Mud Hens drop series to Tides

NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk's Chris Tillman struck out a season-high 10 batters, Toledo's Brent Dlugach made two errors that led to pair of unearned runs, and the Mud Hens fell 4-1 to the Tides to drop their first road series of the season.

Jeff Larish led Toledo's offense with a pair of hits, including a solo shot off Tillman in the seventh inning to get the Mud Hens on the scoreboard. Casper Wells added two singles.

Tillman (3-3) allowed one run on four hits to claim the victory.

Mud Hens' starter Ryan Ketchner (0-1) pitched a season-high six innings and allowed two earned runs on just four hits and a walk. He struck out four.

The Tides jumped to a 1-0 lead when Ketchner walked leadoff hitter Robert Andino. Andino advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Joey Gathright and an infield single by Corey Patterson. Josh Bell then grounded into a fielder's choice to score Andino.

Norfolk's Brandon Snyder extended the lead 2-0 in the second with a home run, and errors in the seventh and eighth sealed the win.

With Gathright at first in the seventh, Patterson hit a ground ball to second baseman Will Rhymes, who tossed the ball to Dlugach for the force. Dlugach, however, dropped it. Gathright advanced to third on a fly ball by Bell, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Scott Moore.

Toledo dropped to 16-15, while the Tides improved to 14-17.

The Hens travel to Durham today to begin a four-game series before returning to Fifth Third Field to face the Indianapolis at 7:05 p.m. Friday.
