Columbus Clippers 17, Louisville Bats 11
In 2016, Cleveland’s Triple-A team beat Cincinnati’s Triple-A team and did it by getting more than three hits and scoring quite a few more than just four runs.
The #ClipShow scored one run in the first, two in the second and third, three in the fourth, four in the sixth, once in the eighth and four more times in the ninth.
Yandy Diaz kicked off the scoring with a solo homer in the first inning, one of his four RBI in the game. He later had a sac fly, RBI groundout and an RBI single to cap off his productive day.
Guillermo Quiroz hit a two run homer in the second and joined Diaz with four RBI on the day. He added a sac fly in the third and an RBI double in the sixth inning.
While the Clippers had a pair of hitters with four RBI in this offensive outburst, Jesus Aguilar (remember him?) topped them all with a five RBI day.
He got started late, with a two run homer in the fourth, then a two run double in the sixth and then capped it off with a two run double in the top of the ninth.
Bradley ZImmer led that game off for the Clippers and collected four hits, two of which were doubles. Gio Urshela, now firmly in the middle of the Yankees deep lineup, also had four hits in this contest.
It was more than enough offense for Adam Plutko, who fanned eight in six innings and allowed just two runs.
