The Rochester Red Wings extended their win streak to nine games with a 7-4 victory over the Worcester Red Sox on Sunday afternoon at Polar Park.

However, they scored a run on a passed ball to tie the game and forced extra innings. The Red Wings outscored Worcester 4-1 in the extra frame to secure the victory.
The Red Sox opened the scoring in the second with a pair of runs on an RBI fielder’s choice and a sacrifice fly.

In the ninth, Chris Herrmann scored the game-tying run on a passed ball with two outs to tie the game.
Young started the four-run 10th with an RBI single to center. Richard Urena followed that with an RBI single to right. Right after that, Taylor Gushue launched a sacrifice fly to right to make it 6-3. Young capped off the inning by scoring on a wild pitch. In the bottom of the 10th, Worcester was able to add a run on an RBI single, but that was all they could manage.
Jackson Tetreault got the start for Rochester and gave up a pair of unearned runs over 3.1 innings.
The Red Wings will get the day off Monday before they begin a six-game series with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs at Frontier Field.
