Rochester Red Wings Story Line
The Red Wings dropped a back-and-forth contest in the series finale against Scranton/WB, when the RailRiders surged back to score four in the 8th to win the Sunday matchup, 8-6. 2B DARREN BAKER picked up a two-hit game in the loss, logging a double in what was his 15th multi-hit game of the season.
1B MATT ADAMS launched his team-leading seventh homer of the year, and 3B JAKE ALU who came in as a defensive substitution, went 1-for-2 with a long ball of his own. Despite going hitless, SS JETER DOWNS walked three times, collected an RBI, and scored a run Sunday afternoon.
Things to be on the lookout for
Sunday's matchup featured five pitch clock violations including two from Red Wings' pitchers (Adon, Moreno). Sunday's game time of two hours 59 minutes ranks as the third longest 9-inning game this season for Rochester and their second-longest game away from Innovative Field.
1B MATT ADAMS logged his team-leading seventh homer of the year in the series finale, going 1-for-5. The lefty has hit all seven homers this year on the road, not having hit one at home.
2B DARREN BAKER recorded another multi-hit game on Sunday afternoon against Scranton/WB. The lefty second baseman bat collected two hits and a run in his four at-bats and was the only player for Rochester with a multi-hit performance. This was Baker's 15th multi-hit game this season, his fourth in the series at SWB.
