Top pitching prospect Brad Lincoln was perfect through 5 innings before Toledo shortstop Brent Dlugach hit a three-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning to lead the Toledo Mudhens to a 3-0 win on Monday afternoon at Fifth Third Field.
Mud Hens starter Enrique Gonzalez stifled the Indians, throwing a complete game shutout. Gonzalez limited the Indians to just two hits.
Lincoln (7.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 10 SO) was impressive throwing a career high ten strike outs in the game and had great control walking just one batter.
Lincoln is pushing for a June callup to the majors.
The Indians fell to 20-18 on the season.
