While the Red Wings were able to score in four consecutive innings, it wasn’t enough to overcome the Clippers’ five-run 3rd as they dropped their 15th straight, 8-5. Jefry Rodriguez was the opener and the loser as Columbus lit him up for three runs on three hits and three walks over two innings. Carson Teel was the most effective of the five relievers to follow, putting on two baserunners in two scoreless innings. John Nogowski doubled, homered, and drove in three while Andrew Stevenson had two safeties to lead Rochester’s seven-hit, four-walk offense.
Roster moves: UT Dee Strange-Gordon, RHP Sterling Sharp released; LHP Josh Rogers outrighted from Washington, elected free agency; RHP Connor Sadzeck assigned from Washington.

Richard Guasch took the loss, giving up two runs on four hits and a walk over three innings of relief. Yasel Antuna singled, walked, homered, and drove in two while Leandro Emiliani singled, doubled, walked, and drove in one to pace the Wilmington offense.

• Pettigrew 2-4, 2R, BB, 2-2B, RBI

Despite a monster debut from James Wood, who went 4-for-6 with a HR and three RBI, Fredericksburg fell in extras, 10-9. Karlo Seijas returned to the rotation and picked up where he left off, digging a 6-0 hole after two innings and needing 76 pitches to get 12 outs as gave up six hits, walked four, and struck out four. The FredNats led twice in the late innings – 8-7 after 7½ and 9-8 after 9½ – but Riggs Threadgill hit a batter, walked a batter, and threw a wild pitch before giving up the two-out single for the walk-off loss.
