PAWTUCKET, R.I. — Pawtucket designated hitter Brandon Snyder drove home four runs to lead the Red Sox past the slumping Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 6-3 on Saturday night in the opener of a four-game series at McCoy Stadium.

Snyder hit a three-run double to cap a four-run, two-out rally in the third inning that put the game out of reach at 4-0. He followed with a solo home run to left in the eighth inning.

With runners on the corners and two outs in the third inning, Ryan Roberts started the scoring with an RBI single to center against RailRiders starter Brian Gordon (2-4). Ryan Lavarnway then singled to load the bases for Snyder, who doubled off the warning track in left and emptied the bases.

Dean Anna got the RailRiders on the scoreboard with a home run in the sixth inning. Jose Pirela’s two-run blast to left made the score 4-3.

Snyder’s home run against reliever Branden Pinder in the eighth inning made it 5-3. Corey Brown delivered a two-out RBI double later in the inning to complete the scoring.

Brandon Workman (3-1) allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings while recording six strikeouts for Pawtucket (25-19). Gordon went 6 1/3 innings for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and allowed four runs on eight hits.

Game two of the series is slated for 1:05 p.m. Sunday. Right-hander Rubby De La Rosa (2-3, 3.40) will get the ball for the PawSox, while righty Zach Nuding (1-2, 11.57) is slated to start for the RailRiders.
