Scranton/Wilkes-Barre scored twice in the top of the ninth inning to claim an 8-7 win over the Mud Hens at Fifth Third Field tonight.

Former Hen Scott Sizemore hit a grounder past Toledo closer Kevin Whelan up the middle for a two-run single as the RailRiders overcame a one-run deficit.

Toledo got the potential game-tying run to third base in the bottom of the ninth but could not score off former major-league reliever Heath Bell.

Ben Guez had smashed a home run in the bottom of the eighth to break a 6-6 tie.

Guez also had an RBI double for Toledo, while Danny Worth had a run-scoring triple and walked twice.
