The 1st place Akron Aeros beat the Bowie Baysox 6-3 on Sunday in Bowie on the strength of an outstanding starting pitching performance from Chuck Lofgren. Lofgren gave up one run on just two hits in 6 innings of work, striking out three and walking just one. Some quick hit thoughts on the game:
Lofgren wasn’t overpowering, but he was extremely effective. He had the Baysox off balance all day,...

Huntington Park Exceeds Expectations
This past Saturday was a day of celebration in Columbus, Ohio.
It was the home opener for the Cleveland Indians new Triple-A affiliate the Columbus Clippers, and the city and fans were welcoming Indians baseball to the town for the first time in decades. In a marriage that was long past overdue, the Indians now have their Triple-A level farm team in their home state's capital. Not many teams,...

Columbus Blows Lead, Win
Columbus shutout Louisville through five innings, and took a 4-0 lead into the top of the 6th inning on Monday night. Lefty David Huff pitched well, but seemed to tire in the 6th when he allowed two runs. On the night he put up a quality start going 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, 2 walks and had 4 strikeouts.
He turned a 4-2 lead over to the bullpen...

The Kinston Indians have swept the Carolina League’s Weekly Awards as Matt Brown is the Player of the Week and Kelvin De La Cruz is the Pitcher of the Week in the Carolina League!
K-Tribe outfielder Matt Brown was just announced as the Carolina League Hitter of the Week hitting .457 (16-35) with six runs and 4 RBI last week for Kinston. The Wichita State alum is currently tops in the Carolina...

Clippers earn first Huntington Park victory
The Clippers didn't have to wait long for the first win at Huntington Park. Jack Cassel pitched six innings and Matt LaPorta hit the first Clippers home run to highlight a 7-5 victory Sunday afternoon over the Toledo Mud Hens.
Josh Barfield, in his second game as a Clipper, led off the bottom of the first with a single and would later take...

Today, advanced Single-A Kinston officially activated left-hander Ryan Miller who got the start in place of lefty Kelvin De La Cruz who was sent to Single-A Mahoning Valley (paper move, he is still in Kinston). Apparently, De La Cruz is okay but the Indians staff has taken precautionary measure to sit him for a start or two after he tweaked his elbow in practice a few days ago. This is certainly...

Defense Is Thompson's Hallmark
For Lake County shortstop Mark Thompson, coming back is not so bad.
Thompson, 24, just started up his second season about a week ago with the Indians Single-A affiliate in Lake County, and while it may have been a surprise to some to see him return there to start this season, he is taking it in stride and happy to be a part of the team.
"Nothing surprises me, it is baseball," said...

Constanza Everywhere in 7-3 Victory
April 18, 2009   (0 comments)
I was at the opening of Huntington Park today and the official beginning of Cleveland Indians baseball at the Triple-A level in their home state's capital.
Wow, what a day. What a ballpark. The only downer on this day was the final score with Columbus on the losing end 3-1. But the real winners today were the Indians, the city, and especially the fans. Not only has the Indians affiliation re-energized...

A couple quick Columbus updates:
- Right-hander Greg Aquino was taken out of the game before even throwing a pitch last night. He is suffering from some shoulder stiffness and is day-to-day.
- Infielder Josh Barfield has 72 hours to report to Columbus, though should be there today. He is expected to get regular playing time and will play second base and outfield.
- Second baseman...

I'm looking into adding some sort of scoreboard to the site specific only to the Indians affiliates. If anyone knows a way to do this or even how to make a widget or something that can accommodate this, please email me at I have zero tech knowledge on how to do this, but I felt it was worth asking about since it would be a nice addition to the site.

Clippers Rally Late, Lose 5-3
Columbus staked Toledo to a 3-0 early, a lead which held up until the 7th inning when Columbus put one on the board on an Andy Marte RBI triple.
After allowing a run in the bottom of the 7th inning, Columbus came right back with two runs in the 8th thanks to two Michael Brantley steals which setup a Matt LaPorta RBI single. Michael Aubrey followed with...

The Indians re-assigned left-hander Ryan Miller to advanced Single-A Kinston today and activated left-hander Anillins Martinez. Martinez is a bullpen guy, so another move should be coming down the pipeline soon to add a starter to the Lake County rotation and to remove a reliever. The two most likely choices to fill the open spot in the Lake County rotation are right-hander Danny Salazar or left-hander...
