Columbus scored five runs in the top of the 1st, wasting no time in jumping out ahead of Louisville. Juan Diaz hit a GS as part of that first innings, part of a 2-5 night for him and his second HR since joining Columbus (#13 on the season). Vinny Rottino went 3-3 with two doubles and two walks, joining four other Clippers' with doubles in the game. David Huff had what might have been his best start of the season, giving up just one run (solo-HR) in eight innings, walking one and getting 5 Ks.
T.J. House got roughed up in the first inning (four runs, three hits, three walks) and ended up leaving the game after the first frame. The bullpen managed to hold Erie largely in check after that, including 1.2 hitless/scoreless innings from Bryce Stowell, but the Aeros' offense was not up to the task against Erie's pitchers.
The Mahoning Valley boxscores look to get more interesting from here on out, as 17-year old Dorssys Paulino was promoted today, but for now...meh. Erik Gonzalez (#2) and Andrew Campbell (#1) each hit 2-run HRs.
The teenage trio of Eric Haase, Anthony Santander and Manuel Boscan all had doubles for the Goodyear squad (Santander had two, actually), but the Indians came up short. Dylan Baker recorded four Ks in four innings of work while allowing two runs.
