Indy Indians faced their second shutout by the Columbus Clippers in two days. Clippers’ Salazar only allowed the Indians five hits in the first six innings, and struck out seven players in six innings. Over the course of the game, the Clippers played 4 pitchers, all denying the Indians a score on the board, and only letting one hit through in four innings.
Indians starter, Adrian Simpson, was not as stingy with his game play, allowing a two-run home run to Clippers’ Ramsey in the first inning, with a line drive to right field. Jesus Aguilar would hit off of Simpson in the third inning with a double on a fly ball to center field, allowing Tyler Holt to score.
Simpson and the Indians were able to hold off additional scoring from the Clippers for the rest of the evening, ending with a 3-0 score. Indy faces off against Cleveland for two additional games this weekend, before facing Toledo and Louisville in a busy week at home.
Despite the paired losses, the Pittsburgh Triple-A affiliate are ramping up their 2015 season. One of the best family and community-based attractions in Indy, Victory Field will be home to some of the greatest games and events this summer. Come cheer on Rowdie and your Indy Indians this summer!!
