Jeremie Tice, DH-CAR: 3-5, HR (8), 2B, 4 RBI, 2 R, K.
Tice, AKA @BigOleChunkyBoy, has been having a great season for the Mudcats. He's 2nd in the league in HR, leads the league in OPS (1.068) and SLG (.667). He's been a steady presence in the middle of the Mudcats lineup, and has been absolute murder on LHP. He's hitting an outstanding .526/.545/1.158 with 3 HR and 14 RBI in 19 AB against southpaws this season. The 26-year old Tice is old for the level, and is repeating the Carolina League where he hit .258/.356/.436 with 11 HR in 77 games. Tice is doing what he can do to establish himself as a prospect, as there's nothing he can do to get promoted up the organizational ladder besides keep on hitting. Tice made it all the way to 3B on his double last night, but the scorers decided that the big man had only hit a double and advanced to 3rd on an error. Big, Bad Jesus Aguilar scored all the way from first on the hit, and I wish I had my stopwatch out on the play because I'm pretty sure it took at least three and a half minutes for the whole thing to unfold.
Kevin Slowey, SP-COL: W (3-3), 7 IP, ER, 3 H, 7 K, 2 BB. Slowey had his best start since coming over to the Indians organization last night. On the season, he's 3-3 with a 5.14 ERA, 34 K and 13 BB in 49 innings of work for the Clippers.
Dan Wheeler, RP-COL: IP, ER, 2 H, K. Wheeler's 1st outing in AAA this year, and he managed to hold on to the 11-run Clipper lead in the 9th yesterday. It was not a save situation.
Jason Donald, SS-COL: 2-5, 3B, 2 RBI. Donald has been hot for the Clippers, hitting an even .400 since being sent down to AAA.
Matt LaPorta, LF-COL: 1-3, HR (12), 2 RBI, 2 BB, 2 R, K. Matt LaPorta can hit AAA pitching.
Jared Goedert, RF-COL: 2-3, RBI, 2 BB, 2 R. Goedert really isn't a right fielder, but he more than earned his promotion to AAA Columbus and I'm glad they were able to find a spot for him. He finished up in AA Akron with a .395/.476/.613 line with 5 HR and 17 RBI in 35 games, and picked up right where he left off for the Clip Show.
Cord Phelps, 2B-COL: 1-5, 2B, R, K. Phelps has hit in 8 of his last 10, putting up a .300/.349/.500 line with 2 HR and 2 2B in that timeframe.
T.J. House, SP-AKR: W (2-1), 6 IP, ER, 2 H, 5 K, 4 BB. House bounced back from his only bad start of the season, allowing just one run on two hits. He did walk more than two batters in a game for the first time this year, but balanced it out with the 5 K. In 8 starts between Akron and Carolina, House is now 4-1 with 1 2.63 ERA and has 49 K and 15 BB in 48 IP.
Loek van Mil, RP-AKR: IP. The giant Van Mil has appeared in 4 games for the Aeros, throwing 6 innings, allowing 1 earned run, striking out 7 and walking 2.
Chun Chen, 1B-AKR: 4-5, 2 2B, 5 RBI, R. Akron exploded for 16 runs yesterday, and Chun was one of the main reasons why. He hit his 12th and 13th doubles of the season and drove in a season and team-high 5 runs. His season line is now up to a solid .311/.385/.432 in 35 games for the Aeros.
Kyle Bellows, 3B-AKR: 4-5, HR (3), 4 RBI, 2B, R. Bellows is normally known more for his glove than for his bat, but the slick-fielding 3B hit a grand slam on his way to a 4-hit night for the Aeros. The big game raised his season line to .231/.331/.361.
Roberto Perez, C-AKR: 1-3, 2 RBI, 2 BB, R. One of Perez's RBI came on a bases-loaded walk. Another defense-first guy with a nice night with the bat for the Aeros, Perez's line is now at .226/.333/.333 with 1 HR and 5 RBI in 28 Eastern League games.
Thomas Neal, RF-AKR: 3-5, 2 R. Neal has had a dissapointing season so far in 2012, but has picked things up lately, going for a .313/.410/.344 line in his last 10 games.
Kyle Blair, SP-CAR: 3 IP, 5 ER, 4 H, 2 K, 2 BB. Blair struck out the first two batters he faced, then didn't record a K in the rest of the outing. He gave up a couple of hard-hit balls (2 HR) and a couple of "ground balls with eyes." He probably pitched better than his overall line indicates.
Jordan Cooper, RP-CAR: W (1-2), 4 IP, H, 5 K. Cooper came in on relief of Blair and was absolutely dominant. He struck out 5 in 4 innings of work, allowing just a single hit.
Tony Wolters, 2B-CAR: 2-5, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, 3 R, SB. Big day for Wolters, who continues his hot month of May.
Carlos Moncrief, RF-CAR: 2-5, 2 RBI, BB, R, 2 K. Moncrief has recorded three straight 2-hit games, and has hit in 7 of his last 8 overall. He's up to .258/.351/.461 overall, with 4 HR, 20 RBI and 5 SB.
Jake Lowery, C-CAR: 2-5, RBI, R, 2 K. Lowery had a lot of pressure on him last night, as there was an entire little league team from his home state of Virginia there supporting him, and a large collection of other friends and family as well. He came through with a couple of knocks and an RBI, and did a nice job blocking some tough pitches in the dirt.
Ronny Rodriguez, SS-CAR: 2-5, K, CS. Rodriguez also made a couple of outstanding plays in the field last night, and in his last 10 games has gone for a .294/.314/.441 line.
Anthony Gallas, LF-CAR: 3-5, 2 RBI, R, K. Local boy Gallas is up to .280/.351/.439 in 25 games for the Mudcats, and is pushing hard for a promotion closer to home in Akron.
Elvis Araujo, SP-LCC: W (1-4), 6 IP, ER, 5 H, 6 K, BB. Araujo picked up his first professional win outside of the complex leagues last night, and has been having a solid season for low-A Lake County. Overall, he's 1-4 with a 2.40 ERA, 41 K and 15 BB in 45 IP.
Francisco Lindor, SS-LCC: 1-4, 2B, K. Off-day for Lindor, as he was able to collect just one hit yesterday.
