Zach Plesac (5-4) had everything working on Thursday night at Huntington Park. The RHP had his best outing since rejoining Columbus in June. He went eight innings, surrendering a solo home run to Michael Hermosillo in the top of the sixth inning. Plesac finished the day with a no-decision, striking out six RailRider hitters and walking none.

Raynel Delgado smacked his seventh home run of the year in the eighth inning which tied the game at 1-1.

Tim Herrin (6-2) worked a scoreless top of the ninth inning, striking out two. Kyle Manzardo led off the bottom half of the ninth inning with a double, he moved over to third on a Jhonkensy Noel groundout, then scored the game-winning run on a Johnathan Rodriguez groundout to short. Veleros pick up the 2-1 win and take a 2-1 lead in the series with Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Columbus has won five of their past six games.

The series continues Friday night at Huntington Park as los Veleros transform back into the Clippers and face the RailRiders at 7:05pm. Gates will open at 6:00pm.
