Veteran Influence

PORTLAND, OR-- As that familiar adage goes, age is only a number. In Shawn Wooten's case, that seems to be true. Less than a week away from his 36th birthday, the Beaver's catcher is having fun in Portland with his new team.

Hensley wins; Carrillo bounces back

Clay Hensley picked up his first win of the season. Matt Buschmann was a hard luck loser in San Antonio. Cesar Carrillo's outing was much better, but R.J. Rodriguez suffered a blown save. Jackson Quezada could not close the door in Fort Wayne. Sawyer Carroll homers but Matt Means has a tough go of things.

King, Wooten heroics; Durango earns save

Tom King and Shawn Wooten provide the heroics for a Portland thriller. San Antonio's sloppy play costs them the game, and manager Bill Masse is not happy. Two players are thrown out running the bases in a Storm loss. Derek McDaid gets his first save opportunity, but it was Luis Durango that saved the day.

Antonelli homering fool; Wooten only offense

Portland is no-hit until the seventh in another loss. Shawn Wooten provided the offense for San Antonio and one run was all they would need. Matt Antonelli hits two homers and Nic Crosta hammers the seventh grand slam for Lake Elsinore this year. Pablo Menchaca pitches well and is rewarded when the offense backs him up.

Live From Rochester: Wings Blow Garza's Start

In this edition of Live From Rochester, the Red Wings blow an important start for Matt Garza.

Coupled with a Scranton win, the Wings are now a game back of the Red Barons for first in the IL North.
