• Indians Begin Final Full Week of Season

    August 30, 2010 No comments

    The Indianapolis Indians begin the final full week of action in the 2010 season with a record of 68-68 and find themselves eight and a half games behind the division leading Columbus Clippers and seven games behind wild-card leading Louisville.

    Indianapolis is in the midst of a five game series with the Clippers as they split the first two games over the weekend.

    Indianapolis won the first game 8-0 Saturday as the Tribe got off to a fast start scoring two run in each of the first two innings before putting up four runs in the fourth inning.

     CF Alex Presley went three for four with two RBI  and Brandon Moss hit his 21st homer of the season in the first inning.

    Dana Eveland started for the Tribe and and limited the Clippers’ offense to just three hits over 3.1 innings of work in a spot start for the Tribe after RHP Charlie Morton was recalled by the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier in the day, while reliever Brian Bass was just as impressive as he allowed only one base runner in a season-long 3.2 inning relief stint and picked up his third win of the season.

    Indians’ RHPs Steven Jackson  and Jean Machi  pitched the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to close out the scoreless effort for Indianapolis.

    Clippers starter David Huff was tagged for only his second loss this season against seven victories.

    The Clippers came back yesterday to beat Indianapolis by the score of 10-5 using a five run 7th inning to put the game away. Clipper 3B Jared Goedert went four for five including a homer to pace Columbus’ attack.

    Presley continued his torrid hitting as he went three for five including three RBI and 2B Brian Friday also contributed going two for three and scoring two runs but it wasn’t enough as Indian’s starter Mike Crotta gave up 5 runs on 8 hits in only four innings of work to take the loss and run his record to 5-9 on the season.

    Columbus starter Zach McCallister earned the victory to improve his record to 9-11 as he threw five innings of 7 hit, 3 run baseball.

    Indianapolis now comes home to begin their final homestand of the regular season, beginning with a three-game series with the Clippers tonight at 7:00 p.m. RHP Jeremy Powell is the probable starter for the Tribe, while RHP Yohan Pino is expected to get the nod for the Clippers.
