ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — One of the hottest teams in Class AAA is coming back to Rochester for a two-week homestand.

The Wings will play 12 games at Frontier Field starting Tuesday and they have the reigning pitcher of the week on their staff.

Tyler Eppler was named the AAA East Pitcher of the Week after giving up just one hit while throwing seven innings in a win over Lehigh Valley last Wednesday.

Eppler had five strikeouts in the game and didn't allow a baserunner to get past second base while he was on the mound.

This is the first career pitcher of the week honor for Eppler, and it highlights an incredible week by Rochester pitchers.

Last week, Wings pitchers had a 1.88 ERA and only allowed 33 hits in six games.
