Aeros Clinch Division, Though Fall 5-3
The Aeros missed an opportunity to clinch the Southern Division title in front of the home faithful Sunday afternoon, dropping a 5-3 final to the Binghamton Mets before 4,867 fans at Canal Park. Akron (81-53) clinched the title with a loss by Reading in a game played later in the evening.
The B-Mets struck first in the first, as consecutive doubles...
No, this is not a coronation. It’ll take more than a two-week hot streak and a couple game-winning homeruns to turn a former prospect’s dusty cocoon into a butterfly. But for Tribe fans desperate for a feel-good story at the end of a lost season, the ballad of Andy Marte just might be one worth latching on to.
As with any great coming-of-age drama, Marte’s quest for success and self-discovery...
I'm getting word that Triple-A Columbus right-handed pitcher Carlos Carrasco is Cleveland bound and will be officially added to the roster on Tuesday. He will make his major league debut and start Tuesday night in Detroit.
Clippers topple Louisville 5-3
The Clippers came out on top of a 5-3 decision over the Louisville Bats Saturday at Slugger Field.
Columbus jumped on young left-hander Travis Wood in the first inning with a pair of runs and scored two more in the third on a Wes Hodges single. Clippers starter Chuck Lofgren, meanwhile, shut out the Bats over the first four innings before yielding a run...
The report in the Cleveland Plain Dealer late last night about Low-A Lake County fireballing right-hander Jason Knapp's situation being more grave than initially anticipated and that we underwent an MRI on Friday set off a firestorm in my e-mail inbox last night and today.

As the deadline approached this past July 31st for teams to make non-waiver deals, right-hander Bryan Price was on the bus getting ready for his next start for High-A Salem, a Boston Red Sox affiliate. Little did he know that while he and his teammates were making the short trip from the team hotel to the field in Wilmington, DE that his baseball career was about to take a big turn.
