Tough Finish in the Nightcap

Red Wings 12, Orioles 12

Posted by Red Wings on August 17th, 2011
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.

Other Notables:
Jon Schneider picked up his team-leading 30th hit of the year, in the process raised his batting average to an unholy .500.

Dylan Rees 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.

The Redwings are back in action this Sunday, August 21st at Genesee Valley Park, with a 12 noon start time against the Tribe.
