Wings 2B Jake Noll hit a ground-out RBI in the bottom, bringing in CF Cole Freeman to take a 2-1 lead. LHP Sam Clay gave up a two-run homer in the seventh as the Mets went up 3-2 with a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
Given the Buffalo Bisons' loss, the Wings will remain -0.5 games back from first place in the International League after Tuesday’s loss.
Rochester will send RHP Joan Adon to the mound at 1:05 p.m. on Wednesday with a chance to bounce back against the Mets.
