Second Thoughts Game #57: Indians 4, Yankees 7
The Indians' tough nearly month-long stretch of games continued on Monday as they traveled to New York behind their ace. Said ace turned in a rare poor start, an All-Star likely hobbled his way onto the disabled list, and the team's struggles against the Yankees and the American League East in general continued. All of that added up to a loss and Kevin Dean shares his "second thoughts" on the game...

Notes from the Wigwam: Bullpen woes take toll
It was a rough week for the Cleveland Indians as the team's left-handed bullpen options continued to let them down and played a key role in the team finishing 3-4. Of course, if there is a positive, it's the fact that the Detroit Tigers struggled as well during the past week and only lead the Indians by a half game in the American League Central. The Indians will attempt to get things back on track this week, but before they do that, take a moment to join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he recaps this past week in the IBI staple, Notes from the Wigwam.

Slammers slam Crushers 9-5
Joliet's bats proved to be too powerful as the Slammers jumped on Lake Erie (6-9) early and never looked back on their way to a 9-5 win Sunday and a series victory. Lake Erie starter Matt Rein (1-2) was in for a rude welcoming as he wasn't even able to make it to the third inning.

The Winston-Salem Dash completed a series sweep against the Carolina Mudcats with a 15-6 win at BB&T Ballpark Sunday afternoon. Home runs from first baseman Jerrud Sabourin and centerfielder Tyler Naquin weren’t enough to make up for the performance of the struggling Mudcats bullpen.

Whitenack's continued troubles sink Aeros 8-1
