STAFF REPORTS


The Red Wings offense provided plenty of fireworks as Rochester pounded the Scranton/WB RailRiders, 11-1, on America's 243rd birthday.
Jake Cave's four base hits led the Wings 20-hit attack. He also chipped in a three RBI and two runs scored. Everyone in the Wings lineup had at least one hit and SEVEN had multi-hit nights.
The top three in the Wings order - Nick GordonDrew Maggi and Cave - went a combined 10-for-16 with three of the club's four extra-base hits, 8 RBI and 7 runs scored.
The trio had back-to-back-to-back RBI hits in a six-run second inning that put the Wings up 7-0. Rochester never looked back as Sean Poppen allowed just one run over seven sparkling innings to pick up the win and move to 5-0 with the Wings and a 2.20 ERA.
With the win the Wings moved back to .500 on the year at 42-42 for the first time since being 1-1.
The Wings and RailRiders will play a doubleheader on Friday with first pitch of Game One at 5:05 pm.
