Lail Sets Tone in SWB Shutout Win


RailRiders Claim 2-1 Series Lead






Lawrenceville, Ga. - The potent pitching of Brady LailDietrich Enns and J.R. Graham combined on a five-hit shutout as the SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) blanked the Gwinnett Braves (Atlanta Braves) in a critical Game 3 of the Governors' Cup Championship Series on Thursday night, 3-0. SWB owns a 2-1 series lead and sits one win short of the franchise's second-ever Governors' Cup crown and first since 2008.


The run scoring came early with RBI hits from Chris Parmelee and Kyle Higashioka in the first frame to plate Mark Payton and Donovan Solano. The second inning began with a line-drive homer off the immense retaining wall in left from Pete Kozma.


Lail handled things from there, firing 6.1 scoreless innings. The right-hander struck out five, walked none and had faced three over the minimum before he plunked Sean Kazmar, Jr. and got the hook in the seventh. Enns entered and struck out Reid Brignac looking before Tyler Moore lined out to short.


Gwinnett's best chance came in the eighth with a Kyle Kubitza single and a hit-and-run poke by Braeden Schlehuber to put men at the corners with nobody out. Enns rebounded, striking out Emilio Bonifacio and Mel Rojas, Jr. in succession. SWB manager Al Pedrique then called upon Graham, who whiffed former RailRider Ronnier Mustelier to put a bow on the eighth.


In the ninth, Graham worked around a two-out walk of Brignac, getting Moore to fly out to center field to end it.


Game 4 in the best-of-five series takes place at 7:05 p.m. at Coolray Field on Friday night. SWB'sDan Camarena (NR) will face a to-be-announced hurler.


Season tickets for the 2017 season are now on sale. Should SWB advance to the Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game, the RailRiders staff will host a watch party at Revello's Café Pizza in Old Forge, Pa. on Tuesday, Sept. 20 beginning at 8 p.m. There will be pizza and drink specials, raffles and prizes from the RailRiders. To purchase tickets or to find out more information, call 570-969-BALL (2255) or visit swbrailriders.com.


OFF THE RAILS:


The RailRiders led the minors with a franchise-record 24 shutouts in the regular season. Three of SWB's five playoff wins during this run have been shutouts.


SWB's 47 road wins tied with Nashville for the most in Triple-A this season. The team has gone 3-0 on the road during these playoffs, all shutout wins.


The RailRiders have gone 5-0 at Coolray Field this season between the regular campaign and playoffs combined. Since the Braves moved their top affiliate to suburban Atlanta in 2009, the SWB franchise has won 26 of 32 at Coolray Field including all three playoff meetings in Lawrenceville.


Since Gwinnett scored six runs in Game 1's opening inning, the G-Braves have amassed just two runs over the last 26.1 innings.


Donovan Solano went 2-for-3 in Game 3 with a double, two bruises and a run scored.


Pete Kozma enjoyed a 2-for-4 night with a lined single in addition to his homer.


Chris Parmelee walked twice and finished 1-for-3 with an RBI.

'Ducks Complete ELCS Sweep with 2-1 Win over Trenton






The 2016 came to a close for the Thunder with a 2-1 defeat to the Akron RubberDucks in Game Three of the Eastern League Championship Series on Friday night at ARM & HAMMER Park. 


With the victory, Akron completed a sweep of the Thunder winning the series three games to none. Akron won the fifth Championship in their franchise's history and first since becoming the RubberDucks prior to the 2014 campaign.


Akron used a dazzling pitching performance from Nick Pasquale, Cole Sulser and Louis Head to lock down the victory. The Thunder got their lone run in the fifth inning with Sebastian Valle smashed a solo home run off the billboards in left field. Following an infield single from Michael O'Neill in the sixth, Akron pitching retired the final 12 batters of the game to finish their victory.


Thunder starter Justus Sheffield allowed a lone run in 4.1 innings and was lifted following his eighty-third pitch of the night. Yankees rehabber Anthony Swarzak entered and allowed Greg Allen to reach on an infield single and steal two bases to get himself into scoring position. An Eric Stamets sac fly proved to be the difference in the game as Akron scored their run against Swarzak in the 0.2 innings pitched.


Dillon McNamara, JP Feyereisen and Tyler Jones finished the game on the mound for the Thunder. The team combined for 14 strikeouts in the defeat.


ARM & HAMMER Park won't be dark for long as the Thunder host the Second Annual World Famous Case's Pork Roll Eating Championship from 12-4pm on Saturday September 24. For more information, visit www.EatPorkRoll.com

Promote Enns and Gallegos to the Show and stop the tepid theories about the former's upside. Both could pitch better in relief than just about anyone pitching relief for us now. If Enns hadn't pitched so many innings, he'd be better in the rotation than everyone now in it except Tanaka.

Both are Rule 5 eligible this offseason, and both deserve a chance. I add both and dump some of the other garbage off the roster to make room. Even if Enns failed as a starter he's proven the last month he can also pitch out of the pen. He could be a swingman type in the pen.
