Erie Seawolves (5-3) 5, Binghamton Rumble Ponies (4-4) 2  Box Score

The Binghamton offense had little offense tonight, scoring their two on a Kevin Kaczmarski groundout in the first and a Thompson infield single in the 3rd.

Oswalt got the start for the Rumble Ponies and had a rough first inning for the second straight start, allowing 3 runs. He has now allowed 7 first inning runs (5 earned) in his first two starts of the season. He managed to settle in after that, allowing only 1 run over the next 5 innings. Both Secrest and Reyes have been solid in relief so far this season.

St. Lucie Mets (4-5) 7,  Florida Fire Frogs (4-5) 3 Box Score

Mazeika, Becerra, and J.C. Rodriguez all continued their hot starts to the season. Mazeika is hitting .375/.483/.583 with eight RBI in seven games.

Dunn pitched a bit better in his second start of the year, but still allowed 10 men on base in only 5.1 innings. Brantley was excellent in his 2.2 hitless innings and earned the win. He has yet to allow a run in 7.2 innings this season. Palsha had a 1-2-3 ninth to get the save.

Augusta GreenJackets (2-7) 7, Columbia Fireflies (6-3) 0  Box Score

The Columbia offense failed to get anything going on offense. They only had 4 hits in the game, all of which were singles.

Llanes had a rough start, giving up 3 runs in both the 4th and 6th innings before being taken out of the game. Zanghi gave up his first run of the season while pitching the 9th inning.
