IL FINALS GAME 1:Columbus Clippers 18 Durham Bulls 5; Clippers lead 1-0

After going through the longest drought between Governors’ Cup games in franchise history, the Clippers made up for the lost time Tuesday night at Huntington Park, by jumping all over the Durham Bulls from the opening inning, to take game 1 in the best-of-five series, 18-5.

Jose Constanza singled, stole a base and then scored on a Cord Phelps single to open the scoring. But that was just the start of the nightmare for the Bulls. Wes Hodges banged out a two-run homer to the deepest part of the ballpark, scoring Phelps.

Jared Goedert later doubled to score Jason Kipnis (who singled in his first Triple-A at bat after being called up to Columbus to replace Drew Sutton, who was recalled to Cleveland) and Jerad Head rounded up the five-run inning with a single to score Goedert.

Bulls pitcher Richard De Los Santos (0-2) was ejected in the third inning for hitting Hodges.

Clippers pitcher David Huff (1-0), pitched smoothly and didn’t allow a base runner until a lead-off single in the fifth inning.

All told, Columbus scored their 18 runs on 20 hits and every starter in the lineup had at least two hits a piece and everyone scored at least one run.

The Clippers will play at Huntington Park for the final time in 2010, when they host the Bulls in game two on Wednesday night. Columbus right-hander Zack McAllister is scheduled to take to the mound opposite Durham’s Anuery Rodriguez.
