Comeback falls short
The Bisons’ Andy Green helped to pull the Herd to within one run of the Toledo Mud Hens when he hit his second home run of the season in the ninth inning. Unfortunately it was not enough as the Herd ultimately fell to the Mud Hens 5-4.
Mike Hessman would homer for the third time in three games against his former team. His two run blast to center field now puts his total for home runs at 17 for the season, three more than Dan Johnson of Durham. Hessman added two RBI to bring his total for the season to 53 which is ten more than second ranked Pedro Alvarez of Indianapolis.
Entering the sixth inning the game tied at three, Jeff Frazier hit a solo home run off Toby Stoner. Stoner (3-5) went 5.2 innings and allowed six hits and four earned runs was saddled with the loss.
Jesus Feliciano went 2-4 and increased his league high batting average to an astonishing .383. His average is a remarkable 60 points higher than any other player in the International League. The Herd will finish their four game series with the Mud Hens Sunday at 1:05 p.m. when right hander Dylan Owen (1-0, 3.75 ERA) retuns to the mound.
