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 to lift the Indians to a 3-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Cabrera's homer came off intimidating Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. Cleveland manager Manny Acta called it "a very emotional win." It certainly was for Cabrera, who followed a one-out single from Shin-Soo Choo with an opposite-field blast, over the right field wall, to end the game. Cabrera was the hitter in that situation only because of a lineup change Acta made a couple of weeks ago. Cabrera had been hitting in the third spot in the order for most of the first two months of the season. Choo hit leadoff, Jason Kipnis hit secon...

Indians 10, Reds 9: Its Bizarro World as Tribe Outslugs The ‘Nati

I said yesterday that the Indians are going to have to win this division with their pitching and defense. Naturally a night later they come out and tear the cover off the ball.

Daily Brief: Latos thinks Indians were stealing signs

Last Game The Reds lost their first game in 7 tries last night to the Cleveland Indians. It was a slugfest, too, with the final score being 9-10. Each of the starting pitchers allowed 7 runs. 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.
