• Frazier 3-4, R, 2B, HR, 3RBI
• Bynum 2-4, 2R, HR, RBI
A six-run 2nd inning gave Yunesky Maya the cushion and confidence to win his second straight start as Syracuse beat Pawtucket, 7-4. Maya gave up two runs on five hits over six innings with no walks and five strikeouts. Jeff Frazier and Seth Bynum both homered, combining for five of the 10 Chiefs hits. The win improves Syracuse to 58-67, but the elimination number is down to one in the I.L. North.

Erie completed its sweep of Harrisburg with a rain-shortened 5-1 win. The Senators were held to just five hits, with Archie Gilbert leading the offense with a 2-for-4 afternoon. The loss coupled with a Bowie win cuts the Sens lead to just a ½ game, with Richmond close behind at 1½ games back in the E.L. West.

Potomac pitchers threw two scoreless innings against Winston-Salem, but the Dash got 15 runs in the other seven, pounding out 23 hits against five pitchers in a 15-3 smackdown. The loss drops second-place Potomac to 4½ games behind Frederick, but they still have a 5½ game lead over third-place Lynchburg in the C.L. North.

Adrian Sanchez and Kevin Keyes accounted for five of the Suns’ six hits while Chris McKenzie took the loss with both runs allowed on five hits over three and 2/3rds innings of relief. The loss drops Hagerstown to third place, three games behind Kannapolis in the Sally North.
