Starting pitcher Dave Gassner gave up back to back home runs in the first to Trent Durrington and Shin-Soo Choo to give the Buffalo Bisons an early lead. Jason Cooper lifted a pitch near the warning track in right field almost making it three home runs in a row, but Doug Deeds reeled in the fly ball. The Wings could not respond in the second due to a rare 7-3 double play after a fly ball by Matt Tolbert was caught with Trent Oeltjen running on the pitch.
Gassner did not fare much better in the next two innings either.. Three hits, including a double by leadoff hitter Joe Inglett plated another run, making the score 3-0 in the second. Two strikeouts limited any further damage and Gassner stranded two runners in scoring position. In the third, Cooper was able to square up a Gassner pitch, sending it into the bullpen in right for the third home run by the Bisons in the game.
In the second, a leadoff hit by Deeds turned into a run as Williams doubled him in with a hit down the right field line. Darnell McDonald cashed in on an opportunity in the third to close the lead to within one. With leadoff man Oeltjen on base, McDonald sent a mammoth shot to left clear over the Buffalo bullen and into the picnic area for a two-run home run, his seventh of the year bringing the score to 4-3.
The Wings tied the score at 4-4 in the fourth, when Chris Basak knocked in Williams with a single. Bubbie Buzachero replaced Stanford in the fifth inning, and the Wings went ahead against the new pitcher. Deeds drilled a two-out double ans scored the go-ahead run on Williams' triple. Matthew LeCroy clubbed a double off the top of the left field wall to bring in Williams and make it 6-4 Rochester.
Gassner (6-12) worked five innings, replaced in the sixth by Jay Sawatski. Matt Macri increased the Rochester lead with another mammoth homer, a solo shot that landed on Plymouth Avenue beyond the left field fence. In his next at bat in the eigth, Macri clubbed another home run over the scoreboard for his second solo blast of the game.
Tim Lahey pitched the final two innings, picking up his first Triple-A save.
