Chris Schwinden went 7 innings and allowed just 1 run on three hits, and Russ Canzler provided much of the offense, driving in five runs on a home run and a double.Matt LaPorta went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.
Schwinden was picked up by the Indians off waivers from Toronto a couple weeks ago, and last night was his third start with the Clippers. He started the season with the Mets, and was claimed by Toronto just four days before the Indians nabbed him. He's 25 years old, and has a decent minor-league track record (7.7 SO/9, 2.2 BB/9, 9.1 H/9).
Geovanni Soto went the full six innings (in the minors the road time bats 7 times in a doubleheader game), striking 9 and allowing 2 runs on 5 hits. The Akron offense managed only one extra-base hit, a Nick Weglarz (who passed through waivers) double.
Will Roberts (5th Round, 2011 Draft) allowed five runs on seven hits in 5 innings of work. Ronny Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with a triple.
