Game Recaps: Wednesday 6/3
June 4, 2009
Clippers down Charlotte
On an evening where four players in the Clippers line up combined of eight of their nine hits on the evening, it would be enough to beat Charolette 6-4.
Michael Brantley, Tony Graffanino, Matt LaPorta, and Andy Marte each had two hits on the night. The other hit came off the bat of Wyatt Toregas, who hit a two run homer.
Starter Ken Ray (1-1 9.00) went five innings, allowing nine hits and three runs. Vinnie Chulk pitched a perfect ninth to earn his second save of the season.
Aeros shut down in loss
Kyle Drabek blanked Akron for seven innings in his Double-A debut and three-run rallies in the fifth and eighth propelled Reading to a 6-1 win before 3,233 fans at FirstEnergy Stadium Wednesday night. The Phillies improved to 29-22 with the win, while the Aeros fell for the ninth time in 13 games and dropped to 33-18.
Drabek and fellow Texan Josh Tomlin engaged in an excellent pitcher
