Second Thoughts Game #49: Baltimore 8, Cleveland 4
Faced with a tired bullpen, the Cleveland Indians called up lefty T.J. House for his first major league start. While House put in a crucial six-inning performance, offense was the order of the day, with the Orioles posting 14 hits in an 8-4 defeat of the Indians. The IBI's John Grimm reflects on the performance, both as it relates to the rookie starter's use and to left-fielder Michael Brantley.

Clippers fall to Bulls 3-1 in pitching duel
The way it’s going for the Columbus Clippers (22-24) right now – if it’s not one thing it’s another. Lately, on night’s they can’t pitch, they hit. On Friday night, they could muster only a single run on a ground out in the first inning by Jason Kipnis. The Durham Bulls (28-21) took the second game of this series, and their fourth in a row over the Clippers by a score of 3-1 in front of 9,506 in attendance at Huntington Park.

Around the Farm: May 22, 2014
The Columbus Clippers were on national television Thursday night, but the best story on the farm came from Ryan Merritt. The left-hander continued to impress in 2014 as he dominated in a unique way given the trends of today's game. In addition to Merritt, Lake County starter Dace Kime furthered his case that his early struggles are behind him, the Columbus bullpen essentially had open tryouts for the majors, Anthony Santander got two-thirds of Lake County's hits (not in a good way), and much more. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down and takes you Around the Farm.

Clippers fall short, lose to Bulls 7-5
Comebacks can make for exciting games, but they also make life difficult for the teams trying to complete them. The Columbus Clippers (22-23) came from behind not once, but twice on Thursday night, but they fell one comeback short in a 7-5 loss to the Durham Bulls (27-21) at Huntington Park.

Captains Notebook: Hendrix, Aviles continue to lead the team

Here's what happened during the Captains' previous week.

Second Thoughts Game #47: Tigers 10, Indians 11
A walk-off balk is one of the rarest occasions in baseball. From some cursory research, it appears this has only happened about 15 times in HISTORY. While the way the game was won on Wednesday is certainly the most unbelievable event that occurred, the game featured three separate comebacks by the Indians and is without a doubt the biggest (and most improbable) win of the year. The IBI's Michael Goodman provides his "second thoughts" on the amazing win...

Around the Farm: May 21, 2014
Things were not as crazy down on the farm Wednesday as they were at Progressive Field, but there were still plenty of interesting things goings on. Headlining the night was outfielder -- which is still a little weird to write -- Dorssys Paulino, who has returned to Lake County swinging well. He was joined by Tyler Naquin continuing his hot streak, Clayton Cook's first game in 25 months, and much more. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down and takes you Around the Farm.
