Yunesky Maya flirted with perfection for 20 batters before giving up… wait for it… a home run as Syracuse edged Rochester, 2-1 and took the series, 3-1. Maya went eight innings total and walked none and struck out one to even his record at 8-8. Christian Garcia pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his fifth save. Eury Perez singled, doubled, and stole a base to push his average to .433 and extend his hit streak to seven games.

Estarlin Martinez extended his hit streak to 10 games with a single, double, and a triple and drove in three of the four Doubleday runs.

  1. Taylor and Hood have both woken up since Goodwins promotion & thus far he’s handling himself well in AA.

    • Couldn’t agree more. Luke is better at explaining this than me, but was concerned that the ‘Rhinehart Effect’ could apply to Goodwin.
      He’s adapting quite well at the plate, although SensFan says his fielding needs work. You figure he’s going to be at Harrisburg at least through a good part of 2013. It’ll be fun to watch.

    • Marcus had me want to check on Hood, who had been scuffling at the plate most of the year. His last 10 games he’s hitting .833 OPS.

  2. Is Rosenbaum’s line correct in the Harrisburg game? If so, any word on why he only pitched 1 inning?

    • Yes, it’s correct — my fault for not running that line the day before the way I usually do for suspended games. Rosenbaum pitched on Thursday night before the game got suspended.
