Lail Suffers Loss in Quality Start

MOOSIC, PA –  The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) fell 5-3 to the Louisville Bats on Tuesday night at PNC Field. The loss was only the third for the RailRiders (26-20) in 11 games against the IL West. The Bats improved to 23-21.

Cody Reed (3-2) worked around his Triple-A season-worst seven hits to limit SWB to two runs across six innings. He struck out seven. Brady Lail (2-1) shouldered the defeat despite a quality start. He surrendered three runs total in the first two innings, but finished the night with four straight scoreless frames. Wandy Peralta earned his first save with Louisville despite allowing a run in the ninth.

Outfielder Jake Cave teamed with Cesar Puello for the RailRiders only runs. Cave doubled in the fifth and came around on Puello’s second home run of the year, an opposite field shot to the right corner. Cave singled in the sixth and tripled to center in the ninth. Puello drove him in with a sacrifice fly to center, capping a three RBI effort.

Juan Perez homered on the game’s third pitch to give the Bats a lead they would not relinquish. The advantage grew to 3-0 on a two-run double by Rafael Lopez in the second. After Puello’s homer cut the deficit to one at 3-2, Louisville tallied runs in the seventh and eighth to build the margin back to three.

The RailRiders and Bats have a quick turn around on Wednesday. It’s School Day at PNC Field with a first pitch scheduled for 10:35 a.m. Left-hander Phil Coke (2-0, 0.00) starts for SWB against Major League rehabber Anthony DeSclafani (0-0, 0.00) For tickets or more information, please call 570-969-BALL (2255) or visit swbrailriders.com.
