Five Notes on the Indians’ First Month

It all seems to be clicking for the Tribe as we wrap up April, which has traditionally been the month the Indians struggle the most.

Ending the month on a high note, the Indians finished the month 14-10, good for first place in the American League Central. Culminating with a big 12-4 offensive outburst on Sunday to take down the Mariners, the Indians have now claimed its fourth straight series victory and are not scheduled for a 10-game road trip that will keep the team out of Cleveland until mid-May.

Keeping in Games– Facing only one losing skid in the month, the Indians only gave up eight or more runs twice during the entire month. Despite a shaky first couple of weeks by the starting pitchers, the bullpen was the band-aid to all bleeding by maintaining one of the best ERAs in baseball and keeping runs out past the seventh inning. Ranked as the second-best bullpen in baseball, behind the Chicago White Sox, the Indians’ pen as a unit has a 2.25 ERA over 68 innings pitched this season. Now that the starting pitching has come back into its own, the Indians have made the tough climb up and are now in a respectable position going forward.
