Indians' Twitter account uses Taylor Swift lyrics to live tweet game

Thursday June 4th, 2015

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. 

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.
