Three wins and three losses, plus a hurricane-out.  Dunedin clinch a second half division title with a doubleheader split.  New Hampshire had a big come from behind win as JP Arencibia tied the game in the ninth with a home run and Ryan Patterson won it in the tenth with a triple.  Lansing also came from behind but earlier than the Fisher Cats.  Syracuse and Auburn lost.

The GCL Jays registered the only win of the day.  Your intrepid correspondent was on hand in Binghamton, New York, to see JP Arencibia walk twice.  There was a charge to the early showers in the Syracuse game, the umpire must have developed a sore thumb from the ejections.

Good pitching beats good hitting and that was a good thing for the affiliates.  The hurlers had only seven runs to work with in a 2-and-1 night on the farm.  Meantime, a member of the Auburn Doubledays came away with some hardware during the NY Penn League All-Star festivities.

It was an even night on the farm, as victories in Dunedin, Lansing and the Gulf Coast League offset losses in the high minors and NY-Penn League. The Lugnuts had a good night at the plate in Fort Wayne and Syracuse managed a good number of hits, even if they came up short in the end. There was a lot of 5 inning starts amongst the starters with few standout performances.

The Jays number one hitting prospect connected for his first home run in AAA but their top pitching prospect didn't fare nearly as well in fantastic Frontier Field.  New Hampshire split a doubleheader, the GCL Jays got swept in theirs, Dunedin won and everyone else lost in an ugly 2-and-6 night for the affiliates.
