Ty Taubenheim, David Purcey and Ryan Houston each were hit hard on Sunday.  Kyle Ginley pitched well but only for four innings.  Lansing were the sole victors Sunday even though they only had three hits in the game, Matt Lane had the key hit to drive in two runs, and that's all they needed.

It's the abbreviated holiday edition today.

Durham 10  Syracuse 3

Not a good day for the pitchers, Ty Taubenheim gave up five earned runs in 6.1 innings on six hits and two walks.  Ryan Houston gave up four runs in a third of an inning and Mike Venafro gave up the tenth run.  The Chiefs had seven hits, Russ Adams had two.

Binghamton 7  New Hampshire 5

David Purcey lasted 3.2 innings, allowed five earned runs, six hits and three walks.  Tracey Thorpe gave up a solo home run in 2.1 innings, Jean Machi gave up a run in 3 innings.  Aaron Mathews was 4-5 to run his average to .331.  But he would like his one out back, he came to the plate in the first inning with the bases loaded and one out, and promptly hit into a double play.  Manny Mayorson was 3-5 with two doubles, two runs and two RBI's.

Brevard County 4  Dunedin 3

Josh Kreuzer hit two home runs in a losing cause and scored all three of Dunedin's runs.  Eric Nielsen and Kyle Phillips each had three hits.  Aaron Tressler pitched five innings and gave up three runs on six hits.  The fourth Brevard run was unearned off Ted Serro.  Daryl Harang kept his 0.00 ERA having piched 12.2 innings this season. 

Lansing 2  Wisconsin 1 

Lansing had three hits in this game, two of them in the sixth inning when they scored their two runs.  With one out Travis Snider reached on an error, Brian Pettway singled, Sean Shoffit struck out, Chris Emanuele walked to load the bases and Matthew Lane singled to drive in both runs.  Kyle Ginley started and pitched four innings, three hits, three walks, seven K's, one run.  Adrian Martin got the win with two shutout innings, Seth Overbey the two inning save.  Overbey now had 24.2 scoreless innings to start 2007.
