Shane Bieber has made believers out of the Cleveland Indians. In return, they plan on making him a fan of the Grammy-winning singer with his surname.
The rookie right-hander walked onto the field with Baby by Justin Bieber blaring on the sound system, and then struck out nine in a career-high seven innings as Cleveland rolled to a 10-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
Shane is obviously fun to play behind because he works fast and he knows how to execute pitches, said Alonso, who went 2 for 4 with his second slam of the season. The best thing I see is he’s always moving out there, attacking the hitters.
Zach McAllister and George Kontos each got three outs to finish the five-hitter for Cleveland’s eighth shutout of 2018. The Indians are 5-0 against the Tigers at Progressive Field this year, outscoring them by a 28-5 margin.
Detroit right-hander Mike Fiers (5-4) surrendered four runs in five innings, including a two-run homer by Encarnacion and a solo shot by Lindor. He has one victory in his last seven starts.
If we all start being negative and having a bad attitude and throwing things, that would not be productive, he told reporters before Wednesday’s game in Atlanta, per The Associated Press. Now it makes you feel better sometimes, but it’s the worst thing you can possibly do, in my opinion.
HOT TIME IN QUEENS: Fire breaks out at Citi Field with Mets on road
I’m sure the fans would love to see people throwing stuff, and we’re not happy with what’s going on. Just because we try to approach it the right way doesn’t mean we’re accepting it.
Hours after Callaway spoke, the Mets played a crisp game and beat the Braves 4-1. They salvaged a split of the four-game series and finished an eight-game road trip with a 3-5 record. A bullpen that had melted down four times in the previous five games allowed just a run over four innings in relief of starter Jason Vargas.
People were throwing things (and flinging expletives) after the ‘pen squandered a four-run lead and, eventually, the game Tuesday.
