Clippers Beat Bisons

Friday, 2008-May-23 at 15:13

Yesterday, the International League’s Buffalo Bisons visited the Columbus Clippers. The score was Bisons: 1, Clippers: 4. As part of my normal practice of going to see baseball games wherever I am and whenever I can, I went to watch the game.

According to the program, the stadium dates back to the 1930s, and the site has been a baseball park for 96 years. This is its final season.

The Game

The Clippers scored two runs on a pair of singles in the third. The Bisons scored a run in the fifth. Twice, the Bisons had the tying run on base (once with the go-ahead run on base), but the Clippers were able to get out of them. Most spectacularly when Shin-Soo Choo grounded out to first. The Bison pitcher seemed to have unhittable “stuff” for a few innings, but that all changed in the bottom of the 8th, when the Clippers scored two more runs to put the game out of reach.

As I have often said, all other sports are merely off-season practice for baseball. This game confirms that impression. If you find yourself in Central Ohio, check out the Clippers.
