Davis’ homer leads Scranton/WB to 5-4 win over Durham Bulls

Ike Davis hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning, leading the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders to a 5-4 win over the Durham Bulls on Saturday.

The home run by Davis capped a four-run inning and gave the RailRiders a 5-3 lead after Gary Sanchez hit a two-run single earlier in the inning.

Following the big inning, the Bulls cut into the deficit in the eighth inning when Richie Shaffer drew a bases-loaded walk, scoring J.P. Arencibia.

Durham missed an additional scoring opportunity in the eighth, when Jaff Decker grounded out with the bases loaded to end the inning.

Scranton/WB starter Dietrich Enns (4-1) picked up the win despite allowing three runs and nine hits over five innings. Opposing starter Austin Pruitt (7-6) took the loss in the International League game after giving up five runs and nine hits over six innings. Jonathan Holder pitched two scoreless innings for his first save of the season.
