Found May 14, 2013 on Fox Sports Ohio:
The Cleveland Indians head into Philadelphia as one of the hottest teams in baseball and are hoping to stay that way by repeating their most recent performances against the Phillies. The Indians will seek their 14th win in 18 contests in the opener of a two-game series Tuesday night. Cleveland (21-16) earned another victory in its brief return home Monday as Jason Kipnis hit a solo home run in a 1-0 win over the New York Yankees. The Indians, though, fell 7-0 in the finale of a doubleheader that was required because of a pair of rainouts in April. The Indians are visiting Philadelphia with four wins in their last five on the road and will try to add to that by duplicating their splendid performance earlier this season against the Phillies (18-21). Cleveland outscored Philadelphia 20-2 and posted a 31-8 advantage in hits during a two-game home sweep April 30-May 1. The Indians will try to win another game with help from Scott Kazmir (2-1, 4.87 ERA), who will seek his third victory in...

Day Before Surgery, Halladay Celebrates (?) 36th Birthday

Peoples' career off to a fine start with Lake County

PN Interview: RHP Prospect Nic Hanson
