Kazmir and Carrasco Shut Down Louisville
On a beautiful 70 degree night in Columbus, with the minds of the fans elsewhere in Boston, Scott Kazmir saw his first action in affiliated baseball since 2011. Carlos Carrasco lended him a four-inning hand of near-perfection, and the two "starters" led the Clippers to a 4-1 victory.

Aeros lose third straight, falling to Thunder 5-3
The Akron Aeros lost the series opener to the Trenton Thunder 5-3 at Arm & Hammer Park Monday night, giving the team their third straight loss. The Aeros are now 3-8 on the season and have lost five out of their last six games. Baseball took a backseat Monday after the tragic events in Boston, though. Donate blood. Donate money. Donate time. Keep the victims and heroes in your thoughts and prayers. Do whatever you want, but some things are more important than baseball.

Second Thoughts Game #11: White Sox 3, Indians 1
The Tribe bats were iced by a great pitching performance by White Sox right hander Jake Peavy on Sunday, as the Wahoo’s fell to Chicago 3-1.

Poor pitching and defense lead to Aeros' 9-5 loss
Akron pitchers continued their collective inability to prevent runs Sunday as the Akron Aeros lost 9-5 to the Bowie Baysox at Prince George's Stadium. The Baysox took three of the four games in the series while averaging seven runs per game. The Aeros have allowed 59 runs through 10 games, setting a pace that is nearly impossible for the offense to keep up with. The defending Eastern League champions have now lost seven of their first 10 games as they simply cannot keep opposing teams off the scoreboard.

Around the Farm: April 13, 2013
Trevor Bauer was somewhat underwhelming when he made his debut with the Indians last week, but on Saturday, the right-hander made his first start for the Columbus Clippers, and it was a dandy. Bauer was not the only player to impress Saturday night though as Quincy Latimore, the player the Indians acquired in Jeanmar Gomez trade, put together a perfect performance at the plate. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he recaps these performances and more as he takes you Around the Farm.
