SCRANTON - Clippers starter TJ House was called up from Akron just in time to start the series finale against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, and his pitching combined with some timely Clippers offense led the way to a late 3-2 win.
House was pretty good for most of his first start and in six innings of work he allowed two runs on five hits, while walking one. Two of the five hits he surrendered came in the bottom of the fifth, in addition to his only walk of the ball game.
After striking out two to start out the bottom of the fifth inning, second baseman Cody Johnson hit an infield single off of House, bringing up shortstop Adam Maruszak. Maruszak smacked a double in the gap, scoring Johnson and tying the game up at 1-1.
Columbus got the lead back in the top of the sixth after right fielder Matt Carson singled and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Carson was then brought home thanks to an error by right fielder Zoilo Almonte off of a fly ball from third baseman Ryan Rohling...
