The Scr anton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders completed the biggest comeback in franchise history on Tuesday night, rallying from a 9-0 deficit on the road to beat the St. Paul Saints 10-9 on Tuesday night at CHS Field. It was the first-ever meeting between the two teams.

Shortstop Oswald Peraza, a highly touted Yankees’ prospect whose name was floated in trade rumors before the MLB trade deadline, belted the game-winning two-run homer off lefty Jovani Moran in the eighth inning to complete the huge comeback. It was the 17th homer of the season for Peraza, who went on a home run tear in May.

According to the team’s website, the comeback effort surpassed the franchise record of eight runs, set on Aug. 23, 2000, as the then-Red Barons overcame an 8-0 first inning deficit to beat Buffalo 10-9.
