Triple-A Game between Lehigh Valley, Rochester features 15 homers

Saturday afternoon’s Triple-A game between the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) and Rochester Red Wings (Twins) set or matched all kinds of franchise records. The two squads combined to score 38 runs, racking up 43 hits and eight walks. 15 of those 43 hits were home runs. The IronPigs outlasted the Red Wings 20-18 in 10 innings.

And there are people who think power hasn’t been cheapened in the contemporary game!

Some of these were pretty weak. Apparently the weather contributed: The National Weather Service reported 20-30 mph steady wind with gusts to 45 mph during the Red Wings game.

Details:

On the IronPigs side, Jan Hernández, Sean Rodríguez, Andrew Romine, and Dylan Cozens each hit two home runs. Mitch Walding had only one. For the Red Wings, Zander Wiel went yard twice while Ronald Torreyes, Wilin Rosario, Brent Rooker, and Wynston Sawyer hit a round-tripper apiece.


Yes, that's the same Sean Rodriguez who was the Rays' shortstop a decade ago.
