Mud Hens get 3-2 win over Columbus in extra innings


The Mud Hens' Kevin Russo scored on a fielder's choice as Toledo claimed a 3-2 win over Columbus in 11 innings tonight.

Russo was on third base when Ronnie Paulino hit a grounder to third. Ryan Rohlinger's throw to the plate beat Russo, but Russo knocked the ball out of the glove of Clippers catcher Roberto Perez for the winning run.

Nick Castellanos hit a two-run homer in the sixth, his 17th home run of the season for Toledo's other two runs.

Columbus scored a run in the seventh off Octavio Dotel, who is on a rehab assignment from Detroit.

The Clippers then tied the game when Rohlinger led off the bottom of the ninth by homering off Jose Ortega.
