Indians' Josh Tomlin pitching well of late | MLB.com
“The four-seamer did not find the intended target. Instead, the pitch tailed back over the heart of the plate, found the barrel of Miguel Sano's bat and rocketed over the right-field wall. Tomlin is no stranger to solo home runs, but this one stung more as Friday's 1-0 loss to the Twins wore on.”

Prior to Friday's game against the Twins, Indians manager Terry Francona noted that Kluber -- who's on the 10-day disabled list with a lower-back injury -- has resumed moderate running and playing catch on flat ground.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day

Cleveland Indians: Cancer survivor Julie Everett to be Indians honorary bat girl on Mother’s Day
“What an amazing thrill,” she said. “I’ve been quite the Tribe fan my whole life. I remember 1995 and 1997 trying to explain to my kids why I was sobbing in the car after losing (World Series games) in Game 7. I haven’t missed an opening day game in 25 years. So to be honored in this way and to represent all the breast cancer survivors who have battled this disease — women or men — is a tremendous honor.”

Gomes' mother, Claudia, was there every step along the way. “She literally did everything,“ Gomes said. “Our way of doing it in Brazil is kind of like travel teams now. We would go all over the country and play. I was like 10 years old and somebody had to come with me. She would go everywhere, and she actually became our team scorekeeper. She just learned it on the go.”
