Toledo 7, Louisville 4

The Associated Press

        TOLEDO, Ohio — Omar Infante drove in two runs for the Toledo Mud Hens as they moved to within 1 1/2 games of first-place Louisville in the International League Western Division with a 7-4 victory over the Bats.

        Toledo went ahead 3-0 in the third inning on back-to-back run-scoring triples by Omar Infante and Andres Torres and an RBI groundout by Jarrod Patterson.

        Singles by Craig Wilson and Infante made it 5-0 in the fourth. The other Toledo runs scored on Derek Nicholson's sacrifice fly in the fifth and Chris Wakeland's ninth home run in the sixth.

        Louisville, the Reds' Triple-A club, scored all its runs in the seventh on two-run homers by Gerald Williams, his second, and Jose Guillen, his first.

        Winning pitcher Andy Van Hekken (5-0) allowed four runs on 10 hits, walked two and struck out four in seven innings. Franklyn German pitched the ninth, giving up one hit, for his third straight save and 12th of the season.

        Jose Acevedo (11-7) took the loss. He lasted 5 1-3 innings, yielding seven runs, four of them earned, on eight hits, with two walks and two strikeouts.

        The game was delayed for 1 hour and 50 minutes by rain.

        The crowd of 10,089, the 21st sellout at Fifth Third Field, enabled the Mud Hens to surpass the 500,000 mark in attendance for the first time. They've drawn 506,004 fans in 67 home dates.
