David Hurlbut and two relievers combined to surrender just four hits to the best offense in the league and the Rochester Red Wings avoided a four-game sweep with a 5-1 win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders Thursday night at PNC Field.

The RailRiders (86-51) took an early 1-0 lead as Hurlbut (10-8) walked rehabbing Matt Holliday with two outs and Miguel Andujar drove him in with a double. Andujar was thrown out at third base just ahead of the run scoring.
