Toledo 7 Columbus 6
Things haven’t gone well for Virgil Vasquez since his spot start. Once again he was roughed up, this time for 5 runs on 4 walks and 5 hits with only 2 K’s in 5 innings. Mike hessman hit a grand slam, his 12th homer of the year. Chris Shelton reached base 5 times with a single, a double, and 3 walks. The batting average (273) and OBP (416) continue to climb but the slugging just isn’t there (398). Sounds kind of like Detroit’s current first sacker.
