Indians split doubleheader with D-Backs
The Indians played two games Wednesday, but it's the first one they will want to remember.

When the dust settled after 21 innings of play, the Tribe and D-Backs split a doubleheader on one swing of the bat from each ball club. Join IBI Indians beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps both games from the ballpark.

Tribe Happenings: Cautious optimism after Carrasco outing
Carlos Carrasco pitched a very good game for the Indians in their series finale against the Yankees on Sunday.

Second Thoughts Game #117: Cleveland 3, NY Yankees 0
Corey Kluber took his deadpan routine to New York on Saturday, and despite a brief injury scare in the fourth inning, all would appear to be well with the Cleveland ace. With scoring from Jose Ramirez hit the first home run of his career, a short two-run blast, and Michael Brantley adding an insurance run in the Eighth, it was Corey Kluber who monopolized the spotlight. The IBI's John Grimm looks back, not only on Corey Kluber's season, but attempting to situate Kluber's season in Indians history.

Second Thoughts Game #116: Cleveland 6, NY Yankees 10
While the 10-6 score suggests a baseball game that was an offensive explosion, Friday's contest was a game that was neither nearly as close as it looked nor one driven predominantly by offense. While Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer's control was far from pristine, the Cleveland defense defined the night, making two critical errors and setting the tone for Cleveland early. The IBI's John Grimm gives a year-to-date review of the Cleveland defense and the ignoble history they approach.
