Indians notebook: Jason Kipnis moves up in struggling lineup; Brandon Guyer to disabled list

CLEVELAND: Prior to Sunday’s breakthrough, the Indians had been stuck in an offensive rut, with frustration building.They were averaging just 2.45 runs per game in 11 games in May. They also had been limited to one run and six total hits in the first two games of their series against the Minnesota Twins. Indians manager Terry Francona said the cumulative slump might have been leading to several hitters in the lineup trying to do “too much” at the plate, an occasional by-product of a lengthy drought. “We’re getting in that mode where everyone’s trying to do more, when we just need...

Indians 8, Twins 3: Terry Francona shuffles lineup, Jason Kipnis responds with two home runs in victory

CLEVELAND: Offensive slumps within a baseball season can be infuriating for teams. Breaking out of them, even for a day, can be like a breath of fresh air. The Indians got plenty of the latter on Mother’s Day, finding their missing offensive firepower and throttling the Minnesota Twins 8-3 at Progressive Field. Manager Terry Francona decided to shake up the lineup prior to Sunday’s game, sliding Jason Kipnis into the leadoff spot and slotting Carlos Santana fifth. That move paid immediate dividends, and in turn made Francona’s move look pretty smart. “Good players can do that,”...

Indians 8, Twins 3: Santiago had a bad day

Indians 8, Twins 3: Santiago had a bad day

At least we won the series. Earlier today I wrote a piece on Hector Santiago and how he hasn’t given up many home runs this year. Today he allowed 3 of them, doubling his season total. This is all my fault. In the first, Jason Kipnis hit a solo shot to lead off the game for the Indians. In the 2nd, a single, a balk, a single, and a 2-run homer by Lonnie Chisenhall made the score 4-0. Carlos Santana lead off the 4th inning with a solo dong, and after a 2-out walk, Hector’s day was done. The new guy Adam Wilk came in and gave up a single, and then Jason Kipnis hit another home run,...
