Clippers lose lead late as bullpen fails; Fall 6-4 to Syracuse


Columbus, Ohio — The Columbus Clippers in the 2010 baseball season usually get a good effort from the starting pitcher and some early run production and that has led to 16 wins so far in the first four weeks of the season. But not on Monday night at Huntington Park as the Syracuse Chiefs came from behind against the Clippers bullpen to win 6-4.

The third game of a four game series was all Columbus until the Chiefs, Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals rallied for a five run outburst in the seventh inning to win their first game of the series.

Syracuse starter Shairon (Shy-ron) Martis earned his first win of the season and Seth Bynum hit his third homer of the season.

The Clippers drew first blood, scoring runs in the third inning. With two outs and two runners on base, shortstop Jason Donald lined a  two-run RBI double into the right centerfield gap to put Columbus up 2-0. In the fourth inning, Columbus (16-10) scored again when Brian Buscher knocked in Jordan Brown.

The Syracuse Chiefs (15-10) were only able to get one base runner through the first five innings against Columbus’ number 5 starter Josh Tomlin.

In the sixth inning, Syracuse second baseman Seth Bynum led off with a 375-foot homer to the left centerfield bleachers and it was 3-1.

The seventh was the big inning for the Chiefs as Mike Morse led off with a walk. Chase Lambin followed with a strikeout. Chris Duncan was the next hitter. Morse advanced to second on a throwing error by pitcher Carlton Smith. Duncan then singled home Morse to cut the deficit to 3-2 Columbus. Seth Bynum then singled and was followed by Carlos Maldonado who flied out to center for the second out. Eric Bruntlett was the next hitter and he doubled up the left centerfield power alley to score Bynum and Duncan, it was 4-3 Chiefs. Pete Orr promptly hit an RBI single to score Bruntlett. The next batter was Kevin Mench who reached on an infield single and Orr scored on a throwing error by Columbus third baseman Brian Buscher and the score was 6-3. Columbus never really threatened after that.

For Rob Lowery, graduation is a blessing considering he is only one of two members of his family to have earned a college degree.

Graduation for Kurt Huelsman means continuing a family tradition. Huelsman becomes the fifth sibling in his family to earn a diploma from UD.

The seven Flyer seniors, Dan Fox, Luke Hendrick, Kurt Huelsman, Marcus Johnson, Rob Lowery, Mickey Perry and London Warren all walked across the stage on Sunday May 2, 2010 to receive their diplomas. The Class of 2010 will continue a long line of men’s student-athletes to graduate from Dayton.

NBA PLAYOFFS: Eastern and Western Conference (Saturday results)

compiled from wire reports

John Salmons (nba)

John Salmons scored 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting, Kurt Thomas had 8 point, 13 rebounds and the Milwaukee Bucks never let up after a hot start in 107-89 Game 3 win after a three-day layoff.

Atlanta still leads the series 2-1 after two-double=digit wins at home, when the bcuks looked overmatched without the injured Andrew Bogut.

Milwaukee is 12-26 at the Bradley Center in the playoffs.

Kevin Durant Thunder (nba)

Kevin Durant scored 22 points, Russell Westbrook added 18 points and eight rebounds, and the Thunder evened the first-round series against the Lakers with a 110-89 victory in Game 4.

For the second straight game, the Thunder capitalized on a significant edge at the foul line and on the boards despite the presence of the Lakers’ 7-foot tandem of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.

Oklahoma City never trailed after the opening 5 minutes and led by double digits for the final three quarters in a thorough dismantling.

Among those seated at courtside in Oklahoma City were Governor Brad Henry, NFL wide receiver Mark Clayton and Gerald McCoy, the former Oklahoma defensive tackle taken third overall by Tampa Bay in the NFL draft.

Brandon Roy (nba)

Portland coach Nate McMillian and team owner Paul Allen, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft were convinced by Brandon Roy to let him play despite skepticism by team doctors.

Roy was activated off injured reserve and then helped Portland to a 96-87 win over Phoenix that evened their series at two games apiece.

Eight days removed from arthroscopic surgery on right knee, Roy made his surprising return to the court to the theme from  “Rocky” blasting from the Rose Garden sound system. Roy then made a key 3-pointer late in the game that shifted the momentum to the Trail Blazers.
