• Clippers Upend Tribe 4-1

    September 02, 2010 No comments

    Shortstop Josh Rodriguez and former Tribe catcher Luke Carlin combined to go 5-for-7 with three runs and two RBI, while in his Triple-A debut starter Corey Kluber allowed just one run on four hits over six innings to lead the Columbus Clippers over the Indianapolis Indians 4-1 on Wednesday night at Victory Field.

    Though Indianapolis jumped out to a 1-0 advantage when C Jason Jaramillo singled home RF Brandon Moss in the second, Columbus quickly took over the lead for good with a three-run third before adding an insurance tally in the seventh on their way to the 4-1 victory.

    The Tribe’s offensive shut down was due in large part to Kluber who was brilliant in his Triple-A debut, as he allowed just one run on four singles, while striking out four over six innings of work.

     Indians’ starter Brad Lincoln was pinned with the loss to fall to 7-4 on the season after allowing two runs on two hits in his pitch count limited action.  RHP Joe Martinez followed Lincoln and surrendered just two runs despite allowing eight hits, while fellow reliever Brian Bass finished the contest with two scoreless innings of work.

    A bright spot on the evening was the Tribe’s defense which quelled several Columbus rallies by turning four double plays.

     Indianapolis now begins their final home series of the season against the Louisville Bats tonight beginning at a new start time of 6:00 p.m.  LHP Dana Eveland is expected to get the start for the Indians, while RHP Chad Reineke is the probable starter for the Bats.
