Captains win in 11-innings, take series
The Lake County Captains battled both the chill and the Peoria Chiefs in an extra-inning 7-6 victory on Thursday night.

Sterling sailed through two innings walking just two, but ran into trouble in the third inning. With one out and one man on, third baseman Wes Darvill sent a shot over the right field fence for his first career home run, giving Peoria a 2-0 lead.

Don't give up on Jimenez yet
Another start. Another underwhelming performance. And thus another sad chapter in the story of Ubaldo Jimenez as a Cleveland Indian. Last night Jimenez faced the Kansas City Royals in his fourth start of the 2012 campaign and once again there was not much to like. But Steve Orbanek thinks it is still too soon to give up on Jimenez and that he may still come around.

Fishing For Mudcats: "We'll split up the week, okay?..."
The Mudcats returned home from a weak road trip and began slugging the ball. While their starters began to resemble the great pitching of 2010 and 2011, the bullpen more resembled a horror movie than a bullpen mafia. What could have been a break-out week, turned into a wash. Jim Pete returns with Fishing For Mudcats, the Carolina Mudcats notebook...

Placing the Replacements
They may not attract the type of media buzz that other higher-profile players garner, but the trio of Jason Donald, Jose Lopez and Aaron Cunningham are the exact type of role players that Cleveland fans admire as the blue collar members of the team. With a left-handed dominant starting lineup these players will be more important as the season moves along, and Adam talks about the trio in his latest.

Clippers pitching banged around in 12-8 loss
Tuesday night’s contest between the Columbus Clippers and Toledo Mud Hens might as well have been a home-run derby, and the Clippers didn’t have enough power to compete.

The two teams combined for seven homers—five of which were by Toledo, and three from Mud Hens’ first baseman Brad Eldred—in an offensive showcase that also produced 28 hits.
