Columbus Clippers 10, Indianapolis Indians 6
A number of different interesting occurrences happened in this contest between the Indians Triple-A club and the Indians of Triple-A (Pirates affiliate).
The first thing that pops out about the box score is Greg Allen going a perfect 5-5, all of which were singles. Allen scored a run, drove in a run, stole a base and was also caught stealing.
Adam Rosales hit a pair of homers. Francisco Mejia had four hits a few weeks before he was ultimately traded.
Future Cleveland Indian Jordan Luplow was in the lineup for Indianapolis for this contest as well.

2015 was Mike Clevinger’s first full season in the Indians organization and was really hitting his stride mid-summer. In this contest, he went 7.2 innings, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out nine.

As rare as Greg Allen’s perfect 5-5 game was, even rarer is the six RBI game. This one came from Adam Abraham, the Indians 13th round pick in the 2008 draft.
Abraham doubled in a run in the first inning, doubled in two runs in the seventh, and then hit a three run homer in the eighth.
That was unfortunately Abraham’s last year in pro ball. He was a member of the 2010 Captains championship squad and 2012 Aeros title winning team.
Future Indians coaches Jordan Smith and Justin Toole were also in the lineup in this contest.
Brad Brach was also the starter for Harrisburg in this one, future Baltimore reliever and brother of Brett Brach, who was also a member of the 2010 Captains title team.
