MLB Legends hold on to beat Tim Wisecup’s team, 12-11 in Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams Game

The inaugural Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams Game took place Saturday night in Columbus, Ohio’s Huntington Park, home of the International League’s Clippers.

The MLB Legends won 12-11 over The Wisecup Team.

Highlights of the game included leadoff batter Rickey Henderson gettingĀ  a single on the game’s fourth pitch. Eventhough, stealing wasn’t allowed, the MLB’s all-time basestealer stole second and third before Frank Thomas, living up to his nickname, put the “Big Hurt” on a pitch and hit a towering homer to left-center.

The goal of the MLB Legends was to entertain, allow Tim Wisecup’s team to enjoy themselves and not get hurt.

Pepsi MAX and Major League Baseball initiated the “dream baseball experience” on the contest winner’s home town field. It pits former pro baseball players against non-professional local baseball players.

In 2011, all baseball fans across the country voted to decide which of four regional finalists would have the opportunity to take the field with the best from MLB.

Tim Wisecup, from the Columbus suburb of Hilliard, Ohio won the votes of baseball fans throughout the country and was chosen as the winner of the Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams contest.

Mike Sarbaugh has become a very successful manager at Triple-A Columbus.

He has led the Clippers to back-to-back International League titles and back-to-back Triple-A National championships.

There’s a chance the dominant Clippers can pull a three-peat. So with that in mind, the Cleveland Indians have decided to keep Sarbaugh as the Clippers manager.

The Indians also announced that Ruben Niebla will return for his second season as the Clippers’ pitching coach.

There is one change on the Columbus field staff, Lee May, Jr. has been replaced as the hitting coach with Phil Clark, who is in his sixth season with the Indians organization. Clark also filled that role with Class A Kinston last season.

Justin Germano, who can fill in any need on a pitching staff, short relief, long relief, closer or spot-starter, was used in the latter role on Wednesday night in Louisville.

Germano took a perfect game into the sixth inning in a solid start but Columbus still lost the the Bats, 3-2.

The Clippers entered the ninth inning up 2-0, but the Bats loaded the bases with nobody out. Jeremy Hermida’s 2-run double tied the game and Todd Frazier’s sacrifice fly brought home Devin Mesoraco to win the game.

The Clippers won the first two games in the five-game set, but the Bats won the last three games and trail Columbus in the IL West by 9.5 games.

Germano went six innings, striking out seven in a spot-start after Zach McAllister was called-up to Cleveland to start Thursday’s game against Toronto. Germano’s no-hit bid was ended after Todd Frazier’s bunt single. Zach Putnam pitched the ninth and was the losing pitcher.

Clippers third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall has had an up-and-down season in Triple-A.

But he is starting to see things come around for himself.

After missing nine games due to the effects of a concussion, which he suffered in Buffalo on June 11 resulting in his being placed on the disabled list, Chisenhall returned to the lineup in Toledo and made Fifth Third Field his own yard on Wednesday night.

Chisenhall had two singles, a triple, a home run and six RBI’s to lead Columbus to a 13-7 whacking of the Toledo Mud Hens.

He had the key blow in the eighth inning to snap a 7-7 tie by cracking a three-run homer to right-center on the first pitch he saw from hard-throwing Matt Hoffman to put the Clippers up for good at 10-7.

The International League has named Columbus pitcher David Huff as the pitcher of the Week.

Huff is the third Columbus player to be honored in 2011 joining Chad Huffman, April 18-24 and Jeanmar Gomez, June 6-12.

The left-handed Huff won twice during the week with a couple of 7-innings gems, leading the league with 14 strikeouts. 10 of those 14 K’s came Monday night at Buffalo as Huff shut down the Bisons hitting to just one run on four hits and no walks. The Clippers won going away, 8-2.

Huff pitched again on Sunday afternoon at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Once again, he shut down a good-hitting team scattering four hits over 7 innings without walking a batter, no runs and the Clippers won 2-0. The win was Huff’s sixth of the season, which is tied for 3rd in the IL.

The 25-year-old Huff is a former first round draft choice of the Cleveland Indians. Huff has 38 starts in the majors with the Indians since 2009. Huff is a California native, hailing from San Diego.

For the 2011 season, Huff in 12 games, all starts, he is 6-2 with a 3.64 ERA in 71.2 innings pitched, 76 hits allowed, 35 runs, 24 earned, 19 walks and 41 strikeouts.
