Carrasco Strikes Out 12, Leads Indians to Second Straight Win Over Houston; Indians 2, Astros 0

Jose Altuve may have set a franchise record for the Astros last night, but his two hits Wednesday evening were no match for the dominant pitching of Carlos Carrasco. Imitating Corey Kluber’s dominant performance on Tuesday, Carrasco continued his own resurrection as he struck out 12 batters and propelled the Indians to a 2-0 win over the Astros. Carlos Santana had the first hit...

9/16 Recap: Kluber Sets New High & Moves Higher in the Record Books

Player of the Game While it wasn’t his best start of the season, tonight was the night that Corey Kluber struck out the most batters, impressive considering his already imposing K totals (more later).

Second Thoughts Game #146: Indians 2, Tigers 7

When Carlos Santana didn't hit a two-run home run in the first-inning, so clearly, doom was writ large upon the sky over Detroit. The number of things that Cleveland could have improved upon, from the numerous curiosities of Raburn's game to Carrasco not performing at his previous near-perfect performance, was clearly great; nevertheless, one finds oneself compelled to...

Santana's surge powers Indians to doubleheader sweep

CLEVELAND -- Carlos Santana's season can be broken into two distinct halves -- when he was being moved around and when he found a home at first base. For the Indians, the latter is what has turned his season around. Back in May it would have been nearly impossible to imagine Santana tying his career high in home runs this season. But with two in the Indians' doubleheader...

Second Thoughts Game #144-145: Indians sweep twin bill

As America took time to reflect on the events of 13 years ago, the Indians and Twins played, fittingly, a twin-bill at Progressive Field and it was the Tribe who came out on top in both matchups thanks to strong pitching and enough offense to dispense of the Twins and give Cleveland a series win ahead of a key matchup against the Tigers. Corey Kluber and T.J. House got the Tribe...

9/11 Game 2 Recap: The House Always Wins, Indians Sweep Double Header

Player of the Game Kluber was impressive in the first game, but T.J. House was even better in the rematch. House gave up just four hits, two of which were eliminated by double plays, no walks and struck out eight. In addition to allowing less hits and striking out more than Kluber, House didn’t give up a single run in a dominant performance. While he doesn’t throw as hard or...

Carlos Santana isn't dogging it for Cleveland Indians

If you've been yelling at your flat screen while watching Indians first baseman Carlos Santana run the bases for the last month or so, knock it off. He has a hall pass. Santana is playing with a sore right quadriceps muscle. When he runs the bases, it often looks like he's dragging his right leg behind him. "This definitely isn't an effort issue," said GM...

9/9 Recap: Poor Inning Costs Bauer & Tribe Series Opener

Roster Update: In an unusual move, the Indians have sent outfielder Chris Dickerson down to AAA, despite the fact that rosters have expanded and the Clippers are done playing baseball for the year. Dickerson had helped the team a lot over the past few months, playing above average defense on a very poor defensive team and starting in left field much of the time Michael Bourn was...

Surprisingly, the Tribes still have outside shot at Central

Carlos Santana Indians – Photo Credit – Keith Allison   When we think of the American League Central, we think of it as a two-team race — the battles going on between the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals. Fair enough, but do not forget about the one manager in the Central with a World Series ring, Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona. Francona took a one-year...

8:04 PM – We pick it up tonight heading to the bottom of the fourth with the Indians already up 2-0 on a first inning Carlos Santana home run.  Uh oh. This sounds like last night’s game. But instead of Carlos Carrasco doing wonderfully strange things, tonight we have Danny Salazar on the mound looking boringly good so far, managing his way out of his only spot of trouble in...
