The Columbus Clippers knocked off the Syracuse Chiefs, 2-0, in game two of their four-game set tonight at Huntington behind a pair of big hits from Bobby Bradley and Brandon Barnes.
Bradley stroked his first career Triple-A homerun in the second inning to take a 1-0 lead, and Barnes supplied an RBI double in the fifth to make it 2-0. That's all the Clippers pitching staff would need, as it shut down Syracuse all night long.
Stephen Fife had the start for Columbus and worked four two-hit, shutout innings. He didn't walk a batter and struck out two.
He was relieved by Myles Jaye, who was equally as good, tossing three no-hit innings. He walked one and fanned two Chiefs.
Ben Taylor closed things out with a scoreless ninth to secure the 2-0 win.
The Clippers and Chiefs will face off tomorrow night in game three at 7:15 p.m. at Huntington Park.
