On Saturday morning, we hosted our #PlayBall Clinic, with Tribe players Michael Brantley and Yan Gomes visiting with 50 area youngsters. Those youth participants, ages 9-14 from the Cleveland Baseball Federation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland and BBuzz Baseball, played games and learned fundamental baseball skills.

The clinic, led by Youth Baseball Development Manager and former big leaguer Matt Kata, gives kids the opportunity to enjoy the game of baseball in a fun environment and introduces kids to the sport who otherwise may not have the chance to experience it.

Francisco Lindor had three hits, including a game-changing three-run homer, in the Indians 7-3 win over the Tigers on Tuesday at Progressive Field. On the heels of the Tribe’s sweep of Detroit in Michigan April 22-24, the Indians are now 4-0 against their AL Central rival this season.

Lindor singled and scored in the first, doubled and scored in the third and smashed a three-run homer in the fifth to stake the Tribe to a 7-2 lead. He also made another fantastic defensive play to rob Detroit’s Justin Upton of a hit in the second.

Mike Napoli had a two-run double, and Yan Gomes and Michael Brantley added RBI singles. Josh Tomlin scattered nine hits over six innings to improve to 4-0 on the season.
