Veterans Matt Adams and Wilson Garcia both homered twice as Rochester put up its first “W” of ’23 with an 11-4 smackdown of Syracuse. Cory “Don’t Call Me Roger” Abbott held the Mets to three runs on five hits (two HR) and one walk over five innings to get the win. Travis Blankenhorn also homered as he led the Red Wings’ 12-hit parade with three hits, followed by Adams, Garcia, Chad Pinder, and Darren Baker.

Pitchers – Alston, Cate, Carillo, Cuevas, Guash, Kilome, Lee, Parker, Peguero, Pena, Ribalta, Romero, Rutledge, Schaller, Troop, and Willingham.
Catchers – Lindsly, Millas, and Gonzales.
Infielders – Arruda, Cluff, Frizzell, Meregildo, Sanchez, and Valera.
Outfielders – Antuna, Connell, Harris, and Upshaw.
Wilmington Blue Rocks
Wilmington will start with a grueling 45-minute road trip to Aberdeen to start the season today, tomorrow, and Saturday. Like Harrisburg, an official roster has yet to be seen.
Fredericksburg Blue Rocks
The FredNats begin tomorrow night with three against the Hillcats. No roster yet, but perhaps one of our commenters was at last night’s “Meet the Team” banquet.
As was the case a year ago, if/when I receive the official releases, I’ll try to update this space.
UPDATE – ROSTERS ARE IN!
All three teams have now released the Opening Day rosters:
