Pre-Season Clippers: Grady Sizemore Has a Promising Showing; Clippers edge OSU, 4-3

4/05/11 -Columbus, Ohio- Coming off a championship year, thus far the Clippers have shown potential for what may be another good run at the championship as they went on to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes in a 7-inning exhibition game by a final count of 4-3. A game that started off slow eventually took off and included an out-of-the park shot by Luke Carlin 12 (who was playing for the Bucks). Fans enjoyed cheap $5 admission and brisk but bearable weather. The OSU left fielder David Corna was shaky at times, but the wind certainly played a factor in that. The game had one double-play (shown below) that got most of the fans on their feet. There is a lot to be excited about especially after the solid play from Carlin, Wes Hodges, and Luis Valbuena.  One thing that made the game especially interesting to one personal viewer (ME) was the play of #41 Grady Sizemore in blue..

After starting the game with a ground out that went from second to first (base) CF Grady Sizemore went on to have a not great, but solid 7-innings. He was responsible for one run scored and stole a base and finished the night 2-4 at the plate.

Coming off of a knee injury, Sizemore demonstrated he is in the right track in terms of gaining back strength and getting the reps needed before he suits up for the Cleveland Indians.

“We need to get in the flow of the season”
“It was a good team effort”
-Manager Mike Sarbaugh

With one more exhibition game against Akron the team heads into regular season play with their first game Thursday at Indianapolis. The Clippers do not return to home until the 16th with a game against Toledo. They then could have great success but will be tested as they have 10-game home stretch followed by 5 away to round out the month of April.

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.

GAME NOTES

* 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.

* Tides outfielder Matt Angle was selected by the Orioles in the 7th round of the 2007 draft out of Ohio State University. Angle led the 2007 Buckeyes with a .366 average, 53 runs, 27 walks, 22 stolen bases and four triples in 59 games, and was a First-Team and Second-team All-Mideast Region pick as a sophomore (2006) and a Third Team All-Big Ten pick as a junior (2007).

* 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.

Baseball Buckeyes Come From Behind to beat South Florida, 4-2

Alex Wimmers (OSU)

compiled from reports from Ohio State

The Ohio State baseball Buckeyes in St. Petersburg, Fla., with Palm trees everywhere and playing at Al Lang Field at Progress Energy Park, had to staged a comeback to push their record to 4-0 in the young season. The game was delayed 50 minutes after the previous game between Penn State and Cincinnati went into extra innings.

Number 13 Ohio State picked up a 4-2 victory over South Florida behind a strong performance by ace Alex Wimmers went eight innings, giving up five hits, one earned run and punching out six. Ryan Dew led the offensive attack, going 3 for 4 with two runs scored, one being the go-ahead run.

A number of fine defensive plays by the Buckeyes in the game saved the day. Two highlights were a diving snag of  a sinking liner in the second inning by Brian DeLucia. Cory Kovanda might have topped that in the fourth inning when he ranged far to his left in shallow right field, made the diving stop and threw to first to get the runner.

The game was the fastest of the first four games, lasting  just two hours and nine minutes.

The Buckeyes will get back to action on Saturday when they play Notre Dame at Bright House Field in Clearwater, Fla. First pitch is set for 4 p.m. Collegebaseball360.com will webcast the game at http://collegebaseball360.com/live-college-baseball-coverage/.
