Rochester answered back in the second. The Wings connected on back to back doubles to score their first run of the game. Starter RHP L.J. Gagnier pitched his way out of a jam when the bases were loaded with two outs and 2010 Nippon Professional Baseball Hitting Champion Nishioka came to bat. Gagnier forced Nishioka to groundout to the second baseman.
Rhymes belted a solo home run down the right field line in the fourth to extend Toledo's lead to 4-1.
The Red Wings battled back in the fourth. Following a leadoff walk, Jeff Baily roped a double to left. Chase Lambin hit a sacrifice fly to score the Wings second run of the game. However, five-time NPB all-star Nishioka got the best of Gagnier in the fourth when he smoked a RBI double to deep right center that closed Toledo's lead to 4-3.
The 4-3 score did not last long. The Hens tacked on two more runs in their half of the fourth on a Rhymes RBI groundout and a Argenis Diaz RBI single which gave Toledo another three-run lead.
LHP Matt Hoffman provided two shutout innings of relief in the sixth and the seventh to keep the Wings at bay. Ryan Perry also pitched two shutout innings to earn the save.
