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.

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.
