Last updated on Monday, July 14, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Right-handed pitcher Jimmy Barthmaier went six innings and Steve Pearce and Ryan Mulhern each went two-for-four as the Indianapolis Indians finished the first half of their season with a 4-3 win at home over the Toledo Mudhens.

Barthmaier picked up his third win of the season striking out six, while allowing seven hits and three earned runs in the last game before the Triple-A All-Star break.

The Indians scored their four runs in the first five innings off of Toledo starter Zach Miner, ending a three-game losing streak and bringing Toledo's six-game winning streak to an end.

Indianapolis is 45-and-53, fourth in the international league's west division, 11 games behind leader Louisville.

Indians outfielder Andrew McCutcheon and infielder Brian Bixler will participate in Wednesday's Triple-A All-Star Game in Louisville, while the team will take a three-day break before beginning a four-game series in Columbus on Thursday.
