Pre-Season Clippers: Grady Sizemore Has a Promising Showing; Clippers edge OSU, 4-3

4/05/11 -Columbus, Ohio- Coming off a championship year, thus far the Clippers have shown potential for what may be another good run at the championship as they went on to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes in a 7-inning exhibition game by a final count of 4-3. A game that started off slow eventually took off and included an out-of-the park shot by Luke Carlin 12 (who was playing for the Bucks). Fans enjoyed cheap $5 admission and brisk but bearable weather. The OSU left fielder David Corna was shaky at times, but the wind certainly played a factor in that. The game had one double-play (shown below) that got most of the fans on their feet. There is a lot to be excited about especially after the solid play from Carlin, Wes Hodges, and Luis Valbuena.  One thing that made the game especially interesting to one personal viewer (ME) was the play of #41 Grady Sizemore in blue..

After starting the game with a ground out that went from second to first (base) CF Grady Sizemore went on to have a not great, but solid 7-innings. He was responsible for one run scored and stole a base and finished the night 2-4 at the plate.

Coming off of a knee injury, Sizemore demonstrated he is in the right track in terms of gaining back strength and getting the reps needed before he suits up for the Cleveland Indians.

“We need to get in the flow of the season”
“It was a good team effort”
-Manager Mike Sarbaugh

With one more exhibition game against Akron the team heads into regular season play with their first game Thursday at Indianapolis. The Clippers do not return to home until the 16th with a game against Toledo. They then could have great success but will be tested as they have 10-game home stretch followed by 5 away to round out the month of April.
