With a chance to sweep the Saltdogs, Cleburne had just five hits Wednesday night.
The Railroaders blew a five-run lead but scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning.
Pichi Balet's two-run triple followed up Nick Van Stratten's game-tying triple and the Railroaders held on for a series-opening win.
Valentin hit a two-run homer and went 4-for-4 with three RBI, and the Railroaders took their second consecutive series.
