Trevor Bauer notched a career-high 10 strikeouts while tossing 6 2/3 shutout innings but took a no-decision in the Indians' 3-2 win over the White Sox Sunday.

He gave up eight hits and walked three, getting removed after 117 pitches following a two-out single by Jose Abreu in the seventh. Bauer has been up-and-down since the beginning of June but finishes the first half having allowed just two earned runs over his last two outings. He’ll bring a 3.84 ERA with 70 strikeouts over 72 2/3 innings into the All-Star break.

Cody Allen struck out two over a perfect inning to record his 12th save of the season in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Allen preserved the one-run lead with ease, getting a groundout and a pair of swinging strikeouts to seal the victory. Indians manager Terry Francona has still refused to officially name Allen his closer, but no other Tribe reliever has recorded a save in nearly a month.

Yan Gomes was the offensive star for the Indians Sunday, notching an RBI single and a two-run homer in a win over the White Sox.

He drove in all three runs for the Tribe, with his go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning representing the winning run. Gomes' .261/.306/.436 batting line in the first half isn't anything to write home about, but he's slugged 12 homers while driving in 36 runs.

Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier went 2-for-5 with a triple and a home run for Low-A Lake County on Saturday.

Frazier has gone 7-for-10 with a triple and three home runs in his last two games, raising his season line from .253/.326/.389 to .268/.337/.435. He also struck out twice, and is second in the Midwest League with 97 strikeouts on the season.

Indians transferred DH Jason Giambi from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Giambi has been out for a month with left knee inflammation. He was moved to make room for pitcher Nick Maronde, who was acquired in a trade from the Angels.
Jul 12 - 7:35 PM

Indians acquired LHP Nick Maronde from the Angels for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Maronde had a 12.79 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP with seven strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings pitched for the Angels this year. They designated him for assignment on July 10.
Jul 12 - 7:30 PM

Chris Dickerson is not in the Indians starting lineup on Saturday due to a hamstring injury.

Dickerson has done a nice job filling in for the injured Michael Bourn, going 8-for-17 (.471) with an RBI and four runs scored in his first five games. He should be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Jul 12 - 2:33 PM

Indians recalled Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus.

He will return to the Indians rotation on Saturday against the White Sox, taking the place of the injured Justin Masterson. He owns a 5.89 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 43/19 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings with the Tribe this season.
Jul 12 - 11:07 AM

Indians optioned RHP Vinnie Pestano to Triple-A Columbus.

He has struggled in his limited time with the Indians this season, posting a 5.00 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and .333 batting average against over his first nine innings. He'll surely return at some point after the All-Star break.
Jul 12 - 11:05 AM

Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier went 5-for-5 with two home runs and a stolen base for Low-A Lake County on Friday, raising his season line to .266/.336/.419.

Frazier has hit a scorching .421/.463/.789 with two doubles and four home runs in July. For the season, Frazier has 95 strikeouts in 336 plate appearances (28.3 percent), and has 12 in 41 PA in July (29.3 percent). He will need to improve his pitch selection and decrease his swing and miss tendencies, but Friday was a glimpse at what he could become.
Jul 12 - 10:03 AM

Corey Kluber allowed four runs over six innings in a 7-4 win over the White Sox on Friday.

He struck out five and walked a pair. The four runs allowed were the most Kluber has given up in a start since June 4. Still, thanks to the support from his offense, he improved to 9-6 on the year. Coming off a strong 2013, Kluber has taken things to another level so far this season with a 3.01 ERA and 142/32 K/BB ratio over 131 2/3 innings of work.
Jul 11 - 10:38 PM

Cody Allen struck out the side in the ninth inning Friday against the White Sox for his 11th save of the season.

A pretty good day for Cleveland, all in all. With the victory, the Indians are now back to an even .500 at 46-46 on the year. Allen is 11-for-12 in save chances this season and owns a dominant 2.21 ERA and 53/16 K/BB ratio over 40 2/3 innings of work.
Jul 11 - 10:37 PM

Nick Swisher went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday's win over the White Sox.

Look who is finally showing some signs of life. Swisher has hit safely in seven straight games and has three home runs over his last five. Even with the recent hot streak, the 33-year-old is batting just .207/.289/.351 through 74 games this season.
Jul 11 - 10:36 PM

David Murphy launched a two-run home run Friday against the White Sox.

It was his first home run since way back on May 21. After joining the Indians on a two-year, $12 million contract over the winter, Murphy got off to a nice start with his new club, but he has seen his batting average drop over 50 points (from .284 to .243) over the past month.
Jul 11 - 10:36 PM

Indians sent RHP Mark Lowe outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Lowe had been designated for assignment earlier this week, but he's cleared waivers and decided to remain in the organization. He's allowed seven runs -- three earned -- over seven innings of work with the Indians this season.
