Second Thoughts: Game #70-Astros 8, Indians 1
After the Indians shutout Houston 2-0 on Friday night, the Astros returned the favor on Saturday afternoon as rookie left-handed starter Dallas Keuchel threw a complete game victory in just his second Major League start, defeating Cleveland 8-1. Tribe starter Jeanmar Gomez would take a perfect game into the fifth inning only to unravel and give up four runs in the frame, on his way to his third consecutive losing effort and seventh loss of the season.

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...

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.

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.
