COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Clippers got off to an early start on their way to a 9-4 win over the defending Governor’s Cup champion Durham Bulls in the opening game of the Cup semifinal series at Huntington Park Wednesday night.

Columbus struck for a pair of runs when their second hitter of the game, David Murphy, hit a two-run homer over the right field fence.

Jeremy Moore’s two-run homer in the sixth inning cut the lead to one run but that would be the closest the Bulls would get however, as the Clippers struck for a trio of runs in the bottom of the inning and, continued to roll in the seventh, opening their lead to 9-3 on James Ramsey’s two-run homer.

Kyle Davies (1-0) earned the win, striking out nine hitters, while Alex Colome (0-1) suffered the loss.

Game Two is set for 7:05 p.m. Thursday at Huntington Park.
