SCRANTON | For the second straight start Danny Rosenbaum pitched good enough to win it, but didn’t.

Rosenbaum allowed seven hits in 5.2 innings and struck out just one while walking four, but he allowed just two runs as the the Syracuse Chiefs lost their sixth of the past seven, this one to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 5-1.

The RailRiders - Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees - scored three times in the bottom of the eighth inning off of Tanner Roark who after a hot start has hit a pretty rough patch. Roark allowed three hits and two of the runs were earned.

Shortstop Zach Walters was taken out of the game after being picked off at first base in the seventh inning.

Chris Marrero was 2-for-4 at the plate on Sunday and is 12-for-his-last-34 with two doubles, four homers, nine RBI, and five runs scored.
