The Cleveland Indians announced this week that Columbus RHP Justin Germano has been named the team’s Minor League Player of the Week for July 24-30.

The Player of the Week award recognizes an individual performance in the Indians Player Development System and is announced each week through the end of the minor league baseball season.

This past week, the 28-year-old Germano pitched the first perfect game in Columbus Clippers club history as he retired 27 straight batters, striking out 7 on 95 pitches, 68 strikes in the team’s 3-0 win over the Syracuse Chiefs. He never reached a 3-ball count and recorded 11 groundouts and nine flyouts to go with the seven punchouts.

The perfect game also was the first thrown in the International League since 2003 and marked the 6th no-hitter in Columbus history as well. Additionally, he was named the International League Pitcher of the Week.

A 13th round selection by the San Diego Padres in the 2000 June draft, Germano was signed by the Indians as a free agent in March 2010.

PERFECT GAME for Clippers’ Germano in Syracuse

Justin Germano made history on Tuesday night as he became the first Columbus Clippers pitcher ever to throw a perfect game, shutting out the Syracuse Chiefs in New York, 3-0.

Germano had one of those games where every pitch he made worked to perfection. He retired the first twenty four batters he faced through eight innings.

In the bottom of the ninth, Germano faced the first hitter, Jhonaton Solano, who flew out to center field. Jeff Frazier then flew out to left field for out number two. The next hitter was centerfielder Corey Brown and Germano struck him out and the perfect game was put into the record books for ever!

The first Clippers perfect game and the first thrown in the International League since 2003. It is the sixth no-hitter in Clippers history.

Scranton Yankees hold off Clippers, 7-5

Friday night, the Columbus Clippers needed a solid performance from their starting pitcher, they gave the ball to Yohan Pino, who has been one of the few mainstays in the rotation in 2010. Unfortunately, Pino was not able to come through for his team.

The talented right-hander allowed six runs on 13 hits to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees over 4.2 innings of work and the offense couldn’t make up the difference or stage a winning comeback in a 7-5 loss.

Strasburg has off night, but keeps team in game

compiled from staff, wire and Syracuse Chiefs news

In the minor leagues, Stephen Strasburg can have an off night, not have his best stuff and still have a chance to win a game or even give his team a quality start.

Strasburg, who had not allowed a run in winning his first three Triple-A starts for the Syracuse Chiefs, went five innings Monday night against the Toledo Mud Hens, allowing five hits and two runs, one earned. He left with the score tied at 2-2, however, his team won 6-3. He threw 52 pitches, 36 for strikes, with no walks and five strikeouts.

The franchise right-hander had allowed only four hits and no runs in 18 1/3 innings in his first three starts. In 45 1/3 innings in eight starts between Double-A Harrisburg and Syracuse, he has struck out 54 and  yielded just 22 hits and 10 walks. Strasburg has an overall ERA of 0.99; 0.39 with the Chiefs.

Strasburg, the number 1 pick in the 2009 amateur draft by the Washington Nationals, was finally touched for an unearned run in the third, ending his scoreless  streak at 20 1/3 innings at the minors’ highest level. Deik Scram hit a grounder over first base and down the right-field line for a triple and scored on a passed ball.

Strasburg, who threw 92 pitches in his previous outing, was not very happy when he was pulled and neither was the crowd of 13,288, the second-largest in franchise history behind the 13,766 that turned out for his Triple-A debut on May 7. Most headed for the exits when they knew his night was done.

Strasburg, who signed a $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals, is expected to make one more start for Syracuse before being promoted to Washington.
