RailRiders, Brett Marshall win afternoon game

More than 5,750 fans saw a rare occurrence Wednesday — a quality start by Brett Marshall.

Actually, even better, it was one of Marshall's best starts in his professional career, as he tossed eight innings, allowing just five hits and one walk.

Powered by the struggling 23-year-old pitcher, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders improved to just four games below .500, defeating the Toledo Mud Hens, 4-1.

The RailRiders' bats went silent the last seven innings of the game, but that was OK, as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's first inning — highlighted by a Randy Ruiz home run — provided all the support Marshall needed.

Dellin Betances, the RailRiders' brilliant starter-turned-reliever, closed the game out in shaky fashion, throwing as many balls as strikes and walking two batters.
