MOOSIC, PA – The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) dropped a 2-1 final to the Columbus Clippers on Tuesday night at PNC Field. The RailRiders (30-24) lost for the 18th time in 22 meetings with the Clippers (30-23).  11 of those losses to Columbus were by one run.

Johnny Barbato (0-1) shouldered the loss in relief after allowing an unearned run on a passed ball in his two innings of work. Ben Heller (1-1) earned his first Triple-A victory by hurling two perfect innings. Jeff Johnson notched his second save with a 1-2-3 ninth.

The Clippers jumped on SWB starter Tyler Webb in the first inning. Erik Gonzalez doubled to right and scored on single to center by Giovanny Urshela.

Donovan Solano scored the only run of the night for SWB in the fourth. The third baseman singled and advanced to third via groundout and wild pitch. A throwing error by Gonzalez from second allowed Solano to score.

The RailRIders biggest opportunity of the night came in the sixth. Against Clippers starter Cody Anderson, SWB loaded the bases on three straight singles from Chris ParmeleeCesar Puello and Pete Kozma. The moment turned, however, as Anderson came back to strike out Eddy Rodriguez and Jonathan DiazBen Gamel lined out to center, ending the rally.
