The Rochester Red Wings picked up the victory Saturday night in six and a half innings, 5-1, winning their first game since Tuesday, giving Rochester a chance to split the series in the Sunday finale.
For the fifth consecutive game, Wings bats would plate the first run, this time in the third on an RBI triple by LF Andrew Stevenson. SS Lucius Fox, playing in his first game since June 18, crushed a two-run homer in the next at-bat to push the lead to 3-0.
Stevenson would pick up his second RBI of the game an inning later on a base hit to extend the lead to four. Worcester then cut into the lead in the fifth on a sacrifice fly, which was answered by the Wings in the top half of the sixth on an RBI single by DH Nick Banks.
The score would remain the same until the middle of the seventh inning, when the elements took over, and the game was called early after a rain delay, with a final score of 5-1.
RHP Cade Cavalli took the mound for Rochester to start the game and earned the win (6-4), tossing five scoreless innings and striking out eight Woo Sox batters. Over his past two starts, Cavalli has picked up 19 strikeouts, posting an impressive 14.25 strikeouts per nine innings between the two games. He was relieved by RHP Andres Machado, who pitched a scoreless sixth inning with a punch-out.
Rochester has a chance to split the series, as the two teams will meet again today in the finale. RHP Daniel Ponce de Leon will take the ball for the Wings. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:05 pm.
