The Clippers keep on chugging along in first. After defeating the Louisville Bats 10-7 on Tuesday night, they now stand at 35-20, 4.0 games ahead of Toledo in the West and 3.0 games ahead of Syracuse for the best record in the IL.

Josh Judy came in and gave up a homer after a walk, but avoided any further troubles. Joe Smith pitched a ROOGY-esque performance by inducing contact and burning up the infield. He required 8 pitches to retire the side in the 9th which netted him the save.

Team Hitting: 10 R, 14H, 6XBH, 4BB, 6SO, 2SB

Wes Hodges (3-4, 2B, 2R, 2RBI) is picking it up as of late, with an OPS of 1.071 over the last 2 weeks which helped to mitigate a previously cold 2 weeks; he has a .822 OPS over the past month which is right about at his career level. His 200 PA/month sample size isn
