Mud Hens sweep doubleheader

BLADE STAFF

The Mud Hens completed a day-night doubleheader sweep of Louisville today by winning the night contest 5-1.

Toledo had six pitchers combine to limit the Bats to seven hits and a single run, which came on a home run by Juan Silverio.

While the Hens had just six hits, four of them were home runs: two by Brandon Douglas, a two-run shot in the third and a solo homer in the fifth, and solo home runs by Mike Hessman in the sixth and eighth.

In the day game Derek Hankins and two relievers pitched the Mud Hens to a 4-1 win over Louisville. Hankins allowed just four hits and three walks in seven innings, retiring 13 in a row at one point.
