Brandon League made his 2007 debut breaking it down for the D-Jays as the affiliates went 3-1 on the night.

Norfolk 5 at Syracuse 9

The Chiefs banged out 16 hits last night.  Wayne Lydon led the way with 4 singles from the leadoff spot.  Curtis Thigpen had two singles & a double and Russ Adams had 2 hits including a HR.

Victor Zambrano got the start for Syracuse.  He cruised through 5 scoreless innings before hitting the wall in the 6th where he gave up all 5 runs.  Houston, James and Neal pitched 3.1 scoreless innings to close out the win.

Trenton 3 at New Hampshire 4

Trenton scored 3 runs in the first 3 innings off of Kurt Isenberg before settling down and pitching into the 8th inning.  Isenberg struck out 3, walked 3 and gave up 5 hits, including a HR.  Tracey Thorpe got the final 5 outs for the win.

The Fishercats scored 3 in the 7th to tie the game up.  Diaz led off with a double and Santos walked.  Cannon sac flied Diaz to 3rd before Ryan Patterson knocked him in with a single.  Dustin Majewski singled to load the bases.  After a Mayorson pop up Ryan Klosterman drove in the next run with a walk.  Juan Peralta thought that was a good idea so he walked as well for the 3rd NH run of the inning.

With the game tied at 3 in the 9th Ryan Klosterman doubled with 2 outs.  Juan Peralta was intentionally walked and then Rob Cosby came up and hit a single to right field to complete the comeback win.

Dunedin 1 at Clearwater 3

At the plate Matt Lane led the way with 3 hits, including a double.  Yuber Rodriguez continued his hot streak with another 2 hits.  He's 21-48 in his last 10 games, including 11 extra base hits.
