Clippers 9, Bats 6

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Clippers mounted a big rally in the top of the ninth to win the opener of a two-game series with the Louisville Bats 9-6 Thursday.

The win widens the Clippers’ lead in the International League West to six games with 11 to play, six of them against the second-place Indians.

Things fell apart for Bats reliever Fabio Castillo (4-2) as soon as he took the mound with Louisville leading 5-1 in the top of the ninth, the bases loaded and one out.

Francisco Lindor hit a sacrifice fly to center, scoring Giovanny Urshela. That was followed by James Ramsey’s double, which brought Justin Sellers and Dusty Brown around. Jesus Aguilar’s two-run homer to left center capped the scoring for Columbus

The series wraps up in Louisville Friday night at 7:05 before the Clippers return home to host Indianapolis for three games.
