ALLENTOWN — Coming off back-to-back losses, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders looked to finally pickup their first win of the series in Lehigh Valley, but instead made it three straight losses, falling 7-1 to the IronPigs on Thursday.

After a scoreless 3 1/2 innings, the IronPigs (22-18) got on the board first after a Tyler Henson single allowed him to score on a Cameron Rupp double. Steve Susdorf followed with a double to score Rupp and give Lehigh Valley the 2-0 advantage.

Kyle Roller hit a solo home run in the top of the fifth to put the RailRiders (19-20) on the board, but were still down 2-1.

The IronPigs added to their lead in the bottom of the sixth when Darin Ruf singled and a Jim Murphy double advanced him to third. Susdorf belted another double, which allowed Ruf and Murphy to both score and make it a 4-1 game.

Murphy wasn’t done yet, nailing a solo home run at the bottom of the eighth to make it 5-1. Rupp walked and took second on a Susdorf single, followed by a Leandro Castro single that loaded the bases. Andres Blanco and Ronny Cedeno then hit run-scoring singles to make it 7-1.

Shane Greene earned the loss on the mound, pitching five innings for the RailRiders and dropping to 0-2 on the season. Barry Enright pitched a complete-game four-hitter for the IronPigs, earning his first win to make him 1-2.
