Franco's walk-off home run caps IronPigs rally

Maikel Franco hit a two-run home run with two outs in the ninth inning to give the IronPigs a 3-2 come-from-behind, walk-off win over Buffalo Sunday night at Coca-Cola Park.

The 'Pigs entered the ninth trailing 2-0, and having gone 21 straight innings without a run.

But Freddy Galvis broke that drought with a two-out RBI single, and Franco followed with his game-winning blast.

Phillippe Aumont (3-1, 3.21) picked up the win in relief.

The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the IronPigs.

The 'Pigs (59-70) will be off on Monday before opening a four-game series in Pawtucket Tuesday night.
