Here’s to a win today!
Mike Clevinger diligent in preparing for Game 3 start | Indians.com
The right-hander had a great year and we sure could use a fantastic outing from him today. From Jordan Bastian:
This is the assignment Mike Clevinger craved. After spending the past two Octobers working out of the Indians’ postseason bullpen, the right-hander earned the trust of manager Terry Francona and has emerged as one of the American League’s most durable starting pitchers.
“Our backs are against the wall,” Clevinger said during Sunday’s workout. “We know that this could be our last game if we don’t show up. So if anything, everyone is going to leave what they have out there, and that’s going to be good to see at home.”
