Tigers vs. Indians Preview: Buck Farmer stands in the way of history

Tigers vs. Indians Preview: Buck Farmer stands in the way of history

The Indians go for their 21st consecutive win on Wednesday afternoon against Farmer and the Tigers. Starting pitching can come from just about anywhere in the major leagues. Tigers fans are still mourning the loss of Justin Verlander, a former first round pick who reached the major leagues within a year of being drafted. Those same hapless Tigers were blanked on Tuesday by Corey Kluber, a fourth-rounder-turned-ace out of a small college in Florida. I don’t know that anyone is expecting Mike Clevinger to turn into Corey Kluber, but the parallels are obvious. Drafted out of a small Florida...

Tigers get last chance to stop streaking Indians in final season meeting today

Although it seems like ages ago, the Tigers actually won five of their first seven games against Cleveland this season, including two series victories in April. CLEVELAND -- After pitching his third shutout of the season and sixth of the year to give the Cleveland Indians their 20th consecutive victory, Corey Kluber appeared to crack the slightest hint of a smile.  Then he returned to his normal stoicism.

Indians 2, Tigers 0 - Boyd, Tigers can’t stop history

Matt Boyd pitched a gutsy effort but the Indians win their 20th straight game Matthew Boyd pitched arguably his best game of the year, and possibly his career, but unfortunately a guy named Corey Kluber was on the mound for the Indians and there is no margin for error when he is on his game. In the end the Cleveland Indians would make history as they tied the record for most consecutive wins in the American League at 20 straight games. That one hiccup would come on the first batter of the game for the Tribe. In an eight pitch battle, Francisco Lindor would hit a leadoff home run to put...
