The Dragons’ Josh Garton went 2-for-4 at the plate. Cameron Satterwhite’s 15-game hitting streak was snapped as he went 0-4. His streak was the second longest hitting streak in the Midwest League in 2010 to date and the third longest in Dragons history.

The Clippers scored five runs in the fourth inning on Tuesday night and followed that up with five more on Wednesday night leading to another win.

The Clippers were down 2-1 going into the fourth inning, as Alex Presley gave the Indians an early lead 2-0, with a high, two-homer off the right field Wendy’s Hamburger Balcony 318-feet from home plate in the first inning.

Columbus cut the lead in half in the third inning as Jordan Brown drove in Michael Brantley with a sacrifice fly to right field.

In the fourth inning, Jordan Brown delivered again, clearing the bases with a three-run double to center field over the head of Alex Presley. Luis Valbuena and Michael Brantley also drove in runs in the inning as well.

Just like Tuesday’s game, there were ejections. Home Plate umpire Chris Ward threw out Clippers catcher Lou Marson on a ball 3 call to Indy 1B Jeff Clement in the 5th inning. And then Ward ejected Indy 3B Steve Pearce who was thrown out trying to score from second base by Clippers CF Jose Constanza in the 5th inning as well.

Carlos Carrasco got the win for Columbus, pitching five innings, throwing 106 pitchers, allowing two earned runs on with hits. He struggled with his command at time walking five but struck out six.

Indians CF Alex Presley hit a very impressive homer in the eighth inning off of Clippers reliever Justin Germano. His high drive cleared between the Dispatch scoreboard and the right field Wendy’s Hamburger Balcony and onto Nationwide Blvd and rolled up to 400 feet into a parking lot across from Huntington Park. Quite impressive!

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Lefthander David Huff won his second straight start for the Clippers Tuesday night and Jared Goedert continued his hot hitting in giving Columbus a 7-3 win over the Indianapolis Indians in the opener of a home-and-home 4-game series.

Huff, despite throwing 97 pitches, went five innings for the win. He gave up five hits, struck out five and walked two. Those walks were the first for Huff since he has been in Triple-A.

“My concern is efficiency when I pitch and with the high pitch count I have to work on that area. My fastball and changeups were good and I was able to get hitters to swing over a lot of pitches. I also felt my location was good especially on the fastball,” noted the 24-year-old Huff.

Columbus trailed briefly at 1-0 before tying the game at 1-1 in the fourth inning. The Clippers jumped ahead to stay 6-1 with four more runs keyed by a three-run homer by third baseman Jared Goedert, who hit his 10th homer since joining Columbus from the Double-A Akron Aeros on June 4th.

Goedert, who is hitting .326, keyed the first of three Indian ejections when lefty Corey Hamman threw inside on the next hitter Jordan Brown and was thrown out of the game. Later in the sixth inning, manager Frank Kremblas, a Canal Winchester native, and designated hitter Brian Myrow, a former Clipper, were tossed out for arguing balls and strikes.

Clippers manager Mike Sarbaugh, liked the work of David Huff. “Despite throwing deep in the count, I liked his changeup and it was good off the fastball. I also liked our depth on our ball club and we showed the running game tonight”. Columbus stole 5 bases and received three from outfielder Jose Constanza.

The Clippers will be back in action tonight to close out the homestand; game time is 7:05 p.m.
