Wood has been on the disabled list since April 3 with a strained right lat muscle and he recently made 2 appearances in AA Akron on a rehab assignment that began on May 3. He tossed a scoreless inning in his most recent appearance of May 5...

First off, I am still on my way to Myrtle Beach, and with that Minor Happenings will be a day late this week and very abbreviated. I will post it on Saturday morning, though there is a chance it may not post until Sunday depending on how things go once I get in today (Friday).
Anyway, here are some videos of Lake County Captains' players I shot in a couple of my visits to see them the past...

Game Recap 5/6: Rondon Bombed Again, But Gets Win
Rondon Allows Four Homers In Win
The Clippers started off an eight game road trip in fine fashion Thursday night with a 10-5 win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Hector Rondon gave up a quartet of home runs but made it through 6 innings to earn his 1st win of the 2010 season.
Brian Buscher tripled in a run and then scored in the 3rd inning to give the Clippers their 1st lead of the...

Game Recap 5/5: De La Cruz Masterful In Loss
Kinston Blows 9th Inning Lead Again
Kinston starter Kelvin De La Cruz was outstanding for eight innings, but a ninth inning rally by Lynchburg led to a 3-2 walk-off win for the Hillcats on an RBI single by Alex Buchholz. It was the second straight game in which the Hillcats have beaten Kinston on a ninth inning walk-off.
The K-Tribe started the scoring with a two-out rally in the...

Game Recap 5/4: Haley Has Career Night For Captains
Haley Dominates in Captains Win
Captains starting pitcher Trey Haley dominated on the mound and the Lake County Captains took advantage of five Dayton Dragons errors on their way to an 8-3 win on Tuesday.
The Captains scored three runs in the bottom of the third inning without a base hit thanks to a couple of throwing errors by the Dragons defense. One run scored on one of the bad...

This site was founded by myself almost three years ago, and while I contribute most of the articles and information housed here on this site, something that has long been overdue in my book has been to acknowledge all of the other contributors here on the IPI. People that without their help and generousity this site wouldn't be near as complete with the content or have all the extra aesthetic features....

Clip & Dirty: 5/3
Josh Tomlin had a short, but good outing against the Syracuse Chiefs. He left in line for the win with the Clippers up 3-1 in the 6th. Handing things over to the Clippers bullpen has been a smart move for most of the season, but a combination of walks, an error followed by a singles parade in the 6th led to a 5-run outburst and a 6-3 lead that the Clippers couldn't overcome. They lost the 3rd game...

Clippers lose lead late, fall 6-4
A good effort from the starting pitcher and some early offense has been the formula for many of the Clippers 16 victories in the first four weeks of the 2010 season, but not on Monday night at Huntington Park, as Syracuse came from behind for a 6-4 victory.
Jason Donald's two-RBI double put the Clippers on top in the third inning, and they expanded...

Herrmann Hoping For Big League Chance
Right-handed reliever Frank Herrmann has done what so few in professional baseball do, which is to go from being an undrafted free agent signing to becoming a legitimate big league pitching option.
Herrmann, who turns 26 years old later this month, was signed by the Indians after the 2005 Draft when after all 50 rounds no one had signed him. He was on their radar, but because he pitched at...

Akron's Week That Was: 4/26 - 5/2
The Aeros have had their fair share of bad stretches in this young season, but last week was certainly a stretch that they would love to forget. They played just five games this past week due to a rainout and off day but they couldn't win any of those five as they now fall into last place of the Western Division. After a two-game sweep in Altoona, the Aeros returned home to be swept by Binghamton....

Game Recap 5/2: White Dominates, Smith Blows Lead
White Deals, But Tribe falls to Salem 2-1
Alex White had his best outing of the season, but Salem came back late to walk off with a 2-1 win Sunday afternoon in Virginia. White went a season high seven innings, giving up just two hits (both singles) while walking one and striking out five. Just like his last outing, White had a no hitter going into the fifth inning.
Kinston would score...

It's becoming quite evident that the Kinston Indians aren't going to be an easy team to figure out during the early part of the Carolina League season. When the season started, it was a known commodity that the K-Tribe's starting rotation was one of the best in all of baseball. Their offense was a bit of a question mark. Although anchored by top-ten products Abner Abreu and Jason Kipnis, the rest...

Clippers Crush Syracuse 13-2
The Clippers greeted the Syracuse Chiefs rudely to Huntington Park Saturday night with a 13-2 drubbing in the series opener. Jordan Brown drove in a career-high 6 runs and went 2-4 with his 1st double of the season.
Jeanmar Gomez' outing may have gotten lost in the offensive explosion for Columbus, but the Venezuelan righty twirled a very effective outing,...

Here is a video recap of all the Triple-A Columbus Clippers videos I shot when out in Columbus two weeks ago. Thanks again to Michael Taylor for the assistance with editting these down and adding a nice professional touch to the videos with the graphics and such.
I will get more video of more players the next time I visit Columbus in a few weeks, but for now this grouping showcases the following...

Kinston started the scoring in the first inning when Jason Kipnis hit a home run to right field, his team leading third round tripper of the season. The...
