Cory Patton had ten RBI's as Dunedin ran up the score on Fort Myers.  David Purcey pitched well in a Fisher Cat win, Davis Romero did not as the Chiefs lost.  Anthony Hatch and Brian Bormaster led the Lugnuts to victory and Casey McKenzie pitched Auburn to a win.  A Jays starting pitcher notched up twelve K's, and it is not a flame thrower.  A Pulaski rainout leaves the affiliates with a 4-1 record on the day.

I never realized how much these reports rely on boxscores until I noticed who apparently started for Syracuse yesterday. Then I saw who finished the game for New Hampshire. Needless to say, they were names I didn't expect to see.
