Boesch leads Hens over Indianapolis

By JOHN WAGNER BLADE SPORTS WRITER

Happy birthday, Brennan Boesch.

The Mud Hen rightfielder celebrated his 25th birthday in style yesterday, slamming a home run and making a highlight-quality catch to propel the Hens to a 6-3 win over Indianapolis at Fifth Third Field. The 6-4, 235-pounder Boesch quickly earned a spot on the highlight reels by making a fine catch on a ball hit by the Indians’ Jose Tabata to start the game. The right-handed hitting Tabata stroked a curving liner towards the right-field line that Boesch snared with a dive. “I played against Jose last year [in Double-A], and I know he likes to go to right field quite a bit,” Boesch said. “I was on my toes on the first pitch, knowing that you have to be especially [ready] for a guy that goes the other way. “I got a good jump on the ball, and that helped me make the catch.”

In the third Boesch followed RBI singles by Will Rhymes and Brent Dlugach by slamming a three-run homer to cap a five-run Mud Hen rally.
