Red Wings Snuff the Bisons
Rochester N.Y.-- The Rochester Red Wing had a fundamentally sound bounce-back win over the Buffalo Bisons on Wednesday, June 16th. The Red Wings came out strong and went wire-to-wire for the win in a 2-0 shut-out.
There was nothing glamorous in the 1st inning as both teams went down in order.
However, in the second Daniel Palka hit a shot to right field. That not only cleared the fence but also the 43 -foot tall advertising board in the right field. The Red Wings took the lead and never looked back.
Starting pitcher for the Red Wings Sean Nolin, only threw for 2 and 2/3 innings as he was set at a hard pitch count of 40. His last batter faced was Logan Warmoth whom he struck out. Nolin eventually totaled 38 pitches, 5 strikeouts, 1 walk giving up no runs in his appearance.
On the other side of the field, Nate Pearson started for the Bisons. He had a stint with the Toronto Blue Jays back in 2019 and only appeared in 5 games for the Jays in 2020's COVID shortened season. Pearson would throw 6 innings for the Bisons totaling 85 pitches, 3 strikeouts, 2 walks, and giving up both of the Red Wings runs.
The Red Wings' second run was scored by Carter Kieboom after he walked. Jake Noll's double in the 4th drove in Kieboom for the run.
The Red Wings Bullpen had a great showing as they only allowed 2 total hits against them. One from Christian Colon in the 4th and another from George Springing in the 9th. Springer is currently on a rehab assignment from the Blue Jays and has only totaled one hit in his last 3 games.
Kyle Lobstein was awarded the win for the Red Wings in his 3 innings of work he tallied 4 strikeouts and 38 total pitches. Dakota Bacus was also awarded the save for the Wings. Nate Pearson got the loss for the Bisons.
