The Durham Bulls got two-run hits in both the sixth and seventh innings Thursday night, erasing a 2-0 deficit and winning a 4-2 verdict over the Columbus Clippers to earn a split of their four-game series.

Columbus received solo home runs from Nick Weglarz in the second inning and Wes Hodges in the fourth, but only generated three other hits against Durham starting pitcher Heath Phillips (8-6). R.J. Swindle pitched the final inning-and-a-third to earn the save.

The Clippers got a six inning, 10 strikeout performance from All-Star Josh Tomlin, who gave up two runs on five hits. Shane Lindsay made his debut for Columbus, picking up the loss in two innings of work.

Columbus returns home Friday for a doubleheader of sorts. They’ll finish a suspended game with Pawtucket from June before a regularly scheduled game. The suspended game will resume at 5:35 p.m. in the top of the sixth inning, with the Clippers holding a one-run lead.

Clippers take advantage of walks by Durham; win 8-3

The Clippers hitters stood at the plate and waited for “BALL FOUR” being called by the home plate umpire all night in beating the Durham Bulls in Durham, North Carolina.

Bulls pitching issued 12 walks on the night and the Clippers added some timely hitting and a big inning to boost them to an 8-3 win.

Clippers' Nick Weglarz (MiLB)

Nick Weglarz got the scoring started with a solo home run in the second inning, but the lead was only momentarily as Durham scored one in the second inning and then two more in the third on a Justin Ruggiano home run.

The Clippers knocked out Durham starter Jeremy Hellickson (11-3) in the fourth, after he walked the bases loaded and allowed two runs to score before departing with just one out in the inning. Reliever Dale Thayer didn’t pitch much better, allowing a Jordan Brown bases-clearing double and issuing two more walks before the five-run inning finally ended.

From that point forward, Columbus starter Yohan Pino settled down, retiring the final eight batters he faced to pick up a quality start and improve to 8-5 on the season.

The Clippers scored the game’s lone run in the second inning as Wes Hodges singled and advanced to second on a Nick Weglarz ground out. Cord Phelps’ single moved Hodges to third and he scored when Lou Marson hit into a fielder’s choice grounder.

Vinnie Pestano earned his seventh save for Columbus.

Clippers beat Louisville Bats in 10 innings, 7-5

compiled from staff, wire and Columbus Clippers news

The Columbus Clippers newest player or should we say, returning player, Wyatt Toregas belted a two-run homer in the 10th inning Sunday night to carry the Columbus Clippers to a 7-5 win in Louisville.

Toregas is no stranger to the Clippers or their fans. He was the number-1 catcher in 2009 and earned a call to the major leagues with Cleveland Indians in August.

But with the Indians having catchers in the organization: Carlos Santana, Lou Marson and Chris Gimenez, Toregas got lost in the shuffle.

He had to work his way through Double-A Akron, Mahoning Valley and spent a month in Goodyear, Arizona to work on his conditioning.

The Clippers trailed 5-3 through the first seven innings. Toregas delievered a two-out RBI single in the eighth.

Cord Phelps opened the ninth with a 435-foot home run that put the game into extra innings.

Nick Weglarz, who had homered earlier in the game, led off the 10th with a single and then Toregas bombed a 421-foot homer for the game-winner.

Jess Todd (3-2) got the win and Vinnie Pestano notched his eighth save.

Columbus has reached the Triple-A All-Star break with a 55-36 record. The team has 31 come-from-behind victories.

Louisville Bats defeat Columbus Clippers, 4-2

The Bats topped the Clippers, Saturday night at Slugger Field, 4-2. Louisville used timely hitting and good pitching to hold off Columbus. The IL West leaders left 13 men on base in the defeat.

Louisville got going quickly in the first inning when Juan Francisco drove home Zack Cozart on an RBI-single to center field off of Carlos Carrasco.

Wladimir Balentien had 2 RBI's for Bats (MiLB)

Columbus would comeback to tie the game up in the fourth inning as Nick Weglarz singled home Luis Valbuena. Valbuena reached base in all five plate appearances, as he recorded three hits and was also walked twice.

Todd Frazier scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Wladimir Balentien in the bottom half of the fourth inning to give the Bats a 2-1 advantage. Louisville would add another run in the fifth inning when Frazier singled home Cozart and Balentien concluded the scoring with a solo homer in the eighth.

Clippers DH/3B Wes Hodges hit his eighth homer of the season, a solo shot to straightaway center field in the sixth.
