IronPigs win, Franco homers again

The IronPigs beat Syracuse in the final meeting between the two teams this season Tuesday night. Maikel Franco homered again in the win, his 4th home run in the 5 game series.

Franco broke open a 1-1 game with a grand slam in the 5th, shortly after he made a spectacular defensive play in the field.  The home run turned out to be a game winner after Syracuse rallied and cut the IronPigs' lead to just a run.

The IronPigs will now host the RailRiders in their final home series of the season.
