Nearly everyone realizes that the Yankees' near trade for Cliff Lee to a starting pitching staff…
Clippers Win, Need One More For Title
The Clippers stole an insurance run in the fifth. Jose Constanza singled, was bunted to second by Ezequiel Carrera and took third on a wild pitch. After Phelps walked, the runners pulled a double steal, Constanza scoring and Phelps going to second.
McAllister didn't walk a batter over seven sharp innings, striking out five and allowing only six hits. The right-hander had been consistently mediocre since being acquired from the New York Yankees' farm system in mid-August. He was the player to be named in the deal that sent veteran outfielder Austin Kearns from the Cleveland Indians to New York in July.
McAllister went only 1-2 with a 6.88 ERA in three regular-season starts for Columbus after compiling a 8-10 record and 5.09 ERA in 24 starts for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before the trade.
Zach Putnam and Vinnie Pestano finished the combined eight-hit shutout. Each yielded one hit over one inning. Pestano struck out one and Pestano fanned three.
Right-hander Yohan Pino will start Game 3 for the Clippers tonight in Durham.
