ROCHESTER 14, NORFOLK 3
Deibinson Romero and Chris Parmelee led the offense tonight, each homering. Eduardo Escobar delivered 2 doubles. The Red Wings offense delivered 14 total hits. A good night!

Virgil Vasquez turned in a quality start, going 6 innings and giving up 2 runs on 4 hits, striking out 4 and walking 1. Shairon Martis went the other 3 innings, giving up a run on 2 hits.

NEW BRITAIN 9, READING 3
Miguel Sano returned to the lineup after a . . . hiatus, we'll call it. He helped the Rock Cats to end an ugly losing streak. He was 1-for-3 with 2 RBIs, 2 Ks, and 2 BBs. For my take on Sano's suspension, click here. Eddie Rosario hit his 3rd AA homer, and his 12th double, leading the offense.

Kyle Davies earned his first Rock Cats win, going 7 innings of 1-run baseball. Dakota Watts and Jose Gonzalez finished the game.
