ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Syracuse Chiefs have gone from can't-win to can't-lose, extending their winning streak to four games with a doubleheader sweep at Rochester on Thursday.
Jason Michaels hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning of the opener--his second-straight game with a long ball--and the Chiefs hung on in the bottom half to win 5-4 (doubleheaders are seven-inning games). The second game was also tight with the Chiefs winning 3-2. Mark Teahen provided the decisive hit with a two-run single in the fifth.
Syracuse (7-13) returns home Friday night to start a four-game series with Charlotte.
