The Rochester Red Wings fell in walk-off fashion Monday afternoon as they wrapped up their eight-game road trip with a 2-1 loss against the Toledo Mud Hens at Fifth Third Field.

The Wings return to Frontier Field, the site of their last victory (May 4), on Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m. after going winless over their Buckeye State road trip.

The eight-game losing streak is the longest by a Red Wings team since 2012 (April 25-May 2).

Brandon Douglas played the role of hero Monday singling home Ben Guez with one out in the ninth inning off Red Wings reliever Aaron Thompson. Guez began the ninth-inning rally with a bloop double down the right field line and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt from Troy Hanzawa.

Trailing 1-0 in the eighth, the Red Wings (16-20) snapped an 18-inning scoreless drought when Oswaldo Arcia lifted a sacrifice fly to right field that brought home Eric Fryer, who doubled to lead off the inning, with the tying run.

Rochester got four lead-off doubles on Monday but could only score them once as the Wings went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position.

The Mud Hens took the 1-0 lead on a one-out RBI double from Jordan Lennerton in the fourth inning. The run would be the only allowed by Wings starter Kris Johnson over his 5 1/3 innings of work.

Over his last four starts, Johnson has now allowed just two earned runs over 21 1/3 innings (0.84 ERA).

Rochester collected five hits on Monday, including two from Eric Farris, who now has a team-leading 14 multi-hit games this season.

Trevor May (1-3, 4.97) gets the ball on Tuesday as the Wings begin the eight-game homestand against right-hander Trevor Bauer (4-0, 1.12) and the Columbus Clippers.
