With yesterday’s 3-2, extra-inning loss to Columbus, the Wings have set a new franchise record, collecting their 13th consecutive loss. RHP Daniel Ponce de Leon tossed five innings while allowing just two earned runs on three hits in his second Wings start.
Rochester outhit the Clippers, 8-6, in the loss as 2B Jake Noll, 1B John Nogowski, and SS Jecksson Flores all logged multi-hit performances, all of the two-hit variety.
LHP Alberto Baldonado, RHP Reed Garrett, LHP Luis Avilan, and RHP Mason Thompson all came on in relief, holding Columbus to just one run across 4.2 innings, scattering three hits.
RHP Sterling Sharp will get the nod for the Wings this afternoon which Columbus LHP Logan Allen will oppose.
