Weather almost cost the Clippers a chance at victory Sunday, but they scored two runs just in the nick of time to force a suspension of the final game in their four-game set at Pawtucket.

Columbus holds a 4-3 lead,  thanks to scoring two runs in the top of the sixth inning. The game will be resumed when the PawSox visit Huntington Park in late July.

Had Columbus not tied the game or taken the lead, they would’ve simply been dealt a rain-shortened loss as heavy showers hit one at-bat after Columbus pulled ahead. They’ll have the bases loaded with two outs in the top of the sixth when play resumes.

Josh Rodriguez’ two-run homer in the third put the Clippers ahead early, but the PawSox answered with single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings against Carlos Carrasco to take the lead.

The Clippers record remains at 41-29 as they head to Rochester for a four-game series starting Monday night at 7:05 p.m.

The Great Lakes Loons built up a 7-0 lead and then held off a Dayton Dragons comeback attempt in the ninth inning as the Loons beat the Dragons in a Sunday afternoon game, 7-5. A crowd of 8,987 at Fifth Third Field saw both teams conclude the first half of the Midwest League’s split-season schedule.

Dragons starting pitcher Ricky Bowen (1-1) suffered the loss. He worked six innings, allowing six hits and seven runs (six earned) with one walk and eight strikeouts. His strikeout total matched the Dragons team season-high.

The Loons received homers from Christian Lara (7), Jamie Ortiz (5) and Angelo Songco (7). The Dragons got a homer from Steve Carlson (1).

Justine Henin beat number 7 Andrea Petkovic 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to win the UNICEF Open on Saturday in Den Bosch, Netherlands. It was her first grass-court title in three years.

After trading the first two sets, Petrovic broke the top-seeded Belgian in the second game of the final set before holding serve for a comfortable lead 3-0 lead.

But Henin, who was playing the tournament in a tuneup for Wimbledon, held serve and blasted a forehand winner on her way to breaking the German in the fifth game. Henin, who did not drop a set or face a tiebreak heading into the final, completed a stunning rally by breaking Petkovic in the ninth game.

Despite twice reaching the final, Henin is still looking for her first Wimbledon title. She resumed her career in January after 20 months in retirement.

compiled from staff, wire and LPGA reports

The newest number 1 player in women’s golf is really no surprise.

Ai Miyazato (LPGA)

Miyazato has won four LPGA events this year and this is the first time she is ranked number 1. She replaces Jiyai Shin of South Korea, who became number 1 on May 3 following the sudden retirement of longtime number 1 golfer Lorena Ochoa.

In Sunday’s final round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic, Miyazato fired a 7-under-par 64 to beat M.J. Hur of South Korea by two strokes.
