RailRiders Blasted by Durham
NORFOLK, Va. - The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders lost 16-3 to the Durham Bulls on Friday evening. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton joined the RailRiders on MLB rehab assignments, but the duo could not help Scranton/Wilkes-Barre overcome a 16-hit attack.
Durham opened the scoring in the bottom of the first with a leadoff home run from Jake Cronenworth. The Bulls added seven runs on six hits and an error in the home half of the second off RailRiders starter Daniel Camarena, keyed by seven straight batters reaching base and a grand slam from Nate Lowe.
In the top of the third, Gosuke Katoh and Billy Burns each singled. With one down, Stanton hit a towering home run over the 32-foot high wall in right, cutting the deficit to 8-3.
The Bulls would answer with five runs on five hits in the bottom of the third and plate three more in the fourth.
Judge went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his first rehab appearance after missing nearly two months with an oblique strain. Stanton finished 1-for-3 with the home run; his fourth this week split between Tampa and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Camarena (1-3) took the loss after surrendering 12 runs, 10 earned, on 11 hits over 2.1 innings. Austin Pruitt (3-2) notched the win with nine strikeouts over five innings.
Cronenworth and Kean Wong each finished one hit shy of the cycle for Durham; Cronenworth missed by a single and Wong by a two-base hit.
16 runs is the most that the RailRiders have allowed in a game this season and seven runs is the most in any one inning this year.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Durham continue this series on Saturday at 6:35 p.m. Raynel Espinal and the RailRiders will face Cronenworth as an opener for the Bulls.
