Rochester Red Wings blow late lead in loss to Worcester

The Worcester Red Sox put together a ninth inning, two-run rally to beat the Red Wings, 4-3, Wednesday night at Frontier Field.

Nick Banks gave the Wings the 3-2 lead with a solo homer in the bottom of the eighth inning, but Jhonny Pereda’s one-out, two-run double in the top of the ninth inning off Aaron Barrett sent the Woo Sox to the win.

Rochester jumped in front on the very first pitch they saw. Victor Robles ripped a triple to the left-centerfield gap and scored when the throw to third skipped into the visitor’s dugout.

A Donovan Casey sac fly in the sixth inning staked the Wings to a 2-0 lead.

The Woo Sox would tie the game in the seventh on a two-run homer from Johan Mieses off Sterling Sharp.

Sharp came on in relief of Jefry Rodriguez and went five innings allowing just the two runs on three hits. Rodriguez went three scoreless innings.

Game three of the series is Thursday night at Frontier Field.
