Jhonkensy Noel (Lake County, DH): 0-4, 3 K – It was an underwhelming performance, but his promotion was one of the biggest stories of the week in the Indians’ farm system. 

Nolan Jones (Columbus, 3B): 2-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB – While Jones has struggled mightily recently (0-for-18 in his last six games entering last night), he was clutch in the tenth inning on Wednesday, driving in the first run of the inning and scoring the last tally of the three-run frame.  Also of note:  the steal was his tenth of the season.

Richie Palacios (Columbus, starting 2B): 2-2, 1 R ,1 2B, 1 SB, 1 HBP – Palcios had a good night at the plate before leaving the game with an injury following his two-out double in the fifth.

Christian Cairo (Lynchburg, 2B): 2-4, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 HR, 2 RBI – Cairo broke out of a three-game 0-for-10 slump in style, completing the more difficult half of the cycle.


Gabriel Arias (Columbus, SS): 1-5, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 K – Arias’ on-base streak reached 26 games on his tenth homer of the season.

Jonathan Engelmann (Akron, 1B): 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K – Engelmann’s multi-hit effort was the highlight of a largely forgettable evening at the Corner of State and Main.

Tanner Burns (Lake County, SP): ND, 4 IP, 6 H, 2 R (both earned), 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR allowed, 1 HBP – Burns has struggled since coming off the Injured List, allowing five earned runs on 11 hits in 9.2 innings in three starts.

Micael Ramirez (Lynchburg ,1B): 2-4, 2 R – Ramirez continued his stellar start in non-complex ball in his second start as the Hillcats first baseman.

Johnathan Rodriguez (Lynchburg, RF): 1-2, 3 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB – Rodriguez’s August OPS is now over 1.100 (1.110) following this stellar mix of power and plate discipline.

Carlos Gutierrez (DSL Red, CF): 1-3, 1 R, 1 3 B, 1 RBI – Gutierrez’s fifth-inning triple to right (the first of his career) drove in RF Ronald Pena for the only Indians Red RBI of the day.  The other run in the fifth scored on the throw on a K-2-3 strikeout of SS Fran Alduey while the first two scored on a pair of third innings balks – half of the Red Sox Blue balk total in yesterday’s makeup of Tuesday’s rainout.
