In game two the young baseball season, fans at Huntington Park thought they would see a pitcher’s

duel  between two of the best IL pitchers from 2009, Hector Rondon of Columbus and Brad Lincoln of Indianapolis.

Did they see a pitcher’s duel ?

No, not hardly!

Friday night, Rondon and Lincoln combined to go 6.1 innings and allow 14 runs on 18 hits. When all was said and done, the Indians  outslugged Columbus 14-12 and both teams are 1-1 in the young season.

During the game, there were two mega-prospects having an individual battle: Carlos Santana of Columbus and Pedro Alvarez of Indianapolis. The edge goes to Alvarez who went 2-5 with 2 home runs and 5 RBI’s compared to Santana who doubled and homered, driving in 3 runs in 5 at bats.

The Indians were held scoreless in the first inning, but scored in each of the next 6 innings including a 5-run 5th that gave them the lead for good. Josh Tomlin took the loss in his Triple-A debut, going 1.2 innings and allowing 5 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks. Shelley Duncan hit his first homer of the season in a losing effort.

Saturday evening at 7:05 the series continues with Jeanmar Gomez making his first Triple-A start for Columbus against Indians lefty Donnie Veal.

The fans at Huntington Park in Columbus had an enjoyable opening night as the baseball season returned. How often does a fan see 17 runs in a game especially in the first game of the season when the pitching is usually ahead of the hitting.

The Clippers beat International League West rival Indianapolis Indians, 17-4.

Carlos Santana (MiLB)

Carlos Santana homered twice in his IL debut and Carlos Carrasco struck out eight batters in five and two-thirds innings, allowing three earned runs and earning the victory.

Indians starter Kevin Hart was ejected in the fourth inning for throwing a pitch behind Santana. Moments later, Santana took relief pitcher Jeremy Powell over the fence to tie the game at three. Wes Hodges then broke the tie with a home run in the next at bat and Columbus was on its way to a rout.

Chris Gimenez homered in his first at bat of the season for the Clippers. All nine starters for Columbus recorded at least one hit in the game. The home team scored in all five innings against the Indians bullpen. Highlighted by eight runs in the seventh.
