Rochester Red Wings’ comeback falls short in loss to Columbus

The Rochester Red Wings dropped their 14th consecutive game on Thursday afternoon with a 6-5 loss to the Columbus Clippers at Huntington Park.

Rochester trailed 6-0 after seven innings but did not go away quietly as they plated three in the top of the eighth inning and two in the ninth to make it a one-run game, but Jake Alu struck out swinging with the tying run 90 feet away to end the game.

Riley Adams provided most of the offense for the Red Wings as he drove in four of the five runs with a two-run single and a two-run double. Jake Noll brought home the other run with an RBI double.

Sterling Sharp started for Rochester and surrendered five runs (three earned) over three innings.

The Red Wings will try to snap their skid on Friday with Jefry Rodriguez on the mound. The first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
