IronPigs Claim Finale, Split Series
Wade Posts Three Hits,
A three-spot in the first inning got the RailRiders off on the right foot. Donovan Solano drove in two runs while Gleyber Torres’ sac fly added a run that frame. In the second, Dustin Fowler’s RBI single made it 4-0.
That seemed to be enough for starter Chance Adams, who allowed one run on a Hector Gomez homer through six. But Nick Williams began the seventh with a triple to right-center. After Gomez whiffed, a wild pitch gave Williams the plate. Pedro Florimon grounded out before Jorge Flores worked a full-count, two-out walk that mean the end of Adams’ day.
Tyler Webb emerged from the bullpen and saw four straight IronPigs post hits, largely on soft, well-placed contact. RBI singles by Brock Stassi, Jorge Alfaro and Dylan Cozens had the RailRiders trailing, 5-4.
Williams began the eighth with a homer to right to round out the scoring.
The RailRiders threatened in the ninth against Pedro Beato, putting two men on base. However, Beato struck out Tyler Wade and induced a fly-out to center from Fowler to secure his minor league-best 19th save.
Lehigh Valley reliever Michael Mariot (4-2) earned the win. Webb (3-1) suffered the loss.
Adams gave up three runs on four hits and one walk over 6.2 innings while striking out six.
