AL Scoreboard: The Atlantic City Surf defeated the Somerset Patriots, 4-3, in the last game of the first half. Ryan Radmanovich hit his 13th home run of the season in the loss. Mel Rosario hit his first home run of the year, which is surprising since he told me before our interview yesterday that he was nursing a groin injury and was looking forward to resting for the remainder of the first half. Rosario was also used in pinch-hitting duties last night in a weird spot, replacing the speedy Demetrius Heath with runners on the corners and one out.

The Bridgeport Bluefish beat the Camden Riversharks, 4-2. Camden used seven pitchers in the loss, with Ben Simon even seeing some relief action. No pitcher went any longer than three innings for the Riversharks.

The Newark Bears beat the Lancaster Barnstormers, 9-6. Keith Maxwell went yard with a three yard shot that marked his 9th of the year. Teuris Olivares and even Tom McGee joined in the home run derby for Newark. John Nathans had three hits for Lancaster in the loss…he’s proven to have been a very productive signing for them.

Long Island beat Nashua, 4-0, in game one of their doubleheader. Pete Rose, Jr. (5) hit a home run in the win for the Ducks, his first at Citibank Park. They took game two as well, by winning 8-4 in the night portion of the doubleheader. Lance Davis struck out five in seven innings of work. Jimmy Hurst homered in the loss for Nashua.

Alumni Update: I caught up with former Surf coach Greg Luzinski yesterday afternoon at the Phillies game. Luzinski is the “host” of a barbeque restaurant in the outfield of Citizens Bank Park for all Phillies home games, similar to what Boog Powell does for the Orioles and what Manny Sanguillen does for the Pirates. Anyway, for as much as I’d love to have something great for you, I really don’t. He absolutely couldn’t have been any less interested in talking about the league, and mentioned that he really doesn’t follow it anymore. Which is fine, because his sandwich wasn’t really that good anyway. I’ll go over to Famous Dave’s on 206, I highly recommend that place…best BBQ ever. – Mike Ashmore
