Wings Drop Series Opener to Bisons, 5-4, Tuesday
The Red Wings dropped the opener of a week-long series with the Buffalo Bisons, 5-4, Tuesday night at Frontier Field.
The Wings got homers from Jake Noll (15) and Raudy Read (3) in the defeat.
The turning point of the game came in the top of the eighth when Gregory Polanco ripped a two-run home run to make it 4-2 Buffalo.
The Wings crept back to within a run on Victor Robles' RBI single in the bottom of the eighth, but the Bisons pushed the lead back to two on an RBI hit from Forrest Wall in the ninth.
Read's blast - a 449-foot solo shot to left field - trimmed the lead to one.
Luis Reyes made the start for Rochester and went six innings allowing two runs on seven hits and three walks. He struck out four over his 99-pitch performance.
