Rodriguez led off the game for Toledo (26-12) with a single extending his consecutive game hitting streak to 13 games which paces the International League for the longest active streak.

In the third inning, Rodriguez recorded his second single of the game, and Stewart followed it up with a walk. Jim Adduci then put a ball into center field that scored Rodriguez. The three runs proved to be enough to defeat Charlotte (15-24) by a score of 3-2 for the third consecutive day.

Stewart finished two for three on the afternoon with an RBI and a run scored. Rodriguez ended two for four scoring two runs.

The Mud Hens have now won five games in a row and 10 of their last 11 games dating back to May 6.
