Reds Wings 5, Clippers 4: Rally ends a run short

High Contrast Normal Version

Despite a late rally, the Clippers weren’t able to catch the host Rochester Red Wings in a 5-4 loss yesterday at Frontier Field.

With starter Tyler Cloyd on the mound, the Clippers fell into an early 4-0 hole thanks to a first-inning grand slam by Deibinson Romero. Cloyd gave up consecutive singles to Eric Farris, James Beresford and Oswaldo Arcia to start the inning, and Romero cleared the bases with his shot to left field.

The Red Wings added an important insurance run in the fifth when Chris Herrmann doubled home Arcia.

The Clippers broke through with four runs in the eighth. After Tim Fedroff led off with a single, Matt Carson hit his fourth home run of the season.

With two outs, they made it 5-4 when Red Wings shortstop Pedro Florimon’s fielding error allowed George Kottaras and Ryan Rohlinger to score.

Rochester turned to reliever Aaron Thompson, who struck out Audy Ciriaco to end the eighth and then pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his first save.

Starter Alex Meyer (2-1) got the win after working five no-hit innings.
