Poor Defense Sinks Clippers in 9-4 to Toledo


COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Toledo MudHens snapped an 11-game losing streak Tuesday at Huntington Park 9-4 due to a rare occurence–poor fielding by the Clippers.

Four errors marked the victory for Toledo, which ended their longest losing streak since 1999.

Toledo held a 3-1 lead into the bottom of the fifth and added two runs due to a throwing error by Clippers shortstop Brian Bixler. A walk and a single in the sixth inning keyed another Mud Hens rally. With runners at second and third, third baseman Jared Goedert threw wildly on a grounder past catcher Lou Arson at home and Jon Weber, who earlier walked in the inning, trotted home.

Carlton Smith relieved starter Jeanmar Gomez and gave up a two-run single to designated hitter Scott Sizemore and an RBI double to second baseman Will Rhymes to move the lead to 9-1 and put the game away in favor of the Mudhens.

Despite the loss, Clippers manager Mike Sarbaugh was praiseworthy of starter Jeanmar Gomez. “His stuff was good and he had good location; he did not fall apart due to poor defense. We rarely play a poor game like this and it was just one of those nights. When you play like this on any night, you just have to stay focused and keep playing”.

Gomez, who is now 6-8 for the year, had gone 3-0 in his last starts with a 1.04 ERA in 26 innings.

Toledo righthander Alfredo Figaro (7-6) was the winning pitcher, throwing six innings of five hit ball.


* Toledo righthanded reliever Jay Sborz and first baseman Jeff Frazier are the Toledo All-Stars for the July 14th Triple AAA game at Lehigh Valley. Sborz has 15 saves for Toledo and made one appearance this year with Detroit. This is his first All-Star game appearance in his professional career.

* First baseman Jeff Frazier leads the IL in doubles with 27. This is his third year with Toledo and this is his first Triple AAA All-Star game. He made the 2006 All-Star game with Lakeland in the Florida State League.

* Toledo manager Larry Parrish became the MudHens winningest manager with 541 wins after Toledo beat Columbus 9-4 Tuesday night. Parrish surpassed former MudHens manager and former major league manager Cal Ermer who guided the Hens to 540 wins from 1978 to 1985. Parrish won back-to-back International League championships with Toledo in 2005 and 2006.

compiled from staff and wire reports

Reds lefthander Matt Maloney was called up to take Aaron Harang’s place in the rotation last night in Flushing, New York. He kept the Reds in the game going 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, walked one and struck out three on 106 total pitches. The only problem was, his mound opponent was the veteran Johan Santana.

The Reds only had one chance to score and that was in the first inning. Brandon Phillips led off with a double. Orlando Cabrera sacrificed him to third but Joey Votto struck out and Scott Rolen popped out.

The Mets got on the board in the 3rd inning when Santana, a .133 hitter fouled off several 2-2 pitchings before turning on a change-up that hit off the right field foul pole for his first career home run.

The Reds maintain their 2-game lead in the NL Central Division race, as the St. Louis Cardinals blew a 9-3 lead in the 9th inning at Colorado. The Cardinals bullpen allowed 9 runs to score and lost 12-9.
