READING, Pa. -- Francisco Lindor's two-run double in the top of the fifth inning erased a 2-1 deficit and lifted the Akron RubberDucks to a 3-2 win over the Reading Phillies on Thursday night.

Reading struck first with two runs in the third inning, then Akron answered in the fourth on a solo home run by Bryan LaHair.

The Ducks then took the lead for good the next inning when Lindor doubled to centerfield to score Jake Lowery and Tyler Naquin.

Akron starter Will Roberts (7-7) got the win on the mound, giving up two runs (both earned) on four hits, no walks and seven strikeouts in eight innings of work. Shawn Armstrong pitched the ninth for his 10th save of the season.
