Cleveland, OH — On short notice, Minnesota starter Pedro Hernandez allowed just two runs over five innings as the Twins beat the Cleveland Indians, 5-3, to avoid a three-game sweep on Sunday.   Hernandez (3-1, 5.54) was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to fill in for scheduled starter Mike Pelfrey who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained back.   The start was the eighth for Hernandez this season and his first since he took the loss against the Boston Red Sox on May 19. The lefty worked around six walks to pick up the win despite throwing 45 of his 85 pitches for balls.   Three Minnesota relievers allowed one run over the final four frames. Glen Perkins worked around two base hits in the ninth for his 19th save.   The Twins got on the board in the top of the first against Indians starter Carlos Carrasco. With runners on first and third following a double, wild pitch, and walk, Josh Willingham singled through the hole into left, scoring the runner from third. Followi...

Pedro Hernandez gets win in last-minute, one-game call-up

Pedro Hernandez had to hop in a car and drive with his family overnight from Louisville, nearly 350 miles to Cleveland, to join the Minnesota Twins for Sunday's game against the Indians. The trip was worth it for the left-hander. Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Rochester prior to Minnesota's game Sunday against Cleveland. He also got the start in place of right-hander...

Road to the Show: Yan Gomes

Indians catcher Yan Gomes sat at his locker and finished a cup of beet juice before taking batting practice. You wouldn’t know he's a rookie by speaking with him, let alone from another country. Acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays this off-season along with infielder Mike Aviles, Gomes has burst on the scene rather quickly with the Tribe in what has become his first full...

Trey Burke Gets Massive Cleveland Indians AAA Team’s Logo Tattoo On Arm

It isn’t everyday that a soon to be professional player gets a tattoo of a completely different sport on his body, but it just happened. Trey Burke who will be getting drafted soon to the NBA, treated himself to a very large Columbus Clippers tattoo and took to Instagram to show it off. The tattoo is meant to be a homage to Columbus Ohio ‘where it all started’ for Trey, and...

Cleveland Indians: Add Two All Time Greats To Hall Of Fame

The Hall Of Fame at Progressive Field became just a little bit bigger.

Notes from the Wigwam: Tribe wins two more series

As both IBI’s Tony Lastoria and Jim Pete noted in their weekly columns, this Cleveland Indians team is certainly a streaky one, but fortunately, the team seems to be on a good streak at the moment. The Indians went 4-2 this past week, and they remain in the thick of the American League Central race as they trail the Detroit Tigers by four games. They also won two series and have...

Indians will use Brett Myers from the bullpen when he returns

The Brett Myers experiment has been an interesting one.  Is he a reliever?  Is he a starter?  Is he some kind of strange hybrid pitcher?  Teams don't seem to know.  What is known is that the Cleveland Indians will move Myers back to the bullpen when he returns from the disabled list. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com confirmed Myers conversion back to a relief role. Francona...

Fishing for Mudcats at the All-Star break

From the Bait Shop: It’s been a short week here in Carolina, thanks to the much needed All-Star break. The Muddies were locked and loaded with interesting prospects from the outset in April, but they were never able to make any sort of run with regards to wins. Their longest win streak on the year was a three games, and ironically enough, they were the first three games of the...

Justin Morneau’s value

I had an unusual comment on my Justin Morneau post from the weekend. It was unusual, because it expressed an opinion that didn’t quite align with mine, but refrained from profanity and insults to my person. In fact, all it really did was open up an opportunity for dialogue via an avenue I hadn’t thought to pursue before. So congratulations, commentor Shane, for disagreeing with...

Prospects and movie ads - They often don't live up to the hype

One of my favorite parts of going to the movies is watching all the ads before the film starts. It’s a guilty pleasure because (obviously) I just shelled out $10 to go watch the movie, and by the time it starts I’m sitting there imagining how good the NEXT movie will be instead of enjoying the movie I just bought.  Unfortunately, no matter how excited I get for a movie, it...
