Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 9, Toledo Mud Hens 4 (box)
Jacob Turner struggled again, and took some early hits, but hung in there to go six innings with four runs allowed. Dixon Machado doubled home Jacob Robson in the third to get the Hens on the board. They eventually tied things at 4-4 in the fourth on a two-run double by Harold Castro. Unfortunately Phillipe Aumont blew up for four runs in the eighth and the RailRiders cruised to victory.
Machado: 1-4, RBI, 2B, SO
Castro: 1-4, 2 RBI, 2B, 2 SO

Things started off quietly in this one as Anthony Castro gave the Flying Tigers five innings of two-run ball. Isaac Paredes remained red-hot, crushing his 12th home run, a two-run shot in the fifth inning. That opened the floodgates as the Flying Tigers erupted for six runs in the middle innings. However, the Cardinals dropped a four-run seventh inning of Fernando Perez and Burris Warner to get back in it. Things eventually went to 10 innings, and the Flying Tigers offense went nuts. They ripped off 10 consecutive hits, including two doubles and an bases clearing triple from Dylan Burdeaux as they scored nine runs in the inning to blow away the Cardinals.
Paredes: 2-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 BB, SO
Shepherd: 3-5, 2 R, 4 RBI, 2B, BB, SO
Pinero:4-5, 3 R, RBI, HR, BB

The Renegades blew up Tigers starter, Chance Kirby, with a four-run third inning and poured it on. The offense didn’t have any answers. Eric De La Rosa had a pair of hits, and Sam McMillan doubled, but that was just about all the Tigers lineup could muster on Tuesday.
De La Rosa: 2-3
McMillan: 1-3, 2B, SO
Kirby (L): 5.0 IP, 6 R, 5 ER, 7 H, BB
Coming Up Next: Carlos Guzman goes for the Tigers on Wednesday evening. The Renegades’ starter is still TBA.
