• Joseph 1-2, R, HR, BB, RBI
Corban Joseph’s solo HR in the bottom of the 6th proved to be the difference as the Red Wings took the second game, 4-3, to sweep the de facto doubleheader. Bryan Bonnell got the spot start and let in two runs over three innings. Alberto Baldonado followed but only slightly more effective – one run over two innings. The win went to Gabe Klobosits as the 26-y.o. put up two goose eggs to finish the game. Brandon Snyder led the hit column with two singles while Daniel Palka drove in two of the four runs to pace the Rochester offense. Roster moves: C Jakson Reetz added to 40-man roster, recalled to Washington; UT Adrián Sanchez activated from the 7-Day I.L.

Carson Teel turned in five solid innings of one-run ball on three hits, no walks, and seven K’s. Jhon Romero was even better with two scoreless. Alas, the offense was limited to Nick Banks’s first HR of the season until extras, when Jake Alu delivered the second run on a sac fly after Gage Canning’s one-out single. Diego Moreno let in the free runner in both the 8th and 9th innings for the blown-save-loss.

So did the rest of the lineup with just one runner getting into scoring position and scoring on an infield error. The Blue Rocks hit into three double plays and left on one (1) baserunner.
