For the second time in three games, the Red Wings outslugged the Indians, winning 7-4 in extras. Daniel Mengden got the start and gave back a 3-0 lead with three runs allowed on three hits and a walk over three and a 1/3rd innings, though a dishonorable mention goes to Odalvi Javier for three walks and a balk while letting in both inherited runners while finishing the 4th.
Rochester got the run back in the top of the 5th on a bases-loaded, nobody-out double play and held the 4-3 lead until the bottom of the 9th when a twin-killing turned into a Little League HR with errors by Jeter Downs on the relay and Lindsly chasing down Downs’s errant throw and then Lindsly throwing it past third base. That hung a blown save on Junior Fernández and sent the game into extras.
Following a pair of ejections in the 10th, the Red Wings took care of business in the 11th as Derek Hill tripled in the free runner and Matt Adams launched his 17th HR to take a 7-4 lead. Orlando Ribalta picked up the win in his AAA debut with two scoreless inning, allowing an infield single and issuing two intentional walks.
