Rochester Red Wings, 28-33, 7th place I.L. East, 11GB – 62-72 Overall
This week is the final homestand for the Red Wings, who still haven’t been eliminated yet from the second half race. As noted in the comments, it seems likely that Jackson Rutledge may be called up this week to make a start or two, though he was listed as Friday’s probable in Sunday’s press notes. Then again, Tommy Romero was also supposed to start today by those same notes and appeared in relief on Sunday.
Harrisburg Senators, 25-38, 6th place E.L. Southwest, 12GB – 56-75 Overall
Harrisburg is on a five-game losing streak and were eliminated from playoff contention last week. Bowie comes to the City Island for the final series of 2023, trailing the second-half leader Richmond by three games. With some “help” from the Sens, the BaySox could sneak into the playoffs if the Seawolves win both halves and the Flying Squirrels finish third.
