Bat comes through as Scrappers win 6-5
When you’re mired in a slump, the bat can feel like a lead pipe in big situations. The Scrapper offense must have been collectively swinging what felt like a thirty pound lead pipe, and they must have exchanged the lead for an old fashioned piece of lumber Thursday, though, as the big hits finally came multiple times, and helped give the Scrappers a big come-from-behind 6-5 win against the State College Spikes.

For Naquin, it's all about attitude and determination
Indians 2012 first round pick outfielder Tyler Naquin is off to a good start to his professional debut with short season Single-A Mahoning Valley. But it is not just his performance on the field with his bat, arm and hustle that makes him so endearing, it is his attitude and determination that have already earned big points with Indians staffers and fans.

No end in sight for offensive woes, Scrappers fall 2-1
It appeared that the Scrappers offense was poised to break out of their early season slump after showing some positive signs on Tuesday. Looks can be deceiving. The offense provided little positive to talk about on Wednesday, and despite solid pitching efforts, the Scrappers dropped their fifth game in six nights, losing 2-1 to the Williamsport Crosscutters.

Scrappers win 6-2, End skid at five
After a five game freefall, the Scrappers hope to have put their early season struggles behind them, picking up a big 6-2 win against the Crosscutters on Tuesday night. The offense didn’t waste any time putting runs on the board, plating five in the first two innings. Juan Romero was the first to strike, driving a ball into the Scrapper bullpen in right field to give the Scrappers a 2-0 advantage.

Scrappers fall 3-2, lose fifth straight
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.

State College holds of late Mahoning Valley rally
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.

Scrappers shut out by Spikes, 4-0
Mahoning Valley's offense struggled again on the road against the second opponent they've faced this year. The result was a 4-0 loss on Friday night to the State College Spikes, the short season Single-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. 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.

Lots of roster moves to begin second half
As expected, the Indians made made several roster moves today throughout their minor league system. With the start of the second half for the full season Single-A teams and the start of short season leagues, this is usually a time where there is a lot of movement. Tony recaps the flurry of roster moves....after the jump...

Scrapper offense stymied in 6-2 loss
It was a picture perfect night for baseball as the Scrappers looked to take the final game of their opening home-and-home series against the Jamestown Jammers Thursday. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t a sign of good things to come for the Scrappers, as they fell to the Jammers 6-2.

Naquin, Scrappers impress in home debut
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.
