April 26, 2010   (0 comments)
There was explosions and mayhem in Kinston on Sunday, as the K-Tribe's offense put to rest any thoughts of slumber in a 15-2 victory over Myrtle Beach at Historic Grainger Stadium. Kinston hit six home runs to support the tandem of Nick Hagadone and T.J. McFarland, who once again put together a fantastic outing. McFarland got the win with six outstanding innings.
Here are the details to the...

Game Recap 4/25: Kinston Bats Explode For Six Home Runs
K-Tribe Pounds Pelicans 15-2
Kinston exploded for 15 runs on 15 hits including six home runs, as the Indians pounded the Pelicans 15-2 Sunday afternoon at Historic Grainger Stadium. It was the first time Kinston put up six home runs in a contest, since doing it against Myrtle Beach on June 8th, 2007. The K-Tribe belted three of their sixth home runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, the...

Gardner Off To Dominating Start
It was a long time coming for Cleveland Indians right-handed starting pitching prospect Joe Gardner.
After being chosen by the Indians in the 3rd round of the draft last year out of UC Santa Barbara, Gardner, 22, signed with the Indians quickly and was expected to make his professional debut with short-season Single-A Mahoning Valley when their season started up in mid-June. Unfortunately,...

The Sunday Drive With the K-Tribe: De La Cruz, Kipnis Shine
With most Cleveland fans focusing their attention on Joakim Noah's big mouth this afternoon against the Cavs, the K-Tribe will equally try to overcome some turbulence of their own from the past week. The Kinston Indians found their roller coaster both offensively and defensively in week three. Kinston's starting rotation came back down to earth this week, while the bats started to heat up. Kinston...

Minor Happenings: Bo Knows Baseball
"Minor Happenings" is a weekly column which covers the important developments and news in the Indians farm system. While most of the information in this report is from my own research and through interviews I have conducted with organizational personnel, some information in this report is collected and summarized from the various news outlets that cover each team.
I was in Lake County this...

After getting off to a torrid start by winning their first nine games in the Midwest League, the Captains have started to cool off. They lost their first series of the year as the Great Lakes Loons took two of three from them this week in Eastlake. The Captains now sport a 12-3 record, and lead the Loons by two games in the Northern Division of the Midwest League.
On Thursday night, outfielder...

Game Recap 4/22: Rough Day All Around For Indians Affiliates
Toledo Rallies Past Clippers
Yohan Pino looked like Johan Santana circa 2004 for 3 innings Thursday night, striking out 7 batters and allowing only two weak hits and throwing only 12 pitches out of the strike zone. The 4th inning unfortunately turned out to be a disaster for the Clippers righty. Pino walked two, hit a man and allowed 2 hits that turned into 4 runs for the Toledo Mud Hens...

Diamonds In Single A: Looking Back Part 1
For the first column of the year, I thought it might be fun to revisit the players that this article focused on last year. As the year goes on I also plan to do more in depth revisits of the players to see how they are progressing up the minors, so not only will this space be used to promote lesser known players but will also show the success and failures of these players since they left Single A.

Tonight Paul Cousineau and I are back on the cyberwaves with another edition of "Smoke Signals" from 9:30-10:30 PM EST. As always, we will recap the week that was for the big league Indians as well as what went down in the minor leagues. The Indians rode a hot streak of good starting pitching and Shin-Soo Choo's bat to win four in a row before going to Minnesota and dropping the first two games of...

Clip & Dirty: 4/21/10
The story of the game was the early exit of Carlos Santana with a leg injury, but per Tony's wonderful twitter update (which saved an evening of collective hand-wringing) we can be thankful that it appears to be only a minor injury and should put Carlos on the day-to-day routine. The home crowd certainly had trouble enjoying it to their fullest with Santana's departure, but the Clippers turned in...

Game Recap 4/21: Gomez Back To Old Form
Gomez Leads Clippers To Victory
In his third career Triple-A start, right-hander Jeanmar Gomez showed the potential that has him ranked as one of the Indians top pitching prospects and made them add him to the 40-man roster last offseason. His pitching combined with some timely hitting by the Clippers offense led them to a convincing 6-1 victory on Wednesday afternoon.
After struggling...

Three Up, Three Down: 4/14 - 4/20
Welcome to this week's installment of Three Up, Three Down. On the upside, we will look at a second baseman tearing the cover off the ball for Akron, a Captains OF with a major league name, and a flamethrowing lefty aquired at the trading deadline. On the downside, we have a couple of struggling Aeros and a veteran at AAA who is not making the most of an opportunity. Finally, we'll get an update...
