I will never get tired of hearing a young child absolutely kill it when they sing our National Anthem. 8-year-old Kayleigh Collins sang a beautiful rendition of it at the Cleveland Indians game at Progressive Field.

I realized something during the 14-3 shellacking laid on the Indians Monday night. I’ve written about this team since the beginning of the 2008 season—not quite five full seasons. This is the third losing streak of at least ten games that I’ve covered.
This seems like a lot, right? I mean, three losing streaks of at least 10 games in less than five seasons? I don’t know....
One day after snapping an 11-game losing streak, the Cleveland Indians fired pitching coach Scott Radinsky.
Ruben Niebla was named an interim replacement Thursday before Cleveland opened a four-game home series against Boston.
Cleveland also put designated hitter Travis Hafner on the disabled list with a sore lower back and recalled infielder Jason Donald from Triple-A Columbus...
Designated hitter Travis Hafner was placed on the disabled list by the Indians with lower back inflammation. Hafner had an MRI on Wednesday and was placed on the disabled list for the second time this season Thursday. He missed six weeks with a right knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery. Hafner is hitting just .239 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 60 games. Infielder...
Through most of their roller coaster season, the Cleveland Indians have been able to count on two areas of the team to perform consistently: the defense and the back of the bullpen. Both areas collapsed Tuesday night, and Cleveland lost its 11th game in a row. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, second baseman Jason Kipnis and first baseman Casey Kotchman all made errors in the last three...
Outfielder Johnny Damon and right-handed pitcher Jeremy Accardo were released Thursday by the Indians, who were unable to deal the veterans after designating them for assignment last week. Damon hit .222 in 64 games with Cleveland after signing April 17. The 38-year-old is in his 17th season in the majors. He played 56 games in left field and was also used as designated hitter...
Ubaldo Jimenez struck out a season-high 10 for his first win in more than a month and the Cleveland Indians beat Boston 5-3 on Thursday night, handing the Red Sox their seventh loss in nine games.
Jimenez (9-11) allowed three runs over six innings as Cleveland won its second straight after losing 11 in a row. He had been 0-4 with an 8.41 ERA in five starts since beating Tampa Bay...
CLEVELAND -- In their first game after firing their pitching coach, the Cleveland Indians got one of the better-pitched games of the season from starter Ubaldo Jimenez. The big right-hander struck out a season-high 10 batters in six innings Thursday as the Indians beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3. Cleveland, which snapped an 11-game losing streak Wednesday, has won in a row. Jimenez...
Manager Manny Acta found it difficult to explain the Cleveland Indians' dismal losing streak, which finally ended one defeat short of tying the franchise record.
The Boston Red Sox are also searching for answers.
The Red Sox look to avoid a third straight loss Thursday night as they open a crucial 10-game road trip with the first of four in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND -- No one was more impressed than Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta. He made that clear after Boston's Clay Buchholz dominated Cleveland's lineup with a two-hit complete game in the Red Sox's 3-2 victory Friday night. "That's the best game I've seen pitched against us all year and it wasn't even a shutout," Acta said. Buchholz...
