MacPhee is small in stature, but hopes for big things
The Indians organization prides itself on building around guys who bring a winning attitude to the ballpark each day. In the 13th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft, the Tribe found itself another one of those players in the form of Arizona State second baseman/outfielder Zach MacPhee. Working through a position change and inconsistent playing time, he has had an interesting season to date, and Mike Zavagno recently sat down with him to discuss it all.

Tony recently sat down and talked to the the wives of Lake County coaches Dave Wallace and Jeff Harris to get their side of the minor league lifestyle.

Captains break three-game streak with 10-6 win
The Lake County Captains were able to break free of a three game losing skid on Sunday afternoon with a 10-6 victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels. Felix Sterling broke from his recent role as the long man in the Lake County bullpen to toe the rubber as manager Dave Wallace’s starting pitcher on the afternoon. Wallace’s decision to hand the pill to Sterling proved to be just what the doctor ordered for a Captains team that had been scuffling on this road swing.
