SYRACUSE N.Y. - After losing 5-4 in a continued game from Thursday, the RailRiders bounced back to shut out Syracuse 6-0 at NBT Bank Stadium Friday.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre jumped out early as Addison Maruszak hit an RBI single with the bases loaded to give the RailRiders a 2-0 in the top of the first.

The RailRiders extended their lead in the top of the fourth when Brent Lillibridge and Randy Ruiz each homered, giving Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a 5-0 advantage.

Meanwhile on defense, Brett Marshall didn’t allow a hit until the bottom of third inning. In five innings of work, Marshall allowed two hits and no runs and struck out six in the win.

Jim Miller picked up where Marshall left off, pitching two innings in relief while allowing no runs or hits and striking out two.

The RailRiders added an insurance in the top of the sixth when Maruszak scored on a fielder’s choice.

In the continuation of Thursday’s game, the RailRiders held a 3-2 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth but failed to hang on as the Chiefs tacked on three runs.

Zach Walters hit an RBI double, while Josh Johnson added an RBI single to give Syracuse a 5-3 advantage.

Casey Stevenson hit a sacrifice fly in the top of the seventh to cut the deficit to 5-4, but the RailRiders couldn’t mount a comeback.

The RailRiders will face off against Pawtucket on the road today at 6:05 p.m.
