Mud Hens claim 4th straight win

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Mud Hens offense was hitting on all cylinders in Thursday night's 7-2 victory over the Syracuse Chiefs, the team's fourth-straight win.

The victory was highlighted by a five-run fourth inning in which 10 Mud Hens came to the plate.

Duane Below (2-1) earned his second win of the season after working seven innings, striking out five and allowing just one run to score.

Toledo (10-12) tallied the game's first run in the top of the second on a sacrifice fly by Cesar Nicolas.

Tonight was Nicolas' first game with the Mud Hens as he was spending time in extended spring training.

John Murrian dealt the big blow in the fifth when he singled in Bryan Pounds -- who went 4-for-4 -- and Scott Thorman. Cale Iorg scored, and Murrian advanced to second on a throwing error by the Chiefs' (7-14).

Zach Simons came out of the bullpen and worked the final two innings for the Hens.
