Carl Pavano

August 25, 2006: Columbus Clippers 8, Indianapolis Indians 2

Gee, who is this kid Pavano? He looks pretty good!

Rehabbing Carl Pavano led the Clippers to victory over division-leading Indianapolis. Or the former division-leading Indianapolis, anyway. Thanks to the loss, they fell out of first place.

Bubba went 1 for 5 with a run, a double, and 2 RBI. He also hit a couple of balls pretty hard, and was robbed by sparkling defense.

From the Columbus Dispatch:

The Clippers were powered by the first three batters in the lineup. Bubba Crosby, Andy Cannizaro and Mitch Jones had five of the 11 hits and each had two RBI, including Jones’ two-run homer — his 19 th — in the fifth. Crosby doubled in two runs in a five-run second.

The Clippers and the Indians play again tonight at 7:05pm. Bubba is in CF and is batting leadoff again. Follow the game online here, or listen to free Gameday audio here.
