RailRiders Flat in 7-0 Loss

Moosic, Pa- The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) struggles continue against the Columbus Clippers (Cleveland Indians) as they dropped their 12th straight game against the former Yankees affiliate dating back to last season. Gabriel Arias was a mystery the RailRiders couldn’t solve as he tossed seven scoreless innings allowing just three hits. Rob Refsnyder and Zoilo Almonte were the only two RailRiders to record hits in the 7-0 loss at PNC Field.

SWB’s (57-61) starter Chris Leroux was dealing early retiring his first seven batters before the Clippers (63-56) scored the game’s first run on a Dusty Brown RBI double scoring James Ramsey who doubled with one out to make it 1-0. In the fourth, Leroux continued to struggle. With a runner on second and two outs, Carlos Moncrief singled home Jesus Aguilar to make it 2-0. Audy Ciriaco followed with a two-run blast to double the score, 4-0.

Columbus would tack on a single tally in the fifth inning with a Francisco Lindor RBI single extending the lead 5-0. The Clippers added a pair in the eighth off of reliever Tyler Webb for good measure when Ramsey left the yard for a two-run shot making it 7-0 and the final score.

The RailRiders’ lone threat of the game in the fourth was quickly diminished. A 4-0 deficit at the time, Refsnyder singled for his third hit of the night, and Almonte reached on error with nobody out to set up the inning. Austin Romine grounded into a double play, moving Refsnyder to third and Kyle Roller struck out to end the frame.
