AL Scoreboard: Nashua beat Atlantic City, 8-7. Orlando Miller had 3 RBI against his old team, with both Ozzie Timmons (12) and Dario Delgado (17) going yard in the loss.

Newark beat Camden, 11-2. Norm Hutchins, quite the unlikely source of power, hit a grand slam to power the Bears to victory. Pat Daneker again pitched out of his mind, coming within one out of a complete game shutout. Riversharks infielder Troy Cameron pitched the 9th inning of the blowout loss, allowing two hits.

Lancaster beat Somerset, 9-4. Lance Burkhart walked four times in the win. The victory moved Lancaster into a first place tie in their division. Will. Not. Last.

Long Island beat Bridgeport, 6-5. Justin Davies suicide squeeze turned out to be the difference in this one. Gary Burnham (9) homered in the loss, with Todd Erdos picking up save number 21. Luis Arroyo fell to 1-7 in the loss, and he appears to be part of the problem as opposed to part of the solution. He’s got a 5.40 ERA and opponents are hitting .282 off of him. However, he’s an arm, and Bridgeport can’t afford to lose him right now. – Mike Ashmore

Ducks Celebrity Game: The Long Island Ducks are holding a celebrity game at their ballpark on August 27. The headliner is Billy Baldwin; however, not expected to show: Patrick Duffy (Step by Step), Darius McCrary (Family Matters) or Mark Linn-Baker (Perfect Strangers).

Cornett Returns: The Bridgeport Bluefish are bringing in a familiar face, signing pitcher Brad Cornett to a contract.

Cornett’s career began when he was signed as a non-drafted free agent by the Toronto Blue Jays, on June 15, 1992. In 1993 Brad ranked second in the New York Penn League in ERA (2.40), third in the league for strikeouts (161), fourth in innings pitched (172.1), and fifth in shutouts (1). Brad made his Major League debut making 14 appearances (four starts) with the Blue Jays in parts of two seasons (1994-95).

Signed with the Bluefish in May of 2001, but after pitching in only two games was called up to Triple-A Durham (Devil Rays) posting a 4-2 record and 2.05 ERA. In 2002, returned to the Bluefish to post a record of 14-7 with an ERA of 3.27 in 25 games played, striking out 109 batters (fourth in the league) while being second in the league in innings pitched (167.2), wins (14), and starts (25), while also becoming the second pitcher in league history to win 10 games by the All-Star break, going 10-2. Brad’s 14 wins in 2002 tied a team record

Cornett is a three time All-Star with the Bluefish, being selected in 2002, 2003, and 2004. Posted an 8-4 record in 22 starts for the Bluefish in 2003 and ranked fourth in the Atlantic League in shutouts (1), and seventh in ERA (3.03). Brad pitched two complete games (June 1 at Atlantic City and August 27 against Long Island) while striking out 96 batters, including a Bluefish record 12 strikeouts on August 10 against Camden in front of a home crowd. With Bridgeport in 2004, he went 8-4 while compiling a 3.81 ERA in 21 appearances while striking out 84 and walking only 27. (BF Press Release) – Scott Stanchak.
