Grand slam by Mills gives Clippers 80th win, 7-6 over Red Sox

The Columbus Clippers, clearly the best team in the IL this season, now has 80 wins on the season thanks to one of their newer and younger players.

Beau Mills belted a grand slam with two outs in the top of the eighth inning to lead the team to a 7-5 win over the Pawtucket Red Sox in Rhode Island on Thursday night.

Columbus trailed 4-3 but were able to put two runners on second and third with no outs against Red Sox reliever Scott Atchison (6-2) in the eighth.

With one out, Travis Buck was walked intentionally.

After a strikeout for the second out of the eighth, Mills, who was having a bad road trip at 1-for-10, hit a 1-1 pitch over the wall in right field. It was his third homer since being called up from Double-A Akron on July 22.

Columbus starting pitcher Zach McAllister (10-3) allowed four runs, all in the second inning, and seven hits, with five strikeouts in seven innings. He became the third IL pitcher to reach 10 wins this season.

Josh Judy pitched a scoreless ninth for his 21st save.

Indians get Fukudome in trade with Cubs

The Cleveland Indians have been looking for help for their short-handed outfield since the injury bug hit Grady Sizemore and Shin-Soo Choo.

They have accomplished that task with the acquisition of Chicago Cubs right-fielder Kosuke Fukodome.

In exchange for the left-handed hitting outfielder, the Indians sent Class A Kinston outfielder Abner Abreau and Triple-A Columbus bullpen specialist Carlton Smith, a righty, to the Cubs. The Cubs agreed to pay the bulk of Fukudome’s 2011 salary of $4.7 million.

Fukudome, 34, is making $13.5 million this year, his last of a four-year deal with Chicago. He had a very limited no-trade clause, which listed Cleveland, but he waived it to approve the deal.

He is hitting .273 with 3 homers, 15 doubles, 13 RBI’s, a .375 on-base percentage, which ranked 14th in the National League. He has played in 87 games.

To make room for Fukudome on the 40-man roster, Travis Buck is the odd-man out. Buck has been designated for assignment which means the Indians have 10 days to trade him, release him or if he clears waivers, back to the minors.

Travis Buck is the odd-man out again when a roster spot needs to be cleared.

The Cleveland Indians optioned Travis Buck back to Triple-A Columbus before embarking on a nine-game interleague road trip to three National League cities.

In two stints with the Indians, Buck has hit .228 with two homers and nine RBI’s in 32 games. He doubled in Wednesday night’s 4-3 win over Colorado.

There is talk that Shelley Duncan will be recalled from Columbus before the team starts its road trip at San Francisco. The Indians will need Duncan’s bat off the bench because there is no designated hitter in National League ballparks. Duncan is the Tribe’s best pinch-hitter with a .222 average, two homers and 17 RBI’s.

If anyone knows how to get up and down Interstate 71 North to Cleveland and South to Columbus, it’s Travis Buck. He has been up and down several times this year, most recently on Friday to make room for Travis Hafner to come off the disabled list.

On Saturday, he was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to replace Matt LaPorta who will be on the diasbled list for two to three weeks with a sprain of his right ankle.

LaPorta was having a nice season hitting .242 with eight homers and 32 RBI’s in 59 games before his injury.
