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.
