ALLENTOWN – The Lehigh Valley IronPigs survived a sixth-inning surge by the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and went on to claim victory on Monday night, 8-3. The RailRiders cut the deficit to one run in the sixth, but the IronPigs added five runs late to win comfortably.

The RailRiders were held without an extra base hit as IronPig pitchers allowed seven hits and eight strikeouts. Ronnier Mustelier recorded the only multi-hit outing for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with two hits.

Perci Garnier held Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in check, allowing two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings. Mike MacDougal came in to get Garnier out of a sixth inning jam, and JC Ramirez earned a rare two-inning save in a five-run win.

Chris Bootcheck was touched up for five earned runs on 6 2/3 innings. Bootcheck struck out four and allowed nine hits.

The RailRiders scored both of their runs with a two-out rally in the sixth. With runners at first and second, Ronnier Mustelier singled to left field. Melky Mesa scored on the play. The inning was capped when Adonis Garcia slapped a single through the right side to drive home Dan Johnson. The rally cut the lead to 3-2, but the RailRiders would get no closer.

Pete Orr and Cesar Hernandez scored three runs for the IronPigs. Orr led the way with three hits including a double.
