Pawtucket wins suspended game 5-2; McAllister goes to 7-0 with regularly scheduled game win


Clippers celebrate win #28 of season ( file)

The Pawtucket Red Sox took control of the suspended game from Thursday from the outset and won 5-2 in nine innings.

To refresh everyone’s memory from Thursday’s game, which was delayed before the game started for 31 minutes.

When the game began, Josh Reddick homered in the first inning, his 11th of the year for a 1-0 Red Sox lead. The Clippers came right back for a 2-1 lead on homers from Jason Kipnis, his 4th and Cord Phelps, his 7th, of the back-to-back variety.

With the Clippers still leading 2-1 after 3.1 innings, the rain came again causing a delay of one hour and ten minutes and a suspension of play.

When play resumed, there were new pitchers on the mound for both teams. Clevelan Santeliz for Pawtucket and Jensen Lewis for Columbus.

The Red Sox jumped on Lewis before he could settle in on the mound. In the fifth inning, Matt Sheely tripled off the centerfield fence; Jose Iglesias, who entered the game when Daniel Nava was designated for assignment by the Red Sox, knocked home Sheely with a slow roller to second base and the game was tied 2-2.

Pawtucket was not done yet.

In the sixth inning, Lars Anderson singled with one out; Ronald Bermudez, who entered the game when the Boston Red Sox promoted Drew Sutton to the majors, doubled to deep left centerfield scoring Anderson all the way from first base and it was 3-2. With two out, Luis Exposito singled to center to score Bermudez and make the score 4-2 Pawtucket.

The Red Sox scored a final run in the ninth inning when Brent Dlugach singled; Exposito singled to left center to advance Dlugach around to third and Sheely’s fielder’s choice grounder to shortstop scored Dlugach to make it 5-2.

While Pawtucket was scoring on the Columbus bullpen, the Clippers could not solve the bullets being fired by Santeliz and Jason Rice.

Santeliz was the winner, he’s 1-0. The right-hander pitched 2.1 innings, allowed 2 hits and struck out 1. Santeliz might’ve finished the game but left due an injury to his left knee while trying to cover first base in the sixth inning. Rice got the save, his first of the season, after pitching 3.2 innings of hitless ball, walking one and five strikeouts.

Jensen Lewis was the loser and drops to 3-1 on the season. He pitched two innings, allowed four hits, three earned runs with a walk and a strikeout.

In the regularly scheduled game, Columbus came back to win 3-0.

Zach McAllister is proving he is the ace of the Clippers pitching staff, as he became the first pitcher in the International League to reach seven wins after throwing seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits and striking out seven in a complete game effort.

Josh Rodriguez, who has what the scouts say in baseball, ‘deceptive bat speed’ with pop, hit a home run into the left center field bleachers to give Columbus a 1-0 lead in the third inning.

Columbus completed the scoring in the sixth inning when Pawtucket secon baseman Tony Taylor drifted too far out into center field on a high popup by Jerad Head and dropped the ball allowing Lonnie Chisenhall and Chad Huffman to score for the final of 3-0.

By Mohamed Ibrahim (Clipart courtesy of

The Columbus Clippers have followed up their Governors’ Cup championship run by topping off the 2010 season by winning the Triple-A National Championship. Tuesday night’s contest in Oklahoma City saw the Columbus Clippers defeat the Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League, 12-6.

The win marked the second straight year that the International League has won the matchup, which features the IL champ vs. the Pacific Coast League winner. Durham won the title in 2009.

David Huff earned the win for the Clippers, pitching six innings. He gave up all six runs on seven hits and struck out six. The bullpen work of Zach Putnam, Josh Judy and Vinnie Pestano followed Huff and shut down Tacoma.

Columbus knocked out 19 hits, compared to nine for the Rainiers. Jason Kipnis and Josh Rodriguez joined Jerad Head in the three-hit club, and five other Columbus starters had two hits.

The win ends a strong postseason for the Clippers, who struggled in the final weeks of the regular season and advanced to the IL playoffs as the wild card team, then dominated Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Durham to win the franchise’s first Governors’ Cup in 14 years.

A nationally-television audience saw how good the Columbus Clippers are and they are Triple-A Champions!

Clippers gain on Louisville with 6-4 win at Indianapolis

The Columbus Clippers took a gigantic step towards the postseason on Monday night, with a three-run, sixth inning and some solid bullpen work leading them to a 6-4 win at Indianapolis.

The Clippers were trailing in the top of the sixth, when they put up three runs, highlighted by Josh Rodriguez’ go-ahead two-run bomb.

The two teams were full of extra-base hits, combining for 11 on the night.

The Clippers gained on Louisville, who lost to Toledo and now trails the Bats by just a 1/2 game in the International League’s West Division. The club’s lead in the wild card race was widened to 3.5 games with Buffalo’s loss to Syracuse.

Clippers offense wakes up and pounds Indianapolis, 10-5

The Columbus Clippers had a closed-door meeting before Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Indians at Huntington Park. After all the team was coming off a shutout loss and they have been playing inconsistently for the past three weeks. Not to mention there is a division title and or wildcard within their grasp.

That meeting with manager Mike Sarbaugh and the coaches proved to be very effective, because Columbus got their offense rolling and hammered Indy, 10-5.

The score was 3-3 going into the fifth when the Clippers to the lead back.

Luke Carlin’s bouncing ball up the middle got past Indians shortstop Pedro Ciriaco and scored both Jordan Brown and Jared Goedert. That 5-3 lead was cut in half in the top of the sixth by Indy, but the offense blew the game open with a five-run seventh, which included Goedert’s 19th home run and RBI’s from Jose Constanza and Josh Rodriguez, along with a two-run triple from Ezequiel Carrera.

The winning pitcher was newcomer Zack McAllister, he’s now 9-11. The loser was Mike Crotta, who falls to 5-9.

The win kept the Clippers in pace with the Louisville Bats, who won earlier Sunday and still holds a 1.5 game advantage in the International League West, with eight games remaining for both teams. A loss by the Buffalo Bisons in Scranton helped Columbus to a 2.5 game lead in the wild card race.
