TOLEDO, OH (June 25, 2022) –The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders dropped Friday night’s game 8-3 to the Toledo Mud Hens. Armando Alvarez drove in two runs while notching his seventh homer of the year.

Hayden Wesneski struggled in his three innings of work. The right-hander was tagged for three runs on five hits including three doubles in the second inning. He gave up a two-run home run in the bottom of the third to Kerry Carpenter, who was making his Triple-A debut after swatting 22 homers with Double-A Erie.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre got on the board with a solo shot from Alvarez to make it 3-1. The homer tied him with Oswald Peraza for the team lead in home runs. It was his second of the series. The Mud Hens tacked on a run in the fourth and a pair in the fifth. They went on to homer three times in the game.

Alvarez would drive in a run on a groundout in the fifth. Another would be plated in the ninth on a double play as the RailRiders dropped an 8-3 decision on Saturday. Wesneski (2-7) suffered the loss and Chase Anderson (3-3) pitched five strong innings for the win.
