COLUMBUS, Ohio – A three-run walkoff home run in the 10th inning gave the Clippers an 11-9 win over the Indians at Huntington Park Monday night, reducing their magic number for clinching the International League West Division to one.

After the win, the Clippers led the second-place Indians by seven games with six to play, three of them in Indianapolis.

The Indians rallied from a 6-1 deficit to take a 7-6 lead into the 9th, when Matt Carson homered and tied the score, sending it to an extra inning.

In the 10th, the Indians took the lead on a two-run double by Robert Andino to center field.

Dusty Brown homered in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead to one and Jesus Aguilar hit his 18 homer of the season on a fly ball to left field, scoring Francisco Lindor and Ryan Raburn ahead of him.

Austin Adams (3-2), who pitched the 10th inning for Columbus, got the win and Josh Kinney (1-3) took loss after coming from the bullpen in the bottom of the inning.

The Clippers travel to Toledo for two games, starting Tuesday, and three at Indianapolis, with their season coming to a close with two home games against the Mud Hens.
