Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (34-42): During this five-game winning streak, the RailRiders aren’t just winning – they’re winning big. Friday’s effort was an 8-1 trouncing of reeling Buffalo.

  • Star of the Game: Matt Krook – 7.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 10 K, 93 pitches (63 strikes). Krook was dominant and efficient in winning his fourth game of the year, as he submitted both his longest effort and a season high for strikeouts
  • Estevan Florial: 3-for-4, 3 doubles, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout. Florial’s batting average has crested .300
  • Tim Locastro: 2-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base
  • Jose Peraza: 1-for-1, 1 home run (5), 2 RBI, 1 run scored. Peraza replaced Miguel Andujar in the field and homered in his only at-bat
  • Chris Owings: 1-for-4, 1 home run (1), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout
  • Armando Alvarez: 1-for-4, 1 home run (9), 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Perhaps the hottest Scranton hitter at the moment, Alvarez has homered in four straight games
  • Zach Greene: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 19 pitches (11 strikes)
