Clippers move 1 1/2 games ahead of Louisville with 1-0 win

The Columbus Clippers are slowly building a lead again in the IL West race over the hard-charging Louisville Bats.

Behind Paolo Espino’s pitching Saturday night, Columbus shut down the powerful Bats, 1-0 before 9,412 fans at Huntington Park. the game was quick, 2 hours, 12 minutes.

Espino was called up from Double-A Akron on August 3 to fill out the Clippers pitching rotation that had been depleted by so many callups by the Cleveland Indians. Espino, now 1-0 pitched seven shutout innings in his third Triple-A start. Paolo was pitching all night to his cousin, Damaso Espino, the Clippers catcher. The two had worked together this season in Akron.

Columbus scored the only run of the game in the fourth against losing pitcher Matt Maloney (10-6) when former Bat Drew Sutton led off with a double. Wes Hodges sacrificed him to third and Matt McBride followed with a sacrifice fly.

The lead stood up as the bullpen followed Paolo Espino to the mound. Bryce Stowell retired the side in order in the eighth and Vinnie Pestano did the same in the ninth for his 11th save.

Clippers split twinbill with Syracuse Chiefs

The Clippers split Tuesday night’s doubleheader in Syracuse, losing the first game, 1-0, a make-up from Monday’s rainout and won the nightcap, 6-3. The win snapped a five-game losing streak and an eight-game road losing streak for Columbus.

In game one, Leonard Davis of Syracuse hit a solo homer in the third inning and that accounted for all of the scoring. Yohan Pino was solid on the mound for the Clippers. He overcame a dizzy spell in the second inning and scattered three hits and a walk while striking out four in the complete-game, six-inning effort.

Bryce Stowell wins game two (MiLB)

Five pitchers combined for the seven-inning, four-hit shutout for Syracuse. Only twice in the game did the Clippers get a runner into scoring position.

The offense woke up in game two. The Clippers got on the board twice in the second inning and three more times in the third to erase an early deficit. Jerad Head homered in the second, two batters later Jose Constanza had an RBI-triple.

The Clippers bullpen shut down the Chiefs with scoreless innings from Bryce Stowell, Jess Todd, Josh Judy and Vinnie Pestano. Stowell picked up the win, his first in Triple-A, while Pestano earned his 10th save of the season.
