Not really. But if you want to ignore last night's Cleveland defeat, you might want to check out the scores from the Indians' full season affiliates last night, who went 4-0, winning by the margin of 44-12.
Matt LaPorta hit his 12th HR of the season (his 11th at home), everyone in the Clippers lineup got at least one hit, and Kevin Slowey (7IP, 1ER, 2BB, 7K) had his best start since his season debut in April.
The hits were not as evenly distributed in this game, as Chun Chen (two doubles) and Kyle Bellows (double and a HR) led the way with four hits apiece and Thomas Neal chipped in three. TJ House rebounded nicely from his first bad start at AA, backed up in the bullpen by recently acquired, 7'1" right-hander, Ludovicus Jacobus Maria Van Mil (seriously, that is his name).
Every Mudcat had a hit, including a double and a HR from Jeremie Tice and triples from Tyler Holt and Tony Wolters. Starter, Kyle Blair, struggled through three innings, but he was relieved by a near perfect four innings (one hit, no walks, five Ks) from Jordan Cooper.
Lake County rode a four-run fifth inning to the most pedestrian victory of the evening. Francisco Lindor hit his eight double of the season, while Elvis Araujo pitched six strong innings.
Maybe the big league squad will follow their lead today...
