Willis pitches well but Clippers finally beat Louisville, 4-3

The good news is the Columbus Clippers rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat division-rival Louisville on Wednesday night at Huntington Park.

The other good news for Cincinnati Reds fans is that another arm is getting ready for a callup to the big club.

That arm belongs to left-hander Dontrelle Willis who had been dominating in going 2-0 with wins over Toledo and Indianapolis prior to his start against Columbus.

“D-Train” as he is called, did not dominate in this game because the Clippers made him pitch deep in the count and they foul off unhittable balls. Willis threw 102 pitches in 5-plus innings, allowing one run on a long homerun to Chad Huffman in the 6th inning and struck out four and two walks. He pitch a solid game in cool temperatures at Huntington Park.

The hero for Clippers fans was Jerad Head, who continues to swing a hot bat, as he drove home the game-winning run with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning giving Columbus a 4-3 win over the tough Louisville Bats.

Head went 3 for 5 in the game and earned his eighth RBI of the season scoring Chad Huffman with the bases loaded in the ninth.

The Bats tied the game in the top of the ninth on a Chris Valaika sacrifice fly drove home Michael Griffin. Josh Judy blew his second save of the season, but was the winning pitcher giving him his second win of 2011.

Luke Carlin had a nice game for Columbus. He homered in the seventh to tie the game at 2-2, then doubled home the go-ahead run in the eight to put the Clippers up 3-2 briefly.

Clippers starting pitcher Alex White went seven innings, allowing two runs and striking out seven batters.


* The Bats are 3-1 this year against Columbus. Louisville was 7-14 against Columbus in 2010, 2-9 at Huntington Park. The two teams battled to the final day of the 2010 regular season for the IL West Division title.

* The Bats started the season at 4-0 on the road but are now 4-1 and that breaks the old record set in 1984.

* The Cincinnati Reds on Monday, purchased the contract of Bats outfielder Jeremy Hermida (.333 avg, 2 hrs, 9 rbis) to replace the injured Juan Francisco. To make room for Hermida on the Reds 40-man roster, RHP Jared Burton was moved from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL. IF/OF Eric Eymann was promoted from Double-A Carolina to replace Hermida on the Bats roster.

* Louisville leads the International League with a 10-4 record.


* The Clippers are 9-5 on the season, 1 game behind Louisville in the IL West Division

* From 2007-2009, Columbus was 18-40 against Louisville, but rebounded to go 14-7 in 2010. They outscored the Bats 91-90 in total runs scored in the series.

Friday night’s game between the Columbus Clippers and Toledo Mud Hens was almost rained out. The game was delayed thirty minutes before the first pitch due to a threat of rain in the Toledo, Ohio area.

The Clippers probably wished the game was rained out. Toledo rallied in the seventh inning to defeat Columbus 5-4 at Fifth Third Field.

Clippers starting pitcher Alex White pitched very well, allowing just two earned runs over six innings, but received a no decision.

Scott Sizemore ripped a two-run double off reliever Pablo Espino allowed the Mud Hens to win game number three of the season.

The Clippers trailed 2-0 after two innings, but rallied back with one in the fifth and three in the seventh to lead 4-2.

Jason Kipnis collected three hits and Cord Phelps earned two RBI’s for Columbus.

The one bright spot on the day for the Cleveland Indians was third base prospect Lonnie Chisenhall, who collected hits in his first four at bats. Overall this spring, he is batting .550 (11 for 20). The Indians say they won’t rush him to the big leagues.

As far as the game goes, the Cleveland pitching staff was tattooed by the new-look Arizona Diamondbacks, who won 16-5 with a 22 hit attack.

Fausto Carmona took the loss, allowing six runs in three innings. Corey Kluber and Alex White were no better, allowing four runs each.
