Watkins Clippers lose a heartbreaker at home

The Watkins Clippers visited the Kimball Express on Sunday, and apparently forgot to pack-up the bats. Kimball’s Adam Theis W-096-Express-vs-Clipperswent the distance, giving up just two hits, walking 4, and striking out 12. Watkins’ Bruce Geislinger, charged with the loss, pitched 6 innings, giving up 4 hits and one run, walking 1 and fanning 3.

Clippers’ highlights: Adam Hiltner and Grant Warren managed the only hits.

Express highlights: Brooks Marquardt, home-run; Brian Marquardt, Jordan Joseph, and Austin Ruehle each had a hit.
