Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (8-10): Down by one run entering the bottom of the ninth, the RailRiders didn’t record another out – capitalizing on some wild Lehigh Valley pitching to prevail on a walk-off hit-by-pitch, 4-3.

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Cabrera doubled home Evan Alexander with the tying run in the ninth-inning rally
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-2, 1 RBI, 3 walks, 1 stolen base
  • Greg Bird: 0-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 1 strikeout. Bird was hit by the pitch that won the game for Scranton, scoring Oswald Peraza
  • Ender Inciarte: 2-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 2 stolen bases
  • Hayden Wesneski: 6 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 76 pitches (47 strikes). Wesneski has a 20:5 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 19 innings across four starts
  • Michael Gomez: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 23 pitches (15 strikes)

Somerset Patriots (10-7): The Patriots dropped the second game of their set with Portland, 2-1.

  • Star of the Game: Sean Boyle – 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 7 K, 74 pitches (57 strikes). After getting lit up by Hartford last Thursday, Boyle bounced back with a vintage performance, striking out the side in the third inning
  • Anthony Volpe: 2-for-3, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 walk. Volpe is 4 for his last 16

Tampa Tarpons (7-10): At long last! The Tarpons busted out of their grueling slump, snapping a seven-game losing streak and bashing four home runs in an emphatic 10-3 win over the Flying Tigers.
