Red Wings Clip RailRiders Again

ROCHESTER, NY – A fifth-inning home run by Adam Brett Walker proved the only run as the SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) fell to the host Rochester Red Wings (Minnesota Twins) on a rainy Sunday afternoon, 1-0. The RailRiders (12-12) have lost 18 of their last 26 at Frontier Field. The Red Wings (11-13) have won seven of their last 11 and lead the season-long series between the clubs, 4-3.

Walker’s pull job to left was his third of the season and second against the RailRiders. It made for a tough-luck loss by SWB’s Anthony Swarzak (1-3), who logged a complete game and became the first RailRider to pitch into the eighth this season.

Rochester starter David Martinez (1-1) tossed 7.1 scoreless innings for the win. J.R. Graham logged the final two outs for his third save.

The RailRiders’ nine-game road trip shifts to Buffalo for the first of three against the Bisons (Toronto Blue Jays) at 6:05 p.m. on Monday. SWB is scheduled to toss Luis Cessa (0-0, 3.18) against southpaw Wade LeBlanc (2-1, 2.22).

The RailRiders return home for a nine-game homestand on Saturday, May 7. It starts with a two-game renewal of the IronRail Series against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Philadelphia Phillies). The first 1,000 kids in attendance will receive a CHAMP bank courtesy of the Times Leader. It will also be Fit Track Day, a community outreach initiative that helps promote physical activity, healthy eating choices and a good night’s rest for kids. Participating children from area schools will be recognized on the field for their Fit Track efforts. For tickets or more information, please call 570-969-BALL (2255) or visit swbrailriders.com.
