  • Bourn breaks out with three-RBI night

    Struggling at the plate -- and subsequently dropping in the order -- Indians outfielder Michael Bourn hasn't had the most ideal 2015. But perhaps Friday night will serve as further fuel for consistent optimism.

  • Bauer imitates batting stances to rave reviews

    Trevor Bauer was waiting for the right moment. When he stepped into the batter's box in the seventh inning on Friday night, the Indians pitcher saw an opportunity and seized it. He raised his bat and began moving it in a violent circular motion.

  • With no DH vs. Bucs, slumping Santana sits

    Traveling to a National League city always presents a problem for Indians manager Terry Francona. For the series opener against the Pirates on Friday, first baseman Carlos Santana became the odd-man out with no designated hitter in the lineup.

  • Anderson aims to clinch series in 3rd Majors start

    Don't be surprised if Saturday's 4:05 p.m. ET tilt between the Pirates and Indians at PNC Park is methodically defined by ground ball after ground ball as Cleveland's Cody Anderson takes the bump. Pirates starter Jeff Locke, meanwhile, has also induced double-digit ground ball totals in four of his past five outings.

  • Indians-Pirates Preview (The Associated Press)

    Cody Anderson looks to build on a pair of outstanding performances in his first two starts on Saturday at PNC Park and help the resurgent Indians match their longest run of the season. Cleveland (38-41) has posted a 1.57 ERA during its streak after Trevor Bauer and four relievers struck out nine and limited the Pirates to just three hits in Friday's 5-2 win. Pittsburgh (45-34) had been seeing the ball well heading into this three-game interleague series, batting .358 with five home runs and 10 doubles while totaling 22 runs in three victories at Detroit.

  • Bourn has 3 RBIs to lead Indians to 5-2 win over Pirates (The Associated Press)

    Michael Bourn believes Cleveland's five-game winning streak is proof the Indians are going to be in contention down the stretch despite a slow start. Bourn drove in three runs, Brandon Moss homered and Trevor Bauer pitched effectively into the seventh inning as the Indians beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on a rainy Friday night in a game that stretched past midnight. Cleveland's latest win follows a four-game sweep at Tampa Bay, but the Indians are still three games under .500 at 38-41 and in fourth place in the AL Central, eight games in the AL Central.

  • Braves defeat Max Scherzer on controversial walk-off single (Big League Stew)

    Take a look around the league with Big League Stew's daily wrap up. We'll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. The Atlanta Braves managed to do something few teams have done this season: They registered a victory against Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer. The win didn't come without controversy, though. With the two clubs knotted 1-1 in the bottom of the ninth, Scherzer took the mound hoping to send the game into extras.  Pedro Ciriaco led off the frame with a single, and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jace Peterson. That's when controversy struck. Cameron Maybin hit a walk-off single down the third base line to win the contest. Whether the ball was fair or foul is up for debate. The ball took a big hop on the infield dirt and landed in foul territory once it hit the ground. Umpire C.B. Bucknor ruled that the ball passed over third base in fair territory, making it a fair ball. Nationals manager Matt Williams did not agree with the call, but due to a strange wrinkle in the replay rules, the umps could not take another look at the play. The rule states that any ball that lands in front of the first or third base umps is not eligible to be reviewed. That seems random, but those are the rules. With the win, Atlanta improved to 38-41 on the year.   MATT MOORE RUNS OUT OF STEAM Jose Fernandez and Matt Cain weren't the only pitchers returning to action Thursday. Tampa Bay Rays left Matt Moore also made his return to the mound during the club's 5-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. Moore showed some encouraging signs, but was mostly shaky during his first start of the year. Over 4 2/3 innings, Moore allowed four runs on six hits. He struck out four and walked two during the contest. Moore looked great early, but seemed to tire as the game went on. Through the first three innings, he did not allow a hit against Cleveland. A sac fly put the Indians on the board in the fourth, and then the floodgates opened in the fifth. After two quick outs, Moore allowed a single against Giovanny Urshela. Urshela advanced to second on a wild pitch, and was brought home on a single by Jason Kipnis. Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley would follow that up with RBI singles of their own, chasing Moore from the contest. It was Moore's first start in 451 days.  After the start, Moore said he was happy to be back. Felt great to get back out on the mound!Had a tremendous amount of help and feel very thankful tonight. — Matt Moore (@MattyMoe55) July 3, 2015 Cleveland improved to 37-41 with the win. KAZMIR SHUTS DOWN SEATTLE Oakland Athletics lefty Scott Kazmir dominated the Seattle Mariners during a 4-0 victory Thursday. Kazmir allowed just two hits during the contest, both of which came against outfielder Frankin Gutierrez. No one else in Seattle's lineup could touch Kazmir. Kazmir actually had a perfect game going until the fifth inning. With one out, Gutierrez broke up the perfecto with a double. Gutierrez would add a single in the eighth inning, but was stranded on base both times. Over eight shutout innings, Kazmir allowed just two hits. He struck out seven and did not issue a walk during the contest. With the start, Kazmir lowered his ERA to 2.56 on the year. BOYD BEAT BY BOSTON It was a bad day for Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Matt Boyd. Boyd was absolutely crushed against the Boston Red Sox during a 12-6 loss.  Boyd got the start for Toronto, and exited the game without recording an out. He allowed three straight singles to open the game, the last of which brought in a run. David Ortiz would then follow that up with a three-run homer, giving Boston the early four-run lead. They weren't done yet, though. Hanley Ramirez would follow that up with a solo shot of his own. Pablo Sandoval added a single, and Mike Napoli walked, and that was the end of the day for Boyd.  Both of those runners would come around to score, meaning Boyd was charged with two runs after leaving the contest. He allowed seven runs on six hits during the appearance. Boyd walked one and failed to strike out a batter. He was sent down to the minors after the game. Toronto briefly attempted a comeback attempt, but Boston managed to pull away in the late innings. With the victory, the Red Sox improved to 37-44.  Want to see more from Thursday's slate of games?
