Happy Sunday, everyone!
Indians 4, Tigers 1
It wasn’t the prettiest of victories, but it still counts as a W. Trevor Bauer continued to strike everyone out, Francisco Lindor hit another home run, and the bullpen locked it down.
A bunch of Cleveland pitchers are working their way back towards good health, including Andrew Miller. But in the case of the star reliever, the Indians aren’t going to rush him back before he’s ready.
Around the league
- Clayton Kershaw returned from the DL and he’s content with how he pitched his first day back.
- Jason Vargas hit the DL with a strained calf.
- Marcus Stroman returned from the DL while his teammates Aaron Sanchez and Jaime Garcia both were placed on the DL.
- The Mariners are pretty relaxed and are a threat in the AL West.
- Be sure to thank your umpires:
This is what Willson Contreras said when asked about what happened when he was at the plate and bench coach Brandon Hyde got tossed. Apparently the ump wasn't pleased with Willson for not thanking him when he granted him timeout... pic.twitter.com/5qu8eKlgQx— Sahadev Sharma (@sahadevsharma) June 24, 2018
