INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Indians sent 10 men to the plate in four-run eighth inning to beat the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, 9-7, on a hot and humid Sunday afternoon at Victory Field.

Zelous Wheeler had a costly error in the eighth that allowed the Indians to score three unearned runs.

SWB battled back from two different deficits in the seesaw affair. The first rally occurred after Matt Hague put the Tribe up 3-1 with a three-run shot in the home first.

With runners at first and second, Jose Pirela evened at 3-3 the game on a two-run double to left field in the top of the second.

The RailRiders were forced to comeback once again in the third after giving the lead back in the bottom of the second. Adonis Garcia opened the inning with a double and took third on a ground ball to the right side by Wheeler. Garcia scored on a wild pitch by Indianapolis starter Jeff Locke.

The Indians’ Michael Martinez chased Bruce Billings in the fourth with a solo home run that swung the game back in favor of Indianapolis at 5-4. SWB answered with three unanswered runs in the following frames on run-scoring base hits by Francisco Arcia, Scott Sizemore and Pirela.

The RailRiders conclude an eight-game road trip against the Indians at 7:05 p.m. today.
