Rochester 7 Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 6
• Je. Rodriguez 2⅔ IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 1BB, 3K, WP
• Fry (W, 3-0) 1⅓ IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 1K, 2-0 IR-S
• Stevenson 3-5, 2R, 2B(20), HR(5), 2RBI
• Ad. Sanchez 3-5, 3RBI
• Vargas 1-4, R, 2RBI
Andrew Stevenson homered to lead off the 9th and give the Red Wings a 7-4 lead. That turned out to be pivotal as the RailRiders rallied for two runs with two outs and had the tying and winning runs aboard before Jordan Weems induced a flyball to Stevenson to end it and stumble to a 7-6 win. Jefry Rodriguez led the parade of relievers and labored through two and 2/3rds innings, letting in two runs on five hits and a walk. Jace Fry cleaned up his mess and pitched another inning to pick up the win. Stevenson, Adrián Sanchez, and Ildemaro Vargas would account for all seven Rochester hits and RBIs.
Roster moves: RHPs Cory Abbott, Joan Adon (27th man); Andres Machado optioned from Washington.
