The Indians are 5-3 since last Saturday, and in that time, Cleveland was extremely tough on opposing relief pitchers…on and off the diamond.
First, there was Glen Perkins, whom the Tribe referred to as “Scott” in two tweets, leading to a correction from the man himself.

However, the worst part might have been what officers told him when he was trying to decide whether he should press charges. “They said it happens a lot, actually.”
UPDATE (and hat tip to Rob Mixer): Tanner Scheppers appears to have misremembered what happened. Says a witness: “He lost a bar fight.”
