TOOTIN' HIS OWN BLANKENHORN: DH TRAVIS BLANKENHORN launched his second home run of the season tonight, first at Innovative Field this year...the homer was a two-run shot that came off the bat at 91.7 MPH and traveled 336 feet...Blankenhorn finished the game 3-for-4 with a homer, double, and two RBI, marking his first game with multiple extra-base hits since 8/10/2023 vs. LHV...

He has now collected an extra-base hit in three out of the last four games and a hit in eight of the last nine.

The homer marks both the shortest distance and lowest exit velocity on a home run by a Red Wing over the last two seasons.

I TRIPLE DOG DARREN YOU: 2B DARREN BAKER led off the third inning with a line drive triple, the Red Wings' second three-bagger of the season and Baker's first since 8/24/2023 against Worcester...the lefty finished the game with a 1-for-5 line with a run scored, and has now reached base in six consecutive games...

Across eight games in April, Baker is hitting .310 (9-for-29) with six RBI, five runs scored, and four stolen bases.

NO, YOU ADON'T: RHP JOAN ADON made the start on the mound for the Red Wings tonight and tossed 5.0 scoreless innings on just two hits while striking out six and walking three...this marks the first scoreless start of at least 5.0 innings by a Rochester pitcher since RHP Cory Abbott on 9/12/2023 vs. LHV, and the first time Adon has done so since 8/25/2023 at Miami, with Washington (6.0 IP)...

5.0 innings pitched ties RHP JACKSON RUTLEDGE (3/31 at SYR) for most by a Wings starter this season.

(KIE)BOOM, (KIE)BOOM, POW: 3B CARTER KIEBOOM reached base three times tonight, going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks...he has now reached safely in each of the 10 games he has appeared in this season, the longest active on-base streak on the team...he posts an on-base percentage of .488 this season, best on the team and eighth-best in the International League.

THEY CALL ME ZERO: The Rochester Red Wings shut out the Toledo Mud Hens on Tuesday night, their first since 6/18/2023 vs. SWB...four Wings pitchers combined to hold the Mud Hens offense to just five hits, tied for the fewest pitchers used in a shutout since 7/10/2022 at LHV (3 pitchers)...

Wings pitchers combined to strike out 11 batters in the contest, the sixth time this season they have struck out double-digit batters.


AKIL BADDOUBLE: CF AKIL BADDOO led the charge on offense for the Toledo Mud Hens on Tuesday, going 1-for-4 with a double for the team's only extra-base hit...this marks his third-straight game with an extra-base hit and extended his hitting streak to five games...

Baddoo is hitting .289 (11-for-38) in April with a slash line of .386/.553/.939, leading the Mud Hens in triples (2) while ranking fourth on the team in total bases (21) since the beginning of the month.
