Tom Gorzelanny was not sharp in his first rehab start back from injury. The big blow was a three-run home run in the third inning that gave Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a 4-0 lead. Syracuse answered with a solo home run from George Blanco in the fourth. They added two runs against Andrew Brackman, who had replaced George Kontos in the fifth. A leadoff double from Michael Aubrey, followed by a Flores HBP, a Jesus Valdez single, and a Corey Brown sac fly led to the additional runs. The Yankees extended their lead in the top of the sixth with an RBI double from Greg Golson. They put it out of reach with three more runs against relievers Lee Hyde and Ryan Tatusko in the 9th.
Harrisburg Senators — OFF DAY

Potomac Nationals — PPD
Unplayable field conditions was the announced (offline) explanation for the postponement. A doubleheader is scheduled for tonight at 6:05 p.m. to make up the game.
Lakewood 3 Hagerstown 1
• Jordan (L, 6-3) 5IP, 4H, 3ER, 2BB, 4K
• Swynenberg 2IP, H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Freitas (1B) 3-4
• Kelso 2-4, R, K
With a 3-1 loss to Lakewood, Hagerstown’s lead is down to one over Greensboro and Hickory in the race for the first-half division title in the Sally League North. The Suns were eclipsed each time a runner reached the apex of the basepaths, going 0-for-10 with RISP and stranding nine runners — seven with two out in the inning. Starter Taylor Jordan’s winless streak was extended to six starts by allowing all three Lakewood runs over five innings on four hits and two walks. Brad Kelso and David Freitas, playing first base, combined for five of the eight Suns hits (Bryce Harper did not play. The magic number to clinch remains at seven with seven games to play, the last five of which are scheduled for Municipal Stadium, where the Suns have actually played worse than on the road (15-15 vs. 22-11).
