Baker Impresses but Tribe Defense Stumbles in Loss
Dylan Baker proved why he was one of the most highly regarded JUCO prospect in the 2012 draft on Wednesday night. The Alaska native threw 3.1 innings on the evening, struck out six—including striking out the side in the 2nd inning—and was absolutely owning the Cubs offense with a fastball

How I Met Your Aeros: Preston Guilmet
In the 9th inning of a tight game at Canal Park, you very well might get to see Preston Guilmet and his unorthodox pitching style. Guilmet uses his unique straight over the top style to confuse hitters and it has worked very well this year. Jim Piascik talked with Guilmet recently about his pitching style, his approach, and whether he feels the pressure of being the closer.

Romero, and more.

Second Thoughts: Game #104 - Indians 2, Royals 5
Well, that just might do it. The Indians lost for the fifth time in a row last night on their current road trip 5-2 to the Royals, losses to teams they should be beating if they want to stay in the playoff race. They are now seven games out of first place and the season is quickly transitioning from contention to evaluation for next season. Adam McGavin gives his second thoughts on another tough loss last night...

Scrappers fend of Lake Monsters, 6-1
The Scrappers got back on the winning end after losing two straight, outpacing the Vermont Lake Monsters 6-1 on Wednesday night. The Vermont pitchers were certainly a welcome sight for Scrapper hitters after facing the stingy Brooklyn staff.

Rayl dominates Pelicans
The Carolina Mudcats shutout the Myrtle Beach Pelicans behind an oustanding pitching performance from starter Mike Rayl 5-0 on Wednesday night. After a 29 minute rain delay, Rayl came out and was dominant, as he did not give up a hit until there was one out in the fifth. He wound up going seven scoreless innings, surrendering four hits and striking out two.

Lake County beats West Michigan in a 7-2 romp
The Lake County Captains strung together sixteen hits on Wednesday to post a 7-2 win over the West Michigan Whitecaps and extend a five-game winning streak. Left-hander Elvis Araujo took the mound for the Captains against West Michigan righty Marcelo Carreno. Araujo had a tough month of July as he posted a 2-3 record and 6.95 ERA, and he struggled on Wednesday as he had trouble finding the plate.

Around the Farm: August 1, 2012
Jose Ramirez had a perfect night at the plate, and Francisco Lindor had another three-hit ball game. Mike Rayl showcased a solid outing, and Jacob Lee looked solid in another outing. Tonight's top of the heat belongs to another starter that seems to find his way here on occasion, even though he's not even close to the top talent with regards to starters. Tonight, there was no one better. Find out who, after the jump...

Fishing with the Mudcats: Suspension of Disbelief
The Mudcats couldn't hit this week, and they really couldn't pitch much. Put that all together, and your week isn't going to go very well. The Mudcats quest for the second half took a bit of a snag after a struggling week that saw a long losing streak, which coincided with a suspension by two of the Mudcats best players. Check out the week as we go Fishing with the Mudcats...

Starting pitching rundown
A lot of the focus on improving the Indians current roster has focused on offensive upgrades, specifically regarding left field and the corner infield positions. However, the Tribe’s starting rotation is as much or more of a concern, and that concern has more than shown itself during the Indians current road trip through Minnesota and Kansas City. Adam McGavin runs through the starting pitching performances to date and looks at what options - if any - the Indians have to fill the holes internally.

Second Thoughts: Game #103 - Indians 3, Royals 8
What an awful day for the Indians on Tuesday. First they stand pat and do very little to improve the team at the trade deadline, and then their team put up another poor showing on the field with Derek Lowe maybe putting the final nail in his coffin for his career and the offense continued to sputter. It all added up to an 8-3 loss to the Royals. New IPI writer William Biggar gives his second thoughts on the game...

Tribe pitching stumbles in loss to Reds
Things started off on the right foot for the AZL Indians as they battled their next door neighbor in Goodyear and scored three early runs against the Reds. First baseman Nelson Rodriguez did the bulk of the damage as he crushed a 3-run homer over 410 ft. to centerfield after D’vone McClure and Jorge Martinez reached base on a HBP and single, respectively.

Around the Farm: July 31, 2012
Bryson Myles followed up Monday Night's three-hit ballgame with another. Matt LaPorta hit his first home run since July third. Roberto Hernandez didn't pitch all that well, but Giovanni Soto and Danny Salazar did. At the top of the heap was a former major leaguer, who just can't seem to find his way back to the bigs. Find out who, after the jump...

Mudcats Squeeze Out 2-1 Win
The Carolina Mudcats (19-18) squeezed out a 2-1 win against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (22-15) to open up a three game series. The Mudcats got two, two out hits in the bottom of the first to drive in their only runs of the game. That would be all the offense the Mudcats would need as the pitching was fantastic on the night.

Hernandez rusty, Clippers lose 10-8
After eight innings of lackluster offense and inconsistent pitching, the Columbus Clippers (59-53) put together a monster ninth-inning rally to tie the game but ultimately fell to the Rochester Red Wings (55-56) in 12 innings by a final score of 10-8.
