Thursday night’s pitching match up set Sonny Gray against Corey Kluber. We were blessed to watch Corey Kluber continue a historic season, pitching his third complete game of 2017, striking out 11, walking only one and allowing three hits.
On Friday, Aaron Judge came to play, after taking a day off on Thursday.
The Indians welcomed Joe Smith back to Cleveland Friday night where he pitched 0.2 innings. Smith spent four seasons with the Tribe from 2009-2013.
On Saturday, the Cleveland Indians honored Lou Boudreau with a statue outside of Progressive Field. Boudreau became a player-manager for the Cleveland Indians in 1942 and the very young age of 24 years old.
The Indians bullpen put on another show Saturday night, and this time the star was Danny Salazar. Salazar pitched seven innings, allowing four hits and struck out a career high 12 batters.
Despite Salazar’s record breaking night, the Yankees took Saturday’s game 2-1, but that didn’t stop Cleveland from ending the night with a fireworks show paying tribute to 1997 Top Billboard Hits.
On Sunday, the Indians activated Jason Kipnis from the DL and the fans were more than happy to have The Kid back in CLE. The Yankees finished the series with a win, leaving Cleveland breaking the series at an even 2-2.
