COLUMBUS -- The Mud Hens had nine straight batters reach base in the seventh inning and scored six times on the way to an 8-3 victory over Columbus Wednesday.
Ryan Raburn and John Lindsey each had two-run homers in the seventh in a contest that featured 18 walks, 10 by Clippers pitchers.
Duane Below started for the Hens and gave up two hits and four walks in four innings. The only run he allowed came when Jared Goedert opened the second with his 12th home run of the season.
The Hens scored twice in the fifth thanks to Raburn, who began a rehab assignment with the team Wednesday. With one out Argenis Diaz drew a walk from Columbus starter Matt Packer, and Justin Henry followed with a single in front of Raburn, who drove both home with a double.
Toledo broke the game open with the six-run seventh. With one out, Henry doubled off Columbus reliever Tyler Sturdevant, then scored on Raburn's home run. Don Kelly walked, and Lindsey hammered his 12th home run of the season to knock Sturdevant out of the box.
But reliever Loek Van Mil was greeted by a Ben Guez double, then walked Danny Dorn to set up a run-scoring double by Danny Worth.
Bryan Holaday walked to load the bases, and Diaz singled home Dorn.
The wildness of Hens reliever Andy Oliver cost Toledo a run in the eighth as two walks and a hit batsman loaded the bases for a sacrifice fly by Matt Pagnozzi.
Luis Marte pitched out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the eighth but gave up a run in the ninth. Marte gave up singles to Vinny Rottino and Russ Canzler before Goedert grounded out to score Rottino.
