No near perfect games in today's report, but there was some fine pitching, nonetheless. 2 wins, 2 losses.

Syracuse 2, Toledo 0

Another solid night for Francisco Rosario who went 6 2/3 shutout innings, for just his second win of the season. The seventh inning looked like trouble when a double off of Rosario, a single off Jesse Carlson and a walk off Spike Lundberg loaded the bases. But the reliever roulette would stop there as Spike stayed in and ended the threat with a strikeout. Aside from that inning, the Mudhens could not advance a runner past 2nd base the entire game.

John-Ford Griffin walked and Joe Depastino drove him in with a double. Depastino would score on a single from Julius Matos. Griffin finished the night with two walks and a single. Closer Jason Arnold also got some work in with a shutout ninth inning for his 5th save of the year.

Box Score

New Hampshire 1, Trenton 5

Working on a week of rest, Josh Banks struggled for the second time in as many starts. Just like last time, things started out just fine for Banks. In fact, he was perfect through three innings and had struck out the side in the second inning. Then came the fourth -- single, double, single, single, strike out, home run -- and that was end of Banks’ evening.

Maikel Jova led the offense with 3 hits and scored the only Fisher Cat run. Raul Tablado’s bat also continues to thaw out a little as he had the Cats’ only extra base hit, a double in the fourth. Bubbie Buzachero and Jamie Vermilyea were very solid in relief, combining for 4 2/3 shutout inning with 9 K’s!

Box Score

Dunedin 1, Jupiter 0

The Dunedin offense mustered all the offense Mike MacDonald would need as he hung up quite a few rings on the scoreboard. Only 1 strikeout in Mac’s 7 innings but he held the bats quiet as only 4 hits would slip through for Jupiter. Brad Mumma and Milton Tavarez were solid in relief and the Baby Jays shutout the opposition. The Jays’ only run came in the second inning when Eric Arnold and Joey Reiman hit consecutive singles with Arnold advancing to third and eventually scoring on a David Smith sac fly.

Box Score

Wisconsin 17, Lansing 8

Well, at least the offense has heated up a little the last few weeks. The only problem is that Wisconsin’s was much hotter yesterday. Kyle Yates was hammered for 9 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks and was unable to make it out of the fourth inning. It wasn’t just Yates that struggled either. Jeremy Harper was pounded for another 6 runs in only 1 and 2/3 innings. The Lugnuts tried to mount a comeback, scoring 4 in the fifth and 2 in the seventh, but couldn’t overcome the massive deficit.
