RICHMOND, VA—Fernando Seguignol and Andy Phillips each hit two-run homers to lift the Columbus Clippers to a 6-2 victory over the Richmond Braves at The Diamond Monday.
Seguignol broke open a 1-0 game by taking a Joe Dawley (0-1) offering over the left field fence for his fourth homer of the season. The game remained at 3-0 until the seventh, when Phillips hit his homer off reliever Kazuhiro Takeoka. Bobby Smith's two-out double to center field knocked in the Clippers' final run of the game.
Columbus received 6.1 strong innings from starter Adrian Hernandez (1-1). The Clippers' right-hander struck out eight Braves, allowing just one run on five hits and a walk. Randy Choate and Alberto Reyes worked the final 2.2 frames as Columbus achieved a split in this four-game series.
