Judge Homers Again in RailRiders Loss

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – Aaron Judge posted his IL-best 15th home run, but his SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) fell to the Pawtucket Red Sox (Boston Red Sox) at McCoy Stadium on Saturday night, 7-3. The RailRiders (44-32) lost for just the fourth time over their last 20 games at Pawtucket (39-37).

The rehabbing Brock Holt put Pawtucket on the board with a two-out RBI single in the third. Henry Ramos drove Jantzen Witte across the plate in the fourth and homered home two runs in the sixth before adding a two-out RBI single in the seventh.

The gaudy SWB offense was in danger of suffering its sixth shutout loss of the season when it entered the ninth down, 7-0.  But Nick Swisher sparked the rally with a single before Judge lined a homer over the fence in left-center to get the RailRiders on the board. Two outs later, Donovan Solano homered to left to round out the scoring.

Pawtucket starter Sean O’Sullivan (6-2) fired seven scoreless innings for the win, retiring the last nine he faced. SWB starter Phil Coke (3-2) gave up two runs (one earned) over four frames to shoulder the loss.

The three-game series concludes at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday as SWB’s Luis Cessa (2-1, 3.63) faces lefty Henry Owens (5-3, 3.24).

The RailRiders return home for a seven-game homestand starting on the Fourth of July against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Philadelphia Phillies). The game includes post-game fireworks presented by the PA Lottery; foam light-up sticks to the first 2,500 fans through the gates thanks to Shur Save Supermarkets; USA-themed jerseys worn by the RailRiders; and Fourth-of-July hats worn by the team that will be auctioned off during the game.
