In Reading, Brody Colvin won his first game for the R-Phils with 6 1-hit innings against Binghamton. Colvin allowed 2 runs, walking 4 and hitting a batter, but really got in a good groove retiring 12 of the last 13 hitters he faced. D'Arby Myers had another 2-hit game, and is hitting .291 since his call up from Clearwater, and Darin Ruf homered for the 3rd straight day, his 22nd of the season.
In Pawtucket, Jake Diekman walked 3 hitters in the bottom of the 10th inning, which led to a 6-5 win for the Red Sox. Philippe Aumont had given up 2 runs in the 9th to blow the save. Mike Spidale (.278) had 2 hits and an RBI for the IronPigs.
In Lakeland, Bob Stumpo's 3-run double in the 4th inning looked like it would be enough for a win, but the Flying Tigers rallied for 3 unearned runs in the 8th inning off Mike Nesseth, and then Colton Murray allowed the game winner in the 10th, as Lakeland stole a 4-3 win from the Threshers. It was the first run that Murray has allowed in 13.2 inning since being moved up from Lakewood.
Depite home runs from Maikel Franco and Kelly Dugan, and 2 hits from Brian Pointer, the BlueClaws dropped another one in West Virginia, 8-4, and are falling out of the playoff picture more each day.
