Around The Farm: May 18, 2013
Saturday's action in the minor leagues was headlined by the performances of a few former blue chippers in the Columbus lineup, along with an assist from a journeyman veteran. Meanwhile in Lake County, a starting pitcher turned in his most dominant start to date, while Akron and Columbus struggled to score enough runs to win. To read all about Saturday in the minor leagues, join Michael Hattery as he takes you Around The Farm.

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.

Around The Farm: May 15, 2013
If you like great pitching performances, then you might want to avert your eyes from last night in the Cleveland organization. The pitching at each of the affiliates left something to be desired, leaving the onus on the offense to make something happen. Some teams did better than others, especially a sometimes-forgotten outfielder in Lake County. To find out who this is and all you need to know about what happened in the minor leagues last night, join Jim Piascik go Around The Farm.

Wednesday’s day game proved to be victorious for the Captains as they dominated the Lugnuts 13-4 in nine innings at Classic Park. After Tuesday night's 7-4 loss to the Lugnuts, the Captains weren’t going to let a quick turnaround to an 11 a.m. game on Wednesday hold them back.

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.
