Daniel Camarena sets new Triple-A career-high with 10 strikeouts in victory
MOOSIC, PA - The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders continued their home momentum, taking a second-straight game against the Columbus Clippers, 3-1, Tuesday night at PNC Field.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre pitcher Daniel Camarena accomplished a season-high and Triple-A career-high of ten strikeouts over 6.2 innings. The ten strikeouts came over the first five innings when he needed just 66 pitches to shut down the Clippers, setting up the decisive three-run inning for Scranton/Wilkes Barre's offense.
The contest between the RailRiders and Clippers remained scoreless until the fifth inning when the RailRiders established a lead. Thairo Estrada nailed a two-run triple, plating Ryan Lavarnway and Billy Burns for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Keeping the momentum, Tyler Wade lofted a sacrifice fly to shallow center field, but Estrada forced an errant throw home and scored, putting the RailRiders in the lead 3-0.
Columbus scored their first run of the night in the top of the seventh inning from a two-out single by Ka'ai Tom, making it 3-1. It was the only time the Clippers put a tally on the board thanks to strong performances by Camarena, Domingo Acevedo and Stephen Tarpley. The RailRiders pitching staff has struck out 29 batters over 18.0 innings in the first two games of the series.
The RailRiders will continue the series against the Clippers Wednesday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. For tickets and more information, call (570) 969-BALL or slide to www.swbrailriders.com/tickets.
