Season-high 16 hits pace Mud Hens in 12-2 win over Rochester


The Mud Hens used a season-best offensive explosion to claim a 12-2 win over Rochester at Fifth Third Field today.

Toledo posted a season-high 16 hits and scored in four different innings, including a six-run sixth inning in which the Hens sent 11 batters to the plate.

Kevin Russo had four hits in the game, Nick Castellanos had three, and Danny Dorn hit a three-run homer in the fifth.

That was more than enough offense for starter Jose Alvarez, who allowed six hits and two runs while striking out 11.
