It was a perfect ending to a perfect 77 degree night at Huntington Park Saturday. With the game tied at three in the bottom of the ninth inning, Columbus Clippers catcher Chris Wallace delivered a clutch two-out single to right field for a 4-3 walk off victory over the Scranton/WB RailRiders. Right fielder Matt Carson walked to begin the inning and then quickly swiped second to put himself into scoring position. Left fielder Cedric Hunter then laid a sacrifice bunt down the first base line to advance Carson to third. But with one swing of the bat, Wallace became a hero and did so in front of the Clippers’ first sellout crowd of the season.
