Lonnie Chisenhall-3B, Columbus: 4-for-5, 2 R, 1 RBI, K:
No, "Chiz" didn't win the game, hit three homers or drive in five runs. What he did do was go 4-5, perhaps ending a season long slump....

On Drew Pomeranz, Joe Gardner and IPI guest columnists
Pomeranz leaves game with hamstring tightness
Drew Pomeranz left last night's Kinston Indians game with tightness in his right hamstring. According the Pomeranz and manager Aaron Holbert, the injury isn't serious, and the big lefty will not miss his next start.
Pomeranz landed funny during his first batter of the game, which prompted K-Tribe trainer Jeremy Heller to come out and check...

The K-Tribe Chronicle: Tyler "Havoc," welcome to the K-Tribe
(Photo: Kinston Indians)The 2011 Kinston Indians are an enigmatic team, that's for sure. This week, they won three straight games, with 10+ hits in each game. With that said, they don't have a single player that's hitting the ball all that well. They have two players batting over .300, with only one registering enough bats to show up on the Batting Leaders for the team. They have one player with more...

Tony LastoriaTony's partial nephrectomy (partial kidney removal) surgery was scheduled for this morning, a little after 7:00. Tony's wife e-mailed me a few minutes ago to let me know that the surgery went very well, and that he's in recovery as we speak. The surgeons were not only able to remove the tumor, but were able to save a part of the kidney. Tony did very well through the surgery and lost very...

Defense is Bartolone
(Photo: Tony Lastoria)Indians infielder Nick Bartolone may be small in stature, but he’s big on defense.
Bartolone, 20, is small and scrawny at 5’10 and 153 pounds, which because of his small size and look has earned him the nickname of “Rango” from his teammates. No, it is not a nickname given because of his outstanding range at shortstop (though would be just as fitting), but because...
