LaPorta helps power Clippers to late victory over Lehigh
For much of the game, it looked like it would be another story of offensive struggles at Huntington Park. Luckily, the defense kept it close enough just in case the bats decided to heat up. And heat up they did. The Columbus Clippers (36-40) came from behind to beat the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (43-31) on Saturday by a final score of 3-2.

Around the Farm: June 23, 2012--Did Chen hit a homer?
LaPorta must have really missed his time with one of the top spots here at ATF, because as sure as I'm an Indians fan, here's LaPorta again. Ronnie Rodriguez is really starting to turn a corner, and once he does, he may see Akron. Tonight's top spot at ATF goes to a guy that has seemingly lost his home-run power, or has he. Join Jim Pete as he uses Saturday Night's ATF to search for the elusive Chun Chen HR...

Right on or way off: Is Masterson the Ace?
Has Justin Masterson finally emerged as the Cleveland Indians ace, or are his recent starts just a facade? Is it time to remove Carlos Santana from the clean-up spot, or is their still time for the Indians' slugger to heat up this summer? Is it time to make a change to the bottom of the rotation, or will Jeanmar Gomez figure things out? Join Adam, and find out if these statements are right on, or way off...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Summer Solstice edition
The Indians need some offensive help on the right side of the plate. There is no doubt about that. But, with so many teams looking for power-hitting, right-handed bats, might the Indians be best served to look elsewhere to fill another of their holes going forward? Jim Pete takes a closer look at the topsy-turvy, ebb and flow rotation and bullpen in this weeks CoCaO...

Around the Farm: June 22, 2012
The man they call "Big Red" is back to performing at a level that was once expected of him. Nick Weglarz is healthy and his play has skyrocketed as a result, and with his tear over the last month (the best in the league) he may be back on the big league radar. Tony takes a look at Weglarz along with Luigi Rodriguez's big night to start his second half, Steven Wright's consistency, and lots more...

Poker and baseball players both share World Series goal
To some people, both the games of baseball and poker are considered to be boring. They both have long periods where there does not appear to be anything happening and then suddenly the games explode into exciting action. However, both games also share a yearly tradition that is the goal of every player in both games, and that is the World Series.

Second Thoughts: Game #69 - Indians 2, Astros 0
The Indians got their 10-game road trip started off on the right foot on Friday night with a 2-0 win over the Astros. Ubaldo Jimenez continued his June brilliance and the offense did just enough to aide in the win. Jim Berdysz chimes in with his "second thoughts" on the win and the Indians fourth straight win...

Scrappers shut out by Spikes, 4-0
Mahoning Valley's offense struggled again on the road against the second opponent they've faced this year. The result was a 4-0 loss on Friday night to the State College Spikes, the short season Single-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Scrappers' lost their second straight game due to a lack of offense, and for the fourth consecutive game the Scrappers' failed to score more than two runs against their opponent.

Captains fall in second half opener, 4-3
The Lake County Captains (0-1, 31-39) attempted a late comeback in the first game of the second half but were unsuccessful as the Fort Wayne Tincaps (1-0, 32-39) held on for the win, 4-3. The Captains sent right-hander Felix Sterling (3-6, 5.63) to the mound to begin the second half. He allowed two runs in the first inning.

Knights pull away from Clippers late, win 9-4
As their recent nine-game road trip went along, it seemed as if the Columbus bats were coming alive. In the last three games against the Charlotte Knights, the Clippers went .483 with runners in scoring position. None of that improvement was apparent on Friday night, as Columbus (35-40) fell to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (43-30) by a final score of 9-4.

Indians lose in extras, 3-2
The Arizona League Indians fell to the Arizona League Angels in extras last night with a final of 3-2. The Indians battled the Angels in their second game of the season, but despite seemingly frequent opportunities in the late going, the young guns could not capitalize on their opportunities. Sean has the recap of the game as well as lots of comments from scouts...
