Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple A)
The RailRiders lost the series finale against the Toledo Mud Hens by a score of 5-0. The shutout was just the club’s third of the season. Luis Cessa turned in a quality start but was charged with the loss. Over six innings, the right hander struck out four and allowed two runs on three scattered hits and a walk. Dustin Fowler led Scranton’s offense, going 2-for-4 with a pair of singles. He now has a whopping eight hits in his past three contests. Tyler Austin finished up his rehabilitation stint with the club, going 1-for-3. Austin reached base via a base-knock in each of the three games that he played in with Scranton.
Trenton Thunder (Double A)
The Thunder lost in extra-innings on a walk-off single from Deiner Lopez off Thunder reliever Colten Brewer. The loss put an end to the Thunder’s impressive seven game winning streak. Offensively, the Thunder ended up somehow mustering seven runs on just five hits. Thairo Estrada’s performance was the most impressive as he belted his third homer of the season in the top of the ninth inning. Ronald Herrera got the start and pitched well. His defense let him down as only one of the four runs scored were earned. In all, he went six innings, struck out five, and permitted six hits and one walk.
