It took a couple of innings, but the Mud Hens offense woke up in time to pound out a 9-2 victory over Lehigh Valley in a Monday morning game at Fifth Third Field.
Toledo scored three times in the third inning, then pounded out a pair of runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth to thrill the crowd of 9,288, the fourth sellout for the Mud Hens this season.
The victory gave Toledo a split of its four-game series with the IronPigs.
The Mud Hens took advantage of a pair of Lehigh Valley errors to score its three runs in the third, with Jeff Frazier hitting a sacrifice fly and Brent Clevlen adding an RBI single.
In the fourth, Frazier slammed his first Triple-A home run, a two-run blow down the left-field line, and Don Kelly added a solo shot into The Roost in the fifth.
Ryan Roberson capped the Hens scoring with a two-run single in the sixth.
That was more than enough offense for Toledo starter Scot Drucker, who evened his record at 2-2 with six solid innings of work. Drucker allowed six hits and one walk while fanning a career-high eight IronPigs.
Lehigh Valley s Andy Tracy, a native of Bowling Green, scored both of his team s runs. He hammered his fifth home run of the season, a solo shot to right in the second, and walked in the fourth before scoring on a two-out double by Pablo Ozuna.
Ron Chiavacci allowed just one hit in three scoreless innings to claim the save.
