Hens score 4 runs in 4th to edge Bats

By STEVE JUNGA BLADE SPORTS WRITER

Baseball experts will tell you the numbers in the game usually do not lie.

Friday night's 7-4 win by the Mud Hens over Louisville at Fifth Third Field was a good example to the contrary. Through four innings, Bats starting pitcher Travis Wood had struck out nine, walked one, and allowed no earned runs. Meanwhile, his Hens counterpart, fellow lefty Phil Dumatrait, had issued five walks with no strikeouts. The net result of this divergent mound work? Toledo owned a 5-3 lead.

Go figure.

The Mud Hens (1-1) rallied to that fortuitous lead with four unearned runs in the fourth inning. Jeff Frazier reached on a one-out error, Will Rhymes and Robinzon Diaz each singled to load the bases and, after Wood fanned Danny Worth, Clete Thomas pulled a sharp two-run single to right and Brent Dlugach followed with a two-run triple to the gap in right-center.
