McNutt’s nightmare started unexpectedly as Great Lakes Loons shortstop Christian Lara singled to open the game. Lara stole second and scored on a two-out double by Bo Greenwell of the Lake County Captains. Then Great Lakes’ Jerry Sands, the eventual winner of Star of Stars, stepped to the plate and showed everyone in attendance why he leads the league in homers, by hitting a fastball over the left field wall to put the East up 3-0 and they would never lose the lead.

While Sands earned MVP honors, Bo Greenwell went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in his All-Star debut.

Clippers lead PawSox 4-3; game suspended by rain will continue in July

Info courtesy of Columbus Clippers

Weather almost cost the Clippers a chance at victory Sunday, but they scored two runs just in the nick of time to force a suspension of the final game in their four-game set at Pawtucket.

Columbus holds a 4-3 lead,  thanks to scoring two runs in the top of the sixth inning. The game will be resumed when the PawSox visit Huntington Park in late July.

Had Columbus not tied the game or taken the lead, they would’ve simply been dealt a rain-shortened loss as heavy showers hit one at-bat after Columbus pulled ahead. They’ll have the bases loaded with two outs in the top of the sixth when play resumes.

Josh Rodriguez’ two-run homer in the third put the Clippers ahead early, but the PawSox answered with single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings against Carlos Carrasco to take the lead.

The Clippers record remains at 41-29 as they head to Rochester for a four-game series starting Monday night at 7:05 p.m.
