Tribe Bats Cold in Minnesota; Twins 4, Indians 1

The Indians bats went silent in a 4-1 loss on Saturday, a game that ended a stretch of seven games in which the Tribe had 10 hits or more. Twins rookie Tyler Duffey allowed just one hit over six innings, and the Twins hit three homers (Rosario, Hermann, Dozier). Roberto Perez singled home Carlos Santana in the ninth for the Indians only run. Despite the loss, the Tribe’s rookie...

8/12 Recap: Small Ball Beats Big as Tribe Takes 2nd From New York

Player of the Game As we have come to expect, the Indians got another masterful pitching performance from Danny Salazar tonight. He allowed just one run on four hits through 7.1 innings and never got in trouble until the seventh. Then, he snuck out of a one out situation with runners on second and third by inducing a pop out to himself and a strike out of Chris Young. This was his...

Twins, Indians can make mark with home-run streak oddity

If you like the long ball then keep your eyes on the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians this weekend. There has been a home run hit by both teams in all six matchups between the two this season. Since divisional play began in 1969, only three other division rivalries have started a season with a longer such streak. In case you are wondering, here's who has hit the home runs for...

Omar Infante, Alcides Escobar combine for highlight reel play (Video)

Omar Infante and Alcides Escobar combined for one heck of a defensive highlight on Tuesday night. During the 9th inning of Kansas City’s 2-1 win over the Cleveland Indians, Infante went up the middle to the shortstop side of the field, backhanded a grounder by Roberto Perez and flipped to Escobar, who made a barehanded...Read More

Bode Plots: Which type of contact is affecting Indians batters the most?

With the Cleveland Indians continuing their struggles hitting with RISP1 , there has been an added emphasis among analysts and fans to uncover how much of their struggles are luck versus skill. In particular, there has been an emphasis on the amount of hard hit balls. However, there is a possibility that focus is on the wrong set of data, and that we should instead be looking at...

The Mariners terrible, horrible, no good, very bad catchers

To say Seattle Mariners catchers have been “abysmal” is disrespectful to the word abysmal. Just how bad have Mariners backstops been? The club’s collective catchers are batting .150. The Mets (.176), Reds (.174), Giants (.165) and Nationals (.160) pitching staffs (> 100+ plate appearances) all have better averages at the plate. That’s horrendous. Seattle hoped 24...

Ball Played: Indians literally drop the ball

Sometimes, one play can summarize a larger facet of a season. No single play can ultimately change an entire season especially in the third of a six month season. One play, however, can certainly serve as a symbol for what has occurred during said season. In 2014, the defensive struggles of the entire season for the Cleveland Indians were symbolized by the “Raburn Spike.” On...

Ball Played: Tigers continue mastery over Indians

The missing ingredient for the Cleveland Indians offense is often said to be a right-handed power bat. Perhaps a hitter capable of knocking around 50 extra base hits while winning a Silver Slugger Award would give them the necessary boost. Of course, the 2015 Indians expected to have such a hitter in their lineup, but catcher Yan Gomes has battled a slow start and multiple injuries...

How to Score More; Clutch Hits or Walks?

It has been a matter of debate among Indians fans, particularly those writers who speak on the Tribe Time Now network of podcasts, why the Indians had trouble scoring runs early in the season. On one side, they weren’t getting hits with runners in scoring position. On the other, they weren’t getting many runners in scoring position. This is a solid old school versus new school...

Tribe has no Answer for Prince, Throws Game Away Late; Rangers 10, Indians 8

The Indians climbed back from a 3-0 deficit to take a 5-3 lead, then did the same from a 7-5 deficit to take an 8-7 lead on Monday.

The loss ended the Tribe’s winning streak at six, but they’ve still won eight of their last 11. Carlos Santana (solo shot...

Ball Played: Finally, an Indians win

The Cleveland Indians came into the 2015 season supposedly offensively superior to the Kansas City Royals, especially when considering power hitting. The Royals invested so many resources into their defense and bullpen that it was thought to have left them a bit short at the plate. The Royals have been the better team at the plate so far, but Wednesday the Indians demonstrated some...
