Trevor Bauer was handed a no-decision after giving up three runs in six-plus innings against the Twins on Friday.

Bauer allowed four hits (including two home runs) while striking out six and walking none. He was in line for the victory before Cody Allen blew a save in the bottom of the ninth inning. Bauer has struggled with consistency this season, posting a 4.06 ERA and 141/57 K/BB ratio in 148 2/3 innings over 25 starts. He'll hope to finish the year strong next week against the Royals.

Cody Allen blew his fourth save of the season Friday against the Twins.

Protecting a one-run lead, Allen struck out Trevor Plouffe to begin the bottom of the ninth before giving up a double to Kurt Suzuki and a single to Oswaldo Arcia. Aaron Hicks then hit a potential double-play grounder to shortstop Jose Ramirez, but the ball bounced off his glove and he was only able to get the force out at second base. The tying run scored on the play and the Twins went on to win the game in the 10th inning. Allen is now 22-for-26 in save opportunities this season while putting up a 2.13 ERA and 89/26 K/BB ratio over 67 2/3 innings.

Michael Brantley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run against the Twins on Friday.

Brantley now has 20 home runs on the year to go along with 22 stolen bases. He's the first Indians player with a 20/20 season since Shin-Soo Choo did it in 2009 and 2010.

Ryan Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.

Raburn will need 6-8 weeks of rehab to recover from an operation that repaired a lateral meniscus tear. His normally offseason routine might be delayed a bit, but he'll be fine for spring training. Raburn batted just .200/.250/.297 with four home runs over 74 games for the Tribe this season.

Danny Salazar stymied the Astros over 7 1/3 innings on Thursday, allowing just one run, but took a no-decision as the Indians needed 13 innings to pull out a 2-1 victory.

Salazar was in line for the loss until Carlos Santana delivered an RBI single in the ninth inning. It was a masterful outing, as he limited the Astros to five hits and a walk while striking out nine. Salazar has had quite the turnaround since rejoining the Indians to start the second half, sporting a 3.06 ERA over his last 11 starts. On the season, he owns a 4.02 ERA with a 1.38 ERA and a 112/32 K/BB ratio. Salazar will face the Royals at home on Tuesday next.

Cody Allen struck out a pair of batters in a scoreless 13th inning, picking up his 22nd save in Thursday's win against the Astros.

Though Allen allowed a one-out single to Robbie Grossman, he was never in any real danger. The right-hander is now 22-for-25 in save chances with a 2.03 ERA and an 87/26 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings.
Sep 19 - 12:49 AM

Jose Ramirez finished 3-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in Thursday's 13-inning win against the Astros.

Ramirez scored both of the Indians' runs, touching home for the tying run in the ninth on a Carlos Santana single, and scoring the go-ahead run in the 13th on a Mike Aviles sacrifice fly. Ramirez had been held to just three hits in his previous 23 at-bats entering the contest, and still sports a mediocre .254/.299/.328 slash line on the season.
Sep 19 - 12:44 AM

Carlos Carrasco pitched a two-hitter for his first career shutout Wednesday as the Indians beat the Astros 2-0.

Carrasco fanned 12. Both hits he surrendered were infield singles to Jose Altuve, and he also walked just one batter in the 98-pitch gem. This comes 10 days after he came within an out of a shutout against the White Sox. He's been one of baseball's very best pitchers the last six weeks; he's allowed one or no runs in seven of his last eight starts.
Sep 17 - 10:41 PM

Jose Ramirez went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and is hitless in 10 at-bats in the series against the Astros.

The Indians were too cheap to promote Francisco Lindor, so Ramirez will finish out the season at shortstop, even though he hasn't proven to be any kind of threat at the plate. He's currently hitting .246/.293/.318 in 195 at-bats.

Ryan Raburn needs surgery to repair a damaged meniscus in his left knee.

He's done for the year. Raburn was a pleasant surprise for the Indians last season, but he'll finish 2014 with a disappointing .200/.250/.297 batting line and four home runs over 74 games. The 33-year-old is under contract for $2.5 million next season.
Sep 17 - 6:25 PM

Corey Kluber struck out 14 Astros hitters Tuesday, yielding one run over seven innings in the Indians' 4-2 win.

Kluber's remarkable season continues. The right-hander mowed down the Astros for his 16th win, scattering seven hits and two walks on the evening. The win was his third straight after a three-game losing streak. Kluber will take a 2.42 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 244/48 K/BB ratio into Sunday's start at the Twins.
Sep 16 - 11:51 PM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Astros Tuesday.

Gomes hit the homer, his 19th of the year, in the sixth inning to give the Indians a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The catcher is setting personal bests across the board this year, owning 64 RBI to go with a .286/.320/.477 line.
Sep 16 - 11:44 PM

Cody Allen was asked to get four outs Tuesday, pitching 1 1/3 scoreless innings to earn the save against the Astros.

With runners on first and second and two outs, Allen was called on to face Jason Castro. He got Castro to pop out, ending the threat, and he proceeded to toss a scoreless ninth to earn his 21st save. The 25-year-old has emerged as a legitimate closer this year, owning a 2.06 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 85/26 K/BB ratio over 65 2/3 innings.
Sep 16 - 11:38 PM

Chris Dickerson has elected free agency.

He had been removed from the Indians' 40-man roster last week. Dickerson will seek another minor league deal over the offseason.
Sep 16 - 7:31 PM

Ryan Raburn (knee) might not return this season.

Raburn reported improvement with his left knee Tuesday, but he's set to undergo an MRI and the Indians seem unlikely to push him to return at this point. It would be the end of a disappointing season for Raburn, who has hit just .200/.250/.297 with four homers over 74 games this season.
