The Columbus Clippers swept Durham when they came to Huntington Park over 10 days ago and the Bulls were trying to return the favor in North Carolina.

The Clippers had other ideas.

Jason Kipnis drew a bases-loaded walk to score Ezequiel Carrera in the top of the 10th inning and helped the Clippers to a 2-1 win over the Bulls.

The Clippers snapped a three-game losing streak.

Columbus’ Luis Valbuena went 1 for 3 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.

Durham pitcher Rob Delaney, who entered the game in the ninth, allowed four walks in 1.2 innings to suffer his first loss of the season.

Zach Putnam raised his record to 4-1 after pitching two scoreless innings.

Indy LHP Brian Burres suffered the loss and is 1-6 on the year. He pitched 6 innings, gave up 5 hits with 3 runs earned, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts.
