Clippers don't get any breaks, lose 3-1
In well-pitched games, it’s often about which team gets the breaks. On Wednesday night, the Columbus Clippers just couldn’t buy one. The Clippers (39-41) fell to the Norfolk Tides (40-41) by a final score of 3-1 Wednesday. While both pitching staffs had stellar performances, the game was also influenced by an error, a ball boy, and a very close call by the umpires.

It appeared that the Scrappers offense was poised to break out of their early season slump after showing some positive signs on Tuesday. Looks can be deceiving. The offense provided little positive to talk about on Wednesday, and despite solid pitching efforts, the Scrappers dropped their fifth game in six nights, losing 2-1 to the Williamsport Crosscutters.

Garcia (6-6) improved to 4-0 on the season against Akron.
