Rochester, NY --- Tommy Milone threw a six-hit complete game to lead Rochester past Durham 3-0 at Frontier Field on Monday night.

Milone (W, 3-0), who fanned 12 over eight scoreless innings in his last outing, struck out 13 over a 115-pitch complete game, tying his career-high in strikeouts in the process.

Buschmann worked the first seven innings, permitting five hits while fanning six. Grant Balfour stranded two in the eighth.

Jake Elmore and Alexi Casilla had two hits apiece.
