Minor Notes:

Popham Shelled In First Columbus Start: Right-handed Marty Popham made his first start for the Clippers Saturday where he gave up six earned runs and nine hits in four innings pitched. Popham has excelled in the Indians farm system, starting the 2010 season at Class-A Lake County, and made his way all the way up to AAA Columbus this week. This season he has an ERA of 4.47 with 79 strikeouts and 21 walks in 92 innings pitched. Popham was drafted by the Indians out of Union College in the 20th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft.

Head Returns To Clippers: Outfielder Jerad Head, who spent most of May at AAA Columbus before being sent back down to AA Akron, has joined the Clippers once again. Coming off a 13-game hitting streak, Head was batting .299 at Akron with ten home runs, 15 doubles and 28 RBI, and was a recipient of the Aeros Player Of The Week Award late last month.

Webb Consistent At Kinston: Outfielder Donnie Webb has been solid for advanced Class-A Kinston since being promoted from Lake County earlier this season. Webb has been putting up good numbers on a consistent basis, and looks like he may be promoted to AA Akron in the near future. Webb is currently batting .253 with four home runs, seven doubles and 22 RBI.
