Syracuse, New York (via Auburn)

Tuesday, June 21, 2005

This was kind of a messed up trip. We headed out of Binghamton and drove to Auburn to watch a Doubledays game, only to find when we got there that it was opening night for them, and the game was sold out! Not wanting to waste the drive, we headed over to Syracuse to watch their game against the Richmond Braves. Home after the game.

SkyChiefs best Braves, 5-4
June 21, 2005

Bryant Nelson broke a seventh-inning tie with an RBI single as Syracuse edged Richmond, 5-4, on Tuesday night at Alliance Bank Stadium.

Trailing 4-0 after five, the SkyChiefs scored four in the sixth to tie it. In the seventh, Nelson came up with two on and one out and lined a single to plate Justin Singleton. Brandon League (2-4) and Matt Whiteside protected the one-run lead through the eighth and ninth innings, with Whiteside picking up his 12th save.

John-Ford Griffin had a crucial two-run double in the win, while Jason Alfaro went 2-for-3 with an RBI double.. Joe DePastino also went 2-for-3, while Kevin Barker singled in a run.

J.J. Jurries, Bill McCarthy and Jason Bourgeois all had two hits apiece for the Braves. Jurries hit his 11th homer, a solo shot in the fourth, while Bourgeois went deep for the second time this year. Carlos Mendez had a two-run single in a losing effort for Richmond.

In his first game with Richmond, starter Roman Colon threw two scoreless innings in his bid to return to the Atlanta Braves bullpen. Chad Paronto (3-2) suffered the loss in relief after giving up two runs on four hits in 2/3 of an inning.

Syracuse's Josue Matos limited the Braves to just one run on four hits in four innings, striking out three. The win was the SkyChiefs' 10th in their last 11 games. -- Nate Freiberg/
