WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - The Mud Hens used three home runs to claim a 5-4 exhibition victory yesterday over Buffalo, Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate.
Ryan Raburn hit his sixth home run of the exhibition season, a three-run shot, while Sandy Martinez, who was sent down by the parent Tigers on Wednesday, added a pair of home runs to lead the Hens.
Jeremy Bonderman, Detroit's Opening Day starter, threw one inning for Toledo before being relieved by Kenny Baugh. Chris Spurling, Vic Darensbourg and Jason Karnuth also threw for the Hens.
The Mud Hens, now 4-3-2 on the exhibition season, will travel to Kissimmee today to play Round Rock, Houston's top farm team, in Toledo's final exhibition game.
