The Tribe won their second straight game on Tuesday, defeating the Seattle Mariners 4-3.
Here’s Tuesday, March 8th’s edition of “5 Notes from Goodyear.”
1. Trevor Bauer Looks Solid
The right-hander pitched three solid innings, allowing one earned run, while walking two and striking out two.
It was a good way for Bauer to bounce back after giving up two runs in two innings in his Cactus League debut last week.
2. Mike Napoli Crushing It
Napoli is off to a fantastic start this Spring. He went 2-for-3 with an RBI on Tuesday, raising his average to .417 in Cactus League play.
3. Juan Uribe’s Debut
Uribe made his first appearance of Cactus League play, getting the start at DH. Uribe with 1-for-3 with a double on the afternoon.
4. Jose Ramirez Stays Hot
Ramirez had his second-straight impressive game on Tuesday. The switch-hitter belted his second home run on Monday and followed that up Tuesday by going 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored.
Ramirez is hitting .333 this Spring so far.
5. Brian Shaw Bounces Back
The right-handed setup man made his second appearance of Spring Training. His first appearance was not what he was hoping for, as Shaw allowed five earned runs in two-thirds of an inning on March 3rd.
On Tuesday, Shaw came in with a save opportunity in the ninth, and only allowed one hit, earning the save.
The Tribe has now improved to 2-4-2 in Cactus League play and will look to extend the win-streak to three games on Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs.
First pitch from Sloan Park is set for 3:05 PM ET.
