Toledo, OH- The Mud Hensâ?? offense came alive Tuesday night in a 12-4 win over the Bulls.
Toledo scored eight runs in the first two innings, a couple of those thanks in part to Eugenio Suarez. The short stop was 3-for-4 at the plate, including his second home run since his call up to Toledo one week ago.
Ezequiel Carrera and Luis Exposito each had two hits including a sixth-inning opposite-field home run from Exposito. It was his third blast of the year, which gave the Hens their final 12-4 lead.
Hens starting pitcher Robbie Ray struggled on the mound in his first game back with Toledo since being promoted to Detroit.
Toledo (24-28) and Durham (31-22) return to action Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m.
Ray lasted just 3.1 innings allowing three runs on four hits. Ray walked four and struck out four.
