Indians news and notes: Andrew Miller, Yu Darvish among best pitchers on Monday night

Morning news and notes for Tuesday, August 30, 2016.

It seems like it's been an eternity since the Cleveland Indians scored more than a single run in a game. Yes, they did it three days ago, but I'm still not entirely sure that that game actually occurred. While it was nice to win a game yesterday against the world beating Twins, the bats will hopefully wake up in a big way as the calendar prepares to flip to September. And now, onto the news!

After an agonizing nine innings of regulation baseball, Jason Kipnis came up and nabbed the Cleveland Indians' eighth walk-off win of the season with a bloop single in the tenth inning. While the offense failed to do much of anything on either team, the pitching was incredibly sharp all around. Noted drone enthusiast Trevor Bauer followed up Danny Salazar's strong outing with a dominant performance of his own. While it was nice for the Indians to win (seeing as Detroit and Kansas City both decided to also win), getting a great pitching performance by a key member of the rotation was even better.

    You know, I don't care how many times I watch Andrew MIller make opposing hitters look silly. It's satisfying every single time.
  • I can't say that I'm thrilled by this decision, but after seeing Salazar and Bauer get back on track, I'm a little more okay with seeing the Little Cowboy ride again. Let's just hope he looks more pre-ASB and less post-ASB.
  • Cleveland Indians extend partnership with Double-A affiliate Akron RubberDucks |
    I had the pleasure of seeing Francisco Lindor hit his first AA home run at Canal Park a couple of summers ago, and it was a great experience. It's great to see that the RubberDucks will still be with Cleveland at least through 2020.
