SKYCHIEFS FALL IN SPRING OPENER

March 15, 2005

The Syracuse SkyChiefs were defeated by the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons, 7-5, in their first Spring Training contest Tuesday at the Phillies Complex in Clearwater, Florida.

While the rest of the Phillies enjoyed an off-day, Jon Lieber got the start for the Red Barons and allowed just one run on six hits in five innings. Lieber struck out four SkyChiefs and did not allow a walk.

Vito Chiaravalloti and John Hattig each collected two hits, including a double, for the SkyChiefs. Syracuse starter Seung Song allowed seven hits and five earned runs and did not make it out of the second inning.

Syracuse will play Toronto’s Double-Affiliate New Hampshire Wednesday at 11:00 AM at the Blue Jays Englebert Complex and then will travel to Clearwater to face the Red Barons again on Thursday.
