Rochester Red Wings rally to beat Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 8-7

The Red Wings scored four in the eighth and three in the ninth to storm from behind and snap their 11-game losing streak with an 8-7 win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders Sunday afternoon.

Trailing 7-1 in the eighth inning, Victor Robles started the comeback with a solo home run. Five batters later, Alex Dunlap hit a two-out, three-run home run to make it 7-5.

The Wings plated the winning three runs in the ninth inning without the benefit of a base hit. Scranton reliever Brooks Kriske walked the first five batters he faced as the Wings tied the game.

Former Red Wing Nick Goody took over on the mound and with one out and Donovan Casey at bat, uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Daniel Palka to score with the winning run.

The Red Wings return to Frontier Field on Tuesday night to open a series against the Buffalo Bisons.
