Coming into the series against Pawtcket, Carmen Angelini had just one hit in the month of August. Now the RailRiders shortstop has a home run in back-to-back games.


Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got another long ball from Angelini in the nine-spot and the RailRiders claimed another victory over Pawtucket on Saturday, pounding the PawSox 9-4 at McCoy Field.


Angelini sent a 1-2 pitch in the second inning over the fence in left to give the RailRiders (61-66) an early 2-0 lead they never relinquished.


All but one batter recorded a hit as the RailRiders racked up 17 total. Rob Refsnyder, Zelous Wheeler (two doubles) and Taylor Dugas had three apiece.


Pawtucket (71-57) got home runs from Alex Hassan and Bryce Brentz.


Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starter Nik Turley held off the Sox despite some control issues. The left-hander struck out four and walked five in 5.1 innings of work to pick up the win.


Another southpaw, Matt Tracy, will start today’s 1:05 p.m. game against Pawtucket’s Steven Wright.
