Zarraga's homer not enough in 4-1 loss to Redhawks
05/23/2017 4:16 PM -
CLEBURNE, Texas -- Shawn Zarraga hit a solo home run in the second inning, but the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks used a go-ahead two-run home run in the seventh inning en route to a 4-1 win over the Cleburne Railroaders at The Depot Tuesday afternoon. 
Zarraga clubbed the franchise's first home run -- an opposite-field solo shot to right field -- but the Railroaders (2-3) managed just five hits and scored a lone run for the second consecutive day.
Jorge Martinez gave up just one run with one walk and five strikeouts over six innings of work, but Cortland Cox -- making his fourth appearance in six games -- gave up a pair of runs on the Ryan Pineda homer and was pegged with the loss after just one inning of work.
Five different Railroaders registered a hit, including Maikol Gonzalez and Geraldo Valentin -- who both had hits in Cleburne's four-hit, one-run performance Monday night -- but Fargo-Moorhead starter Tyler Alexander gave up just the one run and five hits in the American Association's first complete game of 2017. 
Bryce Beeler pitched a scoreless inning of relief with one walk and a pair of strikeouts, while Kyle Westwood gave up one run on a pair of hits with a walk in the ninth inning. 
The two teams wrap of the three-game series with another 11:05 a.m. first pitch Wednesday. Tickets are still available and can be purchased online at or in person at the box office located outside of The Depot at Cleburne Station.
