1977 At Fenway Park, the Indians (13) and the Red Sox (6) established a major league record for the most runs scored by both teams in one inning. The eighth inning barrage proves to be too much for Boston as Cleveland beats the home team, 19-9.
1982 A crowd 62,443 fans shows up with the game-time temperature 38 degrees with a wind chill of 17 to see the Indians drop the season opener to the Rangers, 8-3. The team removed five hundred tons of snow from the Municipal Stadium field before the game.
2007 After four days of weather-induced postponements, including blinding snow and sub-freezing temperatures, the Cleveland Indians play their home opener on the road, beating the Angels at Miller Park in Milwaukee, 7-6. The last time a series changed venues, the games were played in U.S. Cellular Field when the Marlins hosted the Expos in Chicago due to Hurricane Ivan hitting Miami in September of 2004.
2012 The Indians announce Carlos Santana has signed a five-year extension, with a club option for a sixth year, reportedly worth $21 million. The 26 year-old catcher joins the team's shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who signed a two-year extension last week with the Tribe, as a player with less than three years of service locked up through their arbitration-eligible years.
2013 The Red Sox regular-season span of 794 sellouts ends when a less-than capacity crowd attends the team's 8-5 loss to the Orioles at Fenway Park, easily surpassing the previous baseball record of 455 full houses at Jacobs Field, established by the Indians from 1995 to 2001. With the addition of postseason games bringing to the total to 820, the franchise also passed the Portland Trailblazers' mark of 814 consecutive sold-out contests, making Boston's stretch the longest in the history of major professional sports.
2014 Twenty-four year-old sophomore hurler Danny Salazar strikes out ten White Sox batters in 3.2 innings during the Indians' loss at U.S. Cellular Field, marking the first time since 1914 that a starting pitcher whiffed ten batters without finishing the fourth frame. The right-hander gives up five earned runs and six hits and gets all his outs via the strikeout, except for Adam Eaton, who is thrown out at second base, trying to stretch a single into a double for the first out in the third inning.
