Indians game with Columbus suspended in 14th inning tied at 4


Both squads’ bats were kept in check in the second frame, but the Clippers took advantage of another walk to snag a small lead in the third. After Carson whiffed for the second time in as many at-bats, Diaz walked to first on a base-on-balls and advanced all the way to third courtesy of a one-out single to right from Rohlinger. Luis Hernandez then lifted a deep sac fly to center to allow Diaz to trot home to put Columbus up 3-2.

Trailing by a score in the fourth, Indianapolis used one booming swing to claw it’s way back into the contest as Bocock, who was officially acquired from Washington moments before today’s game, smashed a solo homer in his second at-bat with the Tribe to tie the score 3-3. The longball was Bocock’s first of the 2013 season despite appearing in 22 games Triple-A Syracuse, and his first since Aug. 7, 2012 when he was with Double-A New Hampshire.

Although the Indians tagged Joe Martinez (7.0 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 SO) for three scores, Columbus’ starter otherwise delivered a solid outing, fanning a season-high tying seven to just two walks in his 7.0 frames of action. The right-hander surrendered eight scattered hits but ultimately did not factor into the game’s final decision.

In the home half of the fourth, the Indians passed the ball along to Ryan Reid in favor of Oliver (3.0 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 SO), with the right-handed starter having allowed three earned runs in a season-low 3.0 innings of work. With Reid (2.0 IP, H, 2 SO) on the hill, the Tribe cruised through the fifth and sixth as its reliever surrendered just one hit while fanning two before giving way to Jose Contreras.

Contreras (1.2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER) however, wasn’t as fortunate as Reid, and booted a ball from Carrera for a three-base error that moved the runner only 90 feet away from home. Following a coaching visit to the mound, Contreras induced a flyout from Hermida, but the ball sailed deep enough to allow Carrera to tag from third and boost the Clippers to a 4-3 edge.
