HOT WINGS: The Rochester Red Wings picked up their first win of the year at Sahlen Field last night, 7-3 to even the series at a game apiece…CF Andrew Stevenson and 1B Adrian Sanchez each collected a pair of hits, including Stevenson launching his 16th homer, a three-run shot in the fifth to give the Wings the lead for good…3B Jake Alu extended his hit streak to nine games with a fourth-inning double, also his fourth-straight contest with an extra-base hit…rehabbing southpaw MacKenzie Gore made his third rehab start of the year, working four full innings, allowing just one earned on two hits…four pitchers were used to cover the final five frames, including a hitless ninth by RHP Reed Garrett…Rochester will look to take a 2-1 series lead in tonight’s contest, as RHP Franklyn Kilome gets the ball for his 11th start with the Wings.
