Indians release inconsistent reliever Lewis

The Cleveland Indians have released reliever Jensen Lewis from the team’s Triple-A affiliate in Columbus.

The 27-year-old said on his Twitter account, @JLEWFifty that he was “completely shell-shocked and never thought this would happen.”

Lewis was a third-round pick by Cleveland during the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, and as a rookie in 2007 helped the Indians reach the American Championship Series, compiling a fine 2.15 ERA in 26 games.

This year, the Cincinnati, Ohio native could not earn a spot on the Indians roster. After a tough Spring Training, Lewis cleared waivers and was sent to Triple-A Columbus to open the season. In 22 games for Columbus, he went 3-2 with a 5.14 ERA allowing 15 walks in 28 innings.

In parts of four seasons with the Tribe, Lewis went 7-11 with a 3.68 ERA in 161 games.  In 2010, Lewis garnered a 2.97 ERA in 37 games out of the bullpen.

Pawtucket wins suspended game 5-2; McAllister goes to 7-0 with regularly scheduled game win


Clippers celebrate win #28 of season ( file)

The Pawtucket Red Sox took control of the suspended game from Thursday from the outset and won 5-2 in nine innings.

To refresh everyone’s memory from Thursday’s game, which was delayed before the game started for 31 minutes.

When the game began, Josh Reddick homered in the first inning, his 11th of the year for a 1-0 Red Sox lead. The Clippers came right back for a 2-1 lead on homers from Jason Kipnis, his 4th and Cord Phelps, his 7th, of the back-to-back variety.

With the Clippers still leading 2-1 after 3.1 innings, the rain came again causing a delay of one hour and ten minutes and a suspension of play.

When play resumed, there were new pitchers on the mound for both teams. Clevelan Santeliz for Pawtucket and Jensen Lewis for Columbus.

The Red Sox jumped on Lewis before he could settle in on the mound. In the fifth inning, Matt Sheely tripled off the centerfield fence; Jose Iglesias, who entered the game when Daniel Nava was designated for assignment by the Red Sox, knocked home Sheely with a slow roller to second base and the game was tied 2-2.

Pawtucket was not done yet.

In the sixth inning, Lars Anderson singled with one out; Ronald Bermudez, who entered the game when the Boston Red Sox promoted Drew Sutton to the majors, doubled to deep left centerfield scoring Anderson all the way from first base and it was 3-2. With two out, Luis Exposito singled to center to score Bermudez and make the score 4-2 Pawtucket.

The Red Sox scored a final run in the ninth inning when Brent Dlugach singled; Exposito singled to left center to advance Dlugach around to third and Sheely’s fielder’s choice grounder to shortstop scored Dlugach to make it 5-2.

While Pawtucket was scoring on the Columbus bullpen, the Clippers could not solve the bullets being fired by Santeliz and Jason Rice.

Santeliz was the winner, he’s 1-0. The right-hander pitched 2.1 innings, allowed 2 hits and struck out 1. Santeliz might’ve finished the game but left due an injury to his left knee while trying to cover first base in the sixth inning. Rice got the save, his first of the season, after pitching 3.2 innings of hitless ball, walking one and five strikeouts.

Jensen Lewis was the loser and drops to 3-1 on the season. He pitched two innings, allowed four hits, three earned runs with a walk and a strikeout.

In the regularly scheduled game, Columbus came back to win 3-0.

Zach McAllister is proving he is the ace of the Clippers pitching staff, as he became the first pitcher in the International League to reach seven wins after throwing seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits and striking out seven in a complete game effort.

Josh Rodriguez, who has what the scouts say in baseball, ‘deceptive bat speed’ with pop, hit a home run into the left center field bleachers to give Columbus a 1-0 lead in the third inning.

Columbus completed the scoring in the sixth inning when Pawtucket secon baseman Tony Taylor drifted too far out into center field on a high popup by Jerad Head and dropped the ball allowing Lonnie Chisenhall and Chad Huffman to score for the final of 3-0.
