Found May 15, 2013 on Fox Sports Ohio:
PHILADELPHIA (AP) --Jason Kipnis hit a three-run homer, Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles also went deep to back Corey Kluber, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-4 Wednesday. Corey Kluber (3-2) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings. He rebounded nicely after allowing eight runs in 4 2-3 innings against Detroit in his previous start. A day after rookie Jonathan Pettibone held the Indians in check, Cole Hamels got roughed up by one of the league's highest-scoring offenses. Cleveland had been in a slight funk, scoring just seven runs in its previous four games. Hamels (1-6) allowed five runs and six hits in five innings. The three-time All-Star and 2008 World Series MVP has a 4.61 ERA, and the Phillies are 1-8 in his starts. Hamels had six straight quality starts before this one, with a 2.41 ERA in that span. Jimmy Rollins drove in three runs for Philadelphia, which ended a three-game winning streak. The surprising Indians have won 12 of 16 and are 22-1...

Francisco Lindor could be MLB’s top prospect by end of 2013

Two separate MLB scouts have reportedly told Yahoo! Sports baseball columnist Jeff Passan that Cleveland’s Francisco Lindor may end up being the most highly-touted prospect in baseball by the end of 2013. http://twitter.com/jeffpassan/status/33965564487811072 Lindor is reminiscent of Jurickson Profar: excellent plate discipline, fantastic glove, will hit for average and if power...

Latimore is settling in well with Indians organization

Change is inevitable in the game of professional baseball, and for Double-A Akron outfielder Quincy Latimore, the changes started from the bottom – literally. Latimore, who was formerly a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, was required to wear his pants down over his socks before he joined the Cleveland Indians’ farm system. Now, he’s done away with the high socks...

Around The Farm: May 15, 2013

Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game. Anthony Santander (RF, Lake County): 3-for-5, 2 R, 1 RBI It has been said that coverage of Santander has been lacking due to the lovefest for fellow up-and-comer Dorssys Paulino. As...

Indians' Mark Reynolds OK after stinger

Cleveland Indians slugger Mark Reynolds has been one of the best hitters in baseball to start the 2013 season. For this reason, the team and its fans were all the more concerned when he suffered what appeared to be an injury last night. However, Reynolds and manager Terry Francona told reporters -- including Michael Radano of MLB.com -- after the game that the infielder is OK....

Minor Happenings: Several injured prospects are on the mend

In this week’s week-ending edition of Minor Happenings, Tony provides a bevy of updates on the walking wounded in the Indians system with players such as Alex Monsalve, Chen-Chang Lee, Shawn Armstrong, Joey Wendle and a half a dozen others.

Tribe splits with Yanks in front of larger-than-expected crowd

I attended last Thursday afternoon’s 9-2 Indians win over Oakland at Progressive Field. It was an absolutely perfect day; mid-70′s and sunny. We are talking shorts and t-shirt weather. Fast forward four days and I was breaking out the winter coat and gloves that I had put away about three weeks ago as the Indians and the New York Yankees played a traditional doubleheader. There...

Battaglia's game winning hit snaps Mudcats nine game home losing streak

ZEBULON, NC - The Carolina Mudcats may have been down late in the bottom of the ninth, but they were not ready to roll over and extend their losing streak just yet. With the score 4-2 in the bottom of the ninth, Zach MacPhee’s third hit of the night was a double down the right-field line. He advanced to third on a groundout to second by Medina. With one out, Naquin beat out the...

If you love the Indians AND the Twins, this is the perfect hat for you (Photo)

Of course, this applies to virtually nobody, which means whoever came up with a price of $14.97 for this clearly defective Indians/Twins mashup baseball cap is out of their minds. (We can not confirm or deny the comments by the Reddit poster that this hat was found at Wal-Mart). Photo via Reddit. H/T Extra Mustard.

The Corner of Carnegie and Ontario finds an ace

 We all got a taste of first place here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as your Indians found themselves all by their lonesome in first on Monday afternoon after Justin Masterson did his best Cy Young impression in beating the New York Yankees. I’m not going to lie. It tasted pretty good. Sure, the Indians were in first place at this point last year, and the year...

The Phils yesterday won their third straight game as they defeat the Indians, 6-2. The Phils took the lead in the bottom of the first as, with one man out, Kevin Frandsen hits a solo home run, his second home run of the season, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead. The Indians took the lead in the top of the second as, with runners on second and third, and with one man out, Michael Brantley...

Can Reynolds, Indians stay hot?

There were certain facets of life I felt were resolute. The serenity of day games at Wrigley. The guitar riffs of Dan Auerbach. Ray Allen's jump shot. Ron Swanson's mustache. Given the mercurial nature of our culture, it's comforting and reassuring to have these pillars of constancy. So when one of these columns disintegrates, my world is sent spiraling into disarray...

Closing Games Haunts Mudcats in Losing Streak

ZEBULON, N.C.-  On a beautiful night at Five County Stadium, Carolina Mudcats pitcher Jacob Lee challenged the Red Sox batters through the sixth inning, though Salem caught up with him in the seventh inning.  After a great start, both offensively and defensively, the momentum slowed and the Mudcats inability to consistently close games haunted them yet again as Salem took the...
