A seven-run seventh spelled doom as the Durham Bulls gored the Syracuse Chiefs, 9-2. Starter Ross Detwiler took the loss, coughing up 11 hits (including two home runs) and charged with four runs. Collin Balester did not retire a batter as he hit batter, gave up back-to-back doubles and a home run before being lifted. Chris Marrero singled, doubled and took a walk to pace the Syracuse offense.

Brad Peacock rebounded from his worst outing of the season to spin his best as the Senators grounded the Flying Squirrels, 5-2. Peacock went seven inning, allowing one run on five hits and one walk. While he struck out 14, more impressive is that he needed just 106 pitches to do it, 74 of which were strikes. Hitters of the game Stephen King, Derek Norris, and Steve Lombardozzi collected five of the team’s ten hits and all five RBI, with King driving in three, Norris going deep, and Lombardozzi tripling.

A four-run second held up for Hagerstown as they edged Lakewood, 4-3. A.J. Cole went the first four innings and allowed one run on two hits and two walks. Paul Applebee got the win in relief while Ben Graham pitched the last two inning for save #5. Michael Taylor and Blake Kelso both had two hits as the Suns drove in two of the three of the runners they put into scoring position and only left four men on base. Bryce Harper extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a single in the sixth. He was subsequently picked off for his third CS of the season.
