Trevor Bauer lasted just 1 2/3 innings Monday against the Yankees, giving up four unearned runs.

Bauer was making the start on short rest, but you wouldn’t know it based on the radar gun that regularly had him hitting the high-90s. However, the right-hander was unable to pitch around a Giovanny Urshela error in the second, giving up four straight two-out hits as the Yankees mounted a 4-0 lead to KO Bauer. The Bombers wound up with six unearned runs on the night, as Urshela made an additional error and Danny Salazar also had one. The Indians will turn to Corey Kluber in Game 5 as they look to avoid losing a sixth straight potential playoff series clincher.

Indians manager Terry Francona announced Sunday night that Trevor Bauer will start for the Indians in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Monday.

Bauer dominated this Yankees' squad in Game 1 of the series in Cleveland, allowing just two hits while striking out eight over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. The right-hander seemed pumped about the assignment and told reporters afterwards, "If I could draw it out, personally, this is how I'd pitch every time." He'll oppose Luis Severino on Monday.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Trevor Bauer could be available for a potential Game 4 of the ALDS.

The Indians have yet to decide who would start a potential Game 4, with it coming down to Bauer, Danny Salazar or Josh Tomlin. Bauer was outstanding in a victory in the first game of the series, limiting the Yankees to just two hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Trevor Bauer allowed just two hits over 6 2/3 innings and struck out eight in the Indians' 4-0 win over the Yankees in Game 1 of the ALDS.

A surprise pick for Game 1, Bauer came through in a big way, shutting down the Yankees just as he did in his two regular-season starts (one run in seven innings on Aug. 4 and one run in six innings on Aug. 30). Andrew Miller and Cody Allen finished the shutout tonight, and if there's any positive the Yankees can take away, it's that they made those two throw a combined 50 pitches with another game coming up on Friday. The only problem there is Corey Kluber is starting for the Indians, and he might not need much help if he's on.

Trevor Bauer will start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.

Corey Kluber will stay on his regular schedule and start Game 2. He'll be followed by Carlos Carrasco for Game 3 and then Josh Tomlin for Game 4, though things could change depending on where the series stands. Kluber could return for a potential Game 5.

Trevor Bauer earned his 17th victory of the season on Friday, limiting the White Sox to just one run four hits over six innings.

The right-hander whiffed seven and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. Once again, the Indians provided ample run support and all Bauer had to do was cruise to an easy victory. The only blemish on his night was a solo shot given up to Yolmer Sanchez in the fourth. He finishes the regular season with a 4.19 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and career-high 196 strikeouts in 176 1/3 innings.

Trevor Bauer pitched seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday.

Bauer went six scoreless before giving up the tying run in the bottom of the seventh. It was just his second no-decision in three months, and he's still 9-2 in 13 starts since the All-Star break.

Trevor Bauer gave up four runs over 5 1/3 innings Friday as the Indians fell to the Royals.

Lorenzo Cain drove in the go-ahead run after Bauer was pulled in favor of Joe Smith in the top of the sixth. Bauer gave up nine hits — including solo homers to Alcides Escobar and Brandon Moss — while walking one and striking out six. This was his first loss since way back on July 16. He’ll try to get back in the win column next week against the Angels.

Trevor Bauer earned his 16th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Orioles to two runs on seven hits over his 6 1/3 innings.

Bauer racked up seven strikeouts on the night and didn't issue a free pass. After holding the O's off the board through the first five innings, Jonathan Schoop got him for an RBI single in the fifth inning and Chris Davis added a solo homer in the seventh. Sunday's win was the fourth for Bauer during the Indians' 18-game winning streak. He'll do battle against the Royals his next time out at home on Friday.

Trevor Bauer struck out nine over 6 1/3 innings of work in Monday’s 5-3 victory over the White Sox.

Bauer gave up just a single and a hit by a pitch through four scoreless frames before Rymer Liriano homered following a Tim Anderson single. The right-hander held the White Sox off the scoreboard the rest of the way, though, ultimately surrendering only three hits and a walk on the day. Bauer’s ERA has dropped from 5.58 to 4.39 over his last nine starts. He’ll get the Orioles at home next.

Trevor Bauer held the Yankees to one run in six innings to win the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Bauer was 7-8 with a 5.59 ERA after lasting less than an inning in his first start after the All-Star break. Since then, he's 7-0 in eight starts, posting a 2.42 ERA and a 56/18 K/BB ratio in 52 innings. The Indians will be quite a bit scarier in October if he can keep this up.

Trevor Bauer struck out eight while allowing four runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Bauer yielded only a solo homer through three innings, but he got into trouble with two outs in the fourth. After he walked Rafael Devers with a full count, a Xander Bogaerts two-run triple and a Mitch Moreland RBI single did the rest of the damage. The right-hander gave up seven hits and walked three on the evening. It wasn't as sharp as some of his previous outings, but the win ran Bauer's streak to six in a row, and he still hasn't lost since the first start after the All-Star break. The 26-year-old is 13-8 with a 4.59 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 157/51 K/BB ratio heading into Tuesday's start against the Yankees.

Trevor Bauer threw 6 1/3 shutout innings as the Indians blanked the Royals 5-0 on Saturday.

Bauer bent, yielding seven hits and walking two, but he never broke, keeping the Royals at bay in critical at-bats. It's the continuation of what's been a really good second half for the 26-year-old, who's 5-1 since the break and who's registered five quality starts in his last six outings. Bauer is now 12-8 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 149/48 K/BB ratio over 134 innings in total. He's got a tall order ahead of him Thursday when the Red Sox are in town.
Sun, Aug 20, 2017 12:02:00 AM

Trevor Bauer struck out 11 batters over 6 2/3 innings Monday in a win over the Red Sox.

Bauer gave up three home runs -- two of them to Rafael Devers -- but they were all solo shots and he was backed by seven runs from the Indians offense. Bauer is now 4-0 over his last five starts, with 39 strikeouts in 33 2/3 innings. He also boasts a 2.41 ERA in that span. The 26-year-old right-hander will look to keep rolling in his next scheduled outing on the road against the Royals.
