Box Score · Clippers improve to 20-27

Ryan Merritt turned in another great start for the Columbus Clippers yesterday, dropping his ERA to under 4.00 for the first time since April 18. He only struck out one Norfolk Tide batter, a season-low, but he allowed two runs off eight hits.

Ronny Rodriguez and Eric Stamets set the table well for the Columbus Clippers offense, combining to go 5-for-7 with three doubles and a home run courtesy of Stamets. The pair did not strike out once and Stamets also drew a walk.

Nick Pasquale got the start, but was shelled for seven runs over five innings. He struck out six and did not issue a walk, but was unable to overcome nine hits — the Baysox went 4-for-14 with runners in scoring position and only stranded six runners.

Lynchburg Hillcats 5, Salem Red Sox 4

Box Score · Hillcats improve to 27-20

The Lynchburg Hillcats just keep rolling, with their 5-4 win yesterday giving them a 6-2 record over the last week and the best record in the Indians organization.

Sicnarf Loopstok led the way with two hits, one of only four Hillcats batters to hit on the day. Triston McKenzie had a rare bad outing on the mound, but he still struck out eight batters and only walked two. His big issues was home runs. After giving up two home runs over his first eight starts, the 19-year-old phenom gave up three yesterday.
