The Toledo Mud Hens lived and died by the long ball all season long, and on Saturday night, they lived large, defeating Rochester in the series deciding fifth game. Toledo used four long balls to secure the win.

Toledo Wins 3-2, Best of Five
The Toledo Mud Hens kept the Governor's Cup in Toledo after their dominating win over Rochester on Saturday night. Corey Hamman picked up the victory, giving up a run over 5 1/3 innings. But the offense was the story, with four more home runs from the 'Hens. David Espinosa, Dustan Mohr, Josh Phelps and Mike Hessman all went yard as Toledo put the game out of reach right away with six runs in the first two innings. The 'Hens will celebrate their back-to-back title officially on Wednesday with a rally at Fifth Third Field.
