Jose Tabata doubled to begin the game and went 1-for-4.

Two runs in the bottom of the 7th by the Mud Hens broke a 2-2 tie, and the Hens hung on for the win at Fifth Third Field in Toledo, OH.  The Indians out-hit the Mud Hens 8-7, but they couldn't come up with any runs after the 1st inning.  Tribe starter Ross Ohlendorf made his third rehab start and took the loss, though he bested his previous outing by going into the 7th inning and by throwing 102 pitches (60 strikes).

The game began with a Tribe rally.  Jose Tabata, in right field tonight, led off with a double to the right field wall.  2B Jordy Mercer followed with a double down the right field line, driving Tabata in from second base.  LF John Bowker's ground out let Mercer advance to third base, then Mercer scored when 3B Josh Harrison also doubled into right field.  DH Jeff Clement walked, putting two runners on first, but a ground out ended the inning.
