Sizemore HR helps Hens sweep

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Mud Hens swept a doubleheader from the Rochester Red Wings Sunday, winning the first game 6-4 then taking the nightcap 3-1 in 11 innings on Scott Sizemore's two-run homer.

The Hens took a 4-2 lead with four runs in the fourth inning of the first game as Sizemore walked and Wilkin Ramirez reached base on an error. A bunt single by Clete Thomas loaded the bases.

Jeff Larish doubled in two runs, Brent Clevlen singled in another, and Jeff Frazier capped the rally with a sacrifice fly.

The Hens built on a 4-3 lead in the seventh as Max St-Pierre reached on an error with one out, Sizemore followed with a single and both moved up a base on a wild pitch. The runners held when Ramirez gounded out, but Thomas delivered a two-out, two-run double.

Winner Ruddy Lugo (6-5) gave up three runs on seven hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out four. Clay Rapada pitched an uneventful sixth and Freddy Dolsi gave up a run in the ninth but picked up his fourth save.

Fu-Te Ni (3-0) picked up the victory in the second game with two innings of relief.
