SCRANTON, Penn. (WROC) — The Rochester Red Wings struggles continued Tuesday night, losing 7-0 to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in Moosic, PA.

RHP Sterling Sharp got the start on the mound, giving up seven hits and one run in five innings of work. RHP Matt Brill relieved Sharp in the sixth and allowed four runs on three hits as Rochester fell into a 5-0 hole. Relievers Matt Cronin and Luis Avilan tossed the final two innings, with Avilan giving up a pair of runs on a Tim Locastro homer.
