Cleveland Sports 360:
The Cleveland Indians have now lost twice as many games than they have won. Brett Myers, got the start in Houston last night and he didn’t pitch that bad. In true Tribe fashion he was the victim of the long ball. Myers, gave up the long ball, twice in the second inning. The first was a home run hit by Houston’s J.D. Martinez, it was a 2 runs blast that drove in Carlos Pena giving the Astros a 2-0 lead over the Cleveland Indians. Then Myers gave up a home run to Houston’s Rick Ankiel to make it 3-0 Astros. The Indians offense did what it has done most of the season, they went missing. The only runs the Indians scored came off a Lonnie Chisenhall home run in the 4th inning that drove in Indians first baseman Mark Reynolds. That was it, the Indians couldn’t score anymore runs in the game and they lost their 10th game of the season taking the team to a season high of 5 losses in a row. The Indians started a 10 game road trip last night in Houston and things have to improve with the Indi...

Danny Salazar (SP, Akron Aeros): 5 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 9 K.
Ah, now that’s more like it. Before Saturday, there was a mix of good and bad from Salazar in his previous three starts with the Aeros. He started the season out with a nice showing where he allowed one run over five innings, but the right-hander then allowed a total of eight earned runs in 7 2/3 innings since. However, Salazar...
The Columbus Clippers snapped a four-game losing streak by blanking the Toledo Mud Hens 1-0 Saturday.
Behind the spectacular performance by right-hander Carlos Carrasco, the Clippers were able to squeeze out the victory despite the recent struggles by the offense.

Finally! After a dismal stretch of baseball that left the Tribe in search of any offense, the bats rang loud in the heart of Texas as Cleveland toppled Houston, 19-6 ending their five game losing streak.
Astros starter Philip Humber would record just one out in the first inning before yielding...
Twenty-five years ago, when they were briefly teammates on a typically mediocre 1980s Cleveland Indians squad, John Farrell seemed to bring out the best in Terry Francona. I’m not just basing that on some random, hazy childhood memories, either. I actually went to the trouble of looking it up—which should say something about how entertaining last night’s ballgame was. ...
From the Bait Shop:
It’s never good to go from first place-to-last place in a week, even if it’s only the second full week of the Carolina League season. The only good news for the Mudcats is that it is only the second week of the season, and the Muddies are only three games out of first place.
Things will definitely need to improve quickly after they went 1-6 this week.
One fan sitting in right field of Sunday’s Indians-Astros game showed why you don’t try to catch a home-run ball with a popcorn bucket. If not for the fan dumping popcorn into his mouth, Rick Ankiel would have robbed Stubbs of a home-run.

Cleveland Indians “farmhand” (really?) Daisuke Matsuzaka seems to be emulating the Indians fan favorite Rick Vaughn (a.k.a. Charlie Sheen) in everyone’s favorite late 1980′s baseball movie “Major League”. After getting “red tagged” out of Spring Training, Matsuzaka figured...
