COLUMBUS, Ohio — Coming off a thrilling extra-inning win to close out a four-game series against Toledo, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders found themselves on the losing end once more in a 3-1 decision against the Columbus Clippers on Saturday night at Huntington Park.

The RailRiders (21-20) only score of the game came in the top of the fourth innings after Dan Johnson was walked then advanced to second after a Josh Bell walk. Johnson reached third base on a Thomas Neal single to right field, but then took home on a Clippers (25-18) error to make the score 1-0.

The Clippers fought back in the bottom of the fourth after Matt LaPorta doubled, but was then brought home on a Lonnie Chisenhall home run to give the Clippers the 2-1 lead.

In the bottom of the sixth Chisenhall was hit by a pitch and then took second after a Matt Carson sacrifice bunt. A wild pitch by RailRiders pitcher Chase Whitley allowed Chisenhall to take third but then made it home after a Cedric Hunter sacrifice fly to center field to increase the Clippers’ lead to 3-1.

In the top of the ninth inning Bobby Wilson singled for the RailRiders and scored when Corban Joseph homered to tie the game up at 3-3. However, the Clippers came right back in the bottom of the frame. After Matt Carson walked, stole second and was sacrificed to third, he scored on a hit by Chris Wallace to end the game at 4-3.

The RailRiders and Clippers will play again today at 6:05 p.m. at Huntington Park.
