Richmond (7-11) opens series in Columbus with a 6-3 win

Stubby Clapp hit a three run home run in the fifth inning to help lead the Richmond Braves (7-11) over the Columbus Clippers 6-3 on Monday night.

Clapp's home run was part of a five run fifth inning, good enough to give Richmond starter John Ennis (1-1) the run support he needed for his first AAA victory. Ennis went five innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits. He had two walks and three strikeouts.

Offensively, Clapp, Wilson Betemit, and Damon Hollins each had two hits for Richmond. Hollins and Mike Hessman had the other RBI's.

Richmond finishes up its brief two game series in Columbus with an afternoon game Tuesday starting at 12:05. Jason Marquis will pitch for Richmond.

NOTE: Kaz Takeoka was sent down to AA Greenville to make room on the Richmond roster for Marquis.

Despite a solid performance from starter Macay McBride, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans lost 3-2 to Lynchburg in ten innings Monday night.

McBride went six innings, allowed two earned runs on four hits, two walks and four strikeouts.

Ralph Roberts (1-1) took the loss for the Pelicans as he allowed the game winning hit to Jeff Keppinger in the top of the 10th.

T.J. Pena and Greg Miller had RBI singles for the Pelicans.
