7/5 Cup of Coffee: Weather on July 4th played havoc with the schedule as Pawtucket, Portland and Lowell all saw their games postponed.

Mark Wagner went 3 for 4 with 2 home runs, 3 runs scored and 5 RBI. Mickey Hall went 2 for 4 with a home run and 3 RBI. Ryan Khoury went 3 for 5 with a run scored and a RBI.

Greensboro edged Greenville 6-5. Daniel Bard started and went 3 innings. He allowed 1 run on 5 hits and 4 BB. He had 3 Ks. Brian Steinocher (2-8) took the loss going 2 innings. He allowed 5 runs on 8 hits. He had 1 K. Ryan Phillips threw 3 scoreless innings. He allowed 1 hit and did not walk a batter. He had 4 Ks. Argenis Diaz went 3 for 5 and scored a run.
