The IronRail Series continues as the North Division Champion IronPigs (79-53) play the finale of a four-game, home series against the Scranton/WB RailRiders (67-63) at Coca-Cola Park... With a 5-3 victory yesterday, the Pigs have won back-to-back contests and built their lead in the North back to a franchise-record 11.0 games set earlier this season on Aug. 5. Although just 9-10 since reaching its season apex at 70-43 (.619) Aug. 5, Lehigh Valley owns a 50-28 record since June 3 -- going from 0.5 games back to 11.0 games ahead... The RailRiders -- the Yankees' top affiliate -- have gone just 12-16 since July 29. Still, the RailRiders trail by just 1.5-games in the IL Wild Card Standings... The Pigs next wrap up the regular season with a seven-game road trip beginning in Pawtucket tomorrow.
