The Cleveland Indians lost more than a game to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, 8-3. They also lost the talented Grady Sizemore again, to the diasbled list.

Sizemore left the game in the first inning with a bruised right knee. The same knee that put him on the DL back in May.

The Indians hitters could do nothing batting against rookie right-hander Mitch Atkins. They scored three runs in the first inning and received home runs from Travis Hafner and Carlos Santana.

Cleveland left 11 runners overall and went 2 for 8 with runners in scoring position.

Jeanmar Gomez, who was recalled from Columbus before the game, had trouble keeping the Orioles in the ballpark.

The game also marked the major league debut for Matt Angle, the Whitehall High School and the Ohio State product. He batted lead-off for the Orioles, played left field and went 0 for 3 with a walk.

Clippers roll past Tides 11-0 with 18-hit attack, shutout pitching wins Norfolk series


International League Umpires converse before game (

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The 18-hit attack featuring three homers and a combined four hit shutout pitching performance from Jeanmar Gomez and Carlton Smith carried Columbus to an easy 11-0 win over the Norfolk Tides as the Clippers closed out the four game series, winning three games.

Jared Goedert, recently called up from Akron and hitting .400, homered in the second inning to left field to open the scoring at 2-0 in favor of the Clippers. Goedert had three hits in five at bats and also started an unusual 5-6-4-3 double play late in the game as Columbus cruised to its 400th victory of the year.

Columbus increased its lead to 4-0 after five innings. In the fifth, Nick Weglarz and Michael Brantley had RBI hits. Brantley, hitting in his usual leadoff role, had three hits for the game.

Righthander Jeanmar Gomez, who is now 4-7 on the season, pitched seven innings, gave up only three hits and no walks and fanned six Tides hitters. Carlton Smith pitched the final two innings in closing out Norfolk.

Catcher Chris Gimenez was impressed with Gomez, “He had great command, repeated his delivery and was very aggressive. Those are the keys to having success. Sometimes a young pitcher will be nervous and allow things to undo him on the mound. Not Jeanmar. He also had a pretty good slider throughout the day.”

Columbus completed its scoring with two runs in the seventh and five more tallies in the eighth. A two-run homer by Columbus second baseman Josh Rodriguez off Cla Meredith pushed the lead to 6-0 and in the eighth, sparked by Chris Gimenez’s three run shot into the left field seats, Columbus made the final margin 11-0.

Carlton Smith (MiLB)

Columbus 40-27 to this point in the season, will open a road trip Thursday June 17th to Pawtucket and Rochester. The Clippers will return home Friday June 25th against the Gwinnett Braves.

Monday night's starting lineups (

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Monday night was “614 Magazine Night” at Huntington Park. Plus, there were several fans in attendance to see Matt Angle, a native of Whitehall and a former Ohio State Buckeye baseball star whose has risen rather quickly in the Orioles system. Angle was drafted in 2007.

Clippers fans ended up disappointed and the Angle fans were happy as Matt played a solid game going 1 for 4 with a walk in the leadoff spot for Norfolk. And he came up with the defensive play of the game on Clippers third baseman Jared Goedert, who has shown a display of power-hitting since being promoted Double-A Akron.

The Clippers were down 3-2 when Goedert drove the baseball toward the wall in deep center.

Matt Angle, playing centerfield for Norfolk, robbed Goedert of a possible two-run double  with a sensational catch up against the center-field wall in the fourth inning. That play seemed to take the wind out of the sails for the Clippers.

The Clippers not only had to worry about the Norfolk defense, but the Tides received a solid pitching performance from starting pitcher Armando Gabino(4-0) en route to a 6-3 win over Columbus before a crowd of 9,059.

The Clippers offense, one of the better ones in the International League, went 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position. The usual clutch hitting was not available last night.

Losing pitcher for Columbus was Carlos Carrasco (5-3). Carrasco put up another quality start but had trouble getting Norfolk Tides third baseman Josh Bell out. Bell homered, doubled and drove in two runs to lead his club.

* Norfolk is the Triple-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. And more than a few fans at Huntington Park made the comment that the tides have better talent than the parent team and some those players should be in the majors.

* Norfolk is 29-37, 11.5 games behind Durham in the IL South. They’re 11-20 on the road, and 5-5 in the last 10 games.

* Norfolk usually gives the Clippers fits. In 2009, the Tides were 7-1 against Columbus.

* Tides reliever Ross Wolf has lowered his ERA to 2.17 for the season. Wolf has not allowed a run in any of his seven appearances in June, as he’s allowed just two hits and two walks while striking out four in 8.2 innings over that stretch. 18 of his 24 games this season have been scoreless.

* Columbus manager Mike Sarbaugh is just six games away from his 500th win (494-347 .587 all-time in the regular season).

* The Clippers are 39-27 and lead the IL West by  1.5 games over Toledo who is 37-28.
