Clevelinks: Cleveland Indians Fall To Rangers; Kyle Crockett Preview and More


The Cleveland Indians fell to the Texas Rangers 8-7 on Sunday, but they battled right down to the end. T.J. House pitched well again, allowing just his first run of the spring. Carlos Santana continues to struggle at the plate, as he went 0-for-3 to see his average drop to .091 this spring. Brandon Moss is expected to make his debut on Monday as the Tribe takes on the Mariners.

23-year-old Kyle Crockett didn’t get many innings in the minor league’s before his arrival to the Indians. 49 of them to be exact. He doesn’t expect to have many more, as he looks to build on his solid rookie season. The lefty posted a 1.80 over 43 games in 2014. The Tribe hopes he can repeat those numbers, as he gives them another solid option out of the bullpen.

For as many years as baseball has been around, there’s always something new to see. The Atlanta Braves no-hit the Houston Astros for 10 innings…and tied 2-2. The Braves used nine pitchers to stymie to Astros, but two RBI groundouts after loading the bases via two walks and a hit batter. “I’ve never seen anything like that — only in spring training” said Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez.
