Since the season began on the Clippers first homestand of the season, a big inning was the difference for Columbus as they won 5-3 to open a two-game series with the Louisville Bats.

This time it was a five-run sixth inning that propelled the Clippers and their first winning streak since July of 2009.

Former Ohio State star Scott Lewis made his first start of 2010 and was very impressive, allowing one run and two hits over six innings, while striking out ten.

Wes Hodges RBI-double off of Bats starter Justin Lehr started the rally in the sixth inning. Brian Buscher’s sacrifice fly gave the Clippers their first lead, and then Jose Constanza brought home two more with a double. Constanza would later come around to score on a wild pitch.

Danny Dorn hit a two-run home run in the ninth against Mike Gosling to cap the scoring, but the rally fell short and Columbus improved to 3-2 on the young season.

Tuesday night the series continues at Huntington Park as Carlos Carrasco  goes against Louisville’s Sam McClure. Game time is 6:35 p.m.

The Columbus Clippers showcased their potent offensive attack again on Sunday afternoon, scoring 9 runs on 12 hits and beating Indianapolis 9-4.

Yohan Pino went 5 strong innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits while striking out 5 batters.

Carlos Santana was the leader of the offense, clubbing his 4th homer of the season in the first inning off of losing pitcher Chris Jakubauskas.  The Indians rallied for 2 runs in their half of the 4th inning to take a brief 2-1 lead, but Columbus grabbed the lead for good with 2 runs in the 5th on a Damaso Espino single and a Trevor Crowe sacrifice fly.

The Clippers tacked on a 5-run 7th, highlighted by 2 Brian Bixler doubles to take a 9-2 lead that would be threatened, but not overcome. Carlton Smith and Frank Hermann combined for 3 scoreless innings of relief and Jess Todd pitched the 9th inning, giving up 2 runs.

Mickelson wins 2010 Masters; Tiger finishes 4th and will take time off again

compiled from staff and wire reports

“Lefty” as he is called on tour got a long awaited break on Sunday.

Phil Mickelson won his third Masters title, shooting a 5-under-67 to pull away for a three-stroke win over England’s Lee Westwood.

Even better than winning the green jacket for Mickelson was seeing his wife waiting behind the 18th green at Augusta National.

Amy Mickelson had not been at a golf tournament since being dianosed with breast cancer 11 months ago and his golf game was being affected by it. Furthermore, his mother, Mary Mickelson, was diagnosed with breast cancer in July.

Determined to win the Masters for his family, Mickelson made two remarkable par saves from trees, seized control with a 15-foot birdie putt in the heart of Amen Corner and then made a gutsy play with a 6-iron off the pine straw and over Rae’s Creek on the par-5 13th hole to set up a birdie. It was the kind of shot that was brought Mickelson so much criticism for taking unnecessary risks.

His final birdie only mattered on the scorecard, 16-under-272, the lowest by a Masters champion since Tiger Woods in 2001. Mickelson had this won as he walked up the 18th fairway to a massive ovation.

Tiger Woods performed as though his five-month hiatus never happened. He broke par all four rounds, closed with a 69 and tied for fourth with South Korea’s K.J. Choi, five shots behind. Tiger told CBS Sports analyst Peter Kostis after the match that he’ll take some more time off to evaluate his game and situation.

For Lee Westwood, this was his best chance at winning a major, but he failed to make putts to stay in contention.

Anthony Kim closed with a 65, the best score of the tournament, and finished alone in third.

Mickelson became the eighth player with at least three Masters titles, and it was the fourth major of his career, breaking out of a pack that had included South Africa’s Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington of Ireland and Fiji’s Vijay Singh from his generation.

Steelers trade troubled Holmes who will get a 4-game suspension

compiled from staff, wire and internet reports

Santonio Holmes (nfl)

The New York Jets have been the busiest team during the NFL’s offseason making several bold moves to get them closer to that goal of a Super Bowl.

Their latest move is that of acquiring talented but troubled wide receiver Santonio Holmes from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night for a fifth-round pick in this month’s draft.

Earlier on Monday, the NFL has suspended Holmes for 4 games in the upcoming 2010 season due his conduct this offseason. The 26-year-old Holmes is facing a lawsuit in Florida from a woman who claims he threw a glass at her, cutting her above the eye, in an Orlando nightclub. The police have been investigating the woman’s claims. Holmes denies hurting the woman, and a witness has since taken responsibility for tossing the glass, according to Holmes’ attorney.

Not a stranger to trouble,  In 2008, Santonio was arrested for possession of marijuana, and he was involved in a domestic violence in 2006; the misdemeanor charges were dismissed. However, sources have said that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell warned him that repeated off-the-field issues would result in a suspension.

Holmes,  the 2009 Super Bowl MVP, gives second-year quarterback Mark Sanchez another big-time target to throw to in an offense that already has receivers Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, talented tight end Dustin Keller and recently signed free agent running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

The 5’11  Ohio State product was a first-round pick in 2006,  has 235 career catches for 3,835 yards and 20 touchdowns and adds a speedy complement to the jets’ passing game. He’s coming off the best season of his career statistically, after having 79 catches for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns. Holmes’ presence should allow Cotchery to assume more of a slot role, where he is extremely effective, and take double coverage off of Braylon Edwards.

After surprisingly making it to the AFC championship game last season, the Jets and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have been aggressive despite the league’s “Final Eight” restrictions that have limited who they could sign. The Jets have traded for Holmes and cornerback Antonio Cromartie, and signed Tomlinson, safety Brodney Pool and kicker Nick Folk.

Indy Grand Prix of Alabama goes to Helio Castroneves

compiled from staff, wire and IndyCar reports

“Spiderman” as Helio Castroneves is called because of his climbing of fences at the race track after a win, won the inaugural Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on Sunday in Birmingham after carefully conserving fuel and then held off Scott dixon after a caution with two laps to go.

The three-time Indianapolis 500 winner took over in the stretch run when Marco Andretti headed to pit road with seven laps to go.

Helio beat Dixon by over half a second and nobody else was closer than 7 seconds to the lead, making it a two-man chase for the flag at the end. He didn’t allow any openings for Scott Dixon to pass him on the narrow race track that offers few easy if any ways to pass and makes fuel strategy as important as any daring andpassing on-track maneuvers.

Dario Franchitti finished third. Will Power, who won the first two races and was dominant during qualifying and practices, had to settle for fourth, still clinging to a comfortable points lead. Castroneves earned 50 points to move into second place place, ahead of Franchitti, Justin Wilson and Scott Dixon.

Everybody’s favorite driver, Danica Patrick continued to struggle, starting 19th and finished 19th.
