-- Keon Broxton (pictured) went deep in his first AAA at-bat and Indianapolis rallied for three runs in the bottom of the 8th to beat Toledo, 5-4.  Starter Clayton Richard had a strong game, giving up no earned runs in seven innings, but his defense let him down in the 6th, leading to four unearned runs.  A walk, a fielder's choice and a bunt thrown away by Tony Sanchez loaded the bases with nobody out.  Richard came back to fan the next two hitters, but Crash Davis Mike Hessman hit a grand slam.  Richard allowed just three hits and the one walk overall, while striking out four.  Broxton finished 2-4, as did Steve Lombardozzi.  Alen Hanson was 1-4 with a double.
