Jeremy Johnson improved to 4-0 on the season with a nice start in the Hens 7-1 win over Indianapolis. He gave up one run on four hits with four strikeouts in seven innings of work.
Mike Hessman hit his eighth homer of the season and Jeff Larish belted his seventh. That’s quite a one/two punch with both of the guys in the lineup. Michael Hollimon also had a nice game and he homered and drove in a pair.

Jeremy Johnson picked up the win in relief but it was more because he gave up the tying run in the seventh inning then saw Erie come back and win it. Jonathan Connolly had a nice start and he gave up two runs on seven hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings.
Three different Mud Hens pitchers combined to give up five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning as they lost to Norfolk 5-2. Corey Hamman took the loss but he had a solid outing. He gave up just one run on five hits with a strikeout in six innings. Jeremy Johnson was the one who got tagged with the most damage as he was credited with three of the five runs. Joel Zumaya made his first rehab appearance. He gave up a hit and struck out one in 2/3 of an inning.
Timo Perez provided the offense with a two run homer, his thirteenth of the season. Andres Torres went two for three with a walk.
Jeremy Johnson gave up three runs in the ninth inning but all it did was turn a comfortable 5-1 lead into a nail biting 5-4 win. Yorman Bazardo picked up the win with an excellent start. He gave up one run on five hits and one walk with three strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings and the win pushed his record to 9-5.
Henry Mateo was the hitting star in the win. He went two for four with a double, a solo homerun and two runs scored.
The Mud Hens had a tough time at the plate and they pushed across just two runs on five hits in a 4-2 loss to Pawtucket. Timo Perez had two of those hits and he drove in both runs with a two run homer in the first inning.
Jeremy Johnson took the loss and he fell to 3-3. He gave up one run on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings. Fernando Rodney threw a shutout inning of relief in his rehab stint. He walked one and struck out two.
Brent Clevelen singled home Henry Mateo in the bottom of the tenth inning to win it for the Hens. It was Clevelen’s second hit of the game and David Espinosa also had two hits and he drove in a run.
A pretty good start by Dennis Tankersley almost went to waste. He gave up one run on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings. Jeremy Johnson picked up the win with a shutout tenth inning.
Ian Ostlund gave up three late runs to the Knights but Jeremy Johnson came in and pitched the ninth to stop the damage and help the Hens hold on for the win. Zach Miner picked up his first minor league win with a solid start. He gave up two runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.
Ramon Santiago had three stolen bases and ironically they were his first three of the season. Mike Hessman went two for three with a homerun and two RBIs.
Christopher Maples singled home David Espinosa in the bottom of the eleventh to win it for the Mud Hens. Maples finished two for five with a triple, two RBIs and a run. Espinosa finished with two runs.
Yorman Bazardo was roughed up in the Mud Hens win but the pen and hitters picked him up. He gave up four runs in five innings and Jeremy Johnson picked up the win with a shutout eleventh.
You have to feel for Ron Chiavacci. He gave up just one run on five hits with five strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings only to see the pen blow the game in the ninth and lose it in the tenth. Jason Karnuth gave up the two ninth inning runs to send the game into extra frames before Jeremy Johnson took the loss when he gave up a run in the tenth.
Mike Hessman was a perfect three for three and he scored one run. Dane Sardinha only had one hit, but it was a two run shot in the third inning.
The Mud Hens played two today, at least sort of because yesterdays game was suspended after four innings. Yorman Bazardo hopefully got back on track with a decent start and he gave up two runs on four hits with three strikeouts in four innings (he pitched yesterday). Jeremy Johnson picked up the win with three solid innings in which he gave up a single run and struck out four and Aquillino Lopez got the final batter out for his second save of the season. Jack Hannahan went two for four with a double, a run and two RBIs. Ryan Rayburn drove in two runs and Chris Shelton had two hits and two runs.
The second game didn’t go as well as the Bulls shut out the Hens on five hits. Five different Mud Hens singled in a pretty poor hitting game. Just as bad, Zach Miner was shelled and he dropped to 0-2. He gave up seven runs on seven hits and three walks in just 1 1/3 innings and he’s pitching himself out of a chance to replace the struggling Chad Durbin up with the Tigers.
