Two more base knocks for Clement

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Jeff Clement collected two hits for the second day in a row and drove in both Rochester runs but the Red Wings were defeated 3-2 by the Columbus Clippers in Sunday afternoon’s International League baseball game at Huntington Park.

The Marshalltown native Clement had a run-scoring single in the second inning and took a bases-loaded walk to plate another run in the top of the eighth. He also had a single in the fourth, helping to up his batting average to .171 on the season.

Over the last three games, Clement is hitting 5-for-11 (.455) with two home runs and five RBIs. He has walked twice and struck out only once in that span.

The Red Wings (12-18), the Triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, begin a four-game series with the Toledo Mud Hens tonight in Toledo, Ohio.
