Baltimore Orioles pound Lowe, Indians, 10-2

 

Currently, at the end of July, the Cleveland Indians look more like pretenders, than contenders in the American League Central Division.

The Tribe has been sputtering since June 23. The Indians are 10-14 and has been passed up by the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers in the up-for-grabs division. The Indians are three games behind the White Sox.

With Derek Lowe on the mound last night, Cleveland did not fare well as a contender. Lowe gave up nine runs in three-plus innings of their 10-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in front of a disappointed crowd of 33,954 at Progressive Field.

The Orioles through the first five innings, pounded the baseball for five doubles, two home runs and led 9-1.

Former Indians’ star Jim Thome had a double, homer and single in going 3 for 5. The lefty-swinging slugger hit a high, deep homer to right for the 610th of his career, tying Sammy Sosa for seventh all-time on the MLB home run list.

LA Angels’ Weaver named American League Player of the Week

 

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Jered Weaver, who tossed the first no-hitter of his career last Wednesday and the second in the Majors this season, has been named American League Player of the Week in recognition of his accomplishment for the period ending May 6th.

This is Weaver’s first career Player of the Week honor.

In recognition of his American League Player of the Week Award, Jered Weaver will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

Weaver, Northridge, California native and a two-time A.L. All-Star, needed 121 pitches to shut down the Minnesota Twins, 9-0, in the ninth individual no-hitter in Angels history and the 10th overall. It was the first no-no for the Angels since Ervin Santana blanked the Cleveland Indians on July 27, 2011 at Progressive Field, and it was the first gem by an Angels starter at home since Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined to no-hit the Seattle Mariners on April 11, 1990.

Against Minnesota, the 6’7” right-hander threw 16 first-pitch strikes en route to a season-high nine strikeouts while issuing his lone walk to Josh Willingham in the seventh inning. The Twins’ only other baserunner came in the second when Chris Parmelee reached first base safely on a passed ball following a strikeout. The victory helped the Long Beach State product improve to 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA on the season.

The 29-year-old Weaver is a 2-time All-Star with a career record of 86-47, an ERA of 3.24, 1,022 strikeouts, 10 complete games, 5 shutouts and was the MLB strikeout leader in 2010.

Indians lose 16-inning, 5-hour marathon Opening Day game to Toronto

Thursday’s Opening Day game epitomized many things.

Toronto utility player Omar Vizquel, a former Cleveland Indians star, played in left field and at first base, two positions he rarely ever plays.

But after all, if Indians closer Chris Perez had closed out a 4-1 lead 2 1/2 hours earlier, there would never have been a 5-hour, 14-minute, 16-inning affair nor would Vizquel have played those two positions.

The Indians lost 7-4 to the Blue Jays which is now the longest game in Opening Day history in Major League Baseball.

With about 5,000 fans left in stands at Progressive Field, Toronto won the game in the 16th on a three-run homer by J.P. Arencibia.

The Tribe wasted a great pitching performance by improving right-hander, Justin Masterson, who was cruising along with a 4-1 lead in eight innings and 10 strikeouts.

Cleveland Indians centerfielder Grady Sizemore took his first live batting practice in six weeks and it “went well,” he said.

The three-time AL All-Star, who once played in 382 straight games, could be rehabbing in the minor leagues sometime next week.

Sizemore hit in the cage for 15 minutes at Progressive Field before the Indians hosted the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.

He has been on the disabled list since July 18 with a bruised knee, following sports hernia surgery.

On Wednesday afternoon in Cleveland, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Ervin Santana was dominate from the first pitch to the 105th pitch.

Santana threw the first solo no-hitter for the Angels in almost 27 years as the beat the Cleveland Indians in Cleveland 3-1.

This was the first no-hitter ever at Progressive Field, the former ballpark which opened as Jacobs Field in 1994.

The 28-year-old right-hander pitched the third no-hitter in the major leagues this season. He joins Francisco Liriano of the Minnesota Twins vs. the Chicago White Sox on May 3 and Detroit’s Justin Verlander beat Toronto on May 7.

Santana struck out 10 and allowed only two baserunners, an error in the first inning and an eighth inning walk. He threw 105 pitches, 76 for strikes.
