The Rochester Red Wings open their 2007 season on Friday, as they send top prospect Matt Garza to the hill.

If their 2006 ranking has improved, it will be indicated in green. If their ranking has declined, it will be in red. Players on the 40-man roster will be indicated by an ** preceding their name.

In this edition of Live From Rochester, the Wings suffer another loss, and do not have the same look as the team that was seemingly a lock for the International League playoffs a few weeks ago. Scott Baker got the start for the Wings, and pitched well, but his efforts were wasted in the loss.

In this edition of Live From Rochester, the Wings blow an early lead, eventually falling to the Ottawa Lynx 7-3. Jason Miller, coming off his best outing of the year, did not have it on this night, as the Lynx took advantage of a six-run third inning. They are now three games behind Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for first place in the IL North, but they still have the Wild Card.
