Indians' Nick Hagadone rewards Francona's confidence Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/31/15) Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone was called upon with the bases loaded in the seventh inning of a one-run game and delivered an inning-ending strikeout in his team's 4-3 win over the Mariners on Saturday.
"That's huge for me," Hagadone said of manager Terry Francona continuing to use him in key sutiations, per MLB.com. "Knowing that Tito has the confidence to put me out there in those situations, and that he doesn't lose that confidence if I have a couple bad outings, it's huge for my confidence. It's just great to play for a manager like that."
Hagadone, who finished the day with an inning of work and just one hit and no runs allowed, threw a cutter on his first pitch to Kyle Seager with the bases loaded.
"It's a new pitch," Hagadone said. "It just helps to keep them off-balance, because a lot of hitters, especially with me, are sitting on fastballs only. So, if I can just kind of throw something else up there in the strike zone, it kind of helps me not allow them to just sit on that."
Seager fouled off a fastball on the next pitch before swinging and missing at a curveball out of the zone to end the potential rally.
"Hags [made] some really big pitches in a key spot," Francona said. "I'm not really sure there wasn't a key spot, though, when you're in a game like that. They were putting pressure on us all night. We did some really good things to manage to hang on there."
Nick Hagadone takes loss in relief for Indians
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Indians reliever Nick Hagadone suffered his first loss since 2013, Tuesday against Texas.
Hagadone entered in the sixth and stranded the go-ahead run at third base. After retiring the first five batters he faced, Hagadone allowed the game-winning home run to Mitch Moreland with one out in the eighth.
"He pitched good. He got like five outs on nine pitches," manager Terry Francona said. "But he fell behind Moreland, and actually threw a ball, but because he was behind in the count Moreland cheated a little bit and hit it good. That's a shame because I thought he pitched really good."
It was the only baserunner he allowed in 1 2/3 innings.
Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone throws two scoreless Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone went two scoreless innings in Cleveland's 4-2 win over the Twins Saturday. Manager Terry Francona loves what he's seen from Hagadone so far, reports MLB.com.
"Hags threw the ball so well," Francona said. "He has the ability to do this. If you let an outing or two [affect your thinking], if you kind of put a guy in the penalty box, you're not going to get to see what he can do. That doesn't help anybody."
Hagadone has now thrown 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts and just two walks with a 3.38 ERA.
"He did an outstanding job," closer Cody Allen said. "Hags is a big part of this team. He's a guy that I know Tito likes to lean on, because he's a left-hander that can get righties and lefties out. He's got great stuff. He did a great job for us last year and we're looking for him to do the same thing this year."
Indians SP Trevor Bauer and company flirt with no-hitter
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Indians starter Trevor Bauer flirted with a no-no on Thursday against the Astros, but still managed to pick up the win in his first start of the season.
Bauer (1-0) was pulled with a no-hitter after throwing 111 pitches through six innings. He struck out a career-high 11 and walked five. Kyle Crockett and Scott Atchison each pitched a scoreless inning, respectively before Jed Lowrie broke up a combined no-hit bid with a one-out solo home run in the ninth inning off Nick Hagadone.
Bauer will return to the mound Wednesday at home against the White Sox. He pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings last season against Chicago.
