Pawtucket 2 Syracuse 0
• Cole (L, 5-4) 6IP, 7H, 2R, 2ER, 2BB, 3K, WP
• Skole 1-2, BB
A.J. Cole turned in a complete game as the Chiefs were shut out, 2-0 in the opener. Cole walked two and struck out three while allowing seven hits over six innings during his fourth loss. Of course, it’s hard to win when you only get one hit (Matt Skole) and draw just three walks (Skole, Brian Goodwin, Trea Turner).
Syracuse 3 Pawtucket 2
• Laffey 3⅓ IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, BB, 4K, WP

• Campana 1-3, 2RBI
Syracuse rebounded in Game Two to edge Pawtucket, 3-2. Aaron Laffey pitched into the 4th and left with a 3-0 lead with one out and two on. Erik Davis let in both runners on a two-run single after walking the first batter he faced but got the next five outs to earn the win. Koda Glover retired the side in order in the 6th for a hold in his AAA debut. Rafael Martin nearly undid all the work before him as he Cordero’d his way through the 7th with a single, double, and an intentional walk before rolling a double play to end it. Jhonatan Solano drove in the first Chiefs run with a single and walked while Tony Campana plated two with a two-run single in the 4th as Syracuse collected five hits total.

Christopher Bostick tripled and homered and scored twice to lead the Harrisburg offense, which collected nine hits and three walks total.

Andrew Stevenson tripled twice, scored twice, and drove in two to help lead the Carolina League past the California League, 6-4, and earned him MVP honors. Both Stvenson and Drew Ward played the entire game, which also saw Ryan Brinley wobble through a scoreless 8th while giving up three hits.

Both he and Victor Robles started and put in three ABs before giving way to the reserves. Jefry Rodriguez pitched a scoreless inning while Mariano Rivera III retired both batters he faced in the parade of pitchers to appear.
