Scranton, Trenton take game 1.

In their respective playoff series.

In Scranton, consensus #1 pitching prospect David Price gives up 4ER in 6IP with 9K, and the Scranton Yankees beat the Durham Bulls 8-7. The big blow is a 2 run First inning HR off the bat of former big leaguer Ben Broussard.

Chase Wright was better than Price (2ER over 6IP), but his bullpen let him down. Melancon pitches a scoreless ninth, and the baby Yanks grab their second consecutive walk off victory of these playoffs.

The Trenton Thunder grab their own 1-0 lead versus the Akron Aeros with a crisp 3-1 victory. Eric Hacker goes 6IP and allows the only run. SS Ramiro Pena is the hitting star going 3 for 5 with an RBI and a run scored.
