The Red Wings pounded out a season-high 15 hits Wednesday as they finished off the three-game sweep of Scranton/WB with a 7-6 win at Frontier Field. It is the Wings’ first three-game sweep of Scranton/WB since Jul. 19-20, 2004 and their first three-game sweep against any IL team since August, 2008 vs. LHV. Rochester has now beaten Scranton/WB in 6 straight games dating back to last season. Prior to this streak, the Wings had gone just 29-64 against the RailRiders over the previous 5-plus seasons.

In Tuesday’s twinbill, 11 different Wings picked up a hit and 9 collected an RBI. In Wednesday’s finale, 8 of 9 starters recorded at least one hit and six had multi-hit nights led by Chris Parmelee’s three knocks. Five of the 15 hits went for extra-bases (all doubles) after the Wings had just 4 extra-base hits in their first four games. As a team, Rochester is now hitting a league-best .318.

After starter Scott Diamond allowed 4 runs in 3 innings, the Wings bullpen allowed just 2 unearned runs the rest of the way. Yohan Pino and Aaron Thompson did the heavy lifting as each tossed 2.1 innings with 5 combined strikeouts. Brooks Raley earned just his second career save by striking out two RailRiders looking in the 9th.

Deibinson Romero (1-for-4; R, 2 RBI, BB) and James Beresford (2-for-4; 2B, R, RBI, BB) each extended their team-best hitting streaks to 5 games. Beresford is now 9-for-20 (.450) on the season with a double, 4 runs and 3 RBI.

The Red Wings were without their leadoff man, Darin Mastroianni, Wednesday. The Wings table-setter was summoned to Minnesota after OF Oswaldo Arcia was put on the disabled list. Mastroianni, who went a combined 6-for-8 in Tuesday’s twinbill, had a tied for league-leading 9 hits on the season and was also riding an IL-best 14-game hitting streak dating back to last season.
