COLUMBUS- The Columbus Clippers faced the Toledo Mudhens Tuesday night in the midst a seven-game losing streak. Thanks to an amped up offense, the streak is no more as the Clippers came out on top with a 13-9 win.
“Anytime you go through a losing streak, or a rough patch of games it’s always good to get that win and kind of get a little breath of air,” Manager Chris Tremie said.
The Clippers’ offense stole the game at Huntington Park. Center fielder Ezequiel Carrera went 4-for-5 at the plate and also stole two bases. Second baseman Cord Phelps had an equally productive game, racking up four RBIs. Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall also collected four RBIs.
“The offensive output we had tonight was really good for a lot of guys, to fill that little bit of momentum I think that’s big,” Tremie said.
The first half of the game looked promising for the Clippers who were staked to an 8-0 lead thanks to hot bats, and starting pitcher Danny Salazar had yet to allow a run.
