Clippers steal one in ninth inning from Toledo; leads IL West by 9 1/2 games

compiled from staff, wire and Columbus Clippers news

Before Sunday’s loss to the Columbus Clippers, the Toledo Mud Hens were 33-0 when they entered the ninth inning with a lead. And with their closer Jay Sborz converting on all 15 of his save attempts, the Clippers trying to come back from a 4-3 deficit looked very bleak even for a hot team.

Cord Phelps led off the ninth inning by drawing a walk from Mud Hens closer Jay Sborz. Jose Constanza singled up the middle before Josh Rodriguez put down a sacrifice bunt moving the runners up to second and third.

The Mud Hens walked pinch-hitter Jordan Brown to load the bases, hoping that the next batter Jared Goedert would hit into a game-ending double play.

Goedert did just the opposite. He delivered a bases-loaded two-run double to lead the Columbus Clippers to a 5-4 decision over arch-rival Toledo at Fifth Third Field. The win was the seventh in a row for the Clippers. The loss equaled a franchise worst 11 straight for the Mud Hens.

The Clippers have a record of 53-32.

Columbus had a rarity in the second inning as Nick Weglarz hit a ball to left-center that hit the wall and caromed into right-center field. Weglarz speedily circled the bases before center-fielder Wilkin Ramirez could get to the ball and throw it in.

It was the first inside-the-park home run for the Clippers since Larry Broadway collected one against Buffalo on May 30, 2008.

Evan Turner leads Philadelphia 76ers to victory

Votto leads Reds past Mets, 8-6; also winning Fans voting for final All-Star player

compiled from staff and wire reports

Joey Votto wasn’t chosen for the NL All-Star Squad by Philadelphia Manager Charlie Manuel, but it hasn’t stopped him from going about his job of leading the Cincinnati Reds to their first division title since 1995.

In the Reds 8-6 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field, Votto clubbed two long homers in a ballpark that doesn’t give up many because of its spaciousness. He went 3-for-4 with 3 runs scored and knocked in 2.

The Reds as a team are doing well. They’ve won five of six and 11 of 14. They are 12 games over .500 for the first time all year. With their win on Monday night, the Reds are now two games up on the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central Division. St. Louis was idle last night.

The game also had Reds rookie left-hander Travis Wood pitching with three days rest because Aaron Harang couldn’t go because of an issue with his back.

Wood, staked to a 7-1 lead, gutted it out for 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits. He walked two and struck out five, throwing 98 pitches. He left the game after laboring through the fifth inning.

The key to the game came in the top of the fifth inning for the Reds. With the bases loaded and nobody out, and the count 2-2 on Scott Rolen, he took off for first base thinking the ball hit him. Home plate umpire Jerry Meals ruled it a foul tip into the catcher’s glove, strike three. But Reds manager Dusty Baker and Scott Rolen argued and asked Meals to get help from the other umpires.

The umpires after a brief summit, changed the call with Rolen going to first base and Brandon Phillips scoring, making it 2-1 Reds. Mets manager Jerry Manuel came out to argue and was quickly tossed from the game.

That was a key and huge play, because Drew Stubbs lined a hit to left to score two runs, 4-1. Corky Miller followed up with a two-run double to right-field, 6-1 and pitcher Travis Wood tripled to make it 7-1.

After the Mets staged a brief rally to cut it to 7-6, the Reds upped the lead to 8-6 as Joey Votto hit a solo homer in the sixth inning, his 21st of the season which leads the National League.
