JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Cleveland Indians prospect Jason Kipnis hit a 3-run HR and a 2-run triple Friday (10/16/2010) as the Peoria Javelinas routed the Peoria Saguaros 13-5.

The 5 RBIs were a welcome relief for the promising second baseman, who had gone hitless in his first 11 at-bats in the Arizona Fall League before smacking a triple. “I got to the point where I stopped trying to do too much,” Kipnis told after the game. “I just worried about hard contact today.”

Fellow 2B (and Hebe) Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers had a tougher day. In the opening game of the American League Championship Series, the Rangers were leading the New York Yankees 5-1 when the Yanks scored 5 runs in the 8th inning. Kinsler led off the bottom of the 8th with a walk, but a baserunning error got him caught in a rundown and tagged out.
