COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Bats rallied for three runs in the fourth inning to beat the Clippers 4-1 Monday night.

The loss made it a two-game sweep of the Clippers in Louisville.

Travis Banwart (3-2) allowed all three runs on four hits, but walked five to take the loss. Jair Jurrjens (1-0) got a win in his first start of 2014 after signing a minor league deal with the Reds on May 20.

Clippers manager Chris Tremie was tossed by first base umpire Nick Lentz in the bottom of the fifth inning for arguing that the Bats’ Chris Nelson was out on a close play.

The Clippers head to Georgia to begin the southern swing of a 10-game road trip with a four-game series against the Gwinnett Braves. Game one begins at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday.
