September 11, 2017 Indians Breaking Records
After facing the White Sox on the 5th the Indians come out with a 13 game win streak with the hope to continue it tonight.
Carlos Carrasco is on the mound tonight for the tribe. Carrasco is 13-6 with an ERA of 3.67. He is averaging nearly 11 strikeouts per nine innings over his last 6 starts. Jose Ramirez is still on fire, he went 15-for-29 (.517) with 12 extra-base hits from Aug. 28 to Sept. 4, including extra-base hits in all five at-bats Sunday in Detroit. Jay Bruce and Brandon Zimmer are still taking time to recover from their listing on the DL. The Indians are the first club since the 1960-61 Yankees to post winning streaks of 13 games or more in consecutive seasons, and they’re doing so in large part due to their starting pitching. Before Danny Salazar’s rough outing Tuesday, Cleveland starters had a 11-0 with a 1.51 ERA during the streak.
Jose Ramirez, the reigning American League Player of the Week. “We’re just having more now. We have great players on this team, great guys, and we’re winning. We do the same thing all the time. We joke around, have great energy, and once the game starts, we’re really focused on what’s most important.”
Next year Cleveland. Next Year……
