(ROCHESTER, NY) - Every Indianapolis Indians batter had at least one hit, one RBI, and one run scored in their 16-3 rout of the hometown Rochester Red Wings Sunday afternoon.
The most notable of those hits was a grand slam from the bat of Brian Bixler in the second inning.
The Indians offense was support by the arm of starter Kip Bouknight who went seven innings and allowed three runs and struck out three. The same could not be said for Red Wings' starter Dave Gassner who allowed nine runs on eight hits in two-and-two-thirds innings of work.
The offensive display worked as the appropriate fireworks for the 900 career win for Indians skipper Trent Jewett who has been with the Pirates franchise for sixteen years.
The Indians win got them to within four games of the International League West division lead as they begin a homestand against Scranton tonight.
