Second Thoughts: Game #91 - Indians 10, Rays 6
The Indians exploded offensively last night and scored ten runs with two outs and beat the Rays 10-6 in a much needed win for them. Justin Masterson struggled, but the bullpen and defense kept them close until the offense found a way to break...and then Carlos Santana's moon shot put the game away. Charlie Adams breaks down the game only how he can in today's "Second Thoughts".

Around the Farm: July 18, 2012
Tyler Cannon is a name that not many people have been paying attention to in the Indians system, but he's quietly becoming a factor in the system, both offensively and defensively. The Lake County offensive crew seems to be back on track and loaded for bear, led by some pesky infielder named Lindor. At the top of the charts on Wednesday night is one of my favorite players in the system...if only the Indians would feel the same way...

Clippers lose close one to Bats, 4-2
On a night when Huntington Park was celebrating Columbus’ bicentennial, the Clippers (49-49) were dealt a heartbreaking loss to the Louisville Bats (37-62) on Wednesday by a final score of 4-2. Donning light blue uniforms bearing the number “200,” the Clippers were frustrated throughout the night by dominant Bats pitching and a controversial call by the umpires in a critical situation.

Lavisky's progress has been slow, but he's still working hard
Low-A Lake County catcher Alex Lavisky has not performed up to expectations so far in his second full season as a professional, but he has the aptitude, the tools, and the drive to get better. There are few players in the system with more class and with as great a makeup as him, and he continues to work hard every day to get things right in the hope things eventually click and come together.

Rookie Notes: Howard struggles, but others impress
The AZL Indians finally reached .500 last night in a 7-4 victory over the Dodgers. The IPI's Sean Mahon was there again to take in the game and observed Dillon Howard's struggles on the mound, the rehab outings of Trey Haley and Danny Jimenez, and lots of other good pitching and some clutch hitting. He has tons of info with pitch velocities for all the pitchers and has firsthand observations from himself and scouts on how several rookie Indians looked.

Around the Farm: July 17, 2012
Jared Goedert continues to do everything offensively you could want from a minor leaguer, and plays multiple positions. Cody Allen continues to dominate at a high level...well...at every level. T.J. House continued his comeback story in grand fashion this season. The top spot of ATF goes to a kid who has completely forgot about the month of April, when several questioned whether or not he was even a legit prospect. Check out just WHO that is, after the jump...

Huge seventh inning propels Mudcats to win
The Carolina Mudcats (13-11) exploded late to even the series at one as they beat the Winston Salem Dash (13-11) 7-6 on Tuesday. The game looked as though it was going to be a pitchers duel as it was 1-1 after six innings, but both offenses put rallies together in the seventh inning.
