WP: Maya (2-4)
LP: Wright (2-4)
S: Broadway (2)
HR: PAW-Henry (2), Brentz (12); SYR-Walters (12), Costanzo (9)
HIGHLIGHTS: A 2-hour and 22-minute rain delay forced the teams to concede their doubleheader and try to get in one nine inning bout. The PawSox (37-27) scored a run in each of the eighth and ninth innings, but fell just short. Steven Wright went seven innings giving up four runs and seven hits for his fourth loss. He is 0-3 over his last six starts of which he has allowed eight home runs and 42 runs. Justin Henry (1-for-4, HR, RBI, run) connected on his second home run of the season, besting the total number he hit over the last two seasons combined. Jackie Bradley Jr. and Bryce Brentz both went 2-for-4 with Bradley picking up his ninth double of the season and Brentz going yard for the second time in as many games.
HIGHLIGHTS: There has been no makeup date set as of yet for this wash out, but the PawSox do return to Syracuse in early August.
