Rochester Red Wings road trip features 10 losses in 12 games

The first time manager Matt LeCroy took his Rochester Red Wings on a two-week road trip was to start the delayed 2021 season, and that sojourn produced a gruesome 2-10 record which the team never recovered from.

There have been a few two-week road trips since then, but the most recent one — which took the Wings to St. Paul, Minnesota and Scranton, Pennsylvania — surely conjured bad memories for LeCroy and the players who were on that original roadie.

When the Wings left town on June 6 they were leading the International League East by 3.5 games over Buffalo. But after getting swept six straight in St. Paul and losing four of six to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the Wings are now trailing Buffalo by a half-game, and they’re probably fortunate it’s that close after the two weeks they just had.

“It’s one of those times during the season where, we gotta give credit to the other teams,” LeCroy said Monday, an off say before his club begins a 12-game homestand against their other Thruway rival, Syracuse, on Tuesday night at Frontier Field.
