A look at how the Indians Minor League affiliates fared Tuesday:

Triple-A Columbus (36-24) - Host Columbus lost 7-5 to
Rochester...All three of the Clippers pitchers gave up runs, beginning with starter and LHP Aaron Laffey, who allowed three runs on four hits over five innings...RHP Justin Germano gave up two more ruins on four hits in just two innings and LHP Jeremy Sowers (1-3, 5.01 ERA) took the loss in allowing two runs on two hits (including a home run) over the final two frames...C Carlos Santana, the Indians No. 1 prospect, had one hit - a solo home run...CF Michael Brantley was a perfect 5-for-5 with two RBI and 2B Josh Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with two RBI.

Double-A Akron (28-30) - Host Akron won its eighth consecutive game on 3B Lonnie Chisenhall's walk-off two-run home run resulting in a 4-3 victory over New Hampshire...CF Tim Fedroff went 2-for-4 with a double...2B Cord Phelps went 3-for-5...RHP and starter Alex White tossed six strong innings, not allowing an earned run and holding the Fishercats to just one run...RHP's and relievers Omar Aguilar and Chen-Chang Lee combined to shut out the visitors for the final three innings, Lee (3-3, 5.01 ERA) earning the win.

High Class-A Kinston (29-30) - Visiting Kinston lost 2-1 to Wilmington, an unfortunate outcome considering starter and RHP Marty Popham blanked the Blue Rocks for seven solid innings while scattering six hits and striking out five...2B Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with three doubles and provided the team's lone RBI.

Low Class-A Lake County (39-19) - Visiting Lake County cruised to an 8-2 victory over Clinton...Starter and LHP Matt Packer (4-3, 2.37 ERA) limited the Lumber Kings to two runs (one earned) while scattering seven hits over 5 1/3 innings...relievers and RHP's Tyler Sturdevant and Jose Flores combined to no-hit Clinton over the final three innings...SS Casey Frawley provided a bulk of the offense all on his own, going 2-for-3 with a double and five RBI.
