After losing four straight, the Scrappers hoped a return to Eastwood Field would provide some much needed home-cooking. Despite a second straight strong start from Luis Dejesus , the Scrappers offense was unable to generate enough offense to give him a win as they lost 3-2 and dropped their record to 2-6 on the season.

On a perfect night at Penn State University, Mahoning Valley played its best game yet against the State College Spikes. An exciting game which came down to the final at bat, Mahoning Valley's 9th inning rally fell just short when Jairo Kelly grounded out against Spikes' releiver Pat Ludwig to end the game. The Scrappers (2-5) ended their series with the State College Spikes with nothing to show for it getting swept in four outings.

The Scrappers' lost their second straight game due to a lack of offense, and for the fourth consecutive game the Scrappers' failed to score more than two runs against their opponent.

After a long winter and, for many guys, an extended stay in Arizona, the Mahoning Valley Scrappers finally got to experience their own opening day majesty as they won an exciting extra inning affair 2-1 over the Jamestown Jammers. Toeing the rubber for the Scrappers was Luis Dejesus, recently assigned to Mahoning Valley after a short stint in Lake County.

Juan Romero continued his dominant streak amid a heartbreaking loss for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers on Tuesday night. The Scrappers faced off with the Jamestown Jammers in their second game of the season, but the outcome was not what the Scrappers expected as they struggled to gain offensive momentum and get on base, losing 3-1.

Right-handed pitcher Jacob Lee, the Indians 9th round pick in this year's draft, is one of the newest members of their farm system. The draft was an emotional high for him, especially after such a big low last season when he was not drafted. Tony talked to Lee a couple of days ago and welcomes him to the Indians' family.
