The Cleveland Indians have ended the Cleveland Browns’ seven-year winning streak in the teams’ annual Bowl For Kids Sake matchup Thursday night at Freeway Lanes in Parma.
The Browns had won seven straight and held a 7-3 edge in the teams’ all-time series. But the Indians — led by Reggie Hawthorne, a Progressive Field Retail Stand Captain who recently participated in the National Intercollegiate Bowling Championships for Notre Dame College — beat the Browns by about 7,000 pins.
Players who participated included Justin Masterson, Chris Perez, Yan Gomes and Bryan Shaw, while wives including Amanda Kluber, Meryl Masterson, Jenny Gomes, Kristin Shaw, Melanie Perez, Kathleen Reynolds and Meredith Chisenhall joined the festivities. Browns players including Jabaal Sheard, Billy Winn, John Hughes and Craig Robertson also were on hand, while mascots Slider and Chomps made appearances.

The Indians’ three-team, nine-player trade was the biggest news in the baseball world on Tuesday night, as the Tribe acquired young right-handed starting pitcher Trevor Bauer, and relievers Matt Albers and Bryan Shaw from the Arizona Diamondbacks, as well as outfielder Drew Stubbs from the Cincinnati Reds.
The Reds acquired Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald from the Indians in return, and sent young shortstop Didi Gregorious to the Diamonbacks, who also received Tony Sipp and Lars Anderson from the Indians. After news of the trade broke, many prominent national baseball journalists weighed in on the potential impact of the trade. A selection of their tweets and stories are below:

Jerry Crasnick @jcrasnick
I’m with @keithlaw: Really liked what #indians did in trade. Thought #reds did well to get Choo.
Love it. “@Buster_ESPN: The Indians are going to get Bauer in the deal with the Diamondbacks.”
Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN
The Indians need arms. And they get a good arm in Trevor Bauer, who was the No. 3 overall pick in 2011.
Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN
It really is amazing that the Indians ended up with Trevor Bauer essentially in return for a one-year rental, Shin-Soo Choo.
Chris Rose @ChrisRose

“Each of the three clubs is receiving one linchipin. The Indians: pitching prospect Trevor Bauer. The Reds: star outfielder Shin-Soo Choo. The Diamondbacks: shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius.”
“It’s a fascinating deal, because all three of the linchpins are completely different sorts of players…The Indians need arms, and Bauer’s a great start.”
What are your thoughts on the Tribe’s big trade?
