Indians' Twitter account uses Taylor Swift lyrics to live tweet game
Taylor Swift is playing a concert at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday night. The Indians, who play their home games across the street, are out of town in Kansas City, but they still managed to get in on the T-Swift party.
During the team's game against the Royals, the Indians' Twitter account live tweeted the game as usual. But the team's game tweets on Wednesday involved a lot of Taylor Swift.
Kansas City took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on an Alcides Escobar RBI double, which scored Mike Moustakas. Cleveland's account tweeted that "we knew Escobar and Moustakas were trouble when they walked in," referencing Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble," which we're pretty sure was not actually written about Alcides Escobar and Mike Moustakas.
The team kept up its stream of T-Swift themed tweets as the game continued.

KC takes 1-0 lead after 1, as Escobar doubles and Moustakas singles.

Bourn keeps cruising, can't stop won't stop moving -- he doubles, moves to third on Kip's groundout and scores on Aviles' single.— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) June 4, 2015
Welp -- looks like KC did feel like 2-2...— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) June 4, 2015
But the 9-4-2 putout -- Moss-Kip-Gomes -- prevents Moustakas from scoring!
Swift paid homage to Cleveland sports on Wednesday too, asking her Cleveland crowd with they were "all in," a reference to the NBA Finals-bound Cavaliers' playoff slogan.
Working the Taylor Swift show and she asked the sold out crowd "Cleveland are you ALL IN" the fans went ballistic.— Ahmaad Crump (@CavsAhmaad) June 4, 2015
