Lehigh Valley Weekend Game Report

5/08/09– After an eight plus hour bus trip into the early hours of the morning, the ‘Pigs jumped out early on Toledo with a RBI single by Mike Cervenak in the first and a two run double in the second by Jason Ellison to take an early 3-0 lead over the Mudhens.  That is when the homerun ball came back to haunt Drew Carpenter once again, who, after leaving in the sixth had given up two more homers, accounting for a 4-3 Toledo lead. Carpenters’ line was 6IP 3H 4ER 4BB 6K. Toledo took that lead into the ninth when the ‘Pigs scored two on an RBI double by Rich Thompson and a bases loaded walk by Andy Tracy gave the ‘Pigs the 5-4 win. Mike Koplove threw two strong innings to get the win, with  Pablo Ozuna,  Rich Thompson and Jason Ellison contributing multi hit games. Continue reading Lehigh Valley Weekend Game Report
