COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Clippers beat the Syracuse Chiefs, 5-4, on a walk-off double by Audy Ciriaco Monday, capping a home stand that saw them win seven out of eight at Huntington Park.

After blowing a one-run lead in the top half of the ninth inning, Columbus rallied with two outs to keep the game from going to extra frames.

Trailing 4-3, the Chiefs had back-to-back singles with one out in the top of the ninth to get a runner to second and Brian Goodwin tied the game on a single that got past first baseman David Cooper.

With two outs and nobody on in the home half of the ninth, Luke Carlin hit a single to right and Justin Sellers walked, setting the scene for Ciriaco who hit the game-winning double to center.

Mark Lowe (1-1) blew the save in the top of the ninth but got the win. Daniel Stange (1-2) took the loss for the Chiefs.

The Clippers hit the road for eight games in Rochester and Syracuse. The Clippers and Red Wings start their four-game set Tuesday at 7:05 p.m.
