ALLENTOWN — After tying the game in the top of the ninth to send it into extra innings, the RailRiders fell short as Cody Overbeck hit a game-winning sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 11th to lead Lehigh Valley to a 5-4 victory.


Scranton/Wilkes-Barre jumped out early, scoring three runs in the top of the first. Bobby Wilson led the way with an RBI single, scoring Addison Maruszak and Zoilo Almonte. In the ensuing at-bat, Alberto Gonzalez ripped a liner to left field to give the RailRiders a 3-0 advantage.


Despite the fast start, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre failed to score in the next seven innings. Meanwhile, the IronPigs tacked four runs to take a 4-3 lead heading into the top of the ninth.


Cody Grice smashed a triple to right field in the top of the ninth with one out to get things started for the RailRiders. Almonte took advantage of the runner in scoring position with a single to tie the game at four.


After a scoreless 10th inning, Grice and Almonte hit back-to-back singles and Dan Johnson walked to load the bases in the top of the 11th, but Josh Bell struck out looking to end the scoring threat.


Ivan Nova pitched six and two-thirds innings for the RailRiders, allowing five hits and one earned run while striking out four. Nova remains undefeated in three starts with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with two victories and a 2.04 ERA.


Cesar Jimenez earned the victory as he worked his way out of a jam in the top half of the 11th.


The RailRiders return home today to face off against Rochester in a doubleheader starting at 5:35 p.m.
