Lots new, actually. New Hampshire and Lansing won, while Syracuse played 14 innings to no avail. Suspended games are so unsatisfying.

Syracuse 5 Charlotte 5 suspended,rain

The Chiefs and Knights went 14 innings toe-to-toe, but no victor was declared in their duel. Dave Bush started and went 6 innings, allowing 3 earned runs on 6 hits, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Brandon League moved to the pen, and allowed the tying run in the 7th inning. Spike Lundberg, Adrian Burnside, Matt Duff, Matt Whiteside (who surrendered a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the 12th), and Jason Arnold all took the horsehide for brief periods. Kevin Barker hit a 3 run homer early, along with a RBI single to put the Chiefs ahead in the top of the 12th. John-ford Griffin hit a solo homer.

The Chiefs and Knights complete the suspended game at 1:15 p.m. Afterwards, Shaun Marcum and Brandon McCarthy face off in a primo pitching matchup in the regularly scheduled game.

In the FSL All-Star Game last night, Robinzon Diaz had a run-scoring single in the West's 6-4 triumph over the East.

Auburn and Pulaski play their first games on Tuesday.
Any word on rosters yet?

One all star note from Lansing. Jason Armstrong will replace Juan Peralta on the all star team since he is currently on the DL.

Today (Sunday) is the first day of camp for new draftees to decide where they'll go for Tuesday's games.

Yeah, Ken Joyce gave Thigpen a couple of days off because he is going to be in the All Star game on Tuesday. The guys that aren't going to be active over the next three days are the guys that he wanted in the lineup. There isn't anything to read into it.
