The rains that have plagued the East Coast since Saturday didn’t go far enough inland to spare Rochester its 80th loss, 5-1 courtesy of Indianapolis. Mitchell Parker tossed four scoreless innings in his organization-leading 26th start without issuing a walk (keeping him tied with Tommy Romero for the most free passes) and striking out four to get him to 150 in 124IP (10.89/9IP).
The loss went to Lucas Knowles, who gave up three in his first inning of work and two in the 8th on his tenth big fly allowed. The 25-y.o. southpaw walked none and struck out four while giving up six hit total over three-plus innings. Paul Witt mopped up in the 8th, retiring three of four batters faced.
Matt Adams drove in Jack Dunn with an RBI single in the 4th to keep the Red Wings 2023 shutout tally at two, which is pretty impressive for a team that was 19th on offense in the 20-team I.L. Jordy Barley singled twice while Darren Baker singled once to round out the six-single hit column. Rochester was 1-for-6 with RISP and left on six baserunners.
