Chicago White Sox
He owed us after Sunday’s three-error debacle. He knew it, we all knew it. And with one mighty swing of the bat, Asdrubal Cabrera got his redemption.
A long night of ill-fated run-scoring opportunities looked like a painful loss as the Indians headed to the bottom of the 10th inning. Tribe starter Josh Tomlin was long gone at this point, despite putting together a solid performance for six and two-thirds innings (one run on six hits). Gone too were the Tribe’s “Big Three” in the bullpen, Joe Smith, Vinnie Pestano, and Chris Perez. All had entered the game and had been replaced. Also missing was the air that had come out of Progressive Field after the Reds scored a run in the top of the 10th thanks to two wild pitches with two outs from left-hander Nick Hagadone (the second of which Carlos Santana has to come up with in that spot. Breaking balls in the dirt happen all the time).
Reds flame-throwing close Aroldis Chapman entered the game with a 1.06 ERA. He had 59 strikeouts in 34 i...

Cleveland closer Chris Perez was on Intentional Talk on the MLB Network yesterday talking about Cleveland fans, the Bullpen Mafia, and his normal routine. He was confronted by the video of him throwing up after the game. Interestingly enough, he admitted that after he gave up the hit to Freese, he almost lost it out of his nose. Classic. A really good watch actually.
Asdrubal Cabrera had the worst game of his major league career Sunday, committing three errors that led to eight unearned runs and also getting reprimanded by his manager for not running hard to first base. The Cleveland Indians shortstop had one of the best games of his career Tuesday. Cabrera clubbed a walk-off, two-run home run with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning...

Home plate umpire Derryl Cousins tripped over the foot of Cleveland Indians catcher Carlos Santana while trying to follow a play during Tuesday night's game at Progressive Field against the Cincinnati Reds. Your browser does not support iframes. In the top of the sixth inning, Reds shortstop Zack Cozart hit a grounder down the third base line that ended up curving foul. Cousins...
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer Not long after Johnny Damon joined the Indians, he gave each of his new teammates a gift - customized bathrobes with their names and jersey numbers embroidered on the back.
Since then, Damon's handed out advice, and lately he's been delivering clutch hits.
After a slow start, the 18-year veteran outfielder...
The Cleveland Indians got some great pitching from Josh Tomlin and the Indians were tied with the Cincinnati Reds when their all-star short stop stepped up his offense in the tenth inning and belted a two run shot over the wall and into the stands to get his Cleveland Indians a 3-2 win over the Reds. The Indians have certainly turn the tables on the Reds who beat the Indians in all...

Scott Rolen was back from his lengthy stint on the DL, and he had his best game of the season last night. Not that that the bar was set too high this year, but he did go 2-for-4 with 2 RBI...
Pitchers Mat Latos and Derek Lowe opposed each other for the second time in a week, and much like their last game, a controversy ensued.
The Indians beat the Reds 10-9 on Monday in the first of a three-game series in Cleveland, and Latos thinks some funny business was going on.
The Reds starter got hammered for seven runs including three home runs over four innings, and he implied...
CLEVELAND (AP) - No matter how well the Cincinnati Reds have played, they continue to struggle in Cleveland.
The Reds look to avoid a sixth consecutive road loss to the Indians when the interleague rivals continue their series Tuesday night.

The Indians lost to Pittsburgh 9-5 on Sunday. It was the Indians' seventh loss in their last 10 games. They seem to be having breakdowns in different areas every day.
Sunday it was the defense, as shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera committed three errors, including two on one play, which gift-wrapped eight of the nine runs scored by the Pirates. Ironically, Cabrera is one of the Indians...
Tuesday was not a bad picking day. There were some surprises. Asdrubal Cabrera hitting a
walkoff on Aroldis Chapman was one. The Oakland A's getting great work from Brandon
McCarthy was another. The Cubs win over the White Sox was surprising and the Pirates
should have been picked. Luke Hochevar continues to baffle and Daniel Hudson was
creamed. But again, it's not a...
