Louisville- With their offense in overdrive and starting pitching on point the Clippers took the win from the Louisville Bats on Saturday. After three quiet innings Columbus took the lead and kept it for the rest of the night, only giving up a single run to Louisville and winning 8-1.
The Clippers were the first to strike early in the fourth. Jeremy Hermida led off the inning drawing a walk from Louisville starter Daniel Corcino. With one out second baseman Juan Diaz sent a ball high into right field for a double, moving Hermida to third. Ryan Rohlinger came up to the plate grounding out, but allowed Hermida to score. Diaz took advantage of a wild pitch to score Columbus’ second run of the inning.
It wasn’t until the sixth inning that the Bats were able to make a move on Columbus starter TJ House. House gave up two singles before a sacrifice fly scored Louisville’s only run of the game.
