Second Thoughts Game #156: Indians 9, Astros 2
Forget Tribe Town, how about Sweep City? In front of the largest Sunday crowd of the season, the Indians bats exploded for nine runs on 13 hits against the Astros to complete the four-game series sweep over Houston, 9-2. Sitting in the driver's seat for one of the American League wild card spots, the Indians (86-70) are now 16 games over the .500 mark for the first time since Aug. 27, 2007. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts...

Second Thoughts Game #155: Indians 4, Astros 1
It felt like it was October at the corner of Carneige and Ontario Saturday night. Putting up three runs in the first inning, the Indians made quick work of the Houston Astros for the 4-1 win. Scoring four runs on 16 hits in the first two games of the series, the Tribe scored four runs off Astros starter Paul Clemens through the first four innings. That was far from being the storyline of another Cleveland win though, as Indians starter Scott Kazmir continued his quest for the postseason with another brilliant performance.

Carson sends Tribe home with a much needed walk-off win
It took 11 innings, but the Carson show was on live at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario Thursday night. With the bases loaded and the game knotted at one apiece in the eleventh, right fielder Matt Carson knocked in the game-winning run with a walk-off base hit, giving the Tribe the 2-1 victory over the Houston Astros.

Royals power past Tribe 7-2, take three-game series
Only the Indians caught themselves howling at the full moon above Kaufmann Stadium Wednesday night. A three run first inning and defensive miscues were too much for the Tribe to overcome, as they fell to the Royals in the rubber match, 7-2. The win gives Kansas City the series victory as they take two out of three against Cleveland for the second time over the last 10 days.

Second Thoughts Game #149: Indians 7, White Sox 1
Even rain couldn’t cool off a surging Indians offense, as they completed the series sweep over their division rival White Sox Sunday afternoon, 7-1. After a rain delay of four hours and 23 minutes delayed the start time of the ballgame, it took the Tribe just two hours and 39 minutes to win their fourth straight over the last place Pale Hose. More importantly, the victory marks the first time since 2008 Cleveland has won 81 games in a season, as they continue to make their way toward October. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts...

Second Thoughts Game #148: Indians 8, White Sox 1
Another game on Chicago’s Southside, and another win for your Cleveland Indians. After a scoreless tie between both club’s through three innings, the Tribe offense unleashed two homers for a five run fourth to give them the lead they would never surrender. Indians bats roughed up White Sox right-hander Andre Rienzo for five runs on seven hits in just four innings. Tribe starter Ubaldo Jimenez took a shutout in the ninth inning, and pulled away with his best start as a member of the Indians.

Indians attendance numbers hit new lows with lack of support
A crowd of 34,494 were on hand at Progressive Field to watch the Tribe battle the Kansas City Royals this past homestand. There’s just one problem. That was the total combined attendance for the entire three-game series. The IBI's Jim Berdysz takes a deep look into the attendance issue for the Indians and tries to tackle the reason behind why people continue to stay away even with the team in the thick of the playoff race.

Indians drop another to Royals, 6-2 to lose three-game series
Big game? Not a problem for Big Game James. Royals starter James Shields (11-9, 3.38 ERA) lived up to his nickname Wednesday afternoon, as he shutdown the Indians offense to two runs on just two hits defeating the Tribe, 6-2. In the rubber match with wild card hopes very much alive for both clubs, Kansas City sneaks out of town winning the final two games of the three-game series.

K.C. puts the heat on the Tribe with a 6-3 win
A three-run sixth inning by the Royals was too much to overcome for the Tribe, as they fell to Kansas City Tuesday night, 6-3. The Indians had the bats going in the contest as the team recorded 12 hits, but unfortunately was unable to string some hits together and could only muster the three runs. Join the IBI's Jim Berdysz as he recaps all the action from the tough Tribe defeat.

Second Thoughts Game #142: Mets 2, Indians 1
There would be no magic at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario like there was 18 years ago, just one familiar foe. Clinching their first ever division title on Sept. 8, 1995, the only thing the Indians clinched on Sunday was their first loss in four games. Cleveland had chances to cash in offensively, but couldn't get that big hit like they have during the first two games of the series. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts on the tough loss...

Second Thoughts Game #141: Indians 9, Mets 4
Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, step right up and BEAT the Mets! It was another offensive explosion for the Tribe on Saturday, as the team took down the struggling New York Mets for the second straight night, 9-4. Offensively, Cleveland continues to put up big numbers scoring 17 runs over the first two games of the three-game weekend series. The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his second thoughts....

Indians win three-game series with Orioles, rally for 6-4 win
There would be no need to sacrifice a live chicken to give the Tribe a victory Wednesday night. Before the rubber match against the Orioles, the team got an unexpected September call-up from the farm. Reliever Cody Allen and other members of the bullpen brought in a chicken to try and keep the team loose. That and some timely hitting and good bullpen work led to an important 6-4 win for the Indians.

The Cleveland Indians needed someone to step up big time on Tuesday night, and thankfully Ubaldo Jimenez did just that. The big right-hander allowed no runs across six innings of work to lead the Indians to a 4-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Join the IBI's Jim Berdysz as he provides all the details and play-by-play from the crucial Tribe win.
