RAYS 10, INDIANS 3 - Top Stories - Ohio
CLEVELAND: Fans who watched the Indians on Friday night saw a lot of runs for the seventh time in the past eight games. Unfortunately, for the Tribe, it was the visiting team that did most of the scoring.
Indians 9, Angels 5: Hitters pour it on Dan Haren, Angels - Top Stories - Ohio
CLEVELAND: Who says the Indians are deficient on the offensive side? You can bet Dan Haren doesn't think so. The Tribe's oft-disparaged batsmen buried the Angels' starter under a barrage of hits, forcing him out of the game after only 4⅓ innings. Meanwhile, Zach McAllister (almost) acquitted himself admirably again, giving up three earned runs in six innings.
Orioles 9, Indians 8: Lonnie Chisenhall injured in loss to Orioles - Indians - Ohio
BALTIMORE: The Indians don't have the kind of firepower to win many slugfests. And since the Tribe and Baltimore Orioles weren't playing horseshoes, coming close didn't count. But there were different ways to dissect the 9-8 loss at Camden Yards. The Indians scored enough runs to win most games, but gifted the Orioles with three runs in the first inning.
Gomez send down to Columbus - Indians - Ohio
Beacon Journal sports writer NEW YORK: To nobody's surprise, the Indians optioned Jeanmar Gomez back to Columbus on Monday and called up left-handed reliever Scott Barnes. But Barnes (or another reliever) will be returning to Triple-A on Thursday, when Gomez was scheduled to face the Orioles at Camden Yards.
Indians report: Fastball isn't everything - Indians - Ohio
HOUSTON: When Nick Hagadone was throwing 97- and 98-mile-per-hour fastballs last week against the Reds, manager Manny Acta wasn't surprised; he said the Indians' reliever often throws in the mid-90s. It is not uncommon these days to see relief pitchers deliver fastballs 94 and 95 mph. Chris Perez does it routinely.

2012 NBA Draft: Barnes remains an option for Cavs at No. 4 - Top Stories - Ohio
Once the lottery was complete and the Cavaliers learned they were selecting fourth in Thursday's draft, Harrison Barnes immediately became the obvious choice linked to the team most often. And why not? The Cavs were high on Barnes last year and probably would've taken him fourth had he entered the draft after his freshman season.
2012 NBA Draft: Cavs may have to trade up to land Beal - Cavs - Ohio
If the Cavaliers are serious about drafting the top-rated shooting guard in this draft, they may have to get moving to catch him. Beal's stock has been soaring since the NBA combine, when he measured in an acceptable 6-foot-4, and could be off the board by the time the Cavaliers select fourth on Thursday.
Astros 8, Indians 1: Rookie battles Tribe bats - Top Stories - Ohio
HOUSTON: After losing to the Astros 8-1 Saturday at Minute Maid Park, the Indians added another name to their enemies list of tyke tormentors who throw with their left arms. The newest member of this group of lethal lefties is Dallas Keuchel, who in his second major-league start pitched a complete game, stifling the Tribe offense on 108 pitches - an average of 12 per inning - that traveled 89 miles per hour or less.
