Scrappers offense flummoxed by Cyclone pitching
Rainy Lara had the Scrappers’ number Monday night. That is, after the first inning. They had a promising start, when Tyler Naquin doubled with one out. He was promptly singled home by Charlie Valerio to secure an early one run lead.

Early Cyclone offense dooms Scrappers in 10-5 loss
Early deficits are hard to recover from. That’s exactly the prospect that the Scrappers faced Sunday, as they fell behind early to the Brooklyn Cyclones. The 5-0 hole after two was too much to overcome, as the Cyclones continued to pile on en route to a 10-5 victory.

Sever’s first career blast lead’s Scrappers to 3-2 win
Eastwood Field is due for a name change. Eastwood Wetlands, maybe? Or even, Eastwood Atoll. Whatever it is, it’s wet. That didn’t stop the Scrappers from entertaining the Brooklyn Cyclones, though, on a muddy diamond that looked like it would be better served hosting a football game. The Scrappers won 3-2.

Scrappers win rain-shortened contest
Mother nature doesn’t want the Scrappers and Yankees to play baseball. Or at least it would seem that way. After heavy storms forced a cancellation of Thursday night’s affair, she interrupted the first of Friday’s doubleheader, forcing an abrupt end to what was supposed to be a doubleheader. With the Scrappers leading 5-3 in the top of seventh, a small but severe storm moved through that soaked the field, ending the first game, and causing a cancellation of the second game. The early ending did benefit the Scrappers, though, as they were able to pick up the win and earn a split in the rain shortened series.

Scrapper offense delivers in 9-3 win over Crosscutters
The Scrappers racked up 17 hits en route to a 9-3-blowout victory over the Williamsport Crosscutters Tuesday night. The offensive output was probably the result of some frustration for an offense that has had some struggles as of late. In their three prior games, the offense had only managed nine runs on 17 hits, exactly their output Tuesday.

Garcia provides dramatics in 2-1 victory
A struggling Robel Garcia provided a walk-off victory, as the Mahoning Valley Scrappers would split their series with a dramatic 2-1 victory on Sunday Night. Garcia had already been demoted from Lake County, and has been struggling in Mahoning before his walk-off hit.

Mahoning Valley offense jammed up by Jamestown
The Scrapper offense probably wishes they could have stayed a few extra nights in Jamestown. After collecting 15 hits in Friday’s twin bill against the Jammers in Jamestown, they only collected two hits at Eastwood Field in a 5-2 loss Saturday night.

Scrappers, Jammers halted by rain
The Scrappers traveled to Jamestown seeking to make the most of their short two game road trip. They got off to a good start Thursday night, jumping out to a 6-3 lead early on against the Jammers. The weather failed to cooperate, however, as heavy rain forced the game to be suspended after just three innings of play.
