CLEVELAND, Ohio – Brad Hand wanted a zero in the Progressive Field scoreboard. He put in four places.
After eight insertions of Zach Plesac’s mastery, the Indians did not.
Sometimes closures can lose games dripping while dripping. They seem to pay by the hour. Not so Hand lost 4: 0 to the White Sox on Wednesday night. He started the ninth innings without points and quickly replaced it.
Tim Anderson achieved a double advantage. Hand walked Yoan Moncada and hit Jose Abreu with a sock caliper to load the basics. Next was Yasmani Grandal, and Handui needed a shot. Instead of being the only White Sox run, the Grandal got into the victim̵7;s flight to the right field, he will have to escape three games played by the Indians.
It was Hand’s third show since the season opened on Friday and his second in so many days. He recorded records for the first two games, but questions remained.
He had no easy, no doubt, persuasion – the kind of rage that builds confidence not only in his hand, but also in his manager after he was shut down in September because of his tired left arm.
At the opening of Friday’s season, the handyman started ninth, hitting Kansas City’s Alex Gordon, whose Indians led 2-0. To save, he withdrew from three other doughs.
On Tuesday, Hand made it to the first double-bowl match against the White Sox, leading 4: 9 ninth. Anderson once again greeted him with a double. He withdrew from Moncada and Abreu, but Grandal scored 4-3. He ended the game by rescuing Edwin Encarnacion.
Then came Wednesday night’s mess. This was followed by eight Plesac advantages, during which he knocked out 11 of the highest players in his career.
As Rock said of Plesa, “For Zach to go eight innings during his first year’s march. This is unheard of. Even if we had started in April, you wouldn’t see a lot of starters going after eight innings. It just shows what work he put in during the dismissal to prepare. “
What happened on Wednesday night in the ninth introduction is part of the work that all closed people live with. When things go wrong, they not only ruin his night, but all those teammates who helped him reach the ninth-ninth game to save a victory or keep the game going at night.
“I was ready to come to summer camp and start the season,” Rock said. “My stuff is ready. Tonight I dropped just one hit. I put it in that jam. This is not the way I was hit. Some things happened. I put it in my jam. “
After Grandal’s sacrifice to fly, the Encarnacion approached the catcher to intervene with Beau Taylor to overload the foundations. Adam Cimber fired, and Eloy Jimenez hit the victim’s fly, and Luis Robert hit the two-release single.
“He’s coming into a league game and everything is coming out,” said Indian manager Terry Francona. He then abandons the double first step. He then strikes Abreu on the leg and there is the interception of the catcher. It just escaped from there. We couldn’t throw it away. “
Since the time of 2018. July 19 Acquired from San Diego, Hand saved 44 games for the Indians. Last year, he set a club record that saved the Nurt – 34 out of 39. While his speed may slow, he earned Francon’s confidence.
“On Tuesday, he moved to an altitude of 92 to 93 miles per hour,” Francona said. “(Radar gun) There is a tick or two slow in the progressive field. That part is coming.
“It simply came to our notice then. You are looking for a life to hide a little. Both trust him and a competitor. Sometimes you have to be patient, even when it’s not easy. “
Hands said it didn’t matter that he started ninth after eight unnecessary falls asleep by both staff members. Not believing in his defense, he said his job description had not changed.
“It simply came to our notice then. Every time you go out there you try to build zero, “Rokas said. “No matter what ball score you use, you are still trying to raise to zero. I just tried to keep the score 0-0 and give us a chance to win at the bottom of the ninth. “
