Rochester Red Wings blown out at Scranton, 14-5

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders hit Matt Tomshaw hard in his Rochester Red Wings debut on Friday evening.

Tomshaw, who signed a minor league contract with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday after being released by the Chicago White Sox organization, surrendered four home runs and seven earned runs before leaving with two outs in the fourth inning. The RailRiders scored nine total runs over the first four innings of an eventual 14-5 thumping.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre slugged a season-high six home runs, an emphatic response to being shut out on Thursday. Andrew Velazquez homered twice, his first two homers since June 26, as part of a 3-for-5, three-RBI night. Armando Alvarez started the scoring with a two-out, three-run shot on a 2-2 count to seize momentum.
