ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The red-hot Rochester Red Wings overcame unbeaten right-hander Matt Murray last night and edged Richmond, 6-5, at Silver Stadium for their seventh straight International League victory and ninth in the past 10 games.
Murray was a combined 11-0 for Greenville (Double A) and Richmond entering the night. His record remained unscathed, but the Red Wings pounded him for 10 hits and five runs in seven innings, equaling the number of runs he had allowed in seven previous Triple-A starts, all wins.
Tyrone Woods returned from the disabled list to hit a two-run, sixth-inning homer that gave Jimmy Haynes a 5-2 lead. $l Richmond rallied against Haynes and Mark Lee to tie in the eighth before Woods' two-out double against Chris Brock (0-5) knocked in the winning run in the bottom half.
The victory went to Lee (4-2), although he allowed consecutive run-scoring singles. Former Richmond Brave Terry Clark earned
his fifth save with a scoreless ninth.
