Dietrich Enns has a good game. Brent Rooker carried the Lookouts offense and a triple play saved the game. Fort Myers probably shouldn't have played. Brusdar Graterol gets back under control, but the Kernels drop a doubleheader.
ROCHESTER 2, BUFFALO 0 IN ROCHESTER
Wynston Sawyer singled home a run in the fourth and Nick Gordon did the same in the fifth. That was all Dietrich Enns and two relievers would need.

CHATTANOOGA 11, MONTGOMERY 10 IN CHATTANOOGA
The Lookouts had leads of 4-0, 5-2, 9-4, and 11-9. They scored two runs in each of the first six innings except the third, when they scored one. The Biscuits cut the margin to one in the eighth and had the bases loaded with none out, but hit into a 2-5-3 triple play.
Brent Rooker was 4-for-5 with a home run (his seventh) and a double, scoring three times and driving in three. Zander Wiel was 3-for-3 with two doubles and is batting .331. Tanner English was 3-for-4 with two doubles and a walk, scoring four times.
Anthony Marzi pitched 4.1 innings, allowing four runs on ten hits and no walks and striking out two. Ryne Harper was credited with two perfect innings despite facing just four batters. He struck out one and has an ERA of 1.93.
CHARLOTTE 2, FORT MYERS 0 IN CHARLOTTE (GAME 1--4 1/2 INNINGS--SCHEDULED 7 INNINGS)
It was a game that probably should not have been played, as there were over three hours' worth of rain delays. Surprisingly, neither starting pitcher came out of the game after those delays. The Stone Crabs scored in each of the first two innings.
The Miracle had just three hits, all singles. Mark Contreras was 1-for-2 with a walk.
Tyler Wells pitched a four-inning complete game, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk and striking out one.
FORT MYERS AT CHARLOTTE (GAME 2)
CLINTON 4, CEDAR RAPIDS 1 IN CEDAR RAPIDS (GAME 1--7 INNINGS)
Dimas Ojeda hit a two-run homer and the LumberKings led the rest of the way. The lone Kernels run came in the third on an Alex Kirilloff single.
Cedar Rapids had five hits, all singles. Kirilloff was 1-for-3 and is batting .325. Jordan Gore is 0-for-3 and is batting .316.
Brusdar Graterol struck out nine in six innings, giving up three runs on five hits and no walks. Whatever his control issue was last time out was not present here. His ERA is 1.78.
CLINTON 9, CEDAR RAPIDS 6 IN CEDAR RAPIDS (GAME 2--7 INNINGS)
With the scored tied 3-3, the LumberKings scored five runs in the fifth to take control of the game. Clinton drew three walks in the inning and also benefited from a hit batsman and an error.
Jean Carlos Arias was 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs. Jacob Pearson was 2-for-4. Shane Carrier hit his fifth home run.
Jovani Moran struck out four in 2.1 innings, giving up two runs on four hits and no walks. He is normally a reliever and presumably was on a pitch count.
