Friday night’s game between the Columbus Clippers and Toledo Mud Hens was almost rained out. The game was delayed thirty minutes before the first pitch due to a threat of rain in the Toledo, Ohio area.

The Clippers probably wished the game was rained out. Toledo rallied in the seventh inning to defeat Columbus 5-4 at Fifth Third Field.

Clippers starting pitcher Alex White pitched very well, allowing just two earned runs over six innings, but received a no decision.

Scott Sizemore ripped a two-run double off reliever Pablo Espino allowed the Mud Hens to win game number three of the season.

The Clippers trailed 2-0 after two innings, but rallied back with one in the fifth and three in the seventh to lead 4-2.

Jason Kipnis collected three hits and Cord Phelps earned two RBI’s for Columbus.

Columbus sputtering into playoffs; lose again; can win IL West Labor Day


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.

The Mud Hens hit for the cycle as a team in the first inning, with a five-hit, five-run frame highlighted by a lead-off home run from Scott Sizemore and a three-run double from Andy Bouchie.

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.

Minor league baseball: Clippers end losing streak; Dragons win third in a row


When a team is in a losing streak, you take a win anyway you can get it. For the Clippers on Monday night, that meant a walk-off win in which the baseball never left the infield in the ninth inning. Matt McBride’s infield single to shortstop earned Columbus a .500 record for their 10-game homestand, as they beat arch-rival Toledo.

Just like Carlos Carrasco on Sunday, David Huff coasted into the sixth inning. And just like Carrasco, Huff found himself in trouble in a hurry, giving up hits to the first three batters of the inning. Scott Sizemore’s single scored Justin Henry, and then Cale Iorg scored on a double-play grounder, which tied the score at two.

Josh Judy (3-0) earned the win in relief for Columbus. The victory allowed the Clippers to keep pace with the Louisville Bats, who got a come-from-behind win over Indianapolis, and maintain a half-game lead in the International League’s West Division.

Dayton starting pitcher Clayton Shunick and three relievers combined to scatter seven hits while allowing  just one run as the Dragons won their third straight, defeating the Lake County Captains 3-1. The Dragons will go for a sweep of the the four-game series on Tuesday night. The game was played in two hours, two minutes, making it the shortest nine inning game of the season for the Dragons.

Toledo MudHens show homer power against Pino and Clippers; win 6-4

compiled from staff, wire and Columbus Clippers news

Wednesday night’s game came down to whether or not Clippers starter Yohan Pino would be able to keep the power bats of Jeff Frazier and Jeff Larish in the ballpark.

Pino was unsuccessful as Toledo rode three home runs to hold off the Clippers, 6-4. The win allowed the MudHens to go 2-3 in the two-city, five-game series.

Pino (7-5) has had location problems the past five starts and his ERA of 10.12 in those games reflect a difference in a pitcher who in the first 2 months was the best pitcher on the staff.

Toledo opened the scoring with two outs in the first inning as Jeff Frazier opened the long ball barrage with a three-run homer to the left-field bleachers.

The MudHens kept the power going in the third inning, with a two-out homer from Jeff Larish hit the ball onto the roof of the Wendy’s Home Run balcony in right-field to up the lead to 5-0.

Scott Sizemore hit the third homer off Pino in the fifth inning to make it 6-1.

The Clippers cracked a couple of homers of their own. In the sixth inning, Luis Valbuena hit a two-run blast to right-field. Then, third baseman Jared Goedert blasted a pitch past the bleachers in left field for his 13th homer in 29 Triple-A games since being promoted from Double-A Akron.

Another Clipper who has seen improvement in his game has been Luis Valbuena. Since his demotion from Cleveland on June 26, he is batting .302 with three home runs and 10 RBIS and has shown power that he didn’t show with the Indians.
