Wilken Ramirez, Casper Wells, and Ryan Strieby all homered to beat Buffalo in a game played over the course of two days because of weather. Andy Oliver got the start and pitched four scoreless innings in which he allowed two hits and struck out four batters. The 12-6 final was even more of a blowout until Fu Te-Ni gave up four runs in the ninth inning. Five runs over the first three innings were enough for a 5-4 win over Buffalo in the regularly scheduled game on July 24. Jeff Frazier‘s two run home runs was the game’s big blast. Alfredo Figaro helped the team to a third straight win over the Bison with seven shutout innings of two-hit baseball.

Erie SeaWolves (42-61)

July 25 @ Binghamton, W 4-1 (WP: A. Shawler; LP: M. Antonini; SV: L. Oliveros)

Thad Weber‘s didn’t need any help from the bullpen to pitch the SeaWolves to a 2-1 victory over Binghamton. The Erie pitching wasn’t as strong a day later when it took a combined effort from Duane Below and Cory Hamilton to escape an eight run first inning. Home runs from Rawley Bishop and Andy Bouchie combined with seven strong innings from Anthony Shawler were enough to avoid back-to-back loses.
