COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Clippers scored a season high number of runs, highlighted by a four-run 6th inning, when they sent nine batters to the plate, on the way to an 11-1 win over Gwinnett in the opening game of a four-game series at Huntington Park.
Trevor Bauer pitched 6-2/3 innings and allowed the Braves’ only run on six hits and got the win.
Daniel Rodriguez, who only lasted five innings and allowed five runs, took the loss.
Luis Vasquez came on in relief and a poor performance started the big 6th inning. After he walked the bases loaded, Nyjer Morgan doubled off the right field wall to score two runs and Vasquez walked Jesus Aguilar to reload the bases. Atahualpa Severino came on and gave up a two-run double to Bryan LaHair.
The Clippers have three more with Gwinnett to end an eight-game home stand. Wednesday night’s game starts at 6:35 p.m.
