Second Thoughts Game #31: A's 3, Indians 4
The Indians got a big break with a reviewed non-home run call not being overturned, and it helped the Indians and closer Chris Perez escape with a 4-3 win, their ninth win in their last ten games. The IBI's Michael Hattery steps in and provides his "second thoughts" on Perez's save, the value of Justin Masterson, the depth of the lineup, and more.

Around The Farm: May 8, 2013
Balls flying out of Huntington Park in Columbus with one of the main culprits being a real blast from the past. An Akron starting pitcher turning around a season's worth of poor performances with a strong day in Canal Park. Few hits and fewer runs from the Lake County offense, letting down their pitchers. To figure out who these cryptic hints are referring to and find out all you need to know about the action in the minor leagues Wednesday night, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

Indians squeeze by Oakland 4-3, notch their third straight win
Just when you thought you’ve see it all in Major League Baseball, you really haven’t. Coming into the ballgame winners of seven of their last eight, the Indians stayed red hot on Wednesday, as they won their third straight over the Oakland Athletics 4-3. Another team victory was thanks in large part to more great starting pitching and a little luck. Cleveland benefited from a controversial call in the ninth inning as Chris Perez looked for (and succeeded at getting) the save. Join Jim Berdysz as he recaps all the action, after the jump...

Knights trounce Clippers 8-3
Aside from three solo home runs, the Clipper bats struggled against Charlotte pitching as they fell 8-3 to the Knights on Wednesday. Clippers left-hander T.J. House (0-2, 7.88 ERA) lost his second-straight decision after allowing five earned runs on eight hits in six innings of work. Right-hander Zach Stewart (1-4, 4.22 ERA) had a fantastic outing for the Knights. In the six innings he pitched, the righty allowed just one earned run on five hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.

Silver Hawks blank Captains 3-0
The Captains fell to the Silver Hawks 3-0 Wednesday night after several failed attempts to bring in runs. After two pitching changes and only five hits, the Captains just could not bring men around to home. All the way through the seventh inning, the Captains never hit anything more than a single. Singles came from first baseman Erik Gonzalez, right fielder Logan Vick, catcher Jeremy Lucas, designated hitter Eric Haase and another from Gonzalez. Those singles were the only hits for the Captains on the night and the only positives for the Captains as well.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/1/13 - 5/7/13
It was an interesting week for the Lake County Captains as they were on the road in Peoria and Burlington last week. Peoria’s results were rare, as one game ended in a tie after it was suspended due to weather on Thursday and continued on Friday, and another game was cancelled. The team picked up two wins in Burlington as the offense produced seven runs on Sunday and the pitching was untouchable on Monday. All of that and more is recapped in this week's notebook...

Hermida settling in with new team and working on consistency
After being selected as a No. 1 draft pick in the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft by the Florida Marlins, outfielder Jeremy Hermida was one of the most highly-touted prospects in the sport. Unfortunately, things just never really panned out the way many expected them to. After bouncing around the league the last few years he found his way into the Indians organization this year and is off to a good start at Triple-A Columbus. The IBI's Ethan Day recently sat down with him to get an update on things are going...

Aeros avoid sweep as Packer shuts down SeaWolves
Coming into Wednesday, Akron Aeros left-hander Matt Packer owned a 0-4 record, a 4.60 ERA, more hits (42) than innings pitched (29.1), and almost as many walks (14) as strikeouts (16). Packer began to turn things around Wednesday morning at Education Day at Canal Park, however, throwing seven innings with no earned runs (two unearned) as the Aeros defeated the Erie SeaWolves 4-2. The win allowed Akron to avoid a sweep before heading out on a seven-game road trip.

Salazar's encouraging start has him on way to Columbus
Akron Aeros' right-handed pitcher Danny Salazar is presently 2-3 with a 2.67 ERA and a 51:10 K:BB. In three appearances from April 20-May 2, Salazar didn’t allow an earned run. On Tuesday, his final start with the Aeros, he tossed five innings against the Erie SeaWolves and yielded just one run. He is still working on his secondary stuff, but is expected to be promoted to Columbus in the next few days. Stephanie Metzger has the story...

Second Thoughts Game #30: A's 0, Indians 1
The Indians won a nail-biter on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over the Athletics at Progressive Field. Behind the strong pitching of Zach McAllister, whom they got from the Yankees for Austin Kearns in July of 2010, and some key plays by Yan Gomes the Indians were able to come away with their eighth win in their last nine games. Did I mention the Indians got McAllister for Kearns? The IBI's Jake Dungan gives his second thoughts on the game...

Crushers camp rolls along, but decisions are still far off
No one said baseball was easy, and for the 36 guys fighting for 24 spots on the Crushers' final roster, one opportunity can't be wasted manager. Players are being put through the gauntlet with 15 straight days of practices and games leading up to the first game of the season on May 17. As the 36 man roster is whittled down to 24 players by the start of the season, Crushers' manager Jeff Isom talks about how tough it is to make changes this early in camp.
