Green’s Strong Start Helps SWB RailRiders Solve Bisons

Rob Refsnyder Grabs Two Hits, Triples Home a Run


Moosic, Pa. – The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/ New York Yankees) beat the Buffalo Bisons 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at PNC Field to bookend their opening homestand with victories. The triumph snapped a five-game skid to the Bisons (7-3) and improved the RailRiders to 4-6 on the young campaign.

Right-hander Chad Green (1-1) weaved together seven impressive innings, limiting the Bisons to one run on six hits. He struck out seven while allowing one walk. The run came in the second frame when Dwight Smith Jr. worked a leadoff walk and scored on a two-out double by Gregorio Petit. Ben Heller pitched a scoreless ninth, striking out a batter, to pick up his first save of 2017.

The RailRiders tied the game in their half of the third when Cito Culver worked a one-out walk. Wilkin Castillo followed with a bounding single over third and Clint Frazier deliver Culver home with a single through the right side.

SWB grabbed their first lead of the day in the seventh against reliever Mike Bolsinger (0-1). Ruben Tejada sparked the rally by bashing a double to right-center. Culver advanced the runner with a grounder to short and Castillo came through again with a single to right for the RBI.

Dustin Fowler tallied his second hit of the afternoon on a single to center in the eighth and easily scored when Rob Refsnyder launched a triple to right for a 3-1 advantage.

The 2016 Gildan Triple-A National Champion RailRiders hit the road for six games in the IL West beginning Tuesday. First pitch against the Louisville Bats (Cincinnati Reds) is set for 6:35 p.m. Right-hander Brady Lail (0-0, 10.38) is scheduled to face right-hander Rob Wooten (1-0, 2.92).
