Found June 01, 2013 on Indians Baseball Insider:
COLUMBUS- In retrospective, the Clippers might have wished that the downpour prior to Friday’s action would have canceled the game all together.  After the hour and 15 minute rain delay, Columbus was beat up in an 11-0 routing by the Indianapolis Indians. The Pittsburgh Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate demonstrated why they are the best team in the International League, dominating the Clippers on both sides of the ball. The Indians offense obliterated Columbus pitching, scoring all their runs on an outstanding 19 hits and starter Gerrit Cole was nothing short of spectacular. Cole (4-3, 3.25 ERA) baffled Columbus hitters all night, shutting out the Clippers on two hits with five strikeouts and a walk in his seven innings of work. “He just threw the ball well,” manager Chris Tremie said. “You know, threw in a little bit, threw away, mixed his pitches up. He threw a lot of quality fastballs with good velocity and kept the ball down.” The loss marked the Clippers’ second four-game skid in la...

Moncrief looking to hone standout tools, fulfill major league dream

Like most 20-somethings, Akron Aeros outfielder Carlos Moncrief enjoys playing video games, especially MLB The Show. He does not create himself in the game, though; instead he thinks about what could be. "Every time I look at the Indians' lineup," Moncrief said. "I just hope that I'm in there one year, and I'll play with the Indians all the time when...

Fishing for Mudcats: Tyler Naquin takes over...

From the Bait Shop: The Carolina Mudcats are clearly an enigma. No, I wouldn’t say that I can’t figure out why Carolina doesn’t win ballgames. It’s fairly simple: when you score less runs than the team you’re playing, you just don’t win. The big question is why. This team can hit. The Muddies are currently leading the league with a .269 average, which is 13 points above...

Aguilar, Moncrief's late-inning heroics give Aeros 15-inning win

AKRON, OH -- Down 2-1 in the ninth inning, first baseman Jesus Aguilar tied the game with an opposite field home run, just out of right fielder Steven Souza Jr.'s reach at the "It's A Whole New Ballgame" sign. After the two teams went six more innings, it almost literally was. The Akron Aeros (24-30) won 3-2 Thursday night in 15 innings, defeating the Harrisburg...

WFNY Stats & Info: Indians’ two-out barrage best in MLB since 2011

Sitting at the Indians-Reds game last night with TD, I had planned to just spend a quiet inning away from my friends. Then, suddenly, Michael Brantley had a two-out RBI hit. And then Yan Gomes. And Ryan Raburn. And the beat continued to the top of the lineup. All in all, I was away from my friends for nearly 45 minutes as the Indians demoralized Homer Bailey and the Reds for seven...

May 2013 Player Power Rankings

Indians fall hard to Tampa Bay 9-2, end play Saturday morning

One could say Friday’s game between the Indians and Tampa Bay Rays lasted two months. While the box score may say the ballgame took two hours and 59 minutes to complete, it doesn’t account for four hours and 49 minutes of rain delays. Or the fact that play began in May and ended in June. When it was all said and done, the Tribe fell just as hard as the rain did losing to the...
