Calica Cruising Along, Krauth’s Scoreless Streak, And More in Scrappers’ Scrapbook

August 9, 2016 |

A good start to the month of August was negated for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, who were swept in three straight close contests against Hudson Valley on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

The week began better for the Scrappers, who salvaged their series at home against Williamsport with a 2-1 win last Tuesday before heading to West Virginia for three with the Black Bears. They swept the set with three one-run victories, but lost 4-2, 3-2, and 5-2 to Hudson Valley to spoil the four-game winning streak.

The Scrappers (22-27) return home on Tuesday for a six-game homestand with Batavia and Williamsport. They trail State College by 12.5 games in the Pinckney Division, but will look to gain a little ground while hoping to improve on an 11-12 home record this season.

Calica Continues Hitting, McKenzie Allows a Run, and More in the Scrappers’ Scrapbook

July 31, 2016 |

Mother Nature has been unkind to the young Mahoning Valley Scrappers this week. The Indians’ short-season affiliate has had three rainouts and a pair of doubleheaders in the last week because of the weather.

The Scrappers were set to play three with Connecticut on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, but had to settle for a Monday doubleheader and Tuesday’s finale. They swept the three games to push their winning streak to five straight. After Wednesday’s off day and Thursday’s rainout in Aberdeen, the Scrappers played their second doubleheader of the week, winning game one 7-1 before a 6-2 loss in the nightcap to end their six-game winning streak. Saturday’s matchup was similarly drowned out by rain.

Mahoning Valley (18-22) returns home Sunday for three with Williamsport before hitting the road for six straight against West Virginia and Hudson Valley. They have incredibly pulled within four games of the .500 mark and are eight and a half games in back of State College in the New York-Penn League Pinckney Division.

Another Mejia Streaking, Calica Raking, and More in the Scrappers’ Scrapbook

July 24, 2016 |

Things may have finally turned a corner for the Cleveland Indians’ Mahoning Valley Scrappers affiliate, who endured nearly a month of tough games to start the New York-Penn League season.

After a 3-11 start to its season and a 3-7 mark to begin July, Mahoning Valley has gotten into the win column with much more regularity, posting an 8-3 record over its last eleven games, including a season-high four-game winning streak from July 12 through 15.

The Scrappers (14-21) are now nine games in back of the State College Spikes in the Pinckney Division, fifth out of six teams, but with a sizable lead over the cellar-dwelling Batavia Muckdogs. The club will look to continue taking series by series, as the Scrappers have won four straight sets, including a three-game matchup against Lowell to start their current six-game homestand. They will welcome in Connecticut on Sunday for three games before hitting the road for Aberdeen.

McKenzie Strong, Ice Homers, and Several Pro Debuts in Scrappers’ Scrapbook

July 2, 2016 |

It’s been a rough start to the season for the young Mahoning Valley Scrappers (3-12), but they did pull out a pair of wins this week to give them three so far in New York-Penn League play.

They were 2-4 on their homestand to wrap up the month of June, losing two of three to Batavia and Auburn. Their 10-4 win last Saturday over Batavia was their second double-digit scoring game of the early season, a feat that they nearly matched in their 9-5 win over Auburn on Tuesday. They hit the road for a three-games series this week against State College (St. Louis Cardinals affiliate), but they lost the opener on Friday, 4-3.
