BUFFALO 2, TOLEDO 1 (10 innings): In the top of the 10th, Dustin Martin led off with a line-drive double.

After Justin Hampson surrendered a solo homer to Brad Eldred to tie the score at 1, Beato -- still on a major league rehab assignment -- tossed three scoreless innings. Beato (2-0) earned the win.

After reliever Toru Murata bottom half, the Aeros tied the score in the fifth. Matt Lawson doubled against Rodriguez to start the frame. With one out, he stole third and came home when catcher Kai Gronauer’s throw skipped past Jefry Marte and rolled into left field. The run proved pivotal when play was halted in the sixth.
