Clippers Roll Past Mud Hens 16-2
July 27, 2012
After their season-high six-game winning streak came to an end last night, the Clippers started a new one Thursday night.
Columbus rolled past Toledo, 16-2, following a split double header last night in which the Clippers lost game one before tallying an 11-10 walk-off win in game two. The Clippers had 16 hits, 7 of which were extra-base hits.
While Columbus thrived at the plate, starter Chris Seddon had little trouble putting away Toledo's hitters. The left-hander allowed only two-earned runs in six innings of work as he won his 11th game of the year.
The Clippers got out in front early with what was perhaps their best offensive inning of the season.
In the bottom of the second frame, Columbus scored seven runs. The first five Clippers that stepped to the plate reached base safely. Catcher Luke Carlin was the first batter to be sent back to the dugout after a sacrifice fly. The inning ended with seven Clippers recording hits, two of which were extra-base knocks.
Columbus continued to pour on the runs, scoring three runs over their next two at-bats before Toledo got on the scoreboard.
After Toledo plated two runs in the fifth, Columbus put the game well without of reach. The Clippers scored six runs over their next two at-bats.
Tim Fedroff and Russ Canzler each went deep in the sixth, with Jared Goedert doubling in the seventh.
