It was a battle of attrition between the Indianapolis and Syracuse bullpens in a 6-4 win by the visitors. Starter Scott McGregor took the loss with three runs allowed on six hits and two walks over six and a 1/3rd innings. Four relievers followed and none of them could prevent the Indians from scoring over the final two and 2/3rds innings. Emmanuel Burriss singled, walked, homered, and scored two runs while Ian Stewart walked twice and doubled once to pace the Chiefs offense.
Roster moves: OF Tony Gwynn Jr. activated from TIL; UT Jose Lozada placed on 7-Day DL.

Mario Lisson’s RBI single in the 3rd plated Derrick Robinson, who led the Senators hit column with a 2-for-4 night.
