Exhibition Baseball: Indians 6 Texas Rangers 5

Two players who are trying to make the Cleveland Indians 25-man roster for the 2014 season, helped their causes with solid play yesterday.

Outfielder Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-3 highlighted by a 2-run single in the top of the first inning and shortstop Elliott Johnson collected three hits in the Tribe’s 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers in Surprise, Arizona.

The Indians had 11 hits and did not allow Rangers’ starting pitcher Colby Lewis out of the first inning.

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.

White Sox’ 9-3 win reminds Indians not to forget about them in AL Central race

The Cleveland Indians have been asked all season ever since they we’ve been around first place, if they worry about the Detroit Tigers.

Manager Manny Acta and his players have said all along that you can’t forget about the Chicago White Sox, who can hit and pitch with anybody.

On Friday night, the Indians were shown why they have to worry about the Windy City teams as well in a 9-3 loss to Chicago at U.S. Cellular Field. Right-hander Jeanmar Gomez (3-3) struggled with his command, the Tribe’s lineup labored against rookie Jose Quintana and the White Sox put their power on display.

Cleveland just swept the Tigers at home during the week. But the American League Central-leading Indians (26-19) saw their lead over the second-place White Sox (24-22) trimmed to 2 1/2 games.

Coming into the 2012 season, Detroit was picked as the front-runner for this year’s Central Division title. The Tigers won the division by a 15-game margin over the Tribe last season and then went out and signed¬† free-agent slugger Prince Fielder. Chicago was not expected to be a factor, but the White Sox are sitting on the Indians heels nearly two months into the season.

The Indians’ offense struggled all night against White Sox lefty Jose Quintana (1-0), who was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte before the game. Quintana limited Cleveland to two runs on four hits in six innings.

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.
