Syracuse 5 Buffalo 4

But in the fourth, after recording the first out, he walked a hitter then gave up three straight hits leading to two runs. Shawn Hill came on in relief and made things worse by letting three more score. An error by Ryan Goins didn't help. Raul Valdes pitched three perfect innings.

With the bases loaded on a single, a walk and an error, Darin Mastroianni doubled in two, the third scored on a wild pitch. Buffalo loaded the bases again with no one out in the ninth trailing 5-3. But they could only bring home one run and left the tying run at third. Buffalo outhit the Chiefs 6-4, Mastroianni was the only hitter with two hits.
