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

Triple-A Columbus (24-15) - Host Columbus topped Durham 5-1, led by C Carlos Santana's fifth-inning grand slam. Santana, the Indians No. 1 prospect, went 2-for-2 with two home runs, five RBI and two runs scored...LHP and starter Mike Gosling (3-0, 2.96 ERA) tossed six 6 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out five to earn the win...Not long after Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera fractured his left arm early in the Tribe's game at Tampa Bay, Columbus SS Jason Donald was pulled from the game. Odds are he's headed to Florida for Tuesday's 1:10 p.m. series finale.

Double-A Aeros (14-23) - The Aeros enjoyed a rainy but scheduled day off Monday...The team hits the road Tuesday for a quick, three-game series at rival Altoona...RHP Josh Judy's stay in Akron didn't last long as the reliever was promoted to Triple-A Columbus Monday after just two appearances with the Aeros since joining them last week from extended spring training...Last year with the Aeros, Judy went 4-3 with a 3.10 ERA and 11 saves in 36 appearances.

High Class-A Kinston (17-20) - Kinston and visiting Salem were postponed due to rain. Really, it's true. For the first time in nearly two years - spanning 89 games - a game was rained out at Historic Grainger Stadium Monday night in Kinston...For a little history, consider that last season, Kinston became the first Carolina League team in 10 years not to have a rainout in a single season...Mother Nature willing, the game will be made up as part of a double header Tuesday beginning at 5 p.m...On a somber note, Kinston players and fans are mourning the recent death of Evelyn Kornegay, who died Friday of pancreatic cancer at 81. "Mama", as she was widely known to thousands in the Kinston area, housed players for 15 years and was one of the team's biggest fans.

Low Class-A Lake County (27-11) - Lake County also enjoyed a scheduled day off...C Chun Chen was named the Midwest League Batter of the Week for the period May 10-16. The 21-year old from Taiwan hit .435 in six games, including two doubles, three triples, a home run, five RBI and four runs scored.
