Chiefs win 4th game in 5 days in rain-shortened game with Norfolk

The Syracuse Chiefs won their fourth game in five days on Friday night, defeating Norfolk in a rain-shortened 7-inning game 7-3. The Chiefs came out swinging in the bottom of the first inning, scoring three runs. Leftfielder Chris Rahl started the Chiefs off with a single to centerfield. Second basemen Jeff Kobernus was next up, and laid down a sacrifice bunt advancing Rahl to scoring position. Will Rhymes then singled scoring Rahl giving the Chiefs the 1-0 lead. With only one out in the inning, heavy hitter Chris Marrero drove one deep to left field, a two-run home run putting the Chiefs up 3-0. He now has 7 homeruns this season.
