PAWTUCKET, R.I. —What started off as a bad road trip for the RailRiders ended with many positives.

After dropping three in a row to Lehigh Valley to begin the eight-game trip last week, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre concluded with four wins in five games, including Tuesday afternoon’s 3-0 win over Pawtucket, which also was SWB’s third straight victory.

The RailRiders, who are off today and return to PNC Field on Thursday to start a four-game series with Rochester at 6:35 p.m., got a strong pitching outing from starter Shane Greene.

The right-hander tossed six innings allowing just four hits and striking out five to pick up his first win this season as a RailRider. Jose Ramirez (1 1/3 inning) and Robert Coello (1 2/3) finished off the shutout for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Coello fanned four in his outing to pick up his second save of the season.

The only real trouble Greene was in came in the bottom of the fourth when Daniel Nava singled with one out and Brandon Snyder doubled with two outs. Nava tried to score on the double, but was nailed at the plate on the throw from Adonis Garcia and the relay from Zelous Wheeler.

Garcia also led the RailRiders’ offense going 4 for 5 finishing a triple shy of the cycle, with a pair of RBIs to lift his season batting average to a team-high .340. In the third inning, he got SWB on the board with a solo shot.

With the RailRiders looking for insurance in the seventh, Garcia came through again. This time with runners on first and third, he singled to left scoring Antoan Richardson for a 2-0 lead. Ramon Flores added a run-scoring single in the seventh to put SWB ahead 3-0.

Snyder doubled to start the bottom of the seventh against Ramirez, who then walked the next batter. But the righty got the next three batters to end the inning.

The RailRiders have a short four-game set with the Red Wings starting Thursday before they head back out on the road for another eight-game trip out west to Louisville and Indianapolis.
