• Adams 1-2, SF, 2RBI
That crunching noise you hear just might be the sound of MASN and WaPo Commenters champing at the bit to call up Cade Cavalli after he struck out a season-high 11 batters in a 5-1 Red Wings win. The birthday boy (24 today) won his fifth game while going seven innings for the fourth time. He let in the lone Tides run on three hits and two walks. Francisco Perez and Reed Garrett both struck out two while putting up a goose egg to close out the game. Alex Call and Riley Adams both drove in two while Rochester delivered three sacrifice flies to mask a 2-for-6 night with RISP.
Roster moves: OF Cody Wilson MiLB rehab ended, reassigned from Wilmington.
