Clippers win high-scoring showdown
Another game, another offensive explosion for the Clippers as they won 18-12 over the Charlotte Knights Monday.
Nine Clippers came to the plate in the first inning, as they put up four runs. Still, the Knights came back and led 9-6 in the top of the seventh. Then, a Luis Valbuena double, scoring Lonnie Chisenhall, Chad Huffman and Jason Kipnis tied the game. The Clippers broke it open in the eighth with an Ezequiel Carrera single. They went on to score eight more runs in the inning.
Carrera went 4-6 on the game, driving in four and scoring twice.
The win marks the twelfth in a row for the Clippers, and they look to sweep with a win against the Knights Tuesday. Right-hander Zach McAllister puts his 4-0 record on the line against Charlotte’s Freddy Dolsi.
