Around the Farm: June 2, 2012
Matt LaPorta is finally officially heading to Cleveland. After several weeks of speculation on when he would get his call, Tony broke the news on Twitter last night that LaPorta had been called up and was on his way to Cleveland. LaPorta dominated Around the Farm the first two months of the season, so we say good-bye to him (for now) and also note all the other highlights for other players in the system on Saturday night.

Captains finally beat Whitecaps at home, 8-7
It took one of the wackiest games of the season for Lake County (26-28) to finally end its five-game losing skid, defeating West Michigan (25-30) 8-7 to avoid the sweep. As the old adage goes, you never know what you are going to get in baseball. That was the case in the eighth inning of Friday night’s contest at Classic Park.
