In literature, rain can sometimes have a transformative power. One heavy shower can change a character’s attributes, and even enhance some. The Columbus Clippers (58-52) were already playing well before the rain came on Sunday evening, but they celebrated the end of the downpour by scoring six runs in the seventh inning on their way to an 11-5 victory over the Norfolk Tides (50-59).

Bryan Price is already a household name within baseball circles. Well, the name Bryan Price at least. When fans hear the name their thoughts would probably jump to the current manager of the Cincinnati Reds. But two hours to the northeast there’s another Bryan Price, one who is climbing the minor league ladder in search of the big time. The IBI's Grant Miller recently sat down to talk to the talented Tribe relief prospect...

The Columbus Clippers were on their way to extra innings against the Indianapolis Indians –– or so it seemed.

Columbus reliever Tyler Sturdevant took the loss despite giving up the single run in the game. Indians starter Brandon Cumpton finished 8 innings with no runs allowed.

The All-Star Break is a much-needed rest for all players, but it can be even more beneficial if a team ends the season’s first half with a win. On Sunday afternoon, the Columbus Clippers (53-46) did just that by beating the Indianapolis Indians (53-46) by a score of 9-5 to enter the break on a high.

In the first game of a double header, the Columbus Clippers were no-hit by the Indianapolis Indians through five innings before losing, 1-0. Columbus starter Danny Salazar pitched a gem of his own, giving up just two hits in six innings while striking out nine, but took the loss. Andy Oliver got his 11th save of the season after Nick Kingham's shutdown outing. The Clippers again lost in the second game late Thursday night.

Losing a lead is never an easy pill to swallow, but when a team comes back from doing so they show signs of real togetherness.

When a player moves up the minor league ladder, it’s safe to assume that it might take them some time to acclimatize to each level. That isn’t the case with Columbus Clippers outfielder Tyler Holt. Ever since making his Triple-A debut on May 26, Holt has been a revelation. Grant Miller recently spoke with Holt about his transition and his goals for the rest of the season.

The Columbus Clippers didn't score until the fifth inning, but made every run count on their way to a 5-4 victory against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. The Clippers totaled just six hits, but used a four-run seventh inning to seal the deal after going down, 3-0, early in the game. The RailRiders rallied in the eighth to come back within one, but ultimately fell short.

If you’re looking for someone with a contagious attitude, look no further than outfielder Carlos Moncrief. The native Mississippian has a trademark grin that shows up in the outfield and in the batter’s box, and it’s pretty easy to see why. A slow starter in the past, the arrival of June is just in time to heat up his cold bat. The IBI's Grant Miller recently sat down with the Indians top prospect about how he is adjusting to Triple-A and what he is doing to adjust to the new level.

Some days a lineup can seem like they can hit anything and everything. That feeling must not be common for the last-place Charlotte Knights (18-35), but they certainly had a night to remember as they recorded 20 hits in an 18-9 victory over the Columbus Clippers (24-28)
