Clip & Dirty: 8/17
The Clippers beat the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees by a score of 5-1 on the strength of another great outing by Carlos Carrasco. Carrasco has heated up during the month of August and will be in position to get a call up in September in order to help out the big league club. The Clippers now stand 2.5 games ahead of Lousiville for the lead in the IL West. Only 20 games remain for the Clippers as they try to hang onto their current, and season-long, postseason bid.
