The Whitecaps jumped out to an early lead against the Kernels but couldn't hold on to it, falling 6-5. Walks plagued the 'Caps pitchers, as they allowed seven on the evening. Sendy Vasquez got the start and lasted only four innings, allowing three runs, two earned, on six hits and three walks. Josh Kauten took the loss in relief, allowing two runs in two innings of work, walking three more Kernels. Loren Fraser was the lone bright spot for the pitching staff, as he allowed only one run in three innings of work, striking out five and walking one. Mike Holliman went 2-for-3 the evening after hitting for the cycle, and Justin Justice drove in two. Pedro Cotto was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI, and Will Rhymes was 1-for-4 with a triple and an RBI. The 'Caps have the day off the 11th, and will open a series against Southwest Michigan on the 12th.

SS-A Oneonta Tigers - JAMESTOWN 6, ONEONTA 1
13-7, 1st in Stedler division

The O-Tigers came up short on Monday, losing to Jamestown 6-1. Tom Thornton got the start, but only made it two innings, giving up no runs. Tim Robertson took the loss in relief, as he was shelled for all six Jamestown runs in third inning, recording just two outs before he was pulled from the game. Jose Fragoso and Chris Krawczyk held Jamestown from that point forward, but the offense couldn't overcome the six run deficit. Scott Sizemore drove in the team's only run, while Brennan Boesch had the team's only extra base hit. Oneonta returns home on Tuesday to begin a three game series with Staten Island at 7:00pm.
