The Louisville Bats took acvantage of sloppy play by the Columbus Clippers in game one of their doubleheader 4-2 and rallied to win game two, 5-4 in extra innings, Tuesday night at Louisville Slugger Field.

The Clippers got their home run bats out in the second inning as they took Bats starter Tom Cochran (1-0) deep as Jordan Brown and Luis Valbuena each hit a solo blast to right field.

Cochran fell into a groove after the second inning and scattered two hits over the next three innings to win the game in his first start of the season. Jeremy Hermida went 3-for-3 and led the Bats with a homerun and two runs scored in the first game of the night.

Corey Kluber (0-1) took the loss for the Clippers in his first start of the season.

Joe Krebs (1-0) was the winning pitcher after working two innings out of the bullpen.

Columbus had 11 hits in game two.

Clippers fall to Aeros in final exhibition game

Columbus, Ohio- In their final exhibition game, the Columbus Clippers fell to the Akron Aeros, the Indians’ Double-A farm team.  Or, perhaps they should be known as the akron aeros based on how they scored their runs.  The final score does not tell the story–when the margin reached 8-4 at the end of the 5th, the Aeros had hit only five balls out of the infield, and two of those came on a hit-and-run, another was a high chopper over third base.

The Clippers should welcome a normal game when the regular season starts April 7 in Indianapolis–this game went seven innings by design, the Clippers-Indians game was called due to snow in the third inning on March 30, and Monday’s exhibition game with the Aeros in Akron was rained out.  In the sixth inning, Akron’s Connor Graham entered the game and threw four pitches to Jordan Brown before needing medical attention.  The teams decided to call off the Clippers’ at bats for the sixth–as a result, Brown can claim some kind of record by leading off consecutive innings with no teammates batting in between.

With a strong wind blowing from right to left, the Aeros cashed in by putting the ball in play instead of up in the air.  They scratched out a run in the first as Jordan Henry beat out a slow grounder to second, went to third on Juan Diaz’ seeing-eye single up the middle, and scored on Chun Chen’s smash to third, on which Luis Valbuena made a fine play to his right and threw out Diaz at second.

The Clippers’ second baseman Jason Kipnis is making the switch from the outfield this season, and was tested right out the box by Henry’s dribbler.  Last year, Kipnis hit .307 with 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 74 RBIs in 133 games between Class A Kinston and Double-A Akron.  He would show his power in the bottom of the first after Ezequiel Carrera led off with a single up the middle.  Cord Phelps ripped a double to the right field gap and Kipnis followed with a blast in the same direction but even farther, clearing the fence in right-center for a three-run homer.

The Aeros evened it up at 3-3 with more small-ball in the third as Karexon Sanchaz walked went to third on a hit-and-run single by Donnie Webb, and came home on an error.  Webb scored on a Corey Kluber wild pitch.

The Aeros added five more in the fifth with the help of two walks, an infield hit, a wild pitch, and the chopper over third base by Kyle Bellows that drove in two runs.

Aeros’ starter Matt Packer settled down after Kipnis’ home run to get the win, giving up four runs and only one walk in five innings.  He averaged almost a strikeout per inning last year, and struck out four Clippers batters.

Kluber pitched four innings and took the loss.

The Clippers’ home opener is Saturday, April 16 at 4:05 pm.

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.
