Knights topple Wings to win series

Courtesy of

The Knights scored early and often Wednesday night as they cruised to a 9-2 win over the Red Wings to win the rubber game of the three-game set in Charlotte.

The Knights plated a run in the first, two in the second and three in the third as they built a commanding 6-0 lead and chased Wings starter Myles Jaye (0-1) from the game.

Ryne Harper , just promoted from Double-A, made his Red Wings debut in relief of Jaye and allowed one run on three hits with two strikeouts over two innings.

The Wings scored a run in the fifth inning on a Bobby Wilson RBI single that scored Leonardo Reginatto from second. They also plated a run in the ninth on Kennys Vargassecond homer of the series.

Reginatto picked up a pair of doubles for Rochester.

Despite the loss, the Wings had a productive 4-2 road trip and after an off day Thursday, the Wings start a seven-game, six-day homestand on Friday night at Frontier Field against the Columbus Clippers.

NOTES: The first pitch temperature for Wednesday’s game was 81 degrees…The Wings went just 1-for-21 with RISP in the series.
