Syracuse 12 Charlotte 4
• Lannan (W, 2-2) 7IP, 4H, 1R, 1ER, BB, 6K
• Lehman 2IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 0K, 0HR

• Maldonado 3-5, 2B, RBI
• Hoffpauir 2-5, R, BB, 3RBI
Let the trade
blather chatter begin as John Lannan turned in another strong outing with just one run allowed on four hits over seven innings as the Chiefs tripled up the Knights, 12-4. Of course a five-run 1st and six-run 3rd gave him plenty o’ support, as the Chiefs broke into double digits for just the second time this season. Josh Johnson and Carlos Maldonado both went 3-for-5 as Syracuse collected 15 hits total, and made Charlotte pay for walking nine and a sieve-like seven errors on defense. Pat Lehman was roughed up for three runs on five hits over the last two frames in his AAA debut. Jim Negrych went 1-for-4 with two runs scored, two RBI, and two BB.
New Britain 1 Harrisburg 0 (12 inn.)
• Rosenbaum 7IP, 6H, 0R, 0BB, 5K
• Davis (L, 3-1) 2⅔ IP, 3H, 1R, 1ER, BB, 3K
• Pahuta 1-4, 3B, BB
• Leon 1-3
The breeze was going both ways in Harrisburg last night — 10 mph in, and 16K out — as the Senators fell 1-0 in 12 innings to the Rock Cats. Harrisburg managed just two hits: A leadoff single in the 5th by Sandy Leon and a leadoff triple by Tim Pahuta in the 7th. Neither man was advanced a base as New Britain pitchers struck out the next batter and then retired the side. Danny Rosenbaum was brilliant once again, posting his third straight start without an earned run to lower his ERA to 0.76. With no walks for the fourth time in five starts, his FIP fell to 1.80. Erik Davis took the loss in his third inninf of relief by giving up two infield singles with a stolen base in between, with the gamewinner coming across on a wild pitch.
Winston-Salem 10 Potomac 5
• Winters (L, 1-3) 4⅓ IP, 9H, 5R, 4ER, 2BB, 2K, 3HR
• McCatty 1⅔ IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K, 1-0 IR-S
• Freitas 3-4, R
• Hague 2-4, R, 2K
• Kelso 2-5, R
Make that five wins in five games for Winston-Salem, as the Dash smacked five HRs in a 10-5 win over Potomac. Kyle Winters gave up three solo shots in four and a 1/3rd innings to take the loss. Shane McCatty stopped the bleeding and got the next four outs, including two strikeouts. Michael Taylor drove in the first three P-Nat runs with two-out triple in the 6th, to lead the RBI column while David Freitas led the hit column with a 3-for-4 night. Down just 5-3, the Potomac bullpen couldn’t match McCatty’s effort, giving up five more runs to send Potomac back to fourth place in the C.L. North.
Augusta 7 Hagerstown 1
• Hill (L, 3-1) 4IP, 6H, 3R, 3ER, 2BB, 3K, WP
• Karns 3IP, 0H, 1R, 0ER, 2BB, 8K, WP
• Dykstra 1-4, R (9-game hit streak)
• Burns 1-4 (15-game on-base streak)
• Skole 1-4, RBI, 2E (5,6)
The GreenJackets took the rubber game of the three-game series with a 7-1 shellacking of the Suns. Taylor Hill posted just one scoreless inning out of four, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks. Nathan Karns struck out eight of the 11 batters he faced, but gave up an unearned run on an error and a wild pitch. Hagerstown collected just seven hits total, with Cutter Dykstra and Billy Burns extending their hit and on-base streaks to nine and 15 respectively. Matt Skole drove in the sole run to keep the Sally League lead at 31, but committed his fifth and sixth errors in 21 games at 3B. The Suns return to the Muni for seven games beginning tomorrow with three against Rome, then four against Augusta.
