ALLENTOWN – Joe Savery made his return to Lehigh Valley and made an impact. His two shoutout innings were enough to get the win as the IronPigs split a double header with Syracuse last night to open the second half of the season.
After losing the first game, 3-2, to the Chiefs, Lehigh Valley responded with a 5-2 win in the nightcap..
Savery, who was a starter last year at Lehigh Valley, came on in relief of starter Scott Mathieson, who was sent down from Philadelphia. In his first game back at Lehigh Valley he pitched two scoreless innings.
