Green Fans 11 in RailRiders Setback

TOLEDO, OH – The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) fell to the Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers) at Fifth Third Field on Thursday night, 3-2. The RailRiders (39-29) saw their season-best six-game win streak come to a close as they finished their road trip through Ohio at 6-1. The Mud Hens (29-37) snapped a five-game losing skid.

The RailRiders grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second on run-scoring hits by Cesar Puello and Ben Gamel. Toledo responded in the third with consecutive two-out singles followed by JaCoby Jones’ first Triple-A home run, a three-run job that rounded out the scoring.

SWB starter Chad Green (4-6) would dominate after the homer, retiring 13 of the final 14 he faced. The former Tigers farmhand struck out a career-high 11 over seven innings. Toledo’s Chad Bell (3-1) picked up the win with 5.1 innings of two-run ball. Bruce Rondon worked around a baserunner in the ninth for his eighth save.
