Huntington Park, Columbus, OH
The Clippers finish their 5th shut-out game of the season strongly, well on their way to their eventual AAA Championship. Clippers RHP Jeanmar Gomez had been consistent at being inconsistent until he pitched this gem; 7 innings, 3 hits, 6 strikeouts, and no runs.

The Clippers backed Gomez up with a premium offense, highlighted by 3 HR (Goedert, Rodriguez, and Gimenez) all with at least one man on base.
Notice Donachie's GIDP during the top of the 8th inning, it's a truly rare 5-6-4-3 DP that occurred by the deflection of the ball, accurately, from Goedert (3B) to Bixler (SS). Even Clippers TV color commentator and 9-season MiLB veteran Wayne Harer was alarmed by this occurence.
