Mud Hens losing streak hits 5 games

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Mud Hens pitcher Jacob Turner fired two scoreless innings before Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got to him, pushing three runs across the board in the third and fourth innings in a game Toledo eventually lost 5-2.

Turner took the loss, his first of the year, after going five innings and giving up four hits, three runs, and five walks while striking out three. The Tigers prospect owns a 5.09 ERA on the season.

The loss was Toledo's fifth in a row, and the Hens have gone 1-8 in their last nine games.

The Mud Hens took an early 1-0 lead after Audy Ciriaco picked up an RBI on a force out which scored Eric Patterson in the second.

Brad Eldred's RBI double, which sent Matt Young home, extended the lead to 2-0 in the third.

But Scranton/Wilkes-Barre rallied to tie the game in the bottom of the third on Matt Antonelli's RBI single and Steve Pearce's RBI double off Turner.

In the fourth, the Yankees took the lead on Gustavo Molina's solo home run to left field.

Scranton added to its lead in the seventh when Antontelli scored on Ronnie Mustelier's grounder up the middle and Jack Cust reached home on Brandon Laird's ground out to third.

Dellin Betances earned the win for the Yankees, going six innings and giving up four hits, two runs, and four walks with four strikeouts.

Justin Henry and Argenis Diaz each had two hits for Toledo.
