How Sweep It Is: Indians break out the brooms, defeat Angels 3-1
Even the bright sun of Tinseltown couldn't out shine the blazing Tribe.

Join IBI's Indians beat reporter Jim Berdysz as he recaps the action.

The evolution of Chris Perez
To most fans, right-hander Chris Perez is a hothead with a loud mouth who needs to learn how to shut up. While that may be true, what is going unseen is the evolution of Perez. Despite all of the off-the-field drama, there is a lot more to “Pure Rage” Perez than a grip-and-rip approach. Fans may view him as an idiot, but the truth is that Perez has constantly tweaked and adjusted his pitching style in order to be effective. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks down the evolution of Chris Perez.

On-Deck with the Captains: 8/14/13 - 8/20/13
The Lake County Captains continued their recent success with a handful of W’s last week, complete with one of their own being deemed Cleveland Indians Minor League Player of the Week. As the playoffs loom closer, the team now must press to produce offensively, which has been its Achilles all year. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger takes a look back at the previous week for the Captains.

Second Thoughts Game #126: Indians 4, Angels 1
It was the most exciting, frustrating, boring and astonishing night of baseball that most Cleveland fans probably will ever see. After the Indians tied the game at one in the seventh, the score would hold until the 14th inning as both teams failed to capitalize on opportunities. Drew Stubbs proved to be the hero as he broke through with a two-run homer in the 14th. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps a late-night 4-1 Tribe win.

Crushers fall to CornBelters 4-1
Jeff Isom has a lot of theories. One of them pertains to his starting pitchers, and it rang true on Tuesday night. Isom likes to say that out of ten starts, a pitcher will have his best stuff in two of them. In two others, they'll lack their usual good command. In the other six, they will be somewhere in between.

Around The Farm:  August 20, 2013
Tuesday night featured two good performances by players of distinctly opposite value to the Indians organization. At High-A Carolina infielder Paddy Matera continues to impress and has done a nice job filling in after signing as a free agent a few months ago, and at rookie level Arizona first round pick and young phenom Clint Frazier had another big night. The IBI's Arthur Kinney takes us Around the Farm to recap the night.

Indians come out with memorable 4-1 win over Angels in extras
It may have taken five hours and 17 minutes to complete, but in the eyes of Carlos Carrasco, it seemed more like 783 days. Having not won a game since June 29, 2011, Carrasco and the Indians came out on top in a 14 inning battle at Angel Stadium early Wednesday morning. When the dust settled and the clock struck 3:30 a.m. on the East Coast, the Tribe took down L.A. for the second straight night, 4-1.

Scrappers drop fifth straight, fall 4-2
Niles, OH – Averaging just over two runs per-game since the All-Star break, it’s fair to say the Mahoning Valley Scrappers offense has struggled as of late. Those struggles continued Tuesday night, and the Scrappers lost 4-2 to the Jamestown Jammers for their fifth straight loss.

Launching off with the Aeros: 8/13/13 – 8/19/13
The Akron Aeros were above .500 in a week for the first time since mid-July, winning four of their seven games as they moved their record to 60-67. The winning still leaves Akron seven games out of first place and the wild card, though with a young team, the growth shown by the Aeros throughout the season is a win on its own. To read about Tyler Naquin's first week, Jesus Aguilar setting records, and everything else you need to know, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Second Thoughts Game #125: Indians 5, Angels 2
As streaky as this Indians offense has been this season, they’ve proven that it doesn’t take much to break out of a slump. While Monday night alone was no definite indication that the offense was on the cusp of another hot streak, they still put up a crooked number against one of the top pitchers in the league. A four-run fourth backed up by solid pitching by Zach McAllister gave the Indians a series opening win over the Angels.
