Cleveland jumps on Boston, ride six-run sixth to 12-3 win
After Wednesday night’s rain-soaked finale to a short series with the Detroit Tigers, some timely hits and an explosive sixth inning lifted the Cleveland Indians over the Boston Red Sox with a 12-3 series premiere. Right-hander Zach McAllister (3-3, 2.89) received the start as the team picked up the pieces after Wednesday’s long-winded loss. Join Stephanie Metzger as she recaps Thursday's big win.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/15/13 - 5/21/13
The Captains went 3-4 this past week but the losing record is misleading of the progress the team has made. The team’s offense has started to catch on and even the likes of Claudio Bautista and Dorssys Paulino, who have been miserable at the plate, have started to swing better bats. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger gets us all caught up on the week that was for the Captains...

Martin's future remains to be seen, but his present looks good
Routine is one of baseball’s most imperative elements, especially for a pitcher. From workouts to repeating motions within deliveries to maintaining a healthy diet, continuity is key. Low-A Lake County right-handed pitcher Josh Martin recognizes the importance of such consistency and is off to a fine start at Lake County. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger gets us caught up with the big righty....

Captains dent TinCaps 3-2
The Lake County Captains put a dent in the Fort Wayne TinCaps’ evening with a 3-2 victory on Saturday night. Lefty Ryan Merritt (1-3, 3.50) received the start for Lake County to counter Fort Wayne righty Ruben Mejia (2-3, 2.70). The Captains raked some early run support for Merritt in the first as shortstop Dorssys Paulino reached on a one-out error and scored on a single off the bat of designated hitter Richard Stock.

Latimore is settling in well with Indians organization
Change is inevitable in the game of professional baseball, and for Double-A Akron outfielder Quincy Latimore, the changes started from the bottom – literally. Latimore, who was formerly a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, was required to wear his pants down over his socks before he joined the Cleveland Indians’ farm system. Now, he’s done away with the high socks and joined a new team.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/8/13 - 5/14/13
The Lake County Captains went 2-4 since last Wednesday with one rainout, and the offense is still attempting to heat up. It has not been pretty offensively for Lake County this season, but there are a few bright spots in the lineup and on the pitching staff as well. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger recaps the week that was for the Captains...

Peoples' career off to a fine start with Lake County
Baseball is full of the unexpected, and for Lake County Captains’ reliever Michael Peoples, the surprises started the day he was drafted. He was taken by the Cleveland Indians in the 14th round on the 2012 draft and to date has pitched well in his brief professional career. He is enjoying a good start to his season at Low-A Lake County, and the IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently caught up with him to discuss his start.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/1/13 - 5/7/13
It was an interesting week for the Lake County Captains as they were on the road in Peoria and Burlington last week. Peoria’s results were rare, as one game ended in a tie after it was suspended due to weather on Thursday and continued on Friday, and another game was cancelled. The team picked up two wins in Burlington as the offense produced seven runs on Sunday and the pitching was untouchable on Monday. All of that and more is recapped in this week's notebook...

Salazar's encouraging start has him on way to Columbus
Akron Aeros' right-handed pitcher Danny Salazar is presently 2-3 with a 2.67 ERA and a 51:10 K:BB. In three appearances from April 20-May 2, Salazar didn’t allow an earned run. On Tuesday, his final start with the Aeros, he tossed five innings against the Erie SeaWolves and yielded just one run. He is still working on his secondary stuff, but is expected to be promoted to Columbus in the next few days. Stephanie Metzger has the story...

Baker is adjusting to the pros in first year after draft
Life after the draft changes considerably for a player, but Lake County Captains’ starter Dylan Baker knows that baseball is just a game. Baker was taken by the Cleveland Indians in the 5th round of the 2012 draft and is an Alaska native who is still finding his way in pro ball. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger gives an update on the talented righty...

On-Deck with the Captains: 4/24/13 - 4/30/13
The Lake County Captains posted a 3-5 record since last Wednesday, but things are looking better as the offense is starting to come alive and the bullpen has provided some good outings. The warmer climate seems to be helping the starting pitchers a bit too, as the rotation crafted some better outings. The bullpen, however, hasn’t been able to hold opponents back as too many leads have been blown by the relievers. Join the IBI's Stephanie Metzger in his weekly Captains notebook....
