed if you read the site regularly, I like to make lists. As a separate part of the All-Time Indians section of the site I will be adding position by position rankings of the top ten Indians of all time. Rather than writing individual bios for each player on this page, each name will be linked to the bio I have already written for them, assuming they have one...

Hope for the Hopeless: Cleveland Indians

In our Hope for the Hopeless series, we take a look at all of the teams in the league that finished under .500, and examine what their fans can be optimistic about after a disappointing 2012 season. Unlike a lot of teams that we're going to be profiling in this series, the Indians really aren't a total lost cause for the next few seasons. As I mentioned earlier today...

End of Season Post-Mortem: Cleveland Indians

It's a double dose of the AL Central! Please welcome the Cleveland Indians to the Post-Mortem arena. If you're new here (which about 90% of our reader base is in comparison to last year), here's a brief explanation: after a team is eliminated from the playoffs, we're going to put their season under a microscope and look at just what the hell went wrong, what...

Akron Aeros Storm Back to Win Eastern League Championship

On the verge of elimination, a Cleveland-based team found a way to win a league title. Sounds like a strange dream that could never happen, eh? Well, that’s exactly what occurred this week in the Double-A Eastern League for the Akron Aeros. Trailing 0-2 in the Division Series, the Aeros rallied to win three straight home games over the rival Bowie Baysox. Akron then jumped out...

Sunday Tribe Notes: Indians Look to Avoid Another Sweep, Aeros Claim Eastern League Title Again

Isn’t it unbelievable to consider that the Cleveland Indians are 9-8 against the Detroit Tigers this season? Think of all of the things that had to go right for that to occur. Yes, it kind of makes some sense when you hear that Detroit has won five of seven since the Indians’ latest six-week nose dive, but it’s still an unbelievable fact. It means that even if the Tribe falls...

Box Score: Indians 7, Tigers 6

The Indians avoided the sweep this afternoon in dramatic fashion by getting to Tiger closer Jose Valverde in the bottom ninth to win the game 7-6. After a RBI triple by Carlos Santana that scored the tying run in Jason Kipnis, Valverde intentionally walked Michael Brantley and Ezequiel Carrera to load the bases with one out to face Lonnie Chisenhall. Chisenhall then lined one into...

Chisenhall caps personal comeback with his first walk-off hit

It's been a long road back for Cleveland Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall, and Sunday he took another big step by stroking the first walk-off hit of his major league career. Chisehnall's RBI single with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Indians to a 7-6 win over the Detroit Tigers. Chisenhall spent two months on the disabled list earlier this...

Box Score: Tigers 5, Indians 3

Anibal Sanchez nearly no-hit the Indians today. Carlos Santana ended that bid with a two-out triple in the 7th inning that Austin Jackson slammed into the wall trying to catch. The Indians scored two in the seventh and one more in the eighth, but Justin Masterson ran his pitch count up and failed to make it out of the fifth inning, as the Indians fell 5-3 in game two of the series...

Series Preview: Tigers at Indians 9/14-16

Going into a three game series with Detroit, the Indians guarantee they will only be losing to teams from the Central Division for the rest of the year. Since the Indians are out of it and I hate the idea of a team trying for a high draft pick, I like to set personal goals for Indians just to make the season a little more interesting. A few of these I have already stated, like Masterson...

Boxscore: Indians 5, Rangers 4

Box Score: Tigers 4, Indians 0

So this one was pretty much over in the first inning, right? Justin Verlander against Corey Kluber isn’t really fair, and after Detroit scored 2 in the first, then 2 more in the second, this one was over. Kudos to the bullpen — Chris Seddon and Frank Herrmann — at least, for settling the score at that. But Verlander went a very solid seven innings and the abysmal Indians offense...

9/16 Game Recap: Tigers 6 - Indians 7

Player of the Game Shin-Soo Choo, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Russ Canzler all battled to be today's Player of the Game, but it was Cabrera who came out on top. Asdrubal walk, hit 2 singles, scored 2 runs, and stole a base to combine for a score of 2.52.
