Cleveland - All-Star week is officially over, but Cleveland went out with a bang Tuesday night.
Tribe pitcher Shane Bieber, who was named to the squad just days before the game itself due to injury, threw a scoreless fifth inning, striking out the side in order.
Bieber talked with the media after the game, talking about the love he has for the city of Cleveland.
Another heartwarming moment as fellow Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco was honored during the game for his fight against Leukemia.
The praise continued to pour in for Bieber, including from the last Indian to win the All-Star Game MVP award, Sandy Alomar, who did it right here at Progressive Field in 1997.
Fans also saw Alomar and former tribe great CC Sabathia throw out and catch the first pitch of the game. Even Cleveland Browns starting Quarterback Baker Mayfield made a cameo appearance, despite being on his honeymoon.
Now, the focus shifts from All-Star festivities to a possible Indians playoff push. The Tribe sit 5.5 games back of the Minnesota Twins in their quest for a fourth consecutive Central Division Title.
