BUFFALO, NY — The RailRiders got out of Buffalo with a 4-1 victory in the last of a three-game series on Thursday night.

The game was deadlocked at a 1-1 tie until Scott Sizemore pounded a two-run double off Mike Zagurski (3-1) in the eighth inning and the RailRiders never looked back. They added another run in the ninth when Zoilo Almonte walked with the bases loaded.

The Bisons were the first to get on the board thanks to a fielding error by Sizemore and allowing Kevin Pillar to score in the first inning.

On the subject of unusual scoring plays, Adonis Garcia struck out swinging on a wild pitch in the third inning as International League (IL) June Player of the Month Jose Pirela crossed the plate for the first RailRiders run.

Starter Chris Leroux threw six innings of one-hit ball for a no-decision for the RailRiders. His counterpart, Bisons pitcher Esmil Rogers, scattered one run on four hits over six.

Francisco Rondon (3-0) picked up the win in relief as Diego Moreno recorded his second save.

The RailRiders return home tonight to open up a nine game home stand starting against Buffalo. There will also be post-game fireworks and the game will be televsied live at 7 p.m. on WQMY.
