WooSox lose series to Red Wings, back to under .500 for the season

Last week the Worcester Red Sox visited Innovative Field in Rochester, New York for a week-long series against the Red Wings, and alternated losses and wins until being swept over the weekend to lose the series 4-2. The WooSox now find themselves back under the .500 mark, but their 19-20 record is still good enough for a tie for fifth in the International League’s East Division.
