Buffalo stampeded Rochester for three runs in the top of the 2nd, but the Red Wings answered with four in the bottom half, then added one more in the 3rd and 4th innings to take their third straight, 6-3. Jake Irvin turned in a serviceable start of the aforementioned three runs on six hits and one walk over five innings. He fanned two. Matt Cronin (2IP), Gerson Moreno (1IP), and Andres Machado combined for four scoreless innings of relief. Darren Baker led the Rochester hit parade with two singles and a double, followed by Franklin Barreto and Kevin Plawecki, who each went 2-for-4 with a run, double, and an RBI.

Mitchell Parker was manhandled again, gnawed for five runs on four hits (two HR) and four walks over three-plus innings. He struck out three. Harrsiburg scored two in the 5th, two in the 7th, and one in the 9th to send it to extras.

Like the Woodpeckers’ cart on the warning track, FredNats remain stuck in the mud as they dropped their fourth straight game, 8-2. Jarlin Susana almost made it through the 4th, lifted after 70 pitches (43 for strikes) with two out. He walked three and struck out six, giving up a double in the 2nd inning. Jose Atencio wobbled while getting the last out of the 4th but fell in the 5th as Fayetteville got six of seven batters on base, capped by a two-run triple.
Officially, the wind was blowing out to LF at 8 m.p.h. but Fredericksburg added 17 gusts. Brady House was the only FredNats batter not to strike out, as reached base three times with a double and two walks. Murphy Stehly pinch-ran for him after a 46-minute rain delay and scored on balk. Elijah Green delivered the second and final run on an RBI single.
