The Mud Hens won two in one day as they pulled of a sweep over the Clippers. Game one saw Erick Almonte go two for three with a double, three RBIs and two runs in a 5-4 win. Andres Torres went four for four with a double, two triples and two runs. Anastacio Martinez gave up a hit with two walks and a strikeout in 1 2/3 innings of shutout relief.
Game two was a 6-4 Mud Hens win. Jason Perry belted a two run homer while Henry Mateo went two for three with a walk and two runs. Vic Darensbourg improved to 6-2 and he gave up one hit with four strikeouts in two innings of shutout relief.
Brent Clevlen did it again and this time he belted a two run game winning homer in the top of the tenth inning for the Hens. It was Clevlen’s only hit of the game, but it was a big one in the 4-2 win. Jack Hannahan had a solid game and he went three for four with two doubles, a run and an RBI.
Dennis Tankersley gave the Hens seven solid innings. He gave up two runs on eight hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Vic Darensbourg picked up the win and he improved to 5-1 with a shutout ninth inning.
In just his second game back to the Mud Hens, Brent Clevlen put together a nice day at the plate. He went three for five with a double, a homerun, three RBIs and two runs. Henry Mateo also had a nice game and he went three for five with two runs in the 8-7 win.
Ron Chiavacci had a tough time and he gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings in his start. Vic Darensbourg improved to 4-1 with the win and he got two batters out.
The Mud Hens came back from a 7-0 deficit to beat Louisville and they had some late inning heroics to get it done. Mike Hessman drove home Ryan Rayburn in the bottom of the ninth to send the game into extra frames while David Espinosa scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the tenth to win it. Dane Sardinha had a nice day at the plate and he went two for five with a double and three RBIs.
Virgil Vasquez was hit hard in the early parts of this game and he gave up seven runs in five innings. You see this happen sometime. A pitcher will tear it up in the minors, struggle in the majors and then when he gets sent back down, he struggles some more. Hopefully Vasquez can get back on track in his next start.
Vic Darensbourg got it done in relief and he picked up the win. He gave up just two hits and a walk with three strikeouts in three innings.
A solid start by Yorman Bazardo went to waste today as the pen gave up the tying run in the eighth and then lost when they gave up two runs in the eleventh. Bazardo gave up one unearned run on three hits and a walk with three strikeouts in six innings. That’s two nice starts in a row for the big right hander.
Tim Byrdak gave up the tying run in the eighth and then Jason Karnuth lost it when he gave up a two run homer in the bottom of the eleventh. Sandwiched between those two were two shutout innings by Vic Darensbourg.
At the plate, Timo Perez extended his hitting streak to eighteen games with a solid two for four game. Andrew Graham went two for two with an RBI and a run in the 4-2 loss.
The Mud Hens got just enough offense to top the Durham Bulls 5-4. Ryan Rayburn led the way with a two run homer and Ramon Santiago doubled twice, scored a run and drove in one.
Ron Chiavacci had a tough time in his start. He gave up four runs on six hits and one walk with six strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. Vic Darensbourg picked up the win and Aquilino Lopez picked up his third save of the season.
