SWB RailRiders Falter Against Bisons

 

Moosic, Pa. – The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/ New York Yankees) dropped their series opener against the Buffalo Bisons 2-1 on Friday night at PNC Field. The Bisons improved to an IL North Division-best 6-2 on the young season as the RailRiders slid to 3-5.

Dietrich Enns fired five scoreless innings in his second start of the season. The RailRiders’ southpaw yielded two hits, a walk and struck out four.

Buffalo capitalized on a couple of miscues to score the deciding runs. A two-out wild pitch by Tyler Jones allowed Christian Lopes to score the tying run in the sixth. With two away in the seventh, the Bisons loaded the bases against Ben Heller (0-2) and forced home the winning run when Ty Kelly was hit by an inside pitch.

Ruben Tejada’s two-hit performance included a run-producing double in the second inning for the RailRiders’ only tally. The third baseman roped a double inside third that scored Mark Payton from first base.

The 2016 Gildan Triple-A National Champion RailRiders continue their series with the Buffalo Bisons (Toronto Blue Jays) at 4:05 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at PNC Field. SWB right-hander Luis Cessa (1-0, 0.00) will face left T.J. House (1-0, 0.00). For tickets or more information, please call 570-969-BALL (2255) or visit swbrailriders.com.
