OTTAWA -- Jimmy Haynes continued his domination of the Ottawa Lynx last night, leading the Rochester Red Wings to a 5-4 victory in Game 1 of the best-of-five International League East playoff series.
Haynes pitched six shutout innings but was charged with two runs after leaving in the seventh. Ottawa rallied from a 5-0 deficit, but Jimmy Myers picked up the save with 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief.
The series resumes tonight at Ottawa Stadium.
Haynes had a streak of 15 1/3 scoreless innings against the Lynx until Mike Oquist gave up a two-run double to Rafael Bournigal in the seventh.
The Lynx could face Orioles right-hander Ben McDonald, on a rehabilitation assignment, in Game 4.
"I don't think McDonald could be any better than Haynes was today," said Lynx manager Pete Mackanin.
