Subject to change
(Editor’s Note: Leading up to the Nov. 12 announcement of the AL Cy Young Award, we’ll count down Corey Kluber’s 18 wins with a post per day recapping his victories.)
Date/score: August 4, 7-1
Opponent: Cincinnati Reds
Pitching line: 7.1 IP, 1 ER, 7 SO, 2 BB
2014 strikeout total: 177
Key at-bat(s): Kluber escaped jams in the first and third innings, then had little trouble until he left the game in the eighth. In the first, he induced a Brayan Pena groundout to end the inning, while in the third it was a Devin Mesoraco popout followed by another Pena groundout.
Notable: Kluber increased his career-long streak of innings pitched without allowing an earned run to 25 before allowing a run in the eighth against Cincinnati at Progressive Field. (Kluber allowed an unearned run on July 24 in Kansas City in his nine-inning outing, then pitched his Maddux on July 30.)

Monday was a special day for the Hamiltons.
Nick Hamilton, an Indians 2012 draft pick after helping lead the Kent State Golden Flashes to the College World Series that June, found himself in the lineup as the designated hitter on Monday as the Indians took on the Cincinnati Reds from Goodyear Ballpark. Originally, Nick Swisher was in the lineup as the DH, but when the Reds said pitchers should bat — Cincinnati was the home team — Indians Manager Terry Francona sent Swisher home.
When the DH was re-installed into the game, Hamilton got the call. And his dad, Indians radio play-by-play man Tom, was on hand for the incredible moment:
Said Nick Hamilton after the game: “It was really just a lot of fun. I’m just grateful for the opportunity to be able to get out there and get that first taste of playing in the big leagues. It was just a lot of fun and something I can learn from and build on from here.
“Eventually, looking back, I’m sure this is definitely something that I’m going to cherish.”

CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Today, March 17, marks
Saint Patrick’s Day, an annual holiday that commemorates Saint
Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of
Ireland…although Saint Patrick’s feast day was celebrated by the
Irish in Europe in the ninth and tenth centuries and became a holy
day of obligation in the early 1600’s, Saint Patrick’s Day did not
become an official public holiday until 1903…the government of the Republic of
Ireland began a campaign to use Saint Patrick’s Day to showcase the country
of Ireland and its culture during the 1990’s…since the Reds joined the Indians
in Goodyear in 2010, Cleveland and Cincinnati have played one another
every spring on St. Patrick’s Day, as today will mark the 5th straight year.
TODAY’S TILT: The Indians and Reds are set to meet today for the fourth time
this spring before closing out their head-to-head Cactus League series next
Monday, March 24 here at Goodyear Ballpark…after dropping the exhibition
opener to the Reds by a score of 8-3, the Indians took the next two decisions
from Cincy and went on to enjoy a ten-game stretch in which the club did not suf-
fer a single loss (9-0-1)…Cleveland is 12-9-3 against the club’s intrastate rivals
all-time in Cactus League play…beginning with the inaugural 2010 campaign, the
Indians won 5 straight and 6 of the first 8 meetings (6-1-1) here in Arizona, but
are 6-8-2 over the last 16 times Cleveland and Cincinnati have locked horns…
the regular season “Battle of Ohio” was a clean split (2-2) in 2013 as both
teams swept 2 game sets at their home parks; this year’s version of the Ohio
Cup will again feature a “home-and-home” as the 2 clubs will play four straight
games against each other from August 4-7 – the Tribe will host the Reds in the
first 2 contests followed by 2 games at Great American Ballpark…the Indians
hold a 44-41 (.518) record all-time against Cincinnati in regular season play.
SUNDAY’S CLEAN SWEEP: Cleveland swept a pair of split-squad road games
yesterday, improving to a Cactus League-best 14-3-2 this spring.
LATEST ROSTER MOVES: This morning the Indians announced several roster
moves relative to the Major League Spring Training roster…the club optioned
LHP SCOTT BARNES and LHP NICK HAGADONE to Triple-A Columbus…the
club also re-assigned RHP TRAVIS BANWART, RHP TYLER CLOYD, RHP
J.C. RAMIREZ and LHP MIKE ZAGURSKI to minor league camp.
TRIBE PITCHING NOTES: Cleveland’s pitching staff has registered a Cactus
League-low 3.09 ERA (59 ER/172.0 IP), which is also the 2nd-lowest in the Ma-
jors this spring behind only Miami’s 2.84 team ERA…JUSTIN MASTERSON has
worked 13.0 scoreless innings over 4 games/starts this spring, allowing just 6 hits
and 2 walks against 14 strikeouts; the 14 strikeouts are tied for team lead with
JOSH TOMLIN, who leads the team with 14.0 IP…BLAKE WOOD (7.0 IP, 4 H, 1
R-ER, 3 BB, 8 SO) has a team-high 7 appearances…CARLOS CARRASCO has
surrendered a single R/ER in 7.0 innings of work with 9 strikeouts, while notching
a pair of wins (team-high)…JOHN AXFORD (5.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R-ER) has fanned 7 in
5.0 innings of work…JOSH OUTMAN (5.0) and PRESTON GUILMET (4.0) have
yet to allow a run this spring.
UNDER THE LIGHTS: Cleveland will participate in the team’s first and only night
game of the spring on Tuesday, as the Indians are set to host the San Francisco
Giants at Goodyear Ballpark.
Cleveland shut out Cincinnati 4-0 on Friday afternoon at Goodyear Ballpark, as the Tribe pitching staff permitted just 3 hits and a trio of walks.
Starter ZACH McALLISTER retired 6 of the 7 batters he faced – save for one free pass – before giving way to JOSH TOMLIN, who followed with 2.0 spotless frames of his own and a pair of strikeouts. Five Tribe relievers carried the torch, recording 3 outs apiece to protect a 2-0 lead that RYAN RABURN provided with his 2-run HR off Homer Bailey in the 2nd inning. The Tribe plated 2 more runs in the 6th on CARLOS MONCRIEF’s RBI-single when a throwing error on the play permitted a second tally to come home.
The Indians will play their first true road game of the spring on Saturday when the team travels to Camelback Ranch for a 3:05PM ET first pitch against the Chicago White Sox. RHP AARON HARANG is scheduled to get the start opposite LHP John Danks. The broadcast will be available on the Indians Radio Network (WTAM in Cleveland) and through an online webcast on Indians.com.

YESTERDAY’S RECAP: The Indians fell to the Cincinnati Reds, 8-3, in the first game of the 2014 spring exhibition season…RHP TREVOR BAUER & newly signed RHP AARON HARANG each opened with scoreless frames before the Reds enjoyed the first of their 4 two-run innings…Chris Heisey led the offensive charge for the Redlegs, finishing with a home run, a double and a pair of RBI…TONY WOLTERS singled home RYAN RABURN in his first at bat of the spring in the bottom of the 5th…along with Harang, NICK HAGADONE and PRESTON GUILMET also tossed scoreless relief innings.
AROUND THE (HOT) CORNER: Carlos Santana is set to make his spring debut at third base for the Tribe this afternoon…Santana spent the offseason working at the hot corner including a stint with the Leones del Escogido of the Dominican Winter League.
THE FIRE DOWN BELOW: Indians prospects were well represented in the Cactus League opener yesterday afternoon, as INF ERIK GONZALEZ singled, swiped a bag and scored a run, CA TONY WOLTERS chipped in an RBI single and OF TYLER NAQUIN doubled…OF CARLOS MONCRIEF made a pair of impressive plays in right field, while LHP NICK HAGADONE and RHP PRESTON GUILMET each registered a scoreless inning of relief.
