The month of June continues to be a painful one for the Clippers who are now 32-34 after another losing week which saw the team go 2-4 in two series against Toledo and Gwinnett. The starting pitching has been throwing better as of late but if Columbus expects to contend for a playoff spot, the rotation will have to delve deeper into games to prevent late-season exhaustion in the bullpen. As of now, the Clippers remain in second place in the International League West, 12.5 games behind front-runner Indianapolis (45-22).
The Mud Hens swept the two-game series in Toledo with a narrow 8-7 victory on June 6 and a 6-0 shutout the following day. Columbus split the four-game series with the Braves, winning games two and three 16-5 and 5-2 respectively. Gwinnett took both the first and last contests, 4-3 on June 8 and 9-2 three days later.

Basking in the Indians third consecutive win, a quick rebound from an absolutely horrendous stretch, the Indians peak and valley tendencies have shown their ugly head. And as with many streaks, when it rained it poured, something which we can actually see manifested statistically in BABIP.
