It wasn't a carnival or a bridge game in Syracuse, as the Chiefs restored order against the Indians. The farm affiliates went 4-3.

Indianopolis 3 Syracuse 16

Six Jacks in support of Zach was the story of this game. Justin Singleton hit a grand slam and a 3 run homer. Kevin Barker hit a solo job and a 2 run shot, and reached base 5 times. John-ford Griffin and Guillermo Quiroz each added a single shot, with Griffin reaching base 3 other times. The Chiefs banged out 16 hits and walked 9 times. Zach Jackson's triple A debut was a success- 5.2 innings, 7 hits, 3 walks and 6 strikeouts. Justin Miller and Spike Lundberg closed out the game admirably. The Indians were able to steal 4 bases (one a steal of home) without being caught.


Syracuse Post-Standard game story

New Hampshire 4 Norwich 5

That hurts. The Fisher Cat bullpen could not hold a 1 run lead in the ninth nor a 2 run lead in the tenth. Ismael Ramirez threw 6 nice innings, 4 hits including a solo homer, 1 walks and 6 strikeouts. Ryan Roberts hit an early solo homer, and the Cats led 2-1 going to the bottom of the ninth, as Tracy Thorpe and Jesse Carlson pitched well in brief stints. Steve Andrade surrendered a walk, stolen base and a run-scoring single in the bottom of the ninth, but emerged from a bases loaded, one out jam by striking out two. The Cats rallied for 2 runs in the top of the tenth on a bases loaded two out single by Raul Tablado. In the bottom of the tenth, Jordan DeJong came on to pitch and gave up 3 singles while retiring 1. Bubbie Buzachero surrendered a 2 run triple to the first hitter he faced and that was the ballgame.

The D-Jays flashed the leather, turning 3 double plays and killing 3 baserunners (2 by David Smith and 1 by Adam Lind).

The Lugnuts showed spunk last night. Down 1-0, the Lugs tied it up in the 5th on a Ryan Klosterman homer. In the eighth, they took the lead on a Eric Nielsen run-scoring double. In the ninth, Klosterman doubled, stole third and scored on a throwing error, and then catcher David Corrente walked, stole second and came around to score on an error. Po-Hsuan Keng threw 6 innings of 4 hit ball, walked nobody and struck out 3. Jordan Timm followed with 2 perfect innings and 4 strikeouts for the win, while Joey McLauglin pitched a nervous ninth, allowing 3 baserunners but no runs.
