Sparkplug Ramirez Helping Indians Offense Go

He might be the right spark at just the right time. Jose Ramirez was quite the spark this past weekend, logging seven hits in the three-game series versus Houston. Seven hits is a good weekend, but a game-winning base hit in the ninth on Saturday and a key, two-out base hit to drive in a run on Sunday makes a great weekend. On the surface, Ramirez’s .235 batting average seems quite...

Comedy of errors as Tribe plays ugliest game of season

CLEVELAND -- When the Indians 2014 highlight film is made, there is only one song that should be the soundtrack. If you grew up watching the "Benny Hill Show", you know it very well. What the Indians have done fielding the baseball and base-running though hasn't been a comedy. It's been a tragedy of errors. The final two innings of Friday's 5-1 loss to the Astros...

Indians 5, Twins 0: Handsome in the House

Don’t look now, but here they come. The Cleveland Indians, the consistent inconsistents, are in the midst of the soft part of their schedule. After taking two of three from the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles, the next nine games on the docket featured three of the AL’s worst teams; Minnesota, Houston, and Chicago. The Twins were first up and the way things got started two...

8/20 Recap: House & Aviles Lead Tribe to Series Win

Series Preview #40: Cleveland Indians (62-61) at Minnesota Twins (55-68)

The Indians (62-61) pushed back over the .500 mark again this past weekend with three more strong starting pitching performances to make up for a general lack of offensive punch. With...

Indians Take Two From O’s

The Cleveland Indians are back on the rise. Well, sort of. After a rather solid weekend of baseball against the Baltimore Orioles, the Indians are feeling pretty good. They would have been feeling much better if they could have executed a sweep of the O’s on Sunday afternoon, but two out of three definitely is not all that bad. The Indians looked like a team ready for a surge against...

Mike Aviles' walkoff homer lifts Cleveland Indians over Baltimore Orioles, 2-1, in 11

Orioles rally, lose 2-1 in 11 innings to Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) Orioles reliever Brian Matusz intended to throw his pitch off the plate, down in the dirt, anywhere so Mike Aviles couldn't hit it. When it flew over the left-field wall and landed on the pedestrian walkway, Matusz knew he had made a big mistake. One he couldn't fix. ''I was trying to bounce it on the plate and it was a little bit up,'' Matusz...

Kluber dominant but Indians need 11 innings to beat Orioles

CLEVELAND -- With Corey Kluber on the mound, the Indians feel like if they score one run it is enough to get them a win. That wasn't the case though on Friday. They needed two. Kluber was strong for 7 2/3 innings against Baltimore but the Orioles tied it in the eighth with three straight singles. The Indians though were able to win it in the 11th on the first walk-off homer of...

Aviles’ Walk-Off Clips Birds In 11 Innings; Indians 2, Orioles 1

Everybody wants to be like Mike. Mike Aviles, that is. The Indians utility man and founder of the “Goon Squad” smacked an 11th-inning, walk-off home run on Friday night to lead his team to a 2-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Aviles’ blast was the icing on another dominate pitching performance from Corey Kluber. The Tribe ace struck out 10 Orioles while scattering five...

Indians turn tarp into giant Slip 'N Slide

This may be the most jovial rainout entertainment witnessed in a while. As a deluge of rain hit Progressive Field in Cleveland Tuesday night, a few Indians players channeled their inner child and made the diamond into their own personal amusement park as word came down that the game had been postponed. Rain at baseball games -- and the accompanying delays -- is no fun but Mike Aviles...

Diamondbacks-Indians game postponed

CLEVELAND (AP) A long, rainy night made Mike Aviles silly - and slippery. Aviles led a charge of Indians players who did several headfirst slides across the tarp before Tuesday night's game between Arizona and Cleveland was postponed after a rain delay of 3 hours, 40 minutes that began in the top of the fourth inning.

Foul ball off McCann’s mask could land catcher on DL

Brian McCann left Friday’s 10-6 win over the Indians with a mild concussion and there’s a chance the Yankees catcher could land on the 7-day concussion disabled list. He took a foul tip off his mask in the top of the third with Mike Aviles at the plate. Trainer Steve Donohue checked McCann out on the field, but he wasn’t removed until three innings later and is day-to-day...

Trade Deadline inactivity hurts Indians’ odds of repeating postseason play

The Cleveland Indians went into the trade deadline allegedly looking for a right-handed bat and some starting pitching. Instead, they left with two prospects—having traded away two former All-Stars—who were immediately sent to Triple-A Columbus. Remember all of that “Unfinished Business” stuff? Well, for all of their efforts (or lack thereof) Chris Antonetti’s squad took...

Offense Explodes While Salazar Sparkles; Indians 12, Rangers 2

In a season full of inconsistent pitching, it would take a lot to overshadow a fine pitching performance. On Friday night, it took 12 runs and 16 hits from the Indians, en route to a 12-2 win over the Texas Rangers. Cleveland scored in five of the first six innings and sent Rangers starter Jerome Williams to a historic defeat while former Ranger David Murphy exacted some revenge...

Current Tribe Boasts Benefits of Previous Trades

Despite being the smartest person I know, my sister has not always known what makes a good trade. When we were kids, she traded our prized Charizard Pokémon card to the boy down the street. I don’t remember what we got in return, only that, in my eyes, it wasn’t nearly enough. Sure, she won the affections of her kindergarten crush, but our deck of cards was now severely lacking...

Second Thoughts Game #101: Indians 1, Twins 3

Since June 14th, the Minnesota Twins are 8-21. They’re a team heading hard for the cellar of the Central Division for the fourth time in the last five years. These are the series that the Indians need to win if they want to earn a playoff spot. The loss in this game was a huge missed opportunity, and offsets any momentum gained during the Detroit series. Luckily for the team, they...

Indians 3, Twins 4: It smelled funny from the start

8:29 PM – We join our heroes in Minneapolis, during the top of the second inning after an uneventful first. Much has been made in the booth of the fact that this is the Indians’ first trip back to Target Field since clinching their 2013 playoff spot.  That is somewhat hard to believe.  I find it much easier to believe that Roberto Perez just grounded into an inning-ending double...
