The Clippers faced their biggest loss of the season against the Bulls on Wednesday by a score of 17-2. They were able to win one game out of the series on Thursday in a 5-4 contest. They continued the road trip traveling to Norfolk for the weekend and took two out of three versus the Tides. Back to Huntington Park for the new week, and in a low scoring matchup the Clippers won 2-1 against Rochester. Columbus did not bring any batters across the plate as the Red Wings shut them out 8-0 on Tuesday evening.
Adam Plutko continues to be successful at the minor league level posting a 7-3 record with a 1.70 ERA. His last outing was a 1-0 victory on Sunday, where he pitched five innings, and allowed four hits with five strikeouts. Both Adam Rosales and Eric Haase are tied for the team lead in home runs with sixteen apiece. So, for continuing to power the Clips’ offense both those guys deserve to be outstanding players of the week.

His call up would occur on August 15, 2014 before being traded a season later to the Padres for Will Venable. On March 22, 2018 he signed a minor league deal with the Indians as the teams closing pitcher.
