Notes from the Wigwam: Tribe wins two more series
The Cleveland Indians had a pretty solid week as the team went 4-2 and won their series against both the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins. Perhaps the biggest catalyst for the wins was second baseman Jason Kipnis, who just dominated and is now hitting .283 on the season. Other strong performances also came from Michael Bourn and left-hander Scott Kazmir. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he touches on these performances and more as he looks back at the week that was in the weekly IBI staple, Notes from the Wigwam.

Around the Farm: June 23, 2013

Big ninth inning comeback caps off AZL Indians 4-3 win
Up and down throughout the entire Cleveland Indians organization on Saturday night, teams exhibited a certain flair for the dramatics, as four teams each won their respective games by one run.

With revenge on their minds, the AZL Dodgers rode clutch hitting and strong relief pitching to a 4-1 victory over the AZL Indians Sunday night at Camelback Ranch. A relatively slow start hitting-wise for both teams, the Dodgers overcame a few defensive and pitching miscues in the early stages of the game, and managed to shut the Tribe down when it mattered most.
