4 wins, 2 losses. Josh Banks was stellar again, while Davis Romero was not.

Ottawa 2, Syracuse 4

The Skychiefs took an early 3-0 lead thanks to a 2 run shot from John-Ford Griffin in the 3rd. The pitching staff, in a team effort held down the fort from there. Starter Spike Lundberg lasted 5 innings allowing only 1 run. Jamie Vermilyea allowed the other Ottawa run on a mistake to "slugger" Mike Moriarty. However, Adrian Burnside, Lee Gronkiewicz and Matt Whiteside held them scoreless. Whiteside got the save, and Lundberg took the win. Gabe Gross had a pair of walks while Kevin Barker had two hits, including a double.

Box score

New Hampshire 4, Norwich 1

Josh Banks is on a roll. He's finally keeping the ball in the park. He still hasn't given up a walk since June and he spun another gem last night. 8.0 innings, 5 hits, 1 run, 7 K's. The Cats took the early lead off a single-homer combo from Miguel Negron and Ryan Roberts to start things off in the first inning. Negron also led off the third inning with a single and the Cat's once again plated two runs. Banks took things from there and Ryan Houston nailed it shut in ninth for his 4th save.

Box score

Lakeland 11, Dunedin 9

Davis Romero has run hot and cold this year and last night he was cold, giving up 5 runs in 4 innings. Maybe it just wasn't the pitchers' night as a total of 20 runs were scored off of 12 different pitchers. 6 hitters reached base twice but Joey Reiman had the biggest swing of the night with a 3 run homer.

Box score

Dayton 4, Lansing 0

The Lugnuts managed only 4 hits last night and 3 of them came off the bat of Christian Snavely. Danny Core got the start and gave up 3 runs in 5 innings. Aaron Tressler went the final 4 innings allowing a single run.

Box score

Batavia 1, Auburn 3

Orlando Trias had an excellent start going 6 inning allowing only 1 run. Joey Metropoulos was the offensive hero, scoring the go ahead run in the second with a leadoff walk and once again in the fourth with a solo home run. Billy Carnline and Paul Philips were perfect over the final 3 innings.

Box score

Greenville 3, Pulaski 12

Jacob Butler was a triple short of the cycle while scoring 3 and driving in 3. Paul Franko also doubled and homered, driving in 4. Shane Benson lasted 5 innings, allowing 2 runs with 5 K's and no walks. Peter Eberhardt and Connor Falkenbach each threw a scoreless inning in relief.
