The Red Wings emptied the bullpen Forrest Gump pause again on a Sunday. The good news: The last four pitchers did not give up a run. The bad news: The first four pitchers were strafed for 17 runs (nine earned) on ten hits (3HR) and eight walks as the Tides ripped Rochester, 17-7 in the series finale. Franklyn Kilome took the loss as he coughed up three runs on a two-run HR and three hits total while throwing the first inning. He walked one and struck out one. Derek Hill led the Rochester hit column with a 4-for-4 afternoon but also committed one of the four Red Wings errors.
