The RailRiders out-hit their competition, but it wasn't enough to overcome them in the run column. Vidal Nuno gets the start today for SWB, and it may be worth watching if Ivan Nova ends up hitting the DL. Nuno has been very, very good.

Jose Ramirez returned for the first time since Spring Training and was strong in relief of a decent outing by Nik Turley. Ramirez won't be coming out of the bullpen again, so no one panic. Zach Nuding starts for the Thunder today at 7:05 pm.

High-A Tampa Yankees: L 4-9 vs. Clearwater Threshers

CF Mason Williams 0-4, BB, K
2B Rob Refsnyder 1-3, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, SB, E4 - missed catch error (4th), 14 game hitting streak, 11 for his last 32 (.344)

Rigoberto Arrebato 2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, BB, 2 K

Back to back three-run innings for the Threshers in the fifth and sixth innings kind of put this one out of reach for Tampa, but Rob Refsnyder continues to tear the cover off the ball. Corey Black gets the start today at 6:30 pm.

Cesar Vargas 4.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, WP - four groundouts, three flyouts
Brett Gerritse 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
Dietrich Enns 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, BB, 5 K - 21 of 34 pitches for strikes

Three errors by the Intimidators (who have a pitcher named Storm Throne, which is friggin fantastic) helped the RiverDogs to a win in the series opener against Kannapolis. Rafael DePaula gets the start for Charleston today at 6:05 pm.
