Tony Sipp Pitches, Plays Outfield, Pitches Again, All In One Inning

Former Clemson Tiger Tony Sipp had himself an eventful evening for the Houston Astros Monday night. Sipp, a left handed pitcher, played one season for Clemson in 2004, where he played the outfield as well as handling reliving duties on the mound.

Tuesday night Sipp returned to the outfield, if only for one batter.

Sipp came on in the seventh inning with the Astros leading 4-3. He tossed a scoreless frame before going back out to the hill in the eighth and retiring the first batter of the inning. Sipp then moved to right field for a batter who was promptly walked, before being called back in to the infield to face another batter, who he struck out, to end his night.

Sipp’s 1.2 scoreless innings were nothing new for the lefty in 2014, as he is sporting an impressive 2.70 ERA and 0.68 WHIP in 13.1 innings pitched.
