Mike Hessman started the rally with a single. After Ben Guez walked, McCann drove in both runners with a single. The one-out grounder into center field made it 2-1.

Martinez then followed that up with a two-out solo home run to center field that gave Toledo a 3-1 lead.

But the Indians tied it back up at 3 with two runs in the sixth inning.

Toledo fell behind 1-0 in the first when Indianapolis scored on a fielder's choice.
