CLEVELAND, OH — Indians right-hander Mike Clevinger took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon as details continue to emerge about the Astros cheating scandal. The man known as “Sunshine” had some harsh words for those involved after more allegations surfaced.

Clevinger sent a series of tweets that called out the Astros organization, its' players and fans that are defending their actions.

Clevinger started Game 3 of the 2018 American League Division Series at Progressive Field against Houston. He allowed one run and three hits in five innings, but the Indians gave up 10 runs in the final three innings and the Astros cruised to an 11-3 win.

Allegations came out on Thursday that accused Astros stars Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman of wearing electronic buzzers that tipped them to pitches during games. 

Former Indians starter Trevor Bauer has been outspoken on the matter. Bauer said he's heard "from multiple parties" that the Astros used buzzers to gain an advantage. 

Bauer has ripped the Astros on social media, posting multiple videos about the allegations.

He even posted a video of former Astros manager AJ Hinch, who criticized Bauer for being critical of the Astros in the past.
