The Syracuse win streak continues and now stands at nine games.  When things are going well you find ways to win.  On Saturday the Chiefs scored in the bottom of the ninth when John-Ford Griffin beat out an infield single.  Sunday the Chiefs tied the game in the bottom of the ninth and won it in the tenth on a triple by Griffin.  Dunedin scored twenty runs and led 15-0 in the fourth inning, Lansing also won but the Fisher Cats lost ugly, twice, as Jesse Litsch returned to AA.
