NORFOLK, Va. — Scott Sizemore continues to be the hottest hitter on the RailRiders.

On Thursday night, the infielder went 2 for 4 with a pair of RBIs, including the game-winning tally in the top of the ninth as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre topped Norfolk, 4-3 at Harbor Park.

Every time in the game when the RailRiders scored, the Tides answered right back, until the ninth. That’s when Sizemore singled in Ramon Flores (2 for 4, 3 runs scored) to put the RailRiders in front. Matt Daley came in to close for SWB in the bottom of the ninth and had a 1-2-3 inning to secure the victory.

After SWB took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first and an RBI-groundout by Russ Canzler, Norfolk equaled the score when Caleb Joseph — brother of RailRiders infielder Corban Joseph — singled in a run.

In the third, Sizemore doubled in Flores for a 2-1 lead. Yet again, the Tides answered as Brett Wallace laced a run-scoring double to tie it up at 2-2.

A sacrifice fly by Adonis Garcia in the top of the eighth put the RailRiders in front 3-2. But Caleb Joseph (2 for 4) boomed a solo homer in the bottom of the frame for the equalizer. The round-tripper came off Mark Montgomery (1-0), who allowed just his second run this season in 12 innings.

CBS Sports Network, MiLB reach pact

Minor League Baseball games will air nationally on the CBS Sports Network this season on Minor League Baseball’s Game of the Week.

CBS said Thursday that 15 games will be televised this spring and summer. The network can change its schedule if a major league star is set to make a rehab appearance with a minor league affiliate.

The first game was broadcast Thursday night, when the Indianapolis Indians, the Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, visited the Pawtucket Red Sox, Boston’s top farm team.

Only the games for May have been released and the rest of the schedule will be announced at a later time. The scheduled games for the month are: May 8, Lehigh Valley at Charlotte; May 15, Albuquerque at Fresno; May 22, Durham at Columbus; and May 29, Iowa at Memphis.
