Yesterday's results

Triple-A International League

Syracuse 3, Rochester 0: Pat Lennon drove in two runs and Billy Koch combined with two relievers on a six-hitter as the SkyChiefs beat the host Red Wings.

Syracuse scored two unearned runs in the sixth inning to break up the duel between Koch and Rochester starter Terry Burrows (0-1), who allowed only two hits over six innings.

Lennon broke up Burrows' no-hit bid with a single in the fourth. He had a sacrifice fly in the sixth and homered in the ninth.

Jerry Hairston Jr. had three of the Red Wings' six hits, including a double.

Double-A Eastern League

Akron 7, Bowie 3: Scott Morgan hit a two-run homer and Junior Betances had three hits and two RBIs, as the Aeros defeated the Baysox at Prince George's Stadium.

Morgan connected in the first inning off Brian Falkenborg (0-1) after John McDonald reached on a one-out error by third baseman Carlos Casimiro.

Akron (1-1) extended its lead on another unearned run in the fourth inning and led 5-0 in the fifth.

Danny Peoples added a two-run double in the sixth to close the Akron scoring.

The Baysox, stymied by left-hander Mike Bacsik (1-0) for five innings, scored on Richard Paz's sacrifice fly in the sixth.

The Baysox (1-1) threatened to close the gap in the eighth, scoring twice on four walks and an infield hit by Joe Ronca. But Rick Short flied to right with the bases loaded, and the Baysox missed the chance to score additional runs when Casimiro was doubled off first base for the final out.

Single-A Carolina League

Myrtle Beach 8, Frederick 0: Jason Ross went 2-for-4 with four RBIs, and three pitchers combined to throw a four-hit shutout as the Pelicans defeated the Keys at Harry Grove Stadium.

It was Myrtle Beach's first game in the Carolina League after the franchise spent last year in Danville, Va.

Myrtle Beach took the lead in the fourth, scoring four runs on five hits to knock out Frederick starter Matt Riley (1-0). Riley, picked as the top prospect in the Orioles' organization by Baseball America, allowed four runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings.
