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.
