Billy Carnline gave up a lead off single and decided enough was enough. The affiliates went 2-1 on the night.

Buffalo 2 @ Syracuse 4

A 4 spot in the 7th was the difference for the Chiefs. Santos led off with a double, advanced to third on a groundout and scored on a Roberts single. Following a Barker walk Mottola double to drive in two. John Hattig drove in Barker with a single. Mottola and Hattig each had 3 hits and Sergio Santos had 2 hits.

David Purcey got the start for Syracuse. He gave up one run on three walks and a double, striking out 5. He left after 4 innings and 89 pitches. Weber, Houston, Tallet and Gronkiewicz finished off the game allowing only one unearned run. Game Over struck out the side in the 9th for the save.

New Hampshire 1 @ Harrisburg 4

Davis Romero had a mixed night. He gave up 4 runs in 6 innings, but gave up 6 hits and a walk to go with 7 Ks. His K/BB ratio for the year is 22/3 in AA.

The Fisher Cats had just 2 hits on the night.

Cedar Rapids 0 @ Lansing 4

Billy Carnline gave up a leadoff single and then retired the next 18 batters. Last year's 12th round pick now sports a 0.41 ERA and a 25:1 K/BB ratio to start the year and is likely looking at a promotion to Dunedin shortly.

Cory Patton led the Nuts at the plate going 4-4 with three doubles and three RBIs. Brian Pettway chipped in with a solo home run, his 4th on the year.

Three Stars!
3rd star - John Hattig
