IronPigs edge Red Wings to close out homestand

The IronPigs closed out their homestand with a 3-2 win over Rochester at Coca-Cola Park on Sunday.

Clete Thomas scored on a passed ball and hit an RBI double that ended up being the difference.

Cameron Rupp also hit an RBI double, but left afterward with a back injury.

David Buchanan pitched one scoreless inning before being lifted from the game, presumably to be ready to pitch in Philadelphia if he's needed.

A.J. Burnett, who left his start Friday with a groin injury, is scheduled to pitch on Wednesday.

After Buchanan's departure, the 'Pigs got eight solid innings from the bullpen, including four scoreless innings from Brad Lincoln, who ended up getting the win.

The IronPigs (4-7) close out their homestand at 2-5.  They will open an eight-game road trip in Syracuse Monday night at 6pm.
