Back-to-back 2-hit games for Clement

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – Jeff Clement had his second consecutive two-hit game to get back to the Mendoza Line, and the Rochester Red Wings clubbed the Lehigh Valley IronPigs 11-0 in an International League baseball game Sunday at Coca-Cola Park.

Clement collected his 12th in his last 10 games, helping his batting average get to .200 for the first time this season. The Marshalltown native went 2-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and two RBIs in support of right-hander Kyle Gibson’s three-hit shutout.

Used primarily as a designated hitter, Clement is 12 for his last 40, racking up five extra-base hits during that span.

The Minnesota Twins’ Triple-A affiliate totaled 16 hits in the win.

The IronPigs are a minor league club of the Philadelphia Phillies.
