TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- James Loney drove in JaCoby Jones with a sacrifice fly in the third inning, leading the Toledo Mud Hens to a 6-4 win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs on Sunday.

The sacrifice fly by Loney came in the midst of a four-run inning and gave the Mud Hens a 3-2 lead. Later in the inning, Bryan Holaday hit an RBI single, driving in Efren Navarro.

Following the big inning, the IronPigs cut into the deficit in the fifth inning when J.P. Crawford hit an RBI single, driving in Taylor Featherston.

The Mud Hens later tacked on two runs in the sixth when Jason Krizan hit an RBI triple and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Argenis Diaz to secure the victory.

Lehigh Valley saw its comeback attempt come up short after Nick Williams hit a solo home run in the eighth inning to cut the Toledo lead to 6-4.

Lehigh Valley missed a scoring opportunity in the seventh, when Rhys Hoskins flew out with the bases loaded to end the inning.

Toledo right-hander Warwick Saupold (1-0) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing three runs on five hits over six innings. Opposing starter Ricardo Pinto (2-2) took the loss in the International League game after giving up four runs and four hits over five innings.
