Tough Finish in the Nightcap
Red Wings 12, Orioles 12
The second half of Wednesdays Twi-Night Doubleheader was not kind to the Redwings. After jumping out to a 9-3 lead in the 5th inning the wheels feel off, to the tune of 9 runs surrendered, after an ugly injury to center-fielder Marki McRae
Down 12-9 the Wings answered back in the 6th to tie the game on Andy Ruestow's
4th and 5th RBI of the game. Sadly it was a case of too little too late as the clock ran out on the Wings with the game ending in a tie.
picked up his team-leading 30th hit of the year, in the process raised his batting average to an unholy .500.
pitched the final two innings, coming into a tied game with the bases loaded in the 6th and proceeded to strike out 6 batters, leaving him just two shy of 50 on the season.

Wings Sweep Season Series over Tigers
Red Wings 8, Tigers 6
Wings finish the season series against the Tigers a perfect 3-0 after Wednesday nights 8-6 come from behind victory.

Player Profile - Bob Williams
With his efforts to reduce the city of Rochester's ecological footprint, some have hypothesized that Bob is the illegitimate child of Erin Brockovich and Captain Planet. Bob rides his bike on average 200 miles a day, and still has the stamina to track down balls like Harry Potter in a match of Quidditch (minus the broomstick). It should also be noted that Bob has the sickest pair of sunglasses this side of the Mississippi.
Wings extend winning streak to 3
Red Wings 9, Tigers 2

John Feltes provided 6 lights out innings on the bump scattering 3 hits while striking out 7. Marki McRae, Dylan Rees, and Doc Bowman each had 2 hit games and provided 6 of...
Player Profile - Joe Mamon
Coaching the Wings can be an extremely stressful job, so it's understandable that Joe set the record last year for youngest male EVER to use Just for Men on his goatee (Keith Hernandez is a close second at 40). Mamon's coaching style can primarily be traced back to the early teachings of Deng Xiaoping, Benito Mussolini, and the Jonas Brothers (in case you were wondering, Nick is his favorite). As if coaching weren't...

Red Wings 11, Royals 3
Doc Bowman extended his pitching record to 2-0 today as he pitched 5 scoreless innings allowing only 3 hits while striking out 4 as part of an 11-3 win over the Royals. The wings offense was on fire today as they went 16 for 32 collectively at the plate.
For the second game in a row Dylan Rees provided the power with his second homer of the young season, Dylan wasn't finished, he started of...
Player Profile - Dylan Rees
Don't let his lemur like appearance fool you on the mound. When it comes to pitching, or Call of Duty Modern Warfare's 1-5, Dylan knows one thing... DOMINATION.
With a two-seam fastball more accurate than a German made H&K MSG90 Sniper Rifle, and a curveball with more parabolic action than an 8th grade math class he is able to make quick work of opposing batters. Dylan fine-tuned his Call of Duty/Baseball skills at RIT where...
Wings Blow 8-7 Lead and drop to .500
Mets 11, Red Wings 8
The Redwings came back from a 6-0 deficit to grab an 8-7 in the 5th inning before the succumbing to the Met's offense. The Wings offense was flat for much of the game aside from a two inning burst which saw the Wings hit for the 'team-cycle' punctuated by Dylans Rees's 1st Homerun of the year.
The Redwings look to get back above .500 on June 9th at MCC against the Royals at...
Slow start doesn't stop the Wings from Magnanimous Victory

Late inning rally comes up short
Tribe 8, Red Wings 6
Red Wings wasted 3 scoreless innings from the timeless Bob 'Doc' Bowman and dropped a tough one to the Tribe. After falling behind 8-0 by the 7th inning, the Wings clawed their way back to 8-3 going into the 9th. With 3 runs in the 9th they made it an exciting finish when Greg 'Barn-dog' Barnhardt hit a long fly ball to right field which would have platted the go ahead run if...
