Columbus Clippers 5, Toledo Mud Hens 4

Twelve inning games are rare. It took the Columbus Clippers (33-21) a little longer in the game against the Toledo Mud Hens to find enough hits for a win (25-27).

Despite both teams being scoreless for six innings, Toledo had more traffic on the bases.

Call doubled on a line drive to left field to get the rally going. Bobby Bradley, the game’s designated hitter, advanced him to third with a single. Fry, who hit the game winning home run Saturday, drove Call in with a single to center field for his 25th RBI of the year.

Justin Garza walked two of batters with one out in the eighth inning and then allowed a three run homer to the Mud Hends Trayce Thomspon.  At the bottom of the ninth inning, Call was walked. Then, Bradley smacked a ball into the gap between center field and right field for an RBI double. Bradley was switched out for pinch runner Jose Fermin. Tolman then tied the game with a sacrifice fly out to right field to score Fermin from third after advancing to third on a groundout from Fry. 

The Mud Hens regained their lead with a Thompson double in the 10th. 

But with Gavin Collins being placed on second base at the top of the inning and a single from Tyler Freeman, the game was tied once again. Fry started at second at the top of the 12th inning. A single by Collins followed was followed by one from Trent Brooks to walk it off again for the Clippers.
