Rochester apparently wants to keep playing--9 runs in the first inning! Norfolk and Durham are scoreless in the 8th innings. The Red Wing need Durham to lose to advance to the playoffs.

Durham wins. Rochester only needs a victory to advance to the IL playoffs.

Baxendale is becoming a tease. 9 Ks so far for the day.

How do minor league playoff rosters work? Can Sano/Rosario etc. get promoted for Rochester's playoff run?

The answer is yes and no. I posed this same to the Ft. Myers FO last week about the possibility of Sano/Rosario being send down to Class Hi A where they played a bulk of their 2013 season. So yes they can be sent down to play in playoffs but there is a roster deadline a few weeks beforehand plus it is extremely frowned upon to send prospects back down. Of course there are stipulations mainly due to injuries etc. I did hear that back in ~1995 the Yankees sent several prospects down to face Ft. Myers in the playoffs for "more experience" it was hotly talked about in minor league circuits in a negative manner.
