COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Clippers earned a split of a doubleheader with the Tides on a sloppy day in Norfolk Tuesday.

Columbus won the first game, 3-0, but dropped the second game, 7-4.

Frank Herrmann (1-0) was the winner in game one, recording a pair of outs in relief to end the 6th, stranding a pair of runners. Brad Brach (2-1), older brother of Clippers’ reliever Brett, took the loss allowing all three Columbus runs on four hits in the seventh. Mark Lowe walked a batter, but got his fifth save.

Kelvin De La Cruz (1-0) was the winner of game two, pitching a perfect sixth in relief. Vinnie Pestano (0-2) took the loss, allowed all of the runs in the Tides’ five-run 6th inning.

The Clippers are off Wednesday and play four games against the Durham Bulls to end the road trip before returning to Huntington Park Monday night.
