BUFFALO, N.Y. – A late rally was not enough as the Rochester Red Wings (52-55) dropped game one of a two-game series to the Buffalo Bisons (56-51), 6-5 on Monday night.
Down three headed into the top of ninth, Ronald Torreyes led off the inning with a single to start the rally. Three batters later, Jaylin Davis launched his 15th homer of the year to center field to cut the deficit to one, however the Wings were unable to extend the pressure.
Cave drove in the first run of the contest in the first inning with his 16th double of the year and now has back-to-back games with two hits. Gordon laced two doubles that included an RBI in the seventh to bring in Wynston Sawyer. Gordon is tied for fifth in the International League in doubles with 27.
Red Wings starter Drew Hutchison finished his outing throwing 5.0 innings and surrendered three runs on three hits and had five walks with four strikeouts.
The Wings complete the road trip in Buffalo Tuesday night with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m.
