Cleveland rocks on the mound too
It seems like the good fortune enjoyed by their basketball playing neighbors is paying dividends for the Indians. Cleveland's pitching staff isn't letting any teams have fun at the plate as of late.
The Cavaliers won the NBA title and now the Indians can't lose. We look at their recent streak and their season outlook.
Jason Kipnis hit two of Cleveland's four triples and the Indians continued their season-long dominance of the Detroit Tigers with a 7-4 victory Friday night.
The Indians are about to embark on a 10-game road trip that will take them through Detroit, Atlanta and Toronto. The Cavaliers know how that feels.
Cleveland ended all-time misery streak
The elation in Cleveland after breaking its title drought was extremely well deserved. According to Bill Barnwell, no city in American professional sports has suffered longer than Cleveland. However, a pair of active streaks could surpass it. Sports Misery Index
Indians legendary shortstop Omar Vizquel joins The Really Big Show to talk about current Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor. He also talks about the Cavs championship.
What do Noah Syndergaard's fastball, Clayton Kershaw's slider and Corey Kluber's curve have in common? None hold a candle to Danny Salazar's changeup.
Indians enjoy perfect month at home
With Wednesday's win, Cleveland will finish June 11-0 at home. It's the only undefeated calendar month at home in franchise history (min. 10 games), the Elias Sports Bureau reports. The franchise has been around since 1901.
Good times in Cleveland this month
Not only did the Cavaliers win the NBA Finals, but the Indians went a perfect 11-0 in their June games at Progressive Field.
Indians had quite the view of Cavs parade
Cleveland tweeted out a photo of its mascot, Slider, enjoying the festivities on Wednesday from Progressive Field.
Wednesday's longest home runs
Ian Desmond's 447-foot blast off Reds reliever J.J. Hoover led the way on a day where Chase Headley and Starlin Castro had big games for the Yankees with a grand slam and walk-off home run, respectively.
We learned Wednesday that Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is starting to really figure things out. If he does, Cleveland's rotation is stacked.
David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer
Here's what should have the Royals worried: What if Trevor Bauer is figuring things out? Granted, the Rays struggle against right-handed pitchers, but after tossing a three-hit complete game with 10 K's, Bauer lowered his ERA to 3.20 and opponents are hitting just .225 against him.
Trevor Bauer threw a three-hitter for his second career complete game, Jason Kipnis hit a two-run homer and Cleveland defeated Tampa Bay 6-1 on Wednesday night for their sixth straight win.
When Corey Kluber is on, he's on
Kluber fired a three-hit shutout to beat the Rays 6-0, improving to 7-7 with a 3.59 ERA. He's been inconsistent this season, but if he can regain this Cy Young form on a regular basis, the Kluber/Danny Salazar/Carlos Carrasco trio will be the best in the AL, David Schoenfield writes. Five things we learned Tuesday
Kluber shuts things down at home
Corey Kluber shut out the Rays on Tuesday for his second shutout of the season at Progressive Field. Since the Indians began playing their home games there in 1994, only three other Cleveland pitchers have tossed multiple shutouts at home before July: Dennis Martinez (1995), CC Sabathia (2008) and Justin Masterson (2013), the Elias Sports Bureau reports.
