Tickets for the Rochester Red Wings first two playoff games will be on sale Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at the Frontier Field ticket office, by phone or online.
While Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, this year, it means the beginning of playoff season for the Rochester Red Wings. For the first time since 2006, the Wings have made it to the playoffs, clinching the Wild Card spot with a win over the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Railriders.
Rochester brought home a 13-3 victory Monday. That win, combined with a 1-0 loss by the Norfolk Tide means it is on to the playoffs.
The Wings will face the Pawtucket Red Sox in the first round. Games one and two will be in Rochester Wednesday and Thursday nights.
Games One and Two of the International League Governors' Cup Playoffs first round will be on Wednesday and Thursday, September 4 and 5 at 7:05 p.m. at Frontier Field. Tickets went on sale after Monday's game until 6 p.m. at the Frontier Field Ticket Office, and by phone at (585) 423-WING (9464). Season seat holders have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to purchase their seats for the September 4 and 5 home games.
