The Red Wings blew a 3-0 lead then scratched their way back to a 5-4 lead only to give it away in the bottom of the 9th, 6-5 to the Mets. Tommy Romero went the first three innings, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out two. Gerson Moreno, who was inexplicably named the I.L.’s best reliever, coughed up two in the bottom of the 9th for his fifth loss and seventh blown save. Brady Lindlsy and Luis García both had three singles while Frankie Tostado hit his first AAA homer for Rochester’s sole extra-base hit on the night. Roster moves: LHP Joe La Sorsa optioned from Washington.

Harrisburg ended a seven-game losing streak while collecting four extra-base hits in a 6-4 victory over Altoona. Dustin Saenz turned in five innings of one-run ball on four hits, no walks, and three whiffs to earn his fourth AA win. Brady House hit his first AA homer to start the scoring with a two-run shot in the 2nd while J.T. Arruda tripled in two in the 9th for a pair of insurance runs that turned out to be needed as Malvin Peña gave them back in the bottom of the 9th. James Wood (triple) and Trey Lipscomb (homer) also had long hits as the Sens totaled eight hits total on the night and left on just four baserunners.
