The Scranton Wilks Barre Railriders pitching and offense dominant once again as they beat Rochester Red Wings 8-1 improving to 48-53 on season. Yankees pitcher Jonathan Loáisiga made a rehab outing yesterday for Scranton as he looked sharp with a quick 1/2/3 inning. Randy Vazquez got the start as everyone thought it would be Nestor Cortes but he ended up staying in New York and will start for them this weekend against Houston. Vazquez was outstanding and dominant from the beginning.
Randy Vazquez (W 3-8) went 6.0 innings, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 er, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts and 1 hr. Rochester hitters couldn't really get anything going against him and rest of their pitchers the whole night. Jonathan Loáisiga pitched 1.0 innings, 0 hits, 0 runs, 0 er, 0 walks, 0 strikeouts and looks ready. Anthony Misiewicz was the third guy out of the bullpen going 1.0 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, 0 er, 0 walks and 3 strikeouts. Last it was Greg Weissert pitching 1.0 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, 0 er, 0 walk and 1 strikeout. Their pitching has had a combined 30 strikeouts in two games against Rochester hitters.
The Scranton Wilks Barre Railriders offense was great once again not giving up at bats, working the count, getting runners over, scoring with them on base and a home run from Oswaldo Cabrera. Franchy Cordero, Andres Chaparro, Everson Pereira, Austin Wells and Oswaldo Cabrera all had contributions to help this team win. This offense was well balanced, ready for the pitch and took advantage of it.
After the game we had an opportunity to interview Zac Houston, manager Shelley Duncan and outfielder/infielder Oswaldo Cabrera.
