AAA - Buffalo Bisons (48-68)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 2, SYRACUSE 3 / 11 INNINGS (Box) Satin, Lutz, and Martinez singled in the first, Raul Chavez and Jesus Feliciano singled in the second, and the Bisons had a 2-0 lead for lefty crafster Mark Cohoon. It didn't last, as the game shifted back to a tie, and then a tie, and then a tie, for nearly eight static innings in which the better part of the game's 23 strikeouts were recorded. From the fourth inning through the ninth Buffalo managed just two baserunners, neither of whom left first, much less scored. With the game in extras Feliciano scorched a lead-off triple only to stand wanly on that bag as his teammates struck out, popped up, and popped up. In the eleventh, Michael O'Conner stepped in for the second straight night and for the second straight night pitched his team into a ditch. The winning run came home on a sharp liner in Fernando's direction, and the Herd walked bentheaded toward the dugout.

AA - Binghamton Mets (48-69)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 6, TRENTON 5 (Box) 2B Reese Havens turned on the steam with two outs in the first, knocking a double and, two walks later, taking part in a 3-run base-clearing charge as 3B Michael Fisher's double rattled against the wall. For five cheerful innings SP Collin McHugh tossed shutdown 3-hit 5-K ball, and Tobi Stoner added his own mellow brand of pitching success, carrying a 6-1 lead into the eighth -- the lead extended by a Raul Reyes home run and a second Havens & Fisher collaboration. In the eighth, though, Stoner allowed two baserunners and was smoked by a three-run shot. Coming back to pitch the ninth -- now in a 6-4 save situation -- Tobi was smacked for a lead-off triple, and replaced by a less-than-sure Josh Stinson, who walked his first batter and let the man at third score on a wild pitch, cutting the lead to one. A pick off, a flier, and a ground ball later, the visiting squad could finally sigh "whew."
