Game Recaps: Wednesday 8/12
August 13, 2009
Matt LaPorta's solo blast in the second inning provided the only bright spot for the struggling Columbus offense.
Virgil Vasquez went seven innings, allowing only three hits to Clippers batters. The Clippers reached third base only once following LaPorta's 15th homer of the season. Juan Mateo and Jean Machi each tossed a scoreless inning of relief for Indy.
Ryan Edell pitched well enough to win, allowing just two runs on seven hits over five innings, but fell to 0-4 due to non-support. Frank Herrmann was dominant over two frames, striking out four batters and Rich Rundles authored a perfect eighth for the Clippers.
