The IronPigs dispatched the Bisons and took the series last night behind the arm of some kid named Aaron. Enter the RailMonkeys, as the 2015 IronRail Series continues.
This season’s IronRail series with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailYankees consists of 18 games–10 in Moosic and 8 in Allentown. Thus far, the RailFrogs own a 2-1 lead. The squad from Moosic is also in first place in the IL-North, 13.5 games ahead of the Mighty Pigs. They come in having taken two of three up in Rochester. The series will continue a week from Monday, (6/29) as the Porcupine-riders return for three more beat-downs.

Other News: “July 4” caps featured here earlier in the week are currently on sale in the Majestic Clubhouse Store. They look better in person, but I’ve yet to purchase one due to a weird promise I made to the baseball gods on Wednesday night (story to come).
