"Controlling the game" and the Cleveland pitching staff
James Keene was listening to the Tribe game on Saturday while driving home when Zach McAllister pitched into a jam in the third inning. McAllister ‘got out of the jam’ when Jesus Montero, the runner on first, was picked off by Yan Gomes and then Endy Chavez and Dustin Ackley flew out, after which Hamilton praised Zach McAllister on “doing a great job of getting out of the jam.” James feels that some of that credit is misplaced and breaks down how Cleveland's pitching has truly done in 2013 after the jump...

Tribe Happenings: Third time the charm with this hot start?
The Indians just passed the quarter pole in their season, which is typically the time when everyone will reassess the team. Sitting at 24-17 and winners of 16 of their last 20 games, the Indians are playing well and hitting on all cylinders. They are right on pace with the starts they had in 2011 and 2012 before they fizzled in each of those seasons, so will this season be any different? Tony touches on that as he takes a quick look at things at the quarter pole, and he also touches on the key components to their turnaround, the decision to send down Lonnie Chisenhall, what Trevor Bauer need to do to stay permanently in Cleveland, and more.

Clippers walk off in ninth, defeat RailRiders 4-3
It was a perfect ending to a perfect 77 degree night at Huntington Park Saturday. With the game tied at three in the bottom of the ninth inning, Columbus Clippers catcher Chris Wallace delivered a clutch two-out single to right field for a 4-3 walk off victory over the Scranton/WB RailRiders. Right fielder Matt Carson walked to begin the inning and then quickly swiped second to put himself into scoring position. Left fielder Cedric Hunter then laid a sacrifice bunt down the first base line to advance Carson to third. But with one swing of the bat, Wallace became a hero and did so in front of the Clippers’ first sellout crowd of the season.

Aeros bullpen comes up short in tough 4-2 loss
A solid first half for the Akron Aeros was not enough to hold off the Erie SeaWolves, who prevailed 4-2 on Saturday night at Canal Park. Akron’s tough defense and strong hitting carried over from Friday night but was overshadowed by weak relief pitching late in the game. The SeaWolves, who are second in the Eastern League in hitting, started out slow but smacked 10 crucial hits beginning in the fourth inning. After a 2-0 deficit early on, the SeaWolves rallied to take a 3-2 lead in the eighth inning and added one more in the ninth for the win.
