The Red Wings bid for a second straight win over Louisville was thwarted Saturday night as the Bats topped the Wings, 5-2, in Kentucky.

The Bats took the 2-0 lead on a pair of solo homers as Steve Selsky and Taylor Sparks took Wings starter DJ Baxendale deep in the second and third innings, respectively.

The Wings (46-56) fought back in the sixth as Gregorio Petit tied the game with a two-out, two-strike, two-run single to right that scored Jeremy Hazelbaker and Taylor Motter.

But the Bats would strike for a run in the seventh and two in the eighth off Alan Busenitz to take the lead for good.

Trevor May relieved Baxendale and tossed two scoreless innings for Rochester to extend his scoreless streak to 9.1 innings.

The Wings managed just four hits on the night.

The Wings six-game west division road swing concludes on Sunday evening at 6 pm. The Red Wings return to Rochester on Monday to open a four-game series against the Scranton/WB RailRiders.

Earlier in the day, the Minnesota Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano and LHP Gabriel Moya.
