Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was ejected for arguing by home plate umpire Gary Darling in the bottom of the first inning Wednesday night.
Darling called Cabrera out on strikes and the All-Star shortstop turned and yelled, pointing his finger. Darling took off his mask and said something back and Cabrera pointed at him again. Darling then gave Cabrera his first ejection of the year.
Brent Lillibridge moved from third base to shortstop in the second inning and Jack Hannahan came in to play third for the Indians, who have lost 25 of 30.

The Indians exploded for seven runs! Seven! That’s the most runs they’ve scored since an 8 run loss to the Tigers on August 5th. And they lost.

Just like our beloved Indians, we’re scraping the bottom of the roster here at WFNY. Instead of the incomparably talented TD or Jon, I will be bringing you a recap of last night’s game. I do hope you enjoy.
For all you moviegoers who’ve seen “The Dark Knight Rises”, you might recall the line, “There cannot be true despair without hope.” I’ve tried to maintain some...
Last night while trying to avoid the actual topic of the Indians losing to the A’s 1 I decided it would be interesting to start discussing what kind of price Shin-Soo Choo could demand on the open market. We all like Choo (I think.) He is a player who should be part of any team’s solution as opposed to an issue. Still, he’s not to the level of a big-time premier free agent...

The Indians game with the A's on Thursday started at 12:05 PM. Zack Meisel of MLB.com took this picture and posted it on Twitter at 12:02, just three minutes before first pitched. He said he counted 1,555 fans in the crowd.
I mean...wow. That's bad. The Indians are just 11-34 since the All-Star Break, and haven't drawn a crowd of more than 15,000 in this series...
If you were one of the alleged 13,018 in attendance last night, I salute you. You are a real diehard. The rumor is the Indians season ticket base is about 8,500 or so. When STO made the not so wise decision to show overhead or long view shots of Progressive Field, it looked as though there were 3,500, maybe 4,000 tops in the stands. The Dolan family, Mark Shapiro, Chris Antonetti...
The Indians recently stopped another losing streak against the New York Yankees, but still dropped the series to the A.L. East leading Yankees. This is the eight consecutive series the Indians have managed to lose or split.
Roberto Hernandez of the Indians had a no hitter through 5 2/3 innings in his last start. Hernandez, formerly known as Carmona, has been inconsistent ever since...
Goodness gracious, Cleveland Indians fans. That’s Major League-level apathy right there. The photo, courtesy of a tweet from MLB.com’s Zack Meisel at 12:02 p.m. for a 12:05 game at Progressive Field for a matinee against the Oakland Athletics (Meisel tweets that he counted 1,555 fans in the crowd), pretty much provides photographic evidence that the entire [...]
CLEVELAND -- For a team leading the wildcard race, the Oakland A's couldn't have hand-picked a better opponent to play in the four-game series that ended Thursday. The A's, who have won six games in a row, and 12 of their last 14, took advantage of the reeling Cleveland Indians, belting four home runs and beating Cleveland 12-7. Oakland is 9-2 vs. Cleveland this year...
At this time of year, it's important for playoff hopefuls to take advantage of games against non-contending clubs.
The Oakland Athletics have had no trouble adhering to this standard against the Cleveland Indians.
The surging Athletics look to beat the free-falling Indians for the seventh time in as many meetings over the last two weeks in Thursday's season finale at Progressive...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jarrod Parker pitched into the sixth inning and Oakland hit four home runs, leading the Athletics to their sixth straight win, a 12-7 victory over the free-falling Cleveland Indians on Thursday and a sweep of the four-game series.
Oakland, which has won eight of nine, maintained its one-game lead over Baltimore for the top spot in the AL wild card race. George...
Josh Donaldson hit a three-run homer and five Oakland Athletics pitchers combined to beat the Cleveland Indians 8-4 on Wednesday night.
Oakland took over the AL wild-card lead by one game over Baltimore with its 11th win in 13 games as Travis Blackley (5-3) gave up two runs over 5 2-3 innings. Ryan Cook got four outs for his 13th save.
Donaldson connected off rookie Corey Kluber...
Tommy Milone pitched six shut out innings as the Oakland Athletics continued to hand the Cleveland Indians another loss. The Athletics pitchers gave up 8 hits but the Indians couldn’t score any runs. The Athletics handed the Indians their second shut out in a row. The A’s got on the board scoring 2 runs in the second inning then they scored 2 more in the third. The team was able...
The only downside for the Oakland Athletics is that they don't play the Cleveland Indians again this season.
Oakland capped a four-game sweep of the free-falling Indians with a 12-7 victory on Thursday. The Athletics, who have won six straight and eight of nine, finish the season series against Cleveland with an 8-2 record. After dropping the first two games in April, Oakland...
Player of the Game
Esmil Rogers won his second Player of the Game with 2 perfect innings in relief and four strike outs.
In different ways, this was Zach McAllister's best and worst start of the year. He recorded a season high 8 strike outs with some great movement on his fastball, but when he wasn't striking batters out, they were hitting him all over...
