On a night with a somber tune, the Clippers secured their second win of the series in Scranton, beating the RailRiders 4-1. The big news from the night ended up being bad news for not only the Clippers, but the Indians organization as a whole. In the bottom of the fifth Carlos Carrasco took a line drive up the middle off of his arm and left the game immediately. Carrasco was, apparently, in a great deal of pain as he made his way to the hospital. As the injury is yet to be confirmed, the fear is that Carrasco could be out for quite a while with a somewhat serious arm issue.
On a cold morning in Scranton, Pennsylvania, some late inning heroics from the Clippers propelled Columbus to their tenth win of the year, defeating Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 5-4. In his third start of the year for the Clippers, phenom Trevor Bauer continued his dominance of the International League.
After losing three out of their last four to the Toledo Mud Hens, the Columbus Clippers were able to get a big victory on Monday morning, shutting out the Mud Hens for a 3-0 victory.

In a back and forth affair, the Bowie Baysox took advantage of late inning mistakes by the Aeros, trouncing them 13-5. The Aeros made several errors and they proved costly as they fell to 5-10 on the season.
After last night’s rain out at Huntington Park, the Clippers took the field for a foggy, early morning affair against the Louisville Bats. Clearly, Joe Martinez and the rest of the Clippers were in a haze of their own, losing 8-3. Clippers’ starter Joe Martinez started out strong with a pretty easy first inning, but that was where the success stopped for the righty.
On a beautiful 70 degree night in Columbus, with the minds of the fans elsewhere in Boston, Scott Kazmir saw his first action in affiliated baseball since 2011. Carlos Carrasco lended him a four-inning hand of near-perfection, and the two "starters" led the Clippers to a 4-1 victory.
The Columbus Clippers won their third game of the season on Monday night, beating the Louisville Bats 7-2. Louisville and Columbus starters Daniel Corcino and David Huff started their evening with three innings of shutout baseball. The fourth inning was one that both of these pitchers would like to forget. The Clippers and Bats finally came alive offensively, combining for seven runs.
After a low-scoring outing in their 2013 debut, the Clippers’ bats came alive in Indianapolis in game two of their series against the Indianapolis Indians.
