IL FINALS, GAME 2: Clippers shutout Durham, lead series 2-0

The Columbus Clippers have won both games at home to start the Governor’s Cup Finals. Now they head out on the road to Durham, North Carolina with a chance to win their first IL championship since 1996, after shutting out the Bulls, 4-0 Wednesday in the final game at Huntington Park for 2010.

Cord Phelps got the scoring going in the first inning with a two-out solo blast off the scoreboard in right-center field.

In the fourth inning, the homer barrage continued for Columbus as Jared Goedert and Jerad Head, went back-to-back off of Durham’s starting pitcher, Aneury Rodriguez (0-1). It was the second postseason home run for both players.

Clippers starting pitcher Zach McAllister (1-0), pitched seven scoreless innings allowing six hits, striking out five while walking none.

The bullpen work of Zack Putnam in the eighth and Vinnie Pestano in the ninth inning preserved the shutout. It was the 10th shutout of the year for Columbus pitching and the second in the IL playoffs.

Game 3 is Thursday night in Durham, game time is 7:05 p.m. Yohan Pino will throw for Columbus and Alex Cobb gets the ball for the Bulls.

Clippers win games 3 & 4 to move into Governors’ Cup Finals


Yohan Pino gave up a lead-off single Friday night and then walked the next batter he faced. That would be all of the offense that Scranton could muster for the game.

Pino teammed with Zach Putnam and Vinnie Pestano on a one-hitter and the Clippers regained the series lead with 1-0 win in Moosic, Pennsylvania.

The game was scoreless into the seventh, when Columbus had not one, but two men thrown out at the plate on consecutive singles. In the eighth, they finally broke through. Luke Carlin doubled with one out, and with two down in the inning, he came all the way around to score on Jose Constanza’s infield single.

The Clippers went up 2-1 in the series.


The Columbus Clippers have advanced to the Governors’ Cup final for the first time since 1997, with a series-clinching 11-5 victory over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees on Saturday afternoon. Columbus last won the International League title in 1996.

MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Clippers lose, Dragons win


A four-run fifth inning did in the Clippers in a Saturday night game in the Glass City of Toledo. However, that loss did not hurt the Clippers because they held onto the IL West Division lead, as Louisville lost in Indianapolis. The Mud Hens held off a late rally to win the game, 6-4.

The big fifth inning from the Mud Hens turned a one-run deficit into a five-run gap. The victim was Columbus starting pitcher Yohan Pino (10-9) who would get out of the inning, but his night on the mound ended there, with five earned runs scoring on 11 hits.

Columbus hit into a league-high 145th double play of 2010.

With two games left in the regular season, Columbus leads Louisville by a half-game. The winner of that race will host Durham in the Governor’s Cup playoffs on Wednesday, while the loser will have to settle for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Alex Oliveras connected on a tie-breaking homer in the eighth inning and Josh Garton added a two-run double later inthe frame to lift the Dayton Dragons to a 7-5 win over the South Bend Silver Hawks before a crowd of 8, 629 at Fifth Third Field on Saturday night.

Dayton reliever Josh Smith (1-1) retired all four batters he faced to earn the win. Blaine Howell pitched the ninth for his fifth save in five opportunities.
