Giovanni Soto rolls out no-hitter in 2-1 win over Altoona
Giovanni Soto, the starting pitcher acquired in the Jhonny Peralta trade in 2010, pitched the first-ever solo no-hitter in Canal Park history.

Kyle Landis rebounds after 2010 injury
In 2009, Kyle Landis was an up-and-comer in the Indians' organization. In 2010, a mystery ailment left Landis with a numb throwing arm, and nobody knew the answers. Landis missed the season, but after several months of treatment, Landis returned in 2011 and put himself back on the Indians' prospect map. IPI's Nathan Kemp talked about his 2010 injury, and his resurgence through the organization in 2011 and 2012, after the jump...

Akron Aeros Giovanni Soto throws no-hitter
The Indians traded Jhonny Peralta to the Detroit Tigers for a soft-tossing, 19-year-old Giovanni Soto in 2010. Soto has gone under the radar since the deal, but things are likely to change after he pitched the first no-hitter in Akron since Jeanmar Gomez threw a perfect game in 2009.

Akron holds on for 4-3 victory over Altoona
Akron jumped to a 4-2 lead, and the game seemed to be in control until Loek Van Mil left the game with injury. Rob Bryson replaced him, and the adventure ensued. Bryson would give up a run, but would mow down the Curve by striking out the next three to get ouf of the jam, and give the Aeros the victory.

How I Met Your Aeros: Tyler Holt
Recent callup Tyler Holt may not overwhelm you with power numbers and moonshots, but he is one of the harder workers in the organization. Holt gets on base, plays good defense, and generally is a dirtbag-type player (like one Jason Kipnis) that fans love to get behind. Holt may or may not reach that level, but one thing is for certain: he won't stop trying and caring. Jim Piascik talked with Holt before his home debut in Akron to talk about his approach, controlling his emotions, and adjusting to a new locker room.
