Four Chiefs pitchers combined on a shutout of the Indians in the first game of the doubleheader. No hits were allowed – is there a name for that? Austin Voth went the first three and struck out four, David Goforth hit a batter but threw two, while Tim Collins and Austin Adams both tossed a scoreless inning and struck out two. Tuffy Gosewich led the Syracuse hit parade with three singles and an RBI, followed by Jose “Orange” Marmolejos with two singles and a walk.

Jimmy Cordero and Trevor Gott both put up a goose egg to finish out the game. Alejandro De Aza singled three times, scored once, and drove in a run while Irving Falu and Rafael Bautista both went 2-for-4 to pace the Chiefs offense.
