I am running late today, so it is a bullet point kind of day…
- In a game that went back and forth, Durham took a two run lead in the first, only to have the RailRiders pull ahead 5-2 in the fourth. The Bulls scored four in the fifth for a 6-5 advantage, but Scranton once more had an answer, plating two runs in the sixth and another in the eighth for an 8-6 lead.
- A pair of former Yankees came up big in the bottom of the ninth, as Justin Christian singled and Wilson Betemit homered, sending the game to extra innings.
- Both teams had a chance to pull ahead in extras, including the top of the twelfth, when Scranton had runners on the corners with no outs.
- It was a homer by Zelous Wheeler, just back from the DL, that put the RailRiders ahead for good in the top of the thirteenth. Dean Anna singled and scored on a single by Russ Canzler for some insurance, as Scranton won 10-8.
