Clippers lose finale at Toledo; lose division title to Louisville; playoffs next

The Columbus Clippers were hoping to gain some momentum heading into the postseason, and wrap-up the International League West Division at the same time, but the Toledo Mud Hens won their fourth straight over their Ohio rivals, Monday afternoon, 5-2.

Coupled with Louisville’s win over Indianapolis, Columbus will open the playoffs against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, the IL North champions.

Columbus couldn’t muster a hit against Toledo starter Ryan Ketchner (6-4) after Ezequiel Carrera’s home run in the third inning. Ketchner went seven innings, striking out six.

Columbus will open the postseason at 6:35 p.m. on Wednesday at Huntington Park. David Huff (8-2) is likely to get the start for the Clippers against the Yankees in game one of the best-of-five-series. The Yankees won five of the eight regular season meetings with the Clippers, but Columbus won the 1992 Governor’s Cup by defeating the Yankees, 3-2.

Scranton has won the IL North five straight years since 2006.

The Columbus Clippers earlier this past week, had a five-game winning streak to clinch a postseason spot. But the past few days, the team has sputtered towards the regular-season finish line.

The Toledo Mud Hens made it three-in-a-row over Columbus with a 9-1 blowout win Sunday at Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo.

Columbus starter Paolo Espino (3-3) struggled to get through four innings.

Offensively, Columbus was held in check by Toledo starter Thad Weber (2-1), who didn’t allow a run until Wes Hodges led off the seventh with his 15th homer of the season.

The Clippers held on to the division lead in the International League West, as Louisville lost to Indianapolis for the second straight night. A Columbus win, or a Louisville loss will clinch the division for the Clippers on Labor Day Monday.

The regular-season finale is at 1 p.m. on Labor Day, with Columbus right-hander Corey Kluber (1-0, 1.50 ERA) going up against Toledo southpaw Ryan Ketchner (5-4, 3.87 ERA.
