The Tribe are 5-0 and on a roll after they topped the Oakland Athletics (a much better nickname than the A's) 14-10 on Monday. Join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he looks back at this game and the best and worst performances of the day, all while working in references to Casey Coleman, Jackson Browne, the Cincinnati Reds, and THE Ohio State Buckeyes.
There isn't anyone left in Iowa to write about so lets just say Casey Coleman had a good start. Also, Esmalin Caridad should be back up in the pen. He has been very tough this year.
Trey McNutt struck out 3 and allowed 1 ER in 3 IP. I thought they would keep this guy in 1 inning situations to see how he responded to that role but if anything it seems he is getting...

Chicago Cubs pitcher Casey Coleman had to leave Wednesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox after getting hit in the hand with a broken bat.
It happened in the bottom of the seventh inning as the bat of White Sox batter Eduardo Escobar shattered and the barrel of the bat hit Coleman in the knuckles.
Escobar's contact with the ball resulted in a grounder...
I'm not sure who had it first and I don't care enough to go back and look, but both Carrie Muskat and Paul Sullivan have reported that Carlos Marmol has been placed on the disabled list after injuring his right hamstring last night, with Casey Coleman being called up to replace him on the roster.

Round Rock hasn't had any trouble getting into the jet stream above Principal Park. The Express have belted four homers in two games including a back-to-back pair Friday night off of Casey Coleman that were the difference in the 4-3 contest. But the home team remains homerless, having split the first half of a four-game set to open the season.
