Red Wings lose ground in playoff race with 7-2 loss

Syracuse Silences Rochester on the Road

The Rochester Red Wings picked up a big win Friday, but it was a moot point by the end of the day Saturday.

Trevor Plouffe drove in a pair of runs for the Red Wings, but Rochester's offense was otherwise silent in a 7-2 loss to Lehigh Valley.

The IronPigs once again moved to 4.5 games ahead of Rochester in the race for the International League Wild Card. Sunday's rubber match in Allentown is critical for Rochester's playoff hopes entering the home stretch of the season.
