Fly the Parot! Edwin Carries the Indians to 5-2 victory over the Twins.

Story written by Tim Whelan –

The Indians came into father’s day looking for a 4-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins. The Indians did exactly that. The Indians beat the Twins 5-2. The Indians have a 2 game lead in first place. The Indians move their record to 36-31. The Twins fall to 34-33 on the season.

STARTING PITCHING FINAL LINES:

Trevor Bauer (CLE) Win (Record 6-5). Bauer went 7 innings, 2 runs, 2 earned, 2 walks, 8 strikeout, ERA of 5.54.

Kyle Gibson (MINN) Lose (Record 4-5). Gibson went 6 innings, 8 hits, 3 runs, 3 earned, 3 walks, 4 strikeouts, 2 home runs, ERA 6.56.

SUMMARY: It took until the 4th inning for the Indians get on the board. With a second deck bomb from Edwin Encarnacion. Fast forward to the 6th inning. Edwin did it again. This time a 2-run bomb into left field. Edwin finished the day with 3 hits, 2 home runs (16), 5 RBIs (36) including a Sac fly in the 9th inning.

The Twins would battle. Getting 2 runs from the help of Eduardo Escobar, and Eddie Rosario. The Twins got a nice effort from Kyle Gibson, keeping the twins within 3 runs through the game. But the Indians bats would be too much for the twins to recover in this one.

Andrew Miller would get the save for the Tribe. It was his first on the season. Why was Indians manager Terry Francona using Miller in the 9th? As of now, it seems as though he is trying to balance the workload between Cody Allen, and Andrew Miller. How long will this switch last? Only time will tell.

PREVIEW: The Indians will travel to Baltimore to take on the struggling Orioles. Two aces will toe the rubber. Corey Kluber who is 5-2 on the season with an ERA 4.15, will take the mound for the tribe. Dylan Bundy who is 7-5 with an ERA 3.29, will be taking the mound for the Baltimore Orioles. First pitch will be at 7:05 pm ET. Watch live on Sports Time Ohio or tune on WTAM 1100.

Captains fall to Loons 6-2 Monday Night

caps

By Germaine Worthy

The lake county Captains hosted the Great Lake Loons on a beautiful Monday night game. Although the Captains lose 6-2 it started off with a bazaar scenario; lead-off hitter Zach Mckinstry struck-out, argued the call and got thrown out immediately. The captains put up 10 hits, but could capitalize leaving running in scoring position. Oneil Cruz came in for McKinstry at third base and made a wicked diving catch. The Captains starting pitcher Juan Hillmann struggled today going 4 and 2/3 innings and giving up 5 earned runs. A.J. Alexy was the starting pitcher for the Loons and he had a great game going 4 innings and giving up no runs or hits.

The Loons hoped on the Captains early with B. Davis home run in the first inning. Rincon hit a 2 run homerun in the top of the third as well. For the Captains L. Wakamatsu and C. Capel each drove in a run , but it was after most of the damage was done.

This win gives the Loons the first of the season (1-4) and the Captains fall to 2-3. The next game is Tuesday April 11th, first pitch is at 6:30 at Classic Stadium.

Preview OHSAA State Wrestling Finals

Story written by Tim Whelan—

 

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Wrestling is coming to a closed. It’s been another exciting year of wrestling. But now is the time, State Finals time. For the very lucky wrestler’s will be crown champion tonight.

Starting with Division one, in the 113-weight class Senior Braken Mead from Liberty vs Freshman Bryce Hepner from Lakewood St. Edwards. This should be a very exciting and heart stopping matchup. I expect this match to be low scoring tonight. Though I originally thought this could be a high scoring match.

The big story headline tonight will be; Can the Freshman beat the Senior? Only time will tell.
We skip ahead now to the 132-weight class in Division one. Zackary Donathan from Mason vs Allan Hart, a returning state champion of Lakewood St. Edwards. St. Eds has continue its dominants once again this year. I have Allan Hart as the close favorite for this matchup.

In the 160-weight class for Division one, Senior Nick Kiussis from Brunswick will wrestle Brendan Price, Senior from Elyira. This should be a spectacular match. Senior vs Senior. Who will end their career on top? This will be more a defensive match. Whoever gets the first takedown could very well win this match.

Let’s skip ahead to the 132-weight class of Division two. Where Junior Mitch Moore of St. Paris Graham Local vs Ben Pasiuk, Sophomore of Carrollton. Mitch is seeking his third straight state title. This is a match I expect Mitch Moore to control and win lopsidedly. Mitch has a phenomenal tournament and should have no problem tonight.

At the 152 weight-class in Division two, undefeated Junior Rocky Jordan of St. Paris Graham will be facing Sid Ohl, a Senior from Ashland. There might be some pressure involved in this one. Not because of the obvious that it is the finals. But because for Jordan this is about continuing the family legacy.

We end the preview with Division three 170-weight class. Senior Kaleb Romero of Mechanicsburg, against Senior Brett Vonderwell from Delphos St. John’s. Why is this a match to keep an eye. Kaleb will be wrestling for his fourth straight title. Looking to conclude his career as a four time state champion in Division three wrestling.

Updated team standings:

Division One: Lakewood St. Edwards with 143.0 points. Followed by Elyria (113.5), Liberty (112.0), Wadsworth, and Brecksville-Broadview Heights.
