John Simms got the spot start and was charged with all four Rochester runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks over four and a 1/3rd innings for his third loss. David Goforth stranded two while finishing the 5th and pitched a scoreless 6th while Austin Adams was perfect in the 7th and 8th to give the offense a chance to come back. They didn’t.
