Rochester 5 Buffalo 4 (11 inn.)
• Muñoz 3IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 4BB, 2K
• G. Moreno (BS, 5; W, 7-4) 1IP, 1H, 1R, 0ER, 0BB, 1K,

Rochester scored in both extra innings and held off Buffalo in the 11th for a 5-4 win. Roddery Muñoz made his fourth start for the Red Wings but needed 64 pitches to record nine outs, as the 23-y.o. gave up two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two. Six relievers followed the waiver-wire claim, with Gerson Moreno blowing his fifth save by letting in the free runner in the 10th. He would get the cheap win, thanks to Hobie Harris setting the side down in order in the 11th for the save. Travis Blankenhorn led the Rochester hit column with three singles while Richie Martin reached base twice with a double and a walk, and Carter Kieboom lofted a two-run HR that gave the Red Wings a 3-2 lead in the 5th. Roster moves: C Jarrett Gonzalez activated from Development List; LHP Alemao Hernandez reassigned from Harrisburg.

The FredNats erased a 1-0 deficit with four in the 6th and cruised to a 5-1 win over the GreenJackets. The Force™ was strong with Luke Young as he struck out eight for the second time in three starts. The 21-y.o. allowed one run on a home run and walked one over six innings for his fourth win and first quality start. Yohandy Morales singled once, doubled twice, and drove in two while Leandro Emiliani “only” doubled twice and drove in one to power the Fredericksburg offense.
