COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Clippers and Lehigh Valley IronPigs rewarded the fans who stayed until the end of their Wednesday night game at Huntington Park, with Columbus getting the 6-5 win, thanks to a two-run error in the bottom of the 10th inning.

The score remained tied at 4-4 for five innings before former Clipper Russ Canzler the deadlock with a mammoth 400-foot homer to center field.

The Clippers authored a two-out two-run rally in the bottom half, getting runners to second and third on a two-out single by Matt Carson and a double by James Ramsey. Chris Wallace hit a ball to third, but a throwing error by Cesar Hernandez allowed Carson and Ramsey to score the tying and winning runs.

Mark Lowe (3-2) got the win for Columbus while Luis Garcia (2-1) took the loss for the IronPigs.

With a loss by Indianapolis, the Clippers’ lead in the International League West increased to five games.

The series finale is Thursday at Huntington Park at 7:05 p.m.
