RHP Franklyn Kilome gets the ball for his 11th start with the Wings. The former Syracuse Met is coming off one of his best performances as a Red Wing, working five scoreless innings on August 15 against Lehigh Valley on just two hits. This follows four consecutive starts in which he allowed three or more earned runs. Since joining the Wings on July 14, 2022 he has led the club with 47 strikeouts and games started (10).
CF Andrew Stevenson and 1B Adrian Sanchez each collected a pair of hits, including Stevenson launching his 16th homer, a three-run shot in the fifth to give the Wings the lead for good. 3B Jake Alu extended his hit streak to nine games with a fourth-inning double, also his fourth-straight contest with an extra-base hit. Rehabbing LHP MacKenzie Gore made his third rehab start of the year, working four full innings, allowing just one earned on two hits. Four pitchers were used to cover the final five frames, including a hitless ninth by RHP Reed Garrett.
LHP MacKenzie Gore made his third rehab appearance with Rochester last night, working four full innings for the first time since 7/3 with San Diego, a game in which he allowed just one earned in 5.2 innings of work at Dodger Stadium. His one earned run in a Red Wings uniform is the fewest he has allowed in a three-game stretch since 5/17-29, with the last game on 5/29 coming in relief. In three appearances with Rochester, Gore has posted a 1.08 ERA through 8.1 innings.
