On-Deck with the Captains: 7/31/13 - 8/6/13
The Captains returned home this past week, where they posted a 3-4 record. The offense seemed to generate some more hits, though these hits didn't necessarily come at the right times. Timely hitting has been an issue for the team all season, but a couple of home runs boosted the offense through a few games. Stephanie Metzger recaps the week that was for the Captains.

Crushing the Numbers: 7/30/13 to 8/5/2013
It may have been a short week, but it was a successful one for the Crushers. Because of a rain out of their game against the WildThings on Friday night, the Crushers only played five games in seven days. They were a perfect 5-0. The Crushers have been carried by their sound pitching and defense so far in the second half, and that’s the way this team was built to succeed. The IBI's Kyle Ferrara shares the details of the week that was in his latest notebook...

Second Thoughts Game #113: Tigers 5, Indians 1
Well, if there was any doubt as to whether the Tigers and Indians were equals, it was answered in these last two games, or the whole season series between the two teams for that matter. The Indians are a good team with plenty of potential to grow, but Detroit was picked to win the World Series for a reason. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps a bad inning by Masterson and a quiet night for the bats in another loss to Motown.

Around the Farm: August 6, 2013
The Cleveland Indians system didn't have a lot of showcase performances on Tuesday night, but it was headlined by some streaking players. Bryson Myles is starting to find his groove now that his injury-prone legs are now healthy and provided a game-winner for Carolina, and Jesus Aguilar hit his fourteenth homer, to answer critics hitting him for his lack of power. Join Jim Pete with Tuesday's ATF.

Indians bats go cold against Verlander, fall to Detroit 5-1
Fans don’t normally blurt out the name Don Kelly when thinking about the Detroit Tigers. Yet, for some reason, his name doesn’t resonate well with Tribe fans. Just like it was Monday, the Tigers did all of their damage in one inning. A five run fifth for the Tigers capped off by a three-run homer by Kelly was more than enough, as Detroit beat up Cleveland, 5-1.

Rodriguez is slugging his way to success
“A star is born” is a clichè used in every sport. Often, it refers to a phenom, born with extraordinary talent in a given field, who has finally made the big time. Very rarely do you hear the words, “a star is built”. That is, unless you find yourself in the Mahoning Valley Scrappers clubhouse and bear witness to the emerging talent that is Nellie Rodriguez.

Second Thoughts Game #112: Tigers 4, Indians 2
After taking the final two of a short three-game road trip in Miami, the Indians returned home to start the most important series of their season against the division-leading Tigers. The home team controlled the first eight innings of the game in just about every facet, but one pitch in the ninth changed everything. The IBI's Kevin Dean provides his second thoughts on the punch in the gut loss from Monday night.
