#TribeTownInMotown: Cleveland Indians fan bus trip to Detroit Sept. 29, how to win

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

This year, our annual social media follower trip is headed back to Detroit on Sept. 29 for our 1PM game against the Tigers at Comerica Park — hopefully to celebrate an AL Central Division title clinch (or already clinched!).

Each participant will get a seat on the bus (departing from Progressive Field), a game ticket and $10 fun money to use at Comerica for food or drink. The bus will depart from Comerica Park to return to Cleveland 30 minutes after the game’s final out.

Here’s how you can win your way on the bus: We have 15 open spots for winners (each will be able to bring a guest), and will be giving those spots away all day on our next off day, Thursday, Sept. 1.

There will be contests in which you have to perform tasks, simple Retweet-to-win contests and more.

So make sure you’re following us on Twitter and stay tuned on Sept. 1!

PHOTO GALLERY: Eighth-inning Jose Ramirez homer gives Cleveland Indians series win over Toronto Blue Jays

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Indians rallied again to beat Toronto, 3-2, to win the teams’ weekend (2-1) and season series (4-3). The Tribe won on a walkoff (3-2) on Friday and lost (6-5) by a run on Saturday. The club’s AL Central lead remains seven games, as the Tigers beat Boston in Detroit.

Jose Ramirez, who tied Friday’s game in the ninth with a solo shot, hit a two-run homer in the eighth on Sunday to give the Tribe the lead. Cody Allen earned his 24th save.

Ramirez has hit safely in 19 of 20 August games, and is hitting .383 with five homers and 15 RBI this month.

Down, 2-0, the Tribe rallied in the sixth, on three consecutive singles by Carlos Santana, Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor, to cut the lead to 2-1. But a double play and strikeout later and Toronto starter Marcus Stroman had escaped.

Corey Kluber struck out eight in 6.2 innings, allowing those two runs. He lowered his ERA to 3.13 and continued to be a contender in, if not the leader of, the AL Cy Young race.

PHOTO GALLERY: Cleveland Indians win on second straight Tyler Naquin walk-off

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tyler Naquin hit a walkoff inside-the-park home run – his second straight game-winning RBI – as the Indians beat the Jays, 3-2 in front of 30,665 fans at Progressive Field. The Indians lead the American League Central by seven games, as Detroit lost to Boston.

Naquin’s walkoff inside-the-parker was the second in club history, with the other coming in 1916 – by Braggo Roth at Dunn Field (later named League Park). Naquin’s sac fly in the ninth on Thursday night scored Abraham Almonte to beat the White Sox. The Indians have seven walk-off wins this season.

Trevor Bauer struck out a career-high 13 batters, the seventh time he’s struck out 10 or more batters in his career.

Russell Martin hit a two-run homer in the first — after which Bauer allowed only three singles and a walk — to stake the Jays to the lead.

The Tribe rallied in the sixth, as Jason Kipnis singled, moved up on a passed ball and error, and scored on Mike Napoli’s RBI single that cut the lead in half.

“It’s an exciting time to be joining the Indians organization and ownership group. It’s a strong, storied franchise with a great deal of promise this year and beyond. I look forward to working closely with Paul and helping him further the organization and team in any way that I can,” said JOHN SHERMAN, Indians Vice Chairman.

Cleveland Indians Executive Chef Josh Ingraham to represent Ohio in World Food Championships

Meatball 1

Cleveland Indians Executive Chef Josh Ingraham never stops pushing boundaries in the kitchen by constantly coming up with innovative and interesting creations. His latest — “The Un Meatball Sandwich” — a dish that he originally created for a guest at the Terrace Club at Progressive Field. “The Un Meatball Sandwich” features a bacon wrapped meatball with sweet potato angel hair and cranberry demi-glace; and is now an award-winning entree!

Ingraham entered the recipe in the Taste of America Challenge, winning a slot to represent Ohio in the World Food Championships this coming November in Orange Beach, Alabama. When asked about the opportunity, Ingraham said, “I’m thrilled to go and proud to have the chance to represent our team at Progressive Field.”  At the World Food Championships, Ingraham will compete against 65 of the country’s top culinarians.

 

We can’t wait to see and taste what he comes up with next!
