RailRiders Drop Finale in Toledo
Dustin Fowler Collects Two More Hits

Toledo, Ohio – The SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/ New York Yankees) were held scoreless for just the third time on the season Monday night at Fifth Third Field. The Toledo Mud Hens (22-27) grabbed a 5-0 win to avoid getting swept in the four-game series. The RailRiders (28-19) finished their swing through the Buckeye State 4-2.

Drew VerHagen (3-3) scattered six hits and two walks over 7.1 innings for the Mud Hens. The right-hander struck out five. Luis Cessa (2-5) absorbed the defeat despite a quality start. The right-hander allowed an RBI-double to Argenis Diaz in the second and a solo shot to Bryan Holaday in the fifth. He scattered three hits and a walk across six innings with four strikeouts.

Michael Almanzar mashed a three-run homer off J.R. Graham in the eighth inning to cap the scoring.

Dustin Fowler finished 2-for-4 with a pair of singles. Fowler has eight hits in his last three games. Tyler Austin finished 1-for-3 and has collected a knock in all three games during his Major League rehab assignment.
