Same s!@#, different level for Joe Ross, who was hammered like a Kennedy at an open bar in Syracuse’s 9-3 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Ross gave up seven runs on eight hits, including two two-run homers that bookended his five-inning outing. He walked two and struck out four. Brian Goodwin and Brandon homered to account for all three Chiefs runs on an eight-hit, three-walk offensive output. Roster move: RHP Cody Satterwhite assigned from Washington.

Phillips Valdez ran aground for three runs on three hits and a walk in the 8th for the blown-save-loss.

Luis Reyes was strafed for eight runs on eight hits and two walks over three an a 1/3rd innings to lose for the fifth time in six starts.
