Worth proves his in Hens win
Raul Reyes’ first Triple-A home run gave the Herd a two-run lead, but Danny Worth responded in the bottom of the sixth with a grand slam gave the Toledo a 7-6 win to open a four-game series in Toledo.
Chris Schwinden, who took the loss, left with the game tied but the bases loaded and one out for reliever Gustavo Chacin.
Schwinden allowed six earned runs on five hits with four strikeouts and a walk.
Chacin retired Jeff Salazar but surrendered the slam to Worth with two outs in the inning.
Reyes, 24, broke a 3-3 tie with his two-run shot in his seventh game with Buffalo.
Buffalo’s offense struck early against Fu-Te Ni with three runs in the first on Josh Satin’s RBI single and Jesus Feliciano’s two-run double.
However Toledo evened the score in the bottom of the second with a Scott Thorman double, Argenis Diaz RBI single and a two-run home run by Max St. Pierre off of Schwinden.
Jordany Valdespin, who went 2-for-5, doubled for the third consecutive game.
Satin picked up his second RBI on the night and 15th as a Bison on a single in the seventh, scoring Luis Hernandez from third to cut the deficit to one.
Enrique Gonzalez retired Valdespin, Luis Hernandez and Zach Lutz with two strikeouts in a perfect ninth for his 11th save.
Game Notes: With 366 hits, Jesus Feliciano trails Bill Selby by just 12 for the modern-era career Bisons record… Five days ago, Schwinden and Ni dueled to no decisions before Valentino Pascucci’s 11th-inning walk-off homer… The Herd drops to 3-2 on the season series with Toledo.
