    Indians OF Carlos Moncrief continues to swing hot bat in 'B' game

    Indians outfielder Carlos Moncrief, who went 4 for 4 on Wednesday, continued to swing a hot bat on Thursday. Moncrief, originally drafted as a pitcher out of Chipola College in 2008, walked, singled, doubled and homered in his four trips to the plate in a "B" game against the Reds. "I've been waiting for spring training to come," Moncrief said, per the Northeast Media Group. "It's not like it snuck up on me. Inside, I was burning and waiting for it to come, so just to be able to express that on the field and it comes out, that's what feels good to me."
