Second Thoughts: Game #60 - Indians 1, Reds 7
The Indians started off the Battle of Ohio with a thud last night as they lost to the Reds in game one of their series 7-1. Really, it was "just baseball" as Cueto pitched brilliantly and the Indians hung in until the 7th inning when the Reds pulled away with a big homer from one of the hottest hitters in the National League. Charlie Adams provides his second thoughts...

Catastrophic inning dooms Clippers in 13-6 loss
It was a promising start for the Clippers in Huntington Park, but one catastrophic inning would ultimately be too much to overcome. Columbus (30-35) fell to the Charlotte Knights (39-28) by a final score of 13-6 on Tuesday, and much of the Knights’ offense came courtesy of a fourth inning explosion in which they scored seven runs.

Smaller successes, yielding larger results
The Indians are having a lot of success this season even without a big payroll or big numbers from their lineup. Adam McGavin says the Indians have the look of a National League team where they do a lot of the little things well by getting on base, running the bases well, playing good defense, getting good quality starts, and having a very good bullpen.

Around the Farm: June 11, 2012
Jack Hannahan returned on Monday night for a short rehab assignment before returning to the Tribe later this week. Andy LaRoche showed some of his former major league stock, with his second homer in his past five games. Grant Sides continues to look like an elite arm, albeit in Low A Lake County. The top of ATF tonight belongs to a guy that does it all for any pitching staff he's ever on, and tonight, was perfect doing it.
