Empire State lost to Norfolk 4-3 in the first game of the (scheduled) doubleheader:

Corban Jospeh finally got his call up from Double-A Trenton, and he did not waste time making his mark at Triple-A. With one out in the top of the first inning, Jospeh took an 0-1 pitch from Jason Berken over the wall for a home run in his first at bat in the highest level of the minors to get the Yankees on the board first. The game went into the bottom of the seventh (the final inning of the game due to the doubleheader being scheduled), but Manny Delcarmen did not have his best outing on this night. Delcarmen struck out the first batter of the inning, but walked Carlos Rojas, who then moved to third on a single by Xavier Avery. With the winning run on third, Lew Ford promptly brought him home with a walk off single to give the Tides the win.

Notables:

2B Corban Joseph: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 HR
LF Ronier Mustelier: 2-3, 1 RBI
SS Ramiro Pena: 2-3, 1 RBI
RF Colin Curtis: 2-3

Trenton was tied with New Hampshire 2-2 after 7 1/2 innings:

Runs were difficult to come by in this one, even if base runners were not, at least for the Thunder. Trenton collected a total of 10 hits and three walks through the seven innings in which they hit, but only managed to plate the two runs on an RBI double and an RBI single in the sixth inning. The Thunder almost came away with a rain shortened win, but New Hampshire managed to tie the game in the top of the eighth with a two run, no out triple. Preston Claiborne came in at that point and managed to retire the side without allowing the run to come home before the weather forced the suspension of play.

Notables:

2B David Adams: 2-3, 1 BB
3B Kevin Mahoney: 3-4
LF Jose Pirela: 2-4, 1 RBI
SP Vidal Nuno: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K

Charleston got routed by Greenville 13-3:

A rough night for starter Bryan Mitchell, who lasted just one inning on this night but still managed to give up five runs to put his team in an early hole. Greenville tacked on one more in the second before Charleston was able to cut the lead in half thanks to three runs in the fourth inning, but after that it would be all Greenville, who were all over just about every pitcher the Riverdogs sent out there tonight. Ouch.

Notables:

RHSP Bryan Mitchell: 1 IP, 5 R, 3 H, 4 BB, 1 K
DH Gary Sanchez: 2-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI
LHRP Fred Lewis: 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 BB, 5 K
1B Reymond Nunez: 1-3, 1 BB, 2 RBI
