COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus jumped all over lefthander Pat Combs last night, scoring five runs in the first two innings as the Clippers routed the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons, 9-3, in an International League game.

Combs (0-1), who started the season with the Phillies and is with the Red Barons on a rehabilitation assignment, pitched 1 2/3 innings, giving up five runs - all earned - on six hits.

Winner Chuck Cary (5-0) went six innings and gave up one run on four hits with two strikeouts.

Columbus' Tory Lovullo had three RBIs, and pitcher Daven Bond got his first career save with three innings of relief.

READING 4, NEW BRITAIN 2

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. - Tony Trevino drove in Cary Williams in the 10th inning for the game-winning run to lead the Reading Phillies to a victory over the New Britain Red Sox in an Eastern League game.

The Phillies added an insurance run in the 10th when Tom Marsh scored on a wild pitch by Ken Ryan (1-1).

New Britain had tied the game at 2-2 in the ninth when winner Toby Borland (7-2) balked home Dave Milstien.

The Phillies opened the scoring in the fourth when Trevino and former Bristol High star Edwin Rosado hit RBI doubles for a 2-0 lead.
