Indians Baseball Insider:
The Akron Aeros found success despite being away from Canal Park all week, going 3-2 during their road trip to New Hampshire and Portland and moving back to .500 on the season. The team actually made it back above .500 for the first time since May 12 after Saturday's win, but a loss on Sunday dropped them back down to an even 34-34.
The offense carried the load for the Aeros, posting a collective .339/.403/.585 line with an amazing 22 doubles, four triples, and five home runs in the five games. They also showed good plate discipline with an remarkable 21:19 SO:BB.
The Aeros will look to continue their hot hitting as they return to Canal Park for a six-game series against the Trenton Thunder and New Britain Rock Cats. Tonight's game starts at 7:05 p.m.

Honestly, there might not be another player in the whole organization that is as talented as Moncr...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
NOW THAT IS GROSS
The Mariners and Athletics were exposed to a sewage backup Sunday in Oakland, forcing both teams to flee their locker rooms.
As surprising as the Indians off-season spending spree was, I still think the club’s basic strategy is unchanged: develop a young core of players internally and dip into free agency when you need it. It just so happened that they needed a lot of help this past off-season, and there was a bit of a perfect storm of available money, available talent, and a protected draft pick....
Today the Cleveland Indians have recalled third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus and optioned right-handed pitcher Matt Langwell to Columbus.
Chisenhall, 24, has been with Columbus since May 13th where he hit .390 (41-for-105) with 8 doubles, 2 triples, 6 home runs and 26 RBI in 27 games for the Clippers (.455/.676/1.132). Since May 29th he has hit .467 (28-for...
The Cleveland Indians again looked to have trouble with their offense. They didn’t get on the scoreboard until the 6th inning and the Royals had a 2 run lead since the 3rd inning. For the second night in a row it look like the Tribe was going to fall to the Kansas City Royals. That was until the 8th inning when the Indians offense came to life. It started out with a Michael Bourn...
Earlier this season, Cleveland Indians slugger Nick Swisher was hampered by a sore left shoulder. It appears that the injury never fully healed, as he was given Sunday off to rest his shoulder, according to Mark Emery of MLB.com.
Swisher aggravated his shoulder on Saturday while batting against Jordan Zimmermann. Manager Terry Francona deemed Swisher available for Sunday'...
Could “Team Streak” be trending upwards again? Your Cleveland Indians were a blown save away from sweeping the Washington Nationals out of Progressive Field this weekend in grand fashion. They settled for a series win, which you will take all day long especially when the opposing pitchers are Tribe killer Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmerman, and Stephen Strasburg. They didn’t really...
Cleveland, OH — Corey Kluber escaped three no-out jams with no damage and the Cleveland offense provided just enough support, as the Indians beat the Nationals 2-0 to win the three-game series.
After a leadoff single by Anthony Rendon in the fourth, Ryan Zimmerman hit a ball to newly-acquired Indians third baseman John McDonald, who threw a double play ball past second baseman...
First and foremost, Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there who are celebrating with your kids today. There’s nothing more “Father’s Day” to me than a little bit of baseball, a little bit of U.S. Open Golf, and a whole lot of relaxing.
Well, some of us have to write a bit, but you get what I’m talking about.
To those that spend even a few extra minutes to stop...
Player of the Game: Corey Kluber (8 innings, 7 hits, 0 ER, 0 BB / 8 SO)
Now that’s how you pitch!
Indians starter Corey Kluber pitched the best game of his life on Sunday as the Tribe shutout Washington, 2-0 to take the three-game series. Pitching out of a bases loaded no out jam in the seventh inning and another two innings with runners on first and third and nobody...
Slowly but surely, it appears as if the Cleveland Indians may be coming around.
The Tribe went 4-2 during this past week and won two series against both the Texas Rangers and the Washington Nationals. While their record of 34-34 is still far from great, the Tribe is still just 4 ½ games behind the Detroit Tigers for first place in the American League Central.
The key for the Indians...
Shaw hides his face after Hosmer ties the game with a double
The Cleveland Indians had been having a fairly nice year compared to expectations. After today they are trailing the Royals by a half game. It looked like Cleveland was in line for a win after Carlos Carrasco worked 7 shutout innings. The 8th inning proved to be a little trickier. After putting a man on second,...

The Cleveland Indians have climbed back to .500 following an eight-game losing streak. The Kansas City Royals need one more win to do the same.
