    July 12, 2011 No comments

    The Indianapolis Indians are taking a few days off in conjunction with the All-Star break. The Tribe has a record of 47-45 at the break and find themselves eleven and a half games out of first place in the International League’s West division behind the Columbus Clippers. The Clippers own the best record in the IL at 58-33. Indianapolis is two games behind second place Louisville whose record stands at 49-43.

    While odds for a division title might seem long for the Tribe, Indianapolis is in a race for the wild card spot. Gwinnett and Pawtucket are currently leading the chase for the wild card with identical 50-41 records. Scranton is a game back at 48-41 followed by Louisville a game and a half out.

    Indianapolis is currently three and a half games out of contention for the wild card with twelve more games remaining against Louisville and four games remaining with Gwinnett. Indianapolis has concluded their season series with Pawtucket winning the series five games to three. The Indians also have eight more games left with division leading Columbus.

    The Indians will have the next couple of days off for the Triple-A All-Star Game festivities. Infielder Matt Hague and manager Dean Treanor will represent Indianapolis for the game tomorrow night in Salt Lake City, Utah. The game will be broadcast live at 9:00 on MLB Network.

    The Tribe’s next contest will be at Columbus on Thursday at 7:05 p.m. as part of a four-game series against the Clippers. Indianapolis’ next homestand begins on Monday July 18, with Charlotte and Rochester on the docket for the eight-game home stretch.
