The Columbus Clippers only needed one inning Saturday night to extend their current winning streak to five games, winning game two of a four-game series against the Gwinnett Braves, 8-2. There were 10,000 delightful fans at Huntington Park.

After falling behind 1-0, the Clippers responded with a seven-run opening inning. The big frame featured two-run singles from both Jordan Brown and Wes Hodges, an RBI double from Cord Phelps and a two run double from Michael Brantley (his second hit of the inning).

The Clippers added another run in the third inning, when Lou Marson hit his second home run as a Clipper in 2010 on his 24th birthday.

Carlton Smith and Jess Todd pitched three innings of scoreless relief for the Clippers.

The game was briefly delayed in the bottom of the eighth inning because of lightning in the area.

The Clippers had a much-needed off day.


It took almost three and a half hours, but the Columbus Clippers defeated the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, 3-2 in 11 innings. Nick Weglarz saved the game in the top of the 11th inning by throwing out Andy Tracy from left field at home plate, and then delivered a two out game-winning RBI single in the bottom half to give Columbus the win.

Weglarz had struggled at the plate since coming to Columbus, going one for his first 18 at bats, but his game-winning hit was the Clippers fifth final at-bat win of the season. Columbus is now 3-1 in extra inning games this season. Jess Todd earned the win for Columbus, he’s 2-2.


The Clippers brought their bats out to begin the Memorial Day weekend and found their game, defeating Lehigh Valley, 11-7. The Clippers used timely two-out hitting and Jordan Brown’s leadership to take game two of the four-game series.

Columbus’ scoring outburst turned out to be the fourth time this season Columbus had scored 10 or more runs. They had balanced offensive production from top to the bottom of the lineup. Jordan Brown drove in five runs for Columbus to lead the way followed by Brian Buscher, Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley each driving in two. Carlos Santana and Michael Brantley had two hits, and Brian Bixler collected three hits. Seven of the nine batters recorded a base hit on the night, as the team compiled 14 hits.

Jess Todd finished the Yankees off with two innings of no runs scored.

Shelley Duncan Clippers (MiLB)

The Columbus Clippers received a nice pitching performance from starter Yohan Pino. He went six strong innings and the bullpen was strong again in a 6-3 win over the Syracuse Chiefs in Columbus.

Columbus started off quick with some early offense as Shelley Duncan and Brian Buscher each hit RBI singles in the 1st inning for a 2-0 lead that would be expanded upon in the 2nd inning. Jason Donald tripled home a pair of runs and then scored on a Carlos Santana double for a 5-0 lead that the Chiefs would never seriously threatened.

Frank Hermann threw two perfect innings of relief to lower his season ERA to 0.75. Jess Todd pitched a scoreless 9th for his 2nd save of the year.
