INDIANAPOLIS -- The Mud Hens snapped their six-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over Indianapolis on Tuesday.
Jacob Turner, making his first start for Toledo following a spot start with Detroit on Thursday, allowed six hits and three walks in six innings but gave up only two runs. The runs came in third inning when, with two outs, Turner walked Chase d'Arnaud and Starling Marte followed with his seventh home run of the season.
The Mud Hens had only one hit against Indianapolis starter Rudy Owens until breaking through for three runs in the sixth. Argenis Diaz and Justin Henry opened the inning with singles to put runners on first and third with none out.
Matt Young singled off the glove of Yamaico Navarro at second, allowing Diaz to score, Henry to race to third and Young to take second. One out later Ryan Strieby singled to score Henry and push Young to third, where he came home on a sacrifice fly by Jeff Baisley.
Indianapolis had several chances to tie the game.
The Indians loaded the bases in the sixth off Turner but did not score, then had Gorkys Hernandez thrown out at the plate trying to stretch a triple into an inside-the-park home run leading off the seventh against Jose Ortega.
Toledo added a run in the eighth when Young doubled, took third on a groundout by John Lindsey, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Strieby. That run proved valuable in the ninth when Brandon Boggs led off with a triple against closer Chris Bootcheck, then scored on a groundout by Anderson Hernandez.
Turner improved to 3-1, while Bootcheck set down the Indians for his 14th save. Owens fell to 6-3 with the loss.
