Columbus Nips Toledo 2-1

Columbus used some excellent pitching combined with some timely hitting to squeak out a 2-1 win in a tightly played contest against Toledo. Right-hander Tomo Ohka's second start since slipping into the rotation for the departed Aaron Laffey was a gem as he went 6 shutout innings and allowed 5 hits, 1 walk, and had 4 strikeouts.

Lefty Tony Sipp battled through 2 innings of relief and got the hold while right-hander Matt Herges closed out the 9th for his first save of the season.

It was a quiet night for the Clipper offense as they only manager six hits, but the big hits were a Matt LaPorta home run to lead off the 6th inning and a Michael Brantley single in the 3rd inning to plate the game's first run.
