Yan Gomes set to return on Sunday

The Indians get back one of their biggest pieces very soon, in the midst of the closest thing they've had to a hot streak

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

The holy trifecta - three games in a row. Who would have ever thought this day would come? How about celebrating with a hearty round of news & notes:

Yesterday's game: Indians 5, White Sox 2

The Indians left a bunch on base, but that was after they got out to an early 4-0 lead. Danny Salazar wasn't as sharp as he couldv'e been, but he threw six scoreless innings with eight strikeouts.

Indians news & notes

Gomes will catch Sunday agains Cincinnati | - Our long national nightmare is over. Yan Gomes will return to the Indians' lineup this coming Sunday. It'll be his first game since April 11th, when he sprained his MCL on an iffy play at the plate against Detroit. Not much more needs to be said about the potential impact of having Gomes back.

Gomes, close to return, will be welcome addition | Did The Tribe Win Last Night? - Roberto Perez and Brett Hayes have done their best to fill in a very large gap on the Tribe roster, but there's no substitute for the Gome. His presence, both offensively and defensively, will be key to the remainder of the season.

Salazar goes for win instead of history | - Danny Salazar had never lasted four innings at US Celluar before, so he went into yesterday's game hoping to correct that. His goal was to cut back on the strikeouts and increase the innings pitched. Eh, mission sort of accomplished?

Indians starting to gel with another series win | - Everything kind of went right yesterday, and the Indians managed to string together their third win in a row. Is this the start of a rebirth?

How Nick Swisher could ruin Zach Walters' career | Burning River Baseball - A team can only handle so many high strikeout, defensive liability players on its roster. As long as Swisher hangs around, it's hard to picture a place on the roster for Walters, despite his prodigious power capabilities.
