What kind of confidence does A.J. Hinch have in Dallas Keuchel? Leading the Indians 4-1 and after serving up a leadoff homer in the ninth to Michael Brantley, he let Keuchel face the tying run with a runner at first and Keuchel responded by striking out Jason Kipnis and getting Brandon Guyer on a diving stop by Carlos Correa. He's 4-0 with a 1.22 ERA.

Indians' Kipnis off DL, to make '17 debut

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who hit .275 with 23 home runs last season, was activated off the DL and will start Friday night.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

A scoreless tie was just broken in a bizarre way in Minnesota. With the bases loaded, Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer was in the process of delivering a 3-1 pitch to Jason Castro. Instead, his plant foot slipped off the rubber. Bauer held onto the pitch as he stumbled forward, resulting in a run-scoring balk. He went on to walk Castro anyway.
