Indians Baseball Insider:
Mason Radeke (Lake County, SP) – W (1-0), 5 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 7 K – In his first competitive mound appearance of the 2013 season, Radeke was flat-out dominant. Only four days after his reprieve from the purgatory of Extended Spring Training, Mason imposed his will on the Dayton Dragons lineup. If he can keep up this kind of pitching, he will be one to keep an eye on regarding a call-up to advanced Single-A Carolina very soon.
Joe Martinez (Columbus, SP) – 5.1 IP, 16 H, 10 R (all earned), 1 BB, 5 K, 2 HR allowed, 1 WP – This hasn’t exactly been a good year for Joe Martinez, but tonight took things to a new low. I don’t know if his problem is mechanical, mental, or both, but he needs to get himself sorted out quick as he is making the decision very easy for the Indians if they need to clear a roster spot in Triple-A.
Tyler Holt (Akron, CF) – 2-4, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB – Holt has begun to show some signs of life in his last few games (6-13 since May 29), but Friday's three-RBI perfo
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
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...
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...
COLUMBUS- The Columbus Clippers just can’t seem to catch a break these days.
After trailing 5-0 early in the game, the Clippers battled back to take a 8-5 lead but could not hold on to it as they collapsed against the Indianapolis Indians 10-9 in extra innings Saturday.
The Indians picked off right where they left off Friday, scoring four runs in the top of the first inning...
The Cleveland Indians have issued an apology to fans who attended Friday night's game with Tampa Bay that had nearly five hours of rain delays and ended at 2:53 a.m.
Indians president Mark Shapiro met with reporters before Saturday's game and said the team feels ''terrible'' about what took place Friday and will reach out to fans to show that.
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...
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...
May was about as good a month as is possible for a baseball team. While some of the offensive players tailed off a little from April, the pitching has been all around tremendous and the starting rotation in general is shooting up the rankings. The third rankings of the year see a new top player for the third time as well, with the Indians ace beating out the top hitters after a scorching...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Ubaldo Jimenez pitched eight scoreless innings and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 on Saturday.
Jason Giambi and Asdrubal Cabrera hit two-run homers in the game that began about 10 hours following the conclusion of Friday night's contest that ended at 2:53 a.m. on Saturday after nearly five hours of rain delays.
Jimenez (4-3) gave the Indians...

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...
