Clippers walk off to 4-3 win in extras
It took extra innings, but the Clippers pulled it out as they defeated the Norfolk Tides 4-3 in eleven innings. The Tides would strike first offensively in the top of the third. After a two out double by Xavier Avery, Nate McLouth sent a fly-ball out towards the right field wall. The ball sailed over Russ Canzler's head, allowing Avery to score rather easily as Norfolk staked itself to an early 1-0 lead.
