Quick hit: An A-Bomb from A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez hit a loud out in his first at bat in a Scranton uniform - a long flyball to right field. That turned out to be a sign of what was to come because in his second at bat, he hit the ball to right field again but this time it went over the wall and gave the Rail Riders a 2-0 lead. You have to like seeing Rodriguez able to drive the ball to the opposite field. In other news, Michael Pineda has seven strikeouts so far and his velocity is up and his movement is good. So far, he's getting the strikeouts on fastballs and sliders.

More to come later...
