Indians fall 4-3 in Cincinnati Reds, blow ninth-inning lead after lengthy rain delay

CLEVELAND: The Indians suffered a rare, ninth-inning loss in a rain-delayed, 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds at Progressive Field. The Indians lead 3-2 entering the ninth inning with closer Cody Allen on the mound, who entered a perfect 13-for-13 in save chances this season. That streak ended Wednesday night. The Reds began the inning with two singles to put the go-ahead run on base. Jose Peraza laid down a bunt to move them over, but an aggressive play and nice throw from Carlos Santana got the out at third. Billy Hamilton then nearly grounded into a game-ending 3-6-3...

Billy Hamilton scores from 1B on a single, runs Reds straight into comeback win over Cleveland

Though never bunt, kids. Never ever. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Billy Hamilton had no hits on the night. No walks, no nothin’. He did, however, beat out the relay throw on a would-be double play that would’ve ended the game in the Top of the 9th, and after that did nothing but pump helium into his own legend. On 1B with Zack Cozart at the plate and Arismendy Alcantara at 3B with 2-outs, Billy took off on the pitch that Cozart ultimately dinked into LF for a soft single that scored Alcantara, but when Michael Brantley dove to try to make the game-ending catch and...

The Colorado Rockies continued to prove they’re for real on Wednesday night. The Colorado Rockies improved to 31-17 overall, 18-7 on the road—both best in the National League— and 7-2 on their season-long 10-game road trip with a 7-2 drubbing over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. They’ve now won the first three of a four-game series by a combined score of 23-5 in a matchup that frankly hasn’t looked like a fair fight.

Game 45 WPA: Rendon, amirite? Nats beat Ms 5-1 as 2-bags goes 4-bags

Roark had a nice bounce-back outing, but Rendon continues to rawk, and the bullpen was refreshingly uninteresting. Image courtesy Fangraphs. (What do these graphs and percentages mean?) I think it’s fair to call this a comeback: Tanner Roark (+15.5%) gives up 1 run over 7 IP with 8 Ks and no walks. Double his nickname: Anthony Rendon (+21.8%) lobs a three-run homer just over the visiting bullpen fence in left center to give the Nats the lead in the first (+22.9%). Also busy: Trea Turner (+10.3%) is 1-4 with a reached-on-error and two stolen bases. This WPA brought to...

Indians manager Terry Francona OK with less ASG responsibility; Corey Kluber, Austin Jackson updates

CLEVELAND: A few changes came to the All-Star Game for this season, namely that it would no longer have any ties to which team holds home-field advantage in the World Series. The selection of who plays in the All-Star Game was also altered, with managers being taken out of the equation. Indians manager Terry Francona is perfectly fine with the lessened responsibility. This will be the third time Francona has managed the AL All-Stars, the first two times coming after the Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 2004 and 2007, respectively. In recent years, the manager played a role in filling...
