Matt Hague and Josh Harrison both contributed to the Indians' rallies.
For the second day in a row, the Indianapolis Indians staged a hit-fest against the first-place Clippers, to sweep this 2-game series at Huntington Park in Columbus, OH this afternoon. The Indians' hit parade was led by 2B Jordy Mercer and C Jason Jaramillo, who combined for 7 RBI. Jaramillo and 1B Matt Hague posted 3 hits each, while Mercer and 3B Josh Harrison each had 2 hits. Starter Brian Burres earned his 4th win of the season, pitching 6 innings.
The Indians put one runner on base in each of the first three innings, but could not score. DH Jose Tabata reached base on a fielding error to begin the game, but he was thrown out trying to steal second base. Hague led off the 2nd with a single into center field. Three ground outs took care of the rest of the inning. RF Miles Durham walked to begin the 3rd, and he was left standing on first...
