CHARLOTTE, NC (August 14, 2019) - The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders used their largest inning of the season to come from behind against the Charlotte Knights Wednesday night, but were unable to hold on in the late innings as they lost 13-12 in extras at BB&T Ballpark.

The RailRiders trailed 8-4 entering the top of the 7th inning, but scored a season-high eight runs in the inning to turn a four-run deficit into a four-run lead. The inning featured a home run by Trey Amburgey (21) to get the scoring started. However, the big swing in frame came from Ryan McBroom who singled off Thyago Vieira with the bases loaded to give the RailRiders a 9-8 lead. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre plated three more runs from there to eventually lead 12-8. The RailRiders struck for eight runs on six hits and four walks in the frame as they sent 13 men to the plate in an inning for the first time this season.

Following that, the SWB offense mustered just one more baserunner- a walk- over the final three innings. This allowed Charlotte to rally off the bullpen, beginning in the eighth inning. After the first two men were retired, the Knights belted back-to-back home runs to cut the deficit in half at 12-10. Zack Collins and Yermin Mercedes doing the honors, with Collins adding to his career night at the plate, finishing 4-for-5 with two homers and 6 RBI.

David Sosebee entered for the ninth inning, but walked off the field with two outs with Athletic Trainer Darren London after the game could have already been over. The Knights scored a run to draw back to within a run at 12-11, but a groundball to third base was thrown away and extended the inning long enough for the Knights to tie it.

Sosebee passed the baseball off David Hernandez, who had just been signed by the New York Yankees earlier in the day. Ultimately, Hernandez struck out Mercedes with the bases loaded to force extra innings at 12-12. With two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, Charlie Tilson slapped a single to left field to plate pinch-runner Paulo Orlando who just narrowly beat a strong throw from Clint Frazier to score the winning run.

The RailRiders conclude their three-game set in Charlotte as they look to avoid a sweep with a scheduled 7:04 p.m. first pitch. RHP Nick Nelson (Triple-A Debut) takes the ball for the RailRiders against Charlotte's LHP Justin Nicolino (6-6, 6.08). Pregame coverage with Adam Giardino begins at 6:34 p.m. on the RailRiders Radio Network.

Trenton 8, Akron 1

Big Fifth Inning Leads 8-1 Thunder Win

By Trenton Thunder | August 14, 2019 10:21 PM

AKRON, OH --- The Thunder plated six runs in the fifth inning and never looked back in their 8-1 win over the Akron Rubberducks on Wednesday night at Canal Park.

Taking advantage of a pair of errors, the Thunder collected three hits and three walks in the deciding frame against Sam Hentges. Wendell Rijo plated a run after 3B Nolan Jones committed an error and Ben Ruta followed with a solid RBI single to make it 3-1. After a walk by Chris Gittens, Isiah Gilliam lifted a fly ball to deep right field that RF Trenton Brooks lost in the twilight sky and allowed three runs to cross home. Angel Aguilar added a sacrifice fly to push the lead to 7-1.

Chris Gittens added his league-leading 21st home run of the season in the sixth inning. His solo blast matched his career-high in home runs set in 2016 while playing for the Charleston Riverdogs.

Trevor Stephan made his return to the Thunder rotation with five innings of one-run ball. Stephan allowed an RBI single to Connor Marabell in the first inning and maneuvered around trouble in the second inning and settled in later in his outing; retiring 9-of-the-last-10 batters he faced. Stephan struck out seven, surrendered five hits and two walks on 76 pitches.

Braden Bristo worked out of a bases loaded no-out jam to start the seventh inning to complete two scoreless innings of relief. Bristo struck out a pair and allowed three hits and one walk.

Greg Weissert and Trevor Lane slammed the door on the victory with a hitless frame of relief from each.

Matt Lipka led the Thunder offense with a three-hit day, Hoy Jun Park added a pair of hits at the top of the order.

Your Thunder continue their road trip on Thursday night at 7:05pm against the Rubberducks. RHP Rony Garcia (3-11, 4.60) will start for the Thunder, LHP Tanner Tully (7-9, 4.40) will go for Akron. Pre-game coverage begins at 6:50pm on 920 AM The Jersey and online www.TrentonThunder.com/Broadcast.

By Nick Flammia / Tampa Tarpons | August 14, 2019 9:40 PM

TAMPA, Fla. - The Tampa Tarpons exploded for seven runs in the fifth and added four more in the seventh, tying a season-high with 15 hits while crushing the Palm Beach Cardinals, 11-4, on Wednesday night at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

RHP Miguel Yajure started the game with back-to-back strikeouts before Palm Beach (18-36, 53-65) tallied three-straight two-out hits. Nolan Gorman singled and scored on a double by Luken Baker, and Nick Dunn added an RBI single to right, giving the Cardinals a 2-0 lead.

A pair of double-plays helped RHP Kyle Leahy keep Tampa (27-26, 55-64) off the board for the first four frames before the Tarpons erupted in the fifth.

Mickey Gasper and Donny Sands both singled before a walk by Steven Sensley loaded the bases with no outs. Every runner moved up a spot as Leonardo Molina looped an RBI single to right before Pablo Olivares hit a fly ball to center.

Centerfielder Scott Hurst lost the ball in the lights, and two runs scored as Olivares reached and took second on a throw to the plate. One out later, Oswaldo Cabrera was intentionally walked, and Alexander Palma delivered a grand slam to left, giving the Tarpons a 7-2 lead.

Leahy (L, 0-4) got a pair of flyouts to end the fifth and worked around a one-out double by Sensley in the sixth to complete six innings. The 22-year-old allowed a career-high seven earned runs on eight hits, walking four while striking out two on 99 pitches (62 strikes).

Following the RBI single by Dunn in the first, Yajure retired 16-straight Cardinals before Baker and Dunn lined back-to-back singles to open the seventh. A wild pitch advanced the runners and, one out later, Baker scored on a sacrifice fly by Nick Plummer.

Yajure (W, 8-6) struck out Bryce Denton to complete the seventh, logging his 11th quality start. The 21-year-old allowed three earned runs on five hits, walking none while striking out nine on 96 pitches (66 strikes). Yajure has completed seven innings in five of his last six starts.

Garcia and Cabrera lined back-to-back singles and performed a double-steal off RHP Edgar Escobar in the seventh. Both scored on a two-out single to right by Diego Castillo . Gasper followed with a base hit, and Sands drove in two more with a triple to the wall in left-center.

Zack Gahagan greeted LHP Edgar Barclay with a leadoff triple in the eighth and scored on a groundout by Hurst. Barclay later stranded a two-out single by Gorman and closed the game with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Gahagan moved from second base to the mound in the bottom of the eighth and stranded a pair of two-out singles by Garcia and Cabrera to post his third scoreless pitching appearance.

All nine Tarpons scored at least one run. Cabrera (3-for-4, BB, 2R, SB) reached base four times. Olivares (2-for-4, BB, 2RBI, R), Garcia (2-for-5, R, SB), Gasper (2-for-4, 2R) and Sands (2-for-4, 3B, 2RBI, R) also had multi-hit games. Sands is on a season-best eight-game hitting streak.

Palma (1-for-5, GS, 4RBI, R) homered for the second-straight night and has now homered five times in 17 games since being activated off the 60-Day Injured List. Castillo (1-for-4, 2RBI, R) is now on a 13-game on-base streak.

The series concludes on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., with RHP Frank German (4-4, 4.00) slated to be activated off the 7-Day Injured List to make the start against RHP Alvaro Seijas (2-1, 3.35). Live play-by-play of the action will be available on the Tampa Tarpons Baseball Network.

On "Taco Thursday," fans can enjoy an all-you-can-eat Taco and Nacho bar for $10, House Margaritas for $6 and Coronas for $4 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Charleston 3, Columbia 1

Contreras Dominates, Holds Early Lead as Rainbows Sweep 'Flies

Starter fans 10 in seven strong, Dogs plate three early runs in victory

By Ryan Ladika / Charleston RiverDogs | August 14, 2019 11:33 PM

CHARLESTON, S.C. - The only thing Charleston missed through the first two games of the series was timely, early offense, and the RiverDogs made it happen in the finale to back a strong Roansy Contreras in a 3-1 win over the Columbia Fireflies Wednesday night in front of 3,760 at Riley Park.

The RiverDogs (64-58, 27-25), playing as the Charleston Rainbows in the series finale, scored three runs in the first two innings one night removed from earning a walk-off win in the ninth inning. The early barrage was more than enough for Contreras (9-5, 3.62), who turned in his best start of the season to seal the series sweep. The righty whiffed four of the first six hitters he faced, and fired 4 2/3 perfect innings before surrendering a no-doubt solo shot to Shervyen Newton, cutting the Rainbows' lead to 3-1.

Contreras was unfazed, setting down the next seven hitters he faced in order, with four more punchouts thrown in. The right-hander finished his night with seven strong frames complete, allowing just the solo home run in his outing. He tied his career-high in innings pitched as well as strikeouts, as he finished with 10 whiffs under his belt.

Southpaw Dalton Lehnen came on in the eighth to relieve Contreras, throwing frames of one-hit ball, fanning a pair to seal the win and earn his third save of the season with the RiverDogs.

Brandon Lockridge kicked off the action in the bottom of the first with a leadoff walk drawn against Columbia (47-71, 23-29) starter Christian James (3-9, 4.70). He swiped his 20th bag of the season during Oswald Peraza's at-bat, and advanced to third on a groundout by Canaan Smith.

Designated hitter Josh Breaux came through in the clutch with two outs, lining a soft single back up the middle to plate his teammate for his first RBI since he drove in three against the Hickory Crawdads August 10.

The Rainbows tacked on a couple more in the bottom of the second, making a mistake from James come back to haunt their in-state rivals. Max Burt, recently returned from a 12-game stint with the Double-A Trenton Thunder, was hit by a 2-2 offering with one out. The infielder advanced to second on a groundout by Eduardo Navas, and Lockridge stepped to the plate with an opportunity to build upon Charleston's early lead.

He did just that, lining the first pitch of the at-bat down the left field line. Burt scored easily from second, and Lockridge never stopped running, ending up at third base for his fourth triple of the season.

Oswald Peraza jumped on the very next pitch James threw, smacking a line drive off the right-hander on the mound. Lockridge came in to score the Rainbows' third run on the play before Smith fanned to end the inning. Overall, James finished with just 3 1/3 innings complete and the three markers allowed on five hits and four walks.

With the stolen bag, Lockridge became the fifth player in Charleston franchise history (circa 1980) to accrue 30 doubles, 10 homers and 20 stolen bases in one season.

Charleston completed its season series against the Fireflies winning 15 of 21 games, outscoring Columbia 90-61, and swept the series this week allowing three total runs on nine hits in the three contests. Columbia entered Wednesday hitting a lowly .193 (124-for-641) against Holy City pitching, and that number dropped even further to .188 (126-for-669) following the two-hit masterpiece authored by Contreras and Lehnen Wednesday night. To top it off, the Dogs posted a 2.30 ERA over the course of the 21 games against Columbia this season.

Now back in the thick of the playoff hunt, the Dogs remain two games back of the first-place Asheville Tourists and Augusta GreenJackets, as both clubs prevailed in their respective Wednesday night contests
